Key Ingredient: Rainbow Chard

Rainbow chard is a variety of Swiss chard with vibrantly colored stalks. That color is thanks, in part, to the concentration of betalains present. These phytonutrients have been shown to suppress pro-inflammatory enzymes cyclooxygenase (COX) and lipoxygenase (LOX). Swiss chard also contains flavonoids like quercetin and kaempferol, which act as antihistamines and reduce allergic reactions and inflammatory responses in the body. All of these compounds acting together make rainbow chard an excellent anti-inflammatory food to include in your diet.

In addition, Swiss chard is one of the most vitamin- and mineral-rich green vegetables. It has been shown to be an excellent food for blood sugar regulation and cardiovascular health.

The apples, grapes, and pineapple work together to mellow out the stronger flavor associated with the rainbow chard, making this a tasty and nutritious juice recipe.
