Pineapples also contain vitamin C, an antioxidant required for growth and repair of muscle tissue that promotes healing.

Including two key hydrating vegetables such as celery and cucumber can add an extra punch. Celery, a hydrating vegetable made up mostly of water, helps replenish the sodium and potassium your body loses during exercise. Both nutrients are necessary to maintain proper mineral balance in our bodies. Low sodium and potassium can cause muscle cramping which can hinder performance and cause discomfort.

Cucumbers full of silica are ideal for supporting healthy joints and connective tissue. Cucumber juice with its pleasant neutral taste is very refreshing.  Like celery, it is made up of mostly water and is very hydrating.

Collard greens and kale not only add a dose of vitamin K, they also help regulate the body’s inflammation process.

Fueling your body with proper nutrition after a vigorous workout is key to building a stronger physique, and this juice will help!
