21 Day Juice Fast Journey - Day 17

Day 17 took me back to Whole Foods Market smoothie bar

KALE KICK START  is a great way to start the day (kale, blueberries, grapes, banana, pineapple juice). Kale has been dubbed "the queen of greens", it is among the most highly nutritious vegetables. It is an excellent source of carotenes, vitamins C, vitamin B6, and manganese; with only 20 calories. A top choice for fasting, kale is a great detox food. Kale is filled with fiber and sulfur, both great for detoxifying your body and keeping your liver healthy.




READY SET REVIVE   is great for the afternoon pick-up (strawberry, mango, banana, apple, carrot juice)

In addition to vitamin C, strawberries are an excellent source of the trace mineral manganese, which is essential for maintaining healthy bone structure, absorbing calcium, creating enzymes that build bone and a host of other benefits, including proper functioning of your sex hormones.
Considering the growth in the 65+ population, aging issues come to mind, particularly neurological concerns. According to researchers at Harvard’s Brigham and Woman’s Hospital, in a study published in the Annals of Neurology, strawberries (and other berries) can delay cognitive impairments by up to 2.5 years.
