Watercress Detox Blend

watercress-juice

Watercress is the unsung hero of the green world. Watercress is an anti-inflammatory that can help to clear up skin conditions like acne and eczema. Watercress is also a powerful liver detoxifier that can help to increase energy and overall health. Watercress has a lot of vitamin K, which can help with bone strength and blood clotting. Vitamin C is also concentrated in watercress, which can work as an immune booster. Most of the calories in watercress come from protein, which can be very helpful for those that follow a vegan or vegetarian diet.

This juice combines the tartness of a green apple, the earthiness of watercress, the sweetness of a red apple, and the sharpness of celery and lemon. The flavors are well rounded and balanced so that the juice is not too sweet, but not too earthy or bitter. If you prefer a sweeter juice, you can use two red apples or substitute pears instead of the apples. The juice is very hydrating and provides a super dose of vitamins to help power you through the cold and flu season. Add this juice to your weekly juice rotation to vary your greens and assist with better health.
