Benefits:

Beet Juice-
Beet juice improves blood structure and cures diseases of the circulatory system, large intestine, and digestive system. Beet juice dissolves stones in the liver, kidneys and bladder.
Beet juice is best known as a blood purifier and blood builder that helps in the creation of red blood cells.

Collard Green Juice-
Collard greens and the juice from collard greens are loaded with vitamin A. One cup of raw collard greens supplies you with almost half of your daily value of this vitamin.
When you drink collard green juice you get the benefit of vitamin C working to prevent free radical damage to your body’s cells.
A cup of raw collard greens contains 5 percent of your daily value of calcium, and it is well known that calcium contributes to bone health.
Vitamin K is another benefit you get from juicing collard greens. This vitamin, like calcium, is beneficial to bone health.

Fresh Apple Juice-
Fresh apple juice is an effective sweetener for vegetable juices that may not taste very good on their own such as this one.Β  Juicing apples is a way to get a massive amount of the fruit’s nutrients into your body quickly. Since the fiber is removed, the fruit is basically “pre-digested,” and easily absorbed.
Apple juice is rich in flavanoids and polyphenols, which are both strong antioxidants and can help detoxify the body of harmful substances.

Bananas Blended-
Studies show that the high amounts of potassium in bananas can lower one’s blood pressure, which in turn lessens the possibility of atherosclerosis, heart attack and stroke.
Along with lowering blood pressure, potassium prevents the weakening of the body’s bones. A high sodium intake, which is typical of many American diets, can cause excessive amount of calcium to be lost through the urine, which threatens not only the strength and general health of the bones, but also negatively affects blood clotting, proper muscle contraction, and normal nervous system function. The potassium found in bananas neutralizes the high amounts of sodium in one’s diet, thus allowing for healthy amounts of calcium to remain within the body.

Shots! Shots! Shots! Bottoms up!
