Detox and Strengthening Juice for the festive season

24 November 2014

Healthy juices

The biggest issue with writing about these amazing superfoods is that there is never enough time or space to talk about all their wonderful properties.

A juice made from the above each day combined with some spring water will clean and strengthen your digestive system, improve your immune system and clean your body in time for Christmas. The new kinds of juicers which retain the plant fibre are ideal for preparing this kind of vegetable and fruit juice.

Try to ensure your veggies are organic, but if you are not sure wash them thoroughly to remove any pesticides and herbicides from the skin before juicing.

Our juice selection for the holiday season is:

  • Carrot
  • Celery
  • Beetroot
  • Kale
  • Blueberry
  • Ginger or mint

Some details about some of your in-season juice veggies.

Kale is loaded with nutrients ideal for wellbeing. Just some of the nutrients include calcium, vitamins A, C and K. It is also a good source of minerals copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus.

Celery is loaded with antioxidants like vitamin C and flavonoids, scientists have now identified at least a dozen other types of antioxidant nutrients in celery. It is high in silica too which helps strengthen your nails and hair. Celery is a fabulous diuretic and gently assists with removing unwanted fluid retention and puffiness.

Beetroot is known to contain large amounts of soluble fibre, flavanoids and betacyanin. Betacyanin is the compound that gives beetroot its purplish-red colour and is also a powerful antioxidant. It helps reduce the oxidation of LDL cholesterol and assists to stop this bad cholesterol depositing on the walls of the arteries. Beetroot assists constipation and raises the vitality of the bowel.

Blueberries are low GI, they contain powerful antioxidants and nutrients that make it classed as a superfood. Blueberries assist with the microcirculation of the eyes and eye health in general.
