Dearest Juice Enthusiasts,

Thank you for all the likes and shares of my previous recipes!  I sincerely appreciate it :)

When I first began getting into juicing I was amazed that there seemed to be a juice for any issue I was having.. energy, digestion, immune system, etc.  What I didn’t realize, was there are so many juices for your mind also.

I am an anxious person, so when I found out kiwis are great for anxiety and stress.. I had to find out for myself.  I am happy to report that I sincerely felt more calm after drinking this kiwi juice.  Here’s a recipe I made.. I can’t wait to hear what you guys think about it!  Happy juicing!

Recipe here:

3 kale leaves with ribs

2 stalks celery

2 peeled kiwis

1 apple

1 small handful parsley

(optional: add ginger to make it more spicy)

How are kiwis good for anxiety and stress?

  • Kiwis contain serotonin (say, what?!) This is the feel-good chemical in our brains & is in charge of our mood.  The kiwi has a calming effect due to this.
  • Kiwis contain a high amount of magnesium which helps relieve stress and increase concentration.

Why juice kiwis?

  • Full of antioxidants, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, iron, and potassium.
  • Kiwis are incredible for your skin– they help fight wrinkles and detoxify your body from the inside out, which makes for an beautiful complexion of your skin.
  • Helps repair connective tissues and can speed up healing skin wounds.
  • Perfect to drink after your workout to get an electrolyte surge.
