Health Juice! PinCelCarGin. (And why it's healthy)


Today's Health Juice is a new favorite blend of mine. Get my super juice ingredients and find out why I call it "Health Juice" - Try this vibrant blend...

My Health Juice! (and why it's healthy)...

Pineapple. First I add in fresh-chopped, bromelain-rich pineapple. Pineapple is the only known source of bromelain - you can get bromelain in both fresh or frozen pineapple. But for juicing sake - lets stick with fresh-cut pineapple. Pineapple is also an excellent source of vitamin C and Manganese.



"Pineapple, whether fresh or frozen, is the only known source of bromelain - a protein-digesting enzyme that research shows to have anti-inflammatory properties that may alleviate symptoms of osteoarthritis, sinusitis and asthma; help heal injuries and inhibit the growth of malignant lung and breast-cancer cells." -Dole Nutrition Handbook, pg 94.

Carrots! Then I add a few bright orange organic carrots. Carrots are rich in vitamin A. But here's an interesting fact...

"Though raw carrots make a healthy and tasty snack, cooked carrots provide greater amounts of Vitamin A because the cooking process breaks down cell walls, enhancing nutrient ability." -Dole Nutrition Handbook, pg 108.

Celery! Then some crisp stalks of celery. Celery is not as nutrition-void as you may think!..

"Celery contains... [immunity-boosting] quercetin, apigenin and luteolin, as well as a healthy supply of Vitamin C, folate and potassium. Plus two stalks can fulfil 40% RDA of Vitamin K." -Dole Nutrition Handbook, pg 81.

Ginger! My fave juicing add-in: ginger. I added in stimulating, spicy ginger to make my health juice sing!
