A bit of information about the ingredients:
Lemons and blackberries are great sources of vitamin C; vitamin C supports the immune system and helps repairs all our body tissues. Parsley contains vitamin K and phytonutrients that can kill harmful bacteria. Bananas are a rich source of minerals and they help the body digest food so that nutrients can be absorbed. Avocados are a source of healthy fat; fats are needed to help the body absorb fat-soluble vitamins (vitamin A, D, E and K).
