The Hydrate Yo’self, Before You Wreck Yo’self Juice

Hydrating yourself no matter what the season is very important.  I know I get those pesky reminder headaches during Summer, that just scream you haven’t been drinking enough water!  and lets face it sometimes you just don’t feel like drinking all that water.

This juice is a great way to hydrate yo’self and get some nutrients in at the same time, to sweeten the pot it also tastes pretty darn good.

Made up of grapefruit, cucumber and green apples, this just is filled with all that high water content fruits, but what else will this juice help with?

GRAPEFRUIT HEALTH BENEFITS

  1. Help prevent cancer:  With high vitamin C levels and filled with antioxidants, grapefruit can help combat the formation of free radicals in the body.
  2. Anti ageing:  Vitamin C plays a vital role in the formation of collagen, the main support system of skin.
  3. Weight loss: Grapefruit can help kickstart digestion and help aid weight loss.

CUCUMBER HEALTH BENEFITS

  1. Gives you energy: Cucumber is a great pick me up.  Cumbers are a great source of b vitamins, that will help give you an energy boost.
  2. Flushes out toxins:  All the water in cucumber is a great toxin remover.
  3. Dental hygiene: Cucumber juice refreshes and heals  diseased gums.

GREEN APPLE HEALTH BENEFITS
