When we embrace our cycles and flow as a woman, good things happen.

We listen to what our body needs; respect its ebbs and flows, and adjust accordingly. When we’re menstruating, our bodies might be lower than usual on iron, we might feel a bit hum drum, or we might feel like: She-Raaaah! Bring it all on!

It can be such a powerful and intuitive time, and a perfect chance to really hear what you deeply do, and do not want because you are more strongly connected to your emotions…and don’t we know it! A few minutes of quiet meditation can reveal a lot.

Nourish your gorgeous female body and soul with this delicious morning juice designed especially to support you during your bleed; it’s packed to the brim with essential lady vitamins to make your cells sing!

Also, from an ayurvedic and chakra healing perspective, the vibrant red colour will give you extra energy if you’re feeling run down.

Menstrual flow morning juice:

2 small kiwis
1 pear
Juice of 1 lime
4 red rainbow chard leaves
1 stick celery (with the stringy ribs removed!)
Handful of spinach
About half a cup of beetroot juice
2 pitted dates

Optional: Topped with a small sprinkle of cacao and bee pollen.

So here’s the breakdown of all the goodness you’re getting.

Kiwi: High in Vitamin C, which helps you absorb the iron better. (Hurrah!)

Rainbow chard: Contains betalains, which are antioxidant, provides detox support and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Celery: Provides Vitamins K, B2 and B6, as well as fiber. Vitamin B is particularly good for those with heavy periods as they help essential fatty acids convert prostoglandins to regulate bleeding.

Spinach: Also provides Vitamins K, B2 and B6, as well as Vitamin A and K, and iron. Vitamin K has been used in the treatment of abnormal menstrual bleeding as it helps with clotting.

Beets: Contain Vitamin B6, magnesium, iron, and folic acid. Folic acid helps the bowel absorb all the nutrients properly and helps if you become anemic due to heavy bleeding.

Dates: Provide iron and other minerals. If you bleed quite heavily, you may feel fatigued and irritable due to reduced iron levels, so a top up can work wonders.

Pear: Contains Vitamin B2, C, E, copper and potassium.

Bee pollen will give you a natural energy boost if you are feeling lethargic, and cacao also provides some iron!

Wow! It packs a punch! Enjoy and let me know how you get on!

P.S. Use a blender to keep all the fiber—which is good for menstrual constipation!
