Broccoli to Boost your Calcium

A bright green, refreshing juice, I know that I will make this one again and again.  It was just delicious and lovely for Summer.  This broccoli booster (from Juice & Smoothies, page 88)  juice includes:  broccoli, apples and lemon juice, on ice.

Some health benefits I learned about ... Broccoli
  • And who said I needed milk? Just one cup of broccoli juice a day (not that you would need to drink it every day I think) provides you with enough calcium to help build strong bones.  It is way better for you then cow's milk because it doesn't contain any saturated fat either
  • Good for the twins. Broccoli's anti-estrogen compound helps remove excess estrogen - linked to breast cancer
  • It also helps you poop.  Broccoli, full of fiber, promotes good colon health and prevents constipation
  • Too much Summer sun? Broccoli helps repair skin damage
