THE Morning SPECIAL
This beetroot-based beauty is your liver’s new best friend thanks to the antioxidant betalain, which will protect it after it’s taken a beating.
Yes, the betalain can help soothe your liver after last night’s debauchery, but Polish researchers say it can repair previous damage, too. Bonus.
Sure, you’ve been drinking it in smoothie form for ages, but did you know that spinach can pep you up after a heavy night and keep you feeling alert?
Vitamin K improves cognitive function and memory. Don’t forget it.
More than just your nan’s festive favourite, dates were found by a study at London Metropolitan University to be rich in selenium, which supports the immune system. Plus, the natural sweeteners contain fluoride to ward off tooth decay. Your dentist will be pleased.
