This recipe is great if you are into your sport and exercise. It's full of fast acting carbohydrates from the pineapple and banana to give energy, plus the beetroot and greens have a good source of nitrates. These increase blood flow, and therefore oxygen flow to the muscles, leading to decreased lactic acid burn and increased performance! Because of these nitrates, this juice can also be great for getting more blood flow to the brain.
You can also just drink this juice because it tastes nice :-)
