... celery juice provides the perfect after workout drink ...
Celery. While it's very subtle, the salty taste of celery comes from its very good supply of sodium, which, balanced with potassium, provides the perfect post-workout recovery drink, replacing depleted electrolytes and offsetting muscle cramps and fatigue.
Cucumber. Cucumbers are a great post-workout drink as well because they provide a dose of B vitamins and rehydrate and replenish most of the vitamins needed in a single day. Cucumbers are also a great source of silica, which promotes joint health and can relieve arthritis pain.
Protein. As well, if you are concerned with protein supplementation, green leafy vegetables, most notably spinach and collard greens, are very good sources of protein.
Alkaline. Furthermore, green juice is highly alkalinizing and very rich in minerals and enzymes. After an intense workout, your body will crave these vital nutrients to help in the recovery process.
Electrolytes. Highly abundant in potassium rich juices, electrolytes are crucial for post-workout as they help support your fitness and limit muscle cramps, fatigue and headaches.
Magnesium. The mineral magnesium can be found in green juices, especially Swiss chard, kale and spinach, and helps prevent muscle cramping.
Vitamin C rich juices - like broccoli, spinach, oranges, etc. - boost the immune system to keep you strong and healthy to complete workouts.
So, try it. Put in a tough workout and follow it with a tall green juice and see just how amazing you feel.
