This cocktail contains a variety nutrients from its fresh ingredients. Cranberries are loaded with antioxidants which can help protect the heart, and they have bacteria-fighting properties which protect the stomach. Aloe juice is also high in antioxidants and can help boost immunity, cleanse the digestive system, reduce inflammation and promote healthy skin. Ginger is great for digestive health, and can have a calming effect on nausea.
