Juicing is one of the best ways to receive vital nutrients that are essential for optimum health. Many people invest in a juicer but lose enthusiasm for over time. However, mixing up your juice recipes can spice things up a bit as well as provide the health benefits that you were looking for when you bought a juicer. Below are some things that you can try that both taste great and offer your body a positive jolt.
Quick And Easy Green Juice
3 Celery Sticks
6 Kale Leaves
3 Green Apples
1 Unpeeled Lemon
The only preparation that is needed to create Quick And Easy Green Juice is to chop the celery sticks, slice the apples and cut the lemon in half. Total preparation time is likely to be a minute or two at most. All of the ingredients should then be juiced and served immediately.
The main health benefits in this juice come from the celery and kale. The apples and lemon are more to make the juice taste nice although they do contain vitamins and minerals. The celery offers a wide range of health benefits. It has an anti-inflammatory effect which will bring relief to people who suffer from joint pain, asthma and other conditions resulting in inflammation. The celery also contains minerals which are shown to be stress relievers such as magnesium. Kale is high in fiber and also rich in components which support the immune system. Kale also supports healthy liver functioning which has a detoxifying effect on the body.
Super Simple Carrot and Kale Juice
6 Chopped Carrots
4 Kale Leaves
This is one of the simplest healthy juices in existence but one which has many benefits. Simply blend the carrots and kale and serve immediately.
Carrots are incredibly rich in beta-carotene. This acts as a natural antioxidant which has been shown to help slow and reverse cell damage which occurs as a result of aging. Carrots can also have a detoxifying effect on the body as they are rich in Vitamin A. Vitamin A has been shown to help the body remove toxins from circulation. The kale present in this juice can help to fight cancer. This benefit results from the fact that it is rich in organosulfur. The kale also aids with efficient and healthy digestion due to the fact it is high in fiber.
Tomato and Greens Detox Juice
4 Green Lettuce Leaves
6 Sprigs of Parsley
Half An Unpeeled lemon
This juice is packed with healthy ingredients and also has a deliciously rich and complex taste due to the presence of the parsley and radish.
The parsley found in this juice offers far more than just taste. Regular consumption of parsley has been shown to help the heart and blood pressure. This is due to the fact it is rich in folic acid. It also supports correct kidney functioning due to its ability to help the body rid itself of excess levels of fluid. Parsley is also packed with various vitamins such as B, C and K. These offer benefits for the immune system, nervous system and bones. The tomatoes in this juice offer high levels of lycopene which can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease. They are also a great source of Vitamin C. The phosphorous and zinc present in radishes helps skin to look healthy and free of blemishes.
Heavenly Healthy Fruit Juice
Half A Pineapple
The only preparation that is needed ahead of making this juice is to peel the orange. This is due to the fact that orange peel can be damaging to some juicers. It is a great idea to scrape the peel for the pith however as this is rich in nutrients.
One of the enzymes present in pineapple is called bromelain which has been proven to act as a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. This makes this juice an excellent choice for people suffering with joint pains and other associated inflammation issues. The red color that is distinctive to strawberries is partly explained by the presence of chemicals known as anthocyanins. These have been proven to help the body burn the fat it has stored which makes this juice a great aid to a weight loss plan. The biotin found in strawberries offers myriad benefits for the skin and hair. Everyone knows that the oranges found in this Heavenly Healthy Fruit Juice are a great source of vitamin C. They also offer great levels of potassium which helps ensure the heart functions correctly.
Juicing is a great way to overcome years of bad dietary habits. Fresh nutrients from fruits and vegetables can do wonders for the body, and hopefully some of the recipes above can help you try new things with your juicer. I am a juicing addict and will have a few more posts on this topic in the future. Happy juicing.
