What does green juice do for you?

Green juice boosts your health in a variety of ways. There are two different ways to prepare the juice, in a blender which is the one I rather use since drinks made in a juicer do not have the benefit of fiber.

One of the benefits of drinking green juice daily is it is rich in antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, green juices aid in healthy skin. ( I’m really noticing good changes in my skin, Yayy! ) These antioxidants help to rid your skin of harmful toxins which may lead to acne or sun damage. Vitamin A, on the other hand, is crucial for cell growth and regeneration.
