Why drink it?

  • Squash’s bright orange flesh comes from the carotenoids which our body converts into vitamin A, essential for gene expression, good eyesight and a healthy immune system. Squash also has lots of vitamin C which is important for proper immune function, collagen synthesis (think great skin!) and antioxidant support. It is also high in fibre and low in calories, so can support healthy weight loss and promote good digestive health.


    Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable which has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It is rich in indole-3-carbinol, which supports female health by facilitating estrogen metabolism in the liver.


    Ginger helps soothes and relax the digestive system and is a powerful anti-inflammatory. It also has antioxidant properties and can help boost your immune system.


    Flax seeds are high in healthy omega 3 fatty acids and are an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble fibre which is very helpful for supporting good digestive health by increasing bowel motility. Flaxseeds also promote a feeling of fullness, so can be included as part of healthy weight loss.
