The Best Greens Juice

I absolutely love Bolthouse Farms juices. The Greens Goodness Smoothie wins on how healthy it is though. It's a great pick me up when you're hungry before a meal, instead of snacking. I got used to snacking late at night and decided to pick this up to replace the bad calories I'd normally be ingesting at this time. Don't be scared by the name smoothie either. Calm down, it's not really that thick! Yea it says "smoothie" on the container for those of you who wanna puke at the thought of a thick greens juice but in my opinion it's thinner or goes down better than V8 Low Sodium which I also love.

It all boils down to Chlorophyll. Chlorophyll not to be mixed up with chloroform (that makes people go unconscious) is a major detoxifier for our body, it's rich in antioxidants, it naturally attaches to heavy metals like lead and mercury and sweeps through our system taking all the bad stuff with it such as indigestible materials found in foods. Chlorophyll is found in wheat grass, barley grass, and chlorella (a green algae) and is what gives plants its green color and various enzymes that help it thrive and fight diseases, especially cancer. Spirulina and blue green algae are rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, fatty acids and carotenoids. All these ingredients combined make for a great recipe for heavy metal buildup removal and detox. Cilantro can also be combined to your greens juice if you plan to make your own. It also removes heavy metals.

I find that it's economical to buy it rather than finding all these ingredients listed and making it on your own. Buying the pill form is not the same due to discrepancies found with proper dosing and absorption. Pill forms of many natural ingredients sometimes do more harm than good. Don't worry, the taste is sweet, there are no added sugars as you can see the nutrition and ingredients here:

Here's the best part, no preservatives, artificial flavors, or genetically modified ingredients!

 Cheers! Drink to your weight loss and/or to your health! The choice is yours!
