There are 13 types of vitamins and a whole load of minerals that your body needs to tick along nicely. Each of our smoothies and juices naturally combine some of these micronutrients (a fancy term to describe vitamins and minerals), which help you out in slightly different ways. Here's some of the natural goodness that's inside one of our old favourites:
Folate maintains the normal function of your brain, immune system and blood formation. It also helps with the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, the process of cell division and normal amino acid synthesis.
Potassium maintains the normal function of your nervous system, muscles and blood pressure.
Manganese looks after the normal formation of connective tissue, the maintenance of bones and your normal energy-yielding metabolism. It also protects your cells from oxidative stress.
Vitamin C supports the normal function of your immune system, increases iron absorption and helps reduce tiredness and fatigue. A 150ml glass of orange juice with bits will give you 46% of your daily vitamin C.
Enjoy our drinks as part of a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet.
However, a lot of people in the UK aren't getting enough fibre in their diets. While we should be eating or drinking about 30g of fibre a day, most adults are getting a lot less than that.
All our smoothies are a natural source of fibre and provide 1-4g of it per 150ml serving. If you're wondering whether the fibre in one of our smoothies is the same as the fibre in a piece of fruit or veg, it turns out it is. We took a few bottles into the labs at the University of Leeds and under a microscope, the fibre cells look just like the ones you'd find in whole fruit and veg. So that's good news.
