Violet Enchantment

Summarygrape-fennel-juice
This juice is a beautiful purple color, and is very sweet. This is a great juice to turn the kiddies on to, but it also has a mess of vitamins and anti-aging antioxidants to magically reduce those wrinkles. The fennel has a slightly sweet flavor, to counteract the bitterness of the cabbage. The grapes and apple tip the scales on the sweetness factor, making this a savory drink, while providing a healthy dose of fruits and a bit of leafy, cruciferous veggies for the day.
Red cabbage is a great source of dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, and iron. Cabbage has been shown to prevent macular degeneration, boost immunity, keep skin and eyes healthy and moist, and contribute to bone and muscle health. Fennel has properties that reduce flatulence, so adding fennel to this juice will help reduce the gassiness that cabbage is well known for. Fennel also reduces hypertension.
Red grapes can reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. Grapes can also prevent infections, reduce allergic reactions, and fend off symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. Red grapes are also rich in resveratrol, which has been shown to reduce the risk of stroke by relaxing the blood vessels and preventing constriction.
