Nutritional Components :

This juice has a tad more fruit juice than  normally recommended for green drinks but that is because hopefully you’ll be drinking this after you’ve lost a lot of calories, electrolytes and sweat! If you need to dial back the fruit juice, you can cut the fruit ingredients in half.

  • Watermelon: Has a high water content for fast hydration and lycopene that helps with skin protection from too much sun exposure.
  • Green Apple: Provides potassium and magnesium that helps with headaches associated with dehydration.
  • Cucumber: One of the best vegetables for natural hydration.
  • Celery: A natural source of sodium, potassium, magnesium, chloride, and phosphorus.
  • Orange: A high dose of vitamin C that can aid the immune system.
  • Romaine: Another nice dose of magnesium to aid in dehydration and calcium for bone health.
