It also contains minerals such as germanium, iron, and copper; all of which have healing properties. What’s more, the continous use of this juice helps trigger detoxification reaction in the body. If you are not fond of the bland taste of this juice, you can mix it with different special ingredients like citrus and herbs to churn out the best from them.
