Leafy green vegetables are especially remarkable because they contain such concentrated amounts of vitamins and minerals. There are barely any carbohydrates in leafy greens, and the carbs that are present digest slowly, which means they won’t spike your blood sugar levels. We love having kale in our green juices because of all of its health benefits: it is extremely high in vitamins K, A, C, and E and contains high levels of the minerals manganese, copper, calcium, potassium, iron, and magnesium. Not to mention, it is full of fiber and even contains protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Greens 1 is excellent for preventing disease, promoting cardiovascular health and natural detoxification, and reducing inflammation.
