Strawberries contain anthocyanin and catechin, which are powerful natural anti-aging chemical compounds. They are also anti-inflammatory, fight the damage of free radicals and promote brain and eye health. Strawberries are also high in vitamin A, vitamin C and manganese.
Blueberries are a secret antioxidant weapon, making it among the top foods for antioxidants. In addition to promoting growth of probiotics, which helps aid digestion, blueberries support heart health and restore hormone balance for clear, radiant skin. You can also find high levels of vitamin K and vitamin C levels in blueberries.
Why Mint Leaves?
Did you know mint has been used for centuries as an herb to speed up digestion? Mint also contains iron, fiber, vitamin A and potassium.
There’s a reason lemon is a detoxification staple. It jumpstarts your metabolism, promotes a healthy immune system and is packed with electrolytes and energy-boosting vitamins. The citrus bioflavonoids found in lemon have also been said to lower blood sugar and help prevent kidney stones.
