Cut out the stems, remove the seeds, and mix sweet and tart apples for the best fresh juice taste. Juicing the peel will greatly increase the antioxidant of the juice. The peels and skins of fruits and vegetables are where you will find the majority of antioxidants. This is their protection against oxidative damage as a result of sun exposure. Flavonoids are the type of antioxidant found most abundantly in apples and their peel.

Kiwi fruit is an excellent source of vitamin C, helping to keep our immune system strong and our skin firm. Vitamin C is needed to create collagen, the elasticated sticky substance that binds our skin cells together and keps the skin looking young.

Vitamin A is the nutrient most associated with eye health (and carrots) and is actually one of the most important nutrients for eyes.

Vitamin C and E don’t have as high a profile as vitamin A for eye health, but they also play an important role in the well being of our eyes. Like blackberries, apples and Kiwi.
