The Benefits of Going Green

The Benefits of Going Green

When we live such busy lives, minor health problems such as aches and pains, low energy, and lack of mental clarity seem to take a backseat to everything else. More than likely all of these issues come down to one thing: chronic inflammation.

While chronic inflammation can cause some very serious health issues, you can reduce and even completely eradicate many of them just by simply maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Our green juice is an easy step to help you get there, but first let’s talk about inflammation and how it affects daily life.

If we compare your body to a bank, your immune system would be the security guards. This being said, when a stimulus enters your body the immune system uses inflammation to fight it off. Much like a security guard would fight off robbers in a bank. A stimulus could include a virus, toxin, injury or disease. Now I know what you’re probably thinking: isn’t inflammation a good thing if it fights off foreign stimuli? The simple answer is that it depends. The “good” kind of inflammation is called Acute Inflammation, and that is your immune system’s response to the bad things entering your body. Acute inflammation for example is when you hit your knee on a table and it swells for a little while and turns red, which is actually a really good thing that promotes blood flow, and the pain felt gives your body the signals to pause and rest. However, chronic inflammation is where the problems begin to arise. Chronic inflammation is when the normally positive response goes haywire, and unfortunately, most of the time we don’t even realize it’s happening. This can be caused by lifestyle habits many of us have such as eating processed or artificial foods, stress, and lack of sleep. While these seemingly invisible causes don’t lead to immediate effects, over time they add up.

Most of the symptoms of chronic inflammation such as constant fatigue, weight gain, high blood pressure, skin issues, and more, are all commonly overlooked or thought to be caused by other things.

But what do you do about it? For starters: green juice. Green Juice is one of the healthiest drinks that you can put into your body. Our green juice is made of greens, vegetables, and a few fruits which provide your body with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and enzymes. It also contains chlorophyll, the pigment that gives plants their green color, promotes cell health and functionality within your body, and also detoxifies, reduces inflammation, improves your immune system, and regulates blood sugar.

Now, if you’ve never tasted our green juice, you’re probably a little apprehensive to the taste (I was too). But our juice is actually delicious. By adding lemon and pineapple along with cucumber we add a light and refreshing sweeter taste, without adding any sugar.

So how does our green juice help chronic inflammation? The greens, vegetables, and fruits are all alkaline forming and anti-inflammatory whole foods, which are powerful against inflammation, pain, and disease. In addition to these, adding lemon juice and ginger to our juice boosts the effects of the other ingredients! Try some today and see for yourself.
