Juicing vegetables is a great way to increase the amount of minerals and vitamins in your diet. It’s often difficult to consume as many vegetables we need to get our daily fix of nutrients so I would definitely recommend introducing juicing into your lifestyle. The nutrients are easily assimilated by our bodies and enter our system much quicker and easier than if we were to sit down and eat a big plate of them, (which lets be honest isn’t that tempting!!)
Beetroot is great for lowering blood pressure, carrots and apples are full of cancer fighting antioxidants and ginger acts as an anti-inflammatory. (Inflammation in cell tissues promotes the growth of cancer)
Try to use organic produce to reduce your consumption of pesticides and insecticides, but if that’s not possible, peel the carrots and wash all the apples.
Juice and drink:
- 6 carrots
- 3 medium sized beetroot (raw beetroot – not cooked)
- 3 apples
- half an inch ginger
