our secret ingredient is love
here are the rest of them
A hangover cure
I am a very cool source of B vitamins so I am a great hangover cure and I am a natural replacement for fizzy drinks. I am also 95 percent water, keeping your body hydrated while helping to eliminate toxins.
No need to call the doctor
I am rich in vitamin C, vitamin A, riboflavin, vitamin B6. I have loads of minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, iron, potassium, copper, zinc which are good for your blood. I am good at reducing your blood pressure. I also work to stabilise you blood sugar levels.
A natural mood elevator
I am virtually fat free and really low in calories. Beetsides that, I have an extremely low Glycaemic Load of 2.9 which means I convert into sugars very slowly and therefore help to keep your blood sugar levels stable.
Light and leafy
I am light and leafy and low on calories. My natural salts relax your muscles so I am a perfect decompressor in the evenings.
For a healthy heart
Highly nutritious, I am a great source of folic acid. My flavonoids have been known to function as antioxidants that combine with oxygen radicals in the blood to help prevent damage to cells.
The magnesium and potassium I contain, help to lower blood pressure. Both can help alleviate stress on the body's circulatory system.

For Soluable fiber
You didn't think that was possible right? Well, it is and here is why I am good for you.
Soluble fiber helps keep blood sugar balanced by slowing the absorption of carbohydrates. It also lowers cholesterol by carrying it out of the body.
An unexpected friend
I am better than an orange with more vitamin c. I am also blessed with ample amounts of thiamin, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium, and plenty of dietary fiber, vitamin K, vitamin B6, folate and manganese.
My minerals, especially magnesium, and my essential oils, soothe the nervous system. One large stalk can also deliver up to 10 percent of your daily need for vitamin A, which protects the eyes and prevents age-related degeneration of vision.
A citric wonder
I am one of nature's seven top sources of potassium, a mineral that promotes clear thinking, aids in normalizing blood pressure, and works with sodium to regulate the body's water balance. My citric acid can be effective in treating acne too.
I am an excellent source of beta-carotene and I contain high amounts of fibre. If you were wondering beta-carotene is very important for improved eyesight, glowing skin, and normal liver function.
A powerful antioxidant
I am a pectin pear. Actually all of us pears contain pectin, which is a water soluble fiber. I have more pectin than apples! This makes me great in helping you to lower cholesterol. I am also a good source of vitamin C and vitamin E. I am best consumed with the skin on!
Close to your Chest
I am full of Lycopene which is a type of carteniod that gives me my lovely colour. There are two reasons why more of me is good for you. I reduce your risk of breast cancer and I promote heart health.
Not just water
Honestly, I am full of good stuff thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, manganese, selenium, choline, lycopene and betaine.
I am full of potassium which rids the body of excess sodium, therefore lowering the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure. Even though I am paler in colour than oranges, I contain about 30 times more beta-carotene.
I am anti-everything! I am antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, anticarcinogenic, antimutagenic and anti-inflammatory. I am loaded with many healthy nutrients such as protein, dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, sodium, potassium, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium and zinc.
An alkalising fruit
Although I am acidic before you digest me, I contain many alkaline minerals that help to balance out the body after digested. I am full of potassium, an electrolyte mineral that is responsible for helping the heart function well. I am also rich in citrus limonoids, which help to fight cancer including that of the skin, lung, breast, stomach and colon.
I am great at getting your digestive (not creative) juices flowing. Once I'm in your tummy, I work on improving the absorption of essential nutrients in the body. I'm a known ninja to cancer compounds and also clear microcirculatory channels including the sinus.
The queen of greens

The iron plant
There was a reason Popeye loved me! I am low in calories and I am an excellent source of iron which is essential for oxygen transport throughout the bloodstream. My magnesium and vitamin K, help maintain strong, healthy bones and aid in muscle relaxation.
Flesh eating enzyme
Do you feel that tangy bite when you eat me? That would be the flesh eating Bromelain enzyme found in my core which helps to digest food by breaking down the protein particles within it.
For berry brainy people
I am full of anthocyanidins, which is a type of flavonoid and I help keep you sharp as you get older. My compounds, not found in many other fruits, are known to cross the blood-brain barrier and locate in learning and memory centers in the brain.
