Health Benefits


Apples are amazingly advantageous to health, particularly where the brain is concerned; it is thought that consuming apples can aid to slow the incipience of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. They also aid to reduce cholesterol and support healthy blood sugar levels. And because they are low in calories, apples make an excellent snack for people who are trying to lose or maintain a healthy weight.


We usually take the advantages of consuming carrots for granted, retaining only that we’re assumed to eat them to have healthy eyesight. But there are various other benefits to our health associated with eating carrots. Juice from carrots has been conferred to kill leukemia cells in a recent study and carrots, in common, seem to have strong anti-cancer qualities. They are also one of the great sources of vitamin A and have an excess of other vitamins and minerals that include vitamin C, potassium and calcium.


Notwithstanding being comprised mostly of water, therefore helping to keep you hydrated, celery is also a surprisingly great source of almost every vitamin and mineral the body needs to thrive. It comprises nearly 40% of the daily requirement of vitamin K per 100g serving. It is a low-calorie food that is very satiating, which makes it useful to those consuming low-calorie diets.


A one-cup serving of spinach contains around 7 calories, yet is a rich source of vitamins A, C and K and minerals like iron and magnesium. This makes spinach an excellent ingredient in weight loss smoothies. Health benefits of consuming spinach include good quality blood cell production, improvement in the symptoms of iron deficiency caused anemia and stronger bones.


For relief from nausea, inflammation, and pain add ginger to your smoothie! It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects, which is crucial since many pain and health problems can be traced back to inflammation somewhere it shouldn’t be. Ginger is also advantageous in maintaining a healthy digestive system and has been shown to be useful at alleviating symptoms of morning sickness.
