Brighten up your day with a vibrant cup, overflowing with the flavors and nutrients of colorful fruits and vegetables! Orange and yellow-colored fruits, like oranges and mangoes, contain high doses of antioxidants such as beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, flavonoids, and lycopene. These nutrients are known to improve the health of your eyes, reduce the risk of prostate cancer, and lower bad cholesterol and blood pressure, all while helping you build healthy joints. Speaking of joints, turmeric also contains curcumin that fights inflammation for those with long-term or sporadic joint pains. Ginger adds an extra burst of nutrients with anti-inflammatory properties. And a pinch of cayenne pepper not only wakes up your taste buds, but research has shown that it can also increase your metabolism.
