Perfectly Purple Juice

This juice is a powerhouse of anti oxidants!

Beets are a unique source of phytonutrients called betalains. Betanin and vulgaxanthin are the two best-studied betalains from beets, and both have been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support.

Plums contain carotenoids and polyphenols – these have excellent anti-oxidant properties.

Cabbage has a long list of beneficial health properties that have been shown to reduce risk factors for disease. Cabbage juice may help to heal peptic and duodenal ulcers due to its natural glutamine content. Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid that can reduce inflammation and improve the integrity of the lining of the digestive tract. Red cabbage also contains anthocyanin, a potent anti-oxidant.
