Fire Me Up
Fire Me Up
Organic: pineapple, cucumber, kale, silverbeet, jalapeño
Tasting notes: If you like chilli, this juice is for you: the cucumber balances the pineapple’s sweetness to give a refreshing drink with a little kick from the jalapeno.
As the name suggests, this juice will fire everything up and get things working on the inside. Bromelain in pineapple is known to break down protein fast in the body, and in doing so can help speed up digestion, reducing both bloating and constipation in the process.
Jalapeños contain capsaicin which will literally fire up and boost your metabolism. It doubles energy expenditure for three hours after a meal, and the heat it creates prevents fluid retention by helping you sweat out excess water.
Cucumber can aid in hydration (hence a great hangover preventative), weight management, boost your metabolism, prevent fluid retention and constipation, and being packed with many of the B vitamins they are great for stress. It has the winning benefit of giving you an all over flow.
The spinach in this juice also aids in digestion and oxygenates the blood for a powerful effect - it increases energy expenditure and will also flood the body with iron which is also essential in keeping your energy reserves going.
Kale is full of antioxidants, very high in nutrients, low in calories, and is a powerful “fire me up” addition for powering through life.
