Purple Ginger Smoothie

Card image cap

This smoothie is a delicious nutritional wonder. It combines the detoxifying virtues of beetroot, with the anti-inflammatory and toning properties of ginger. The smoothie’s intense purple color is remarkably appealing. 

Betacyanin is the substance giving beets their rich red color. This pigment helps increase the oxygen-carrying ability of your blood. Beet juice is highly alkaline, and the presence of betaine helps stimulate liver cell function.

Because eye bags are often caused by insufficient ability of the liver to cleanse impurities, especially after age 40, beets are a valuable dietary addition for addressing eye bags.
