Juices contain relatively little dietary fiber, and although not usually recommended, this can sometimes be beneficial because it gives the digestive system a break, as it has to work much harder when dealing with fiber.
Juices provide easily absorbed vitamins and minerals without the need for extensive digestion. This is an excellent way to detoxify the body, and is particularly beneficial when you are feeling run down or ill, or just need an energizing boost.
This juice is packed with many beneficial nutrients and is a great energizer. Carrots provide Beta-carotene, and alfalfa sprouts are a highly concentrated source of nutrients, including saponins, which boost the immune system and protect against disease. Alfalfa combines well with carrot juice, which is necessary since alfalfa juice is very strong on its own. The ginger in this recipe is an excellent stimulant.
To prepare your sprouts for juicing simply rinse them, drain them and then wrap them up tightly in something like a lettuce leaf. Feed the stuffed lettuce leaf into the juicer. This should help the juicer extract the juice from the alfalfa sprouts more efficiently.
Broccoli is one of the best green vegetables that you can eat, and eating any fruit or vegetable raw ensures that none of the valuable nutrients are lost. Broccoli is a potent immune system booster and helps to protect against diseases like cancer and stomach ulcers. The carrot and apple naturally sweeten the juice, making it more palatable and enjoyable. This juice provides calcium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, sulfur and potassium.
This cool, refreshing green juice is perfect for any time of the day. Cucumber is a naturally juicy vegetable and when sprinkled with a little freshly ground salt, it becomes even juicier. This juice is rich in Vitamin C and caffeic acid, a compound that inhibits cancer. It also provides natural hydration and has cleansing properties.
Peel the cucumber, cut into thick slices and place in a colander. Add a twist or two of freshly ground sea salt, and leave for 5-10 minutes. Chop the apples and trim the celery. Pass all the ingredients through a juicer until a juice is formed.
Pour into glasses and dilute with water and/or ice if using.
