Why this is good for you
This juice is exploding with some of nature's super nutrients, enzymes, antioxidants and amino acids.
Wheatgrass and spirulina are two true 'super foods' which both contain a distinguished array of vitamins and minerals. The wheatgrass is also a rich source of chlorophyll, the undisputed top provider of 'liquid sunshine'. It is excellent at improving the function of the heart, the vascular system, the intestines and the lungs, as well as detoxifying the blood and the liver. Spirulina is a phenominal alga; it is supreme at harvesting the sun's energy and has been growing naturally for more than 3.5 billion years! It has been found to contain one of the most concentrated amounts of nutrients, phytonutrients and antioxidents of any plant.
This juice is exceedingly filling due to the addition of the avocado, which provides the body with the perfect balance of essential fatty acids - the 'friendly fats' that are vital for the body!
Both the cucumber and the lime are terrific at cleansing the body along with adding greatness to hair, skin and nails.
