Buying organic adds to the spectacular health effects of juice, but it is not necessary. Gratifying Green Juice is a wonderful way to enhance health, gain energy and ensure that your diet is complete with phytonutrients, polyphenols, vitamins and minerals. I love how fresh my place smells when I make this amazing, healthy drink and am incredibly grateful for its abundant health benefits.

Kale – Vitamins A, B, C, K and essential nutrients.
Chard – Vitams A, K, C, E, magnesium, manganese, iron & potassium.
