There’s a lot of hype at the moment about the benefits of superfoods and the power of green juice and supplements, but what are they for? How do greens benefit us?
Most of us don’t get anywhere near as much fruit and vegetables in our diet as we should. Even those of us that like to think we’re reasonably healthy and hit the gym are probably consuming too many acidic foods, messing with our body’s PH levels.
If you’re body is too acidic, you probably feel quite lethargic, you may have skin problems, stubborn body fat, and not to mention sleep problems and depression! Not the most attractive feeling, especially if you’re single and looking for love!
As I write this at the end of November, heading into the depths of winter with dark mornings, short dark days, fighting coughs and sneezes at the office, I’m probably not the only one feeling a bit drained and fatigued.
It’s the time of year when our faces and bodies get barely any sun, no vitamin D or fresh air. Yet it’s also a time when we’re being our most sociable, Christmas is approaching and we’re at parties, meeting up with old friends, looking for love or to attract that special someone just in time for the festive period.
So it’s not the best time to be pasty and feeling rough!
So how can greens juice make you more attractive?
Researchers at Leeds and St Andrews Universities have discovered that by eating enough fruit and vegetables, you get a healthier, more attractive glow than you would by getting a sun tan! The healthy glow from eating fruit and vegetables is known as ‘carotenoid coloration’ and three quarters of those surveyed said it was a more attractive look than ‘melanin coloration’.
“Healthy glow from fruit and vegetables more attractive than sun tan!”
So if fruit and vegetables can make you look more attractive, as well as provide loads of other health benefits, it makes sense to get as many quality nutrient rich fruit and veg down you as possible. One great way to consume all of your body’s vitamin and nutrient needs is through green juice!
Greens juice can provide you with nutrients and vitamins from different fruits and vegetables that many of us have never heard of, check out what it contains and the benefits below:
Moringa – Provides all of your body’s amino acid needs. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, needed to help build, grow and repair muscles.
Mint – nutritional herb which is known to help reduce stress, reduce indigestion and improve your skin.
Chlorella – high in protein and healthy polyunsaturated fats
Spirulina – a good source of plant protein and high in calcium and iron.
Beets – a superfood high in folate and manganese, known to help with bone development, healing wounds, and your metabolism.
Matcha Green Tea – high in antioxidants which reduce stress, regulates hormones and reduces appetite.

Turmeric – a spice that contains powerful antioxidants.
Coconut Water – high in potassium and helps transport vitamins around the blood stream.
Lemon – helps restore your PH levels and alkalize your body.
One of the most important parts of attractiveness is how you feel. If you feel good about yourself that will show through in your face and how you carry yourself giving you more confidence.
So whether you want to start feeling fresh and rejuvenated, have more energy, and want a healthy attractive glow, maybe you should consider greens juice.
