But what about the individual benefits of our Red Radiance ingredients: Red Beet, Strawberry & Apple?

Red Beets

Potassium, magnesium, fiber, phosphorus, iron; vitamins A, B & C; beta-carotene, beta-cyanine and folic acid are but a few of the many nutrients, vitamins and minerals that can be found in beets and beet greens. Beets are particularly beneficial to pregnant women, as the vitamin B and iron are very beneficial to new growth cells during pregnancy and replenishing iron in the woman’s body.  Beets are also a wonderful tonic for the liver, works as a purifier for the blood, and can prevent various forms of cancer.  In general, beets are a great addition to any dietary need, with their high volume of nutrients, delicious taste and multitude of uses.

Strawberries

One cup of strawberries contains an incredible 136% of the RDA of vitamin C, which is an effective antioxidant in helping to promote a healthy immune system as well as lowering blood pressure.  The phenols found in strawberries are well-known to fight against a variety of cancers. The vitamin C, folate, and the flavonoids contained in strawberries also make them a tasty defence against developing cancerous cells. Strawberries contain the chemical manganese, which fights against free radicals and oxidative stress.  Manganese also helps build strong bones and keeps the bone structure healthy. The fruit is rich in B-complex group of vitamins. It contains very good amounts of vitamin B-6, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and folic acid.

Red Apples

A new study shows that drinking apple juice could keep Alzheimer’s away and fight the effects of aging on the brain. Mice in the study that were fed an apple-enhanced diet showed higher levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and did better in maze tests than those on a regular diet. Red apples contain an antioxidant called quercetin and recent studies have found that quercetin can help boost and fortify your immune system, especially when you're stressed out.
