When the weather outside is frightful, an extra dose of vitamins and minerals can be just what your body needs to stay healthy. Especially if that body is growing or feeding a baby.
This delicious winter juice is loaded with vitamins A, B6 & C, all of which play an important role in strengthening your immune system.
Our winter cocktail is also brimming with folate, a nutrient essential to women in their first trimester. Folate plays a key role in the production of new and healthy red blood cells, helps prevent neural tube defects and aids in adequate baby and belly growth during pregnancy. Since Folate is important the moment your baby is conceived, this can be a great drink to add to your diet even if you're just thinking about having a baby.
And for all you nursing moms out there...this winter juice contains three natural lactogenics: carrots, beets and fennel. Yeah! Plus the additional nutrients are a great way to help maintain a balanced diet, especially if you are gluten-free and/or dairy-free.
So pull out the juicer ladies and enjoy this fabulous drink with any meal or snack. It's not only great for you but it tastes delicious!
