🙌 Green juices are the rock stars of the health world. They condense several servings of fruit 🍐🥭🍇🍉, vegetables🥑🥦🥬🥕, and other super foods into a single, easy-to-consume drink. Because so much is packed into one drink, green juices are incredibly nutrient-dense and have an impressive list of health benefits. That’s why they have so much appeal. There is simply no other way to provide this many benefits and nutrients in a single serving. Nothing compares.
Below are a few benefits you can expect with a daily green juice.
👉 All-Day Energy
When you’re feeling tired, what’s the first thing you reach for? Coffee? A risky energy drinks?
An estimated 9 out of 10 people are lacking in key vitamins and minerals. When your body is starved of nutrients, it simply won’t work the way it should, leaving you feeling fatigued.
Green juices are the perfect remedy. They provide a near-instant lift in energy. And unlike caffeine or synthetic stimulants, there’s no late-afternoon crash.
👉 Improves Gut Health
Your gut is the foundation of health. It can be the difference between depression and happiness. It affects nearly every aspect of your health. That’s why it’s critical to take steps to ensure your gut is healthy, and drinking green juice supports gut health.
That’s because green juices contain digestive enzymes and prebiotics. Some higher quality green juices even contain probiotics, good bacteria that are recognized for supporting gut health.
👉 Supports a Healthy Immune System
Green juices are one of the best ways to support a healthy immune system because they are packed full of nutrition.
Much like a car needs gas, oil, and lubricants, your immune system needs specific nutrients to run properly. Nutrients that must be constantly replenished. If they aren’t, things stop working.
Zinc deficiencies, for example, can make you significantly more susceptible to catching a cold or flu. A daily dose of vitamin C is also a must to help keep your immunity strong. Drinking a green juice every day is an easy way to replenish the nutrients your immune system needs. ... See MoreSee Less

We love providing nutritional advise to all our followers but we also love reading nutritional advise from our inspirational peers in the dental field. One particular post we 💯% agree with is the amount of sugar we hear on the daily from our patients.
Despite the "health bubble" that many of us all live in, you'd be surprised how many patients we see who still continue to drink a can or standard bottle of soft drink per day.
💁♀️ Did you know that the daily comsumption of a standard 600mL bottle of soft drink is approximately 20-25 kilos of sugar consumed per year‼ Don't be fooled by the words DIET, ZERO or NO SUGAR, 🙅♀️ when it comes to these types of drinks, their pH level sits lower than the acid naturally found in our stomachs. 😳
A healthy mouth and body all begin with what we allow ourselves to consume. Opting for healthier daily alternatives like fruit infused water (liked the options in the picture above 🍇🍓🍋) are better ways we can help our most important machines AKA our bodies, to function optimally and to do the best of it's ability. This starts with you and the choices you make. 🙌
SO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE.

It breaks our hearts to see patients holding back – wanting to truly express joy or laugh out loud, but hide their smile behind their hands or a tight-lipped closed mouth.
Our philosophy here at Island Dental is that EVERYONE deserves to have a smile that makes them feel gorgeous and confident. A bright white smile can change your life – believe us, we have the happy patients to prove it!
But we know a lot of you feel nervous or intimated by the potential COST of cosmetic dentistry. An investment in improving your smile is truly priceless.
We have competitive financing, with affordable payment plan options, and treatment plans we can break into stages to relieve the cost burden.

💁♀️ Who of us reach out for that piece of chocolate, or loaded with processed sugar snacks this time of the day...? We are all guilty of it right?
Good nutrition is key to living a healthy and optimum life anytime of the day, so choosing the right foods (most of the time) that fuel your body and it's organs is critical. As we can assure you that your body and teeth do not agree with all that processed sugar - especially at night. 🙅
The true definition of BLISS balls - These babies (pictured above ☝️) feature three ingrediants for boosting your mood in these dark winter months.
👉 Raw Cacao - packed with antioxidants
👉 Mucuna Pruriens - an active adaptogen, mucuna pruriens contains naturally occuring levodopa (L-dopa), a naturally occuring amino acid which transforms into dopamine in the brain. Boosted levels of dopamine promote overall sense of well-being.
👉 Rhodiola - increases the sensitivity of cells in the brain and nervous system.
Here is one of our favourites... Cacao Almond meal bliss balls topped with crushed freeze-dried raspberries, but try to stop at 1-2 serves and always brush your teeth, spit but do not rinse... before bedtime... 👌 ... See MoreSee Less
