Why this smoothie is great for you

  1. Beetroots are a great source of fibre, folate, potassium, iron, carotenoids and vitamin C. Consuming lots of foods high in carotenoids can help decrease risk of breast cancer.
  2. Pomegranate has several health benefits. It can help prevent or treat various disease risk factors including high blood pressure, high cholesterol and has inflammatory activities. It is demonstrated that certain components of pomegranate such as polyphenols have potential antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anticarcinogenic effects.
  3. Carrots are a particularly good source of carotenoids, fibre, vitamin K1 and potassium.
  4. Oranges are a healthy source of fibre, vitamin C, thiamine, folate, and antioxidants. All citrus fruits are high in carotenoid antioxidants, which are responsible for their rich colour.
