We love being rebels and we love rebelling against mediocre health! That’s why we’re helping you ramp up your body’s defences with these essential vitamins for health.  

You probably didn’t hit this blog by accident – you’re here because something inside you is craving more. More vitality, more zest, more energy… and guess what, you’re in the right place.  

Here at Rebel Kitchen Cleanse, we don’t just sip juices and we don’t jump on trends. We listen to the age-old wisdom of nature. So, take a breath and let us guide you through the essential vitamins for optimum health. 


The Lowdown:  

Feeling okay…. just, okay? We want you to feel amazing! That’s the power of Vitamin E.

This vitamin is akin to a cellular knight in shining armour, tirelessly guarding your cells against oxidative stress and damage. Vitamin E plays a pivotal role in maintaining your body’s defences, so they stay razor-sharp and ready for action 

Vitamin E is not just a single entity but a group of eight fat-soluble compounds, with alpha-tocopherol being the most beneficial. These compounds are potent antioxidants, neutralising harmful free radicals and protecting your cells from the oxidative damage that can lead to chronic diseases. 

You’ll find this vitamin in the tastiest of healthy fats like avocados. You also have olives that add a zing to your palate and almonds are bursting with Vitamin E too. 

The Rebel Move: 

Adopt the Mediterranean diet, which is scientifically proven to yield the best outcomes for longevity and vitality. It’s rich in foods that contain vitamin E, such as nuts, seeds and olive oil.  

The Mediterranean diet has been extensively studied and is lauded for its health benefits. It’s associated with a lower risk of heart disease, stroke and certain cancers and it promotes brain and gut health too. 

The Right Drink: 

If you’re looking to strengthen your Vitamin E, the Vanilla Almond mylk is the drink for you. 


The Lowdown: 

If you’re battling the sniffles or just feeling under the weather, it’s time to call in the cavalry. Vitamins A, D, Selenium, Folic Acid, Vitamin C and Iron are your immune system’s special forces. 

Vitamins A and D are crucial for maintaining the immune system. Vitamin A ensures the proper functioning of the heart, lungs, kidneys and other organs, while Vitamin D is essential for bone health and immune function.  

Selenium acts as a powerful antioxidant, helping to prevent cell damage, while Folic Acid is vital for new cell creation and may help prevent DNA changes that could lead to cancer.  

Vitamin C is famous for its role in supporting the immune system and is also a potent antioxidant. Lastly, Iron is essential for transporting oxygen in the blood and is important for the immune system. 

The Rebel Move:  

Eat the rainbow! Dark leafy greens, rich in Iron and Vitamin C, fortify your blood and immune system. Vibrant orange fruits and vegetables are loaded with Vitamin A and C, which help maintain your body’s mucous barriers and cellular immunity. And don’t forget to soak up some sun (your body will thank you for the Vitamin D).  

The Right Juice:  

The Classic Carrot is packed with Vitamin A.  



The Lowdown:  

Brain fog is the enemy of every rebel, it can cloud your day and dull your performance. Zinc is your secret weapon for mental clarity, contributing to normal cognitive function and keeping your thoughts sharp. This mineral is one of the most essential vitamins for health, particularly brain health. 

Zinc is involved in numerous aspects of cellular metabolism. It supports more than 300 enzymes that aid in metabolism, digestion, nerve function and many other processes. In the brain, Zinc plays a crucial role in neurotransmission and is essential for maintaining the connections between neurons. It also enhances memory and cognitive stability. 

The Rebel Move:  

Snack on pumpkin seeds or grab a bowl of whole grains. Pumpkin seeds are particularly high in Zinc and are an excellent choice for a cognitive boost.  

But why stop there? Expand your Zinc intake with other rich sources like cashews. 

The Right Drink:  

Cacao Cashew mylk is a great option to increase those levels of Zinc plus you get the indulgence of chocolate, so it’s a win. 



The Lowdown:  

Energy is the currency of Rebels and we need a full wallet. Vitamins B3, B6, B12, Folic Acid, Magnesium and Phosphorus are the master regulators of your metabolism, ensuring that every calorie you consume is converted into pure, usable energy. 

-Vitamin B3 helps convert food into energy and is vital for skin health and DNA repair. 

-Vitamin B6 is essential for amino acid metabolism and neurotransmitter synthesis. 

-Vitamin B12 is crucial for nerve tissue health, brain function and the production of red blood cells. 

-Folic Acid aids in the formation of DNA and is particularly important during periods of rapid growth. 

-Magnesium is involved in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body and is necessary for energy production. 

-Phosphorus helps form healthy bones and teeth and is needed for the body to make protein for the growth, maintenance and repair of cells and tissues. 

The Rebel Move:  

Wholegrains, peanuts, sesame seeds and that banana you’ve been eyeing – they’re not just snacks; they’re your ticket to an all-day energy fest. These foods are packed with the B-F-M-P nutrients. 

The Right Drink:  

The Vanilla Almond and Cacao Cashew mylks are a good source of certain B vitamins. 



The Lowdown:  

We all want beautiful skin, right? Well, Selenium and Vitamin C are your go-to for a glowing complexion.  

Selenium acts as a powerful antioxidant, protecting your skin from cellular damage and aging, while Vitamin C is fundamental for collagen production, keeping your skin firm and resilient. 

The Rebel Move:  

Brazil nuts and citrus fruits are your skin’s best friends. They’re the natural way to keep your selfie game strong. 

The Right Juice:  

Ruby Roots is bursting with Vitamin C. 


In a nutshell, harnessing essential vitamins for health is your ticket to a zestful life. Every vitamin plays a star role in our health – from Vitamin E’s protective shield to the B-vitamins’ energy spark
