Benefits of main ingredients
The health benefits of raspberries include antioxidants, detoxification effects, tons of vitamin C to support the immune system, and vitamin A which is great for vision. Raspberries are also a rich source of copper, iron and magnesium which are important factors in many body functions, notably the blood and muscles.
Lemons have a wonderful cleansing effect (especially the liver), they stimulate digestion and are incredibly alkalizing in the body. Like most citrus, lemons contain lots of vitamin C which is crucial for immune function. Lemon has even been known to kill intestinal worms!
Bananas are known for being a wonderful source of potassium, which plays an important role in muscular health. They also are a great source of dietary fiber which supports good digestive function.
