- 1/2 teaspoon of chlorella powder
Juice all ingredients and add chlorella. Drink it immediately, since all the benefits from juice comes from its freshness. As soon as you juice fresh ingredients you brake the cell walls of the nutrient rich fruits and vegetables open, activating vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients, chlorophyll and when they are exposed to oxygen, the process of oxidation defeats most part of drinking freshly squeezed juice. Oxidation can be easily observed on a cut apple, when it changes the color and becomes brown in just couple of minutes.
