It’s become a real trend, and all of the benefits of juicing are genuine. I mean, it’s basically just liquefied fruit and vegetable, so you know it’ll be healthy for you. You’ve probably heard already about the detoxing juices people make, or cleansing juices… I’m here today to show you there are many more benefits to be had from these springs of health other than just cleansing and detoxing.
Juicing can also be used for supplementing your diet on a daily basis with great results. I’m not only talking about getting plenty of important nutrients, but also about saving a ton of cash in the process. Pre-bottled products that’ll make up for all the nutrients you fail to take through food during the day cost an arm and a leg. You can see how buying them daily can put a pretty nice dent into your family budget. Juicing is cheap and effective, as all actions/products should be in my opinion. You’ll be getting the same amounts of vitamins and minerals, you’ll be paying less, and you’ll know exactly what’s in your drink. What’s not to love?
The first thing you’ll need to know here is the fact that juicing can be used to affect various parts of your body, or aimed against certain specific conditions. For example, you can start making juices that will amp up your immunity system, or ones that will have beneficial effect against Alzheimer’s. The possibilities are endless, as are your juicing components, and the only thing you’ll need to do is find the right recipe for you and throw it all in your juicer.
The first juice we’ll be making today is aimed at giving you great immunity
There are some known pointers if you want to make a good and effective immuno-juice. You’ll need to make sure that you have all of these ingredients in order for it to reach its full potential.
I’m talking about vitamins C and E and, of course beta-carotene. These are the three things you want your immunity-boosting juice to have. You can increase the amount of beta-carotene by adding apricot, mango, or both. That will also have a pleasant side-effect of making your juice sweeter, so if you have a bit of a sweet tooth (in a healthy way, of course) this is the combo with your name on it.
Let’s talk about a lit of ingredients you want in order to make the best the plant world has to offer.
This is your new all-time favorite juice for immunity:
- 3 larger carrots
- 1 golden beetroot
- A half of a cucumber
- 4 stalks of celery
- 1 medium size pear
- Half thumb of giner
This is one pretty light juice that’ll taste great and satisfy you immune system with the much needed backup.
We’ll continue by taking a look at cognition-enhancing juices
Ok, what are we exactly looking for here? We want a list of foods that’ll boost our cognition levels. Great! How do we do that? Well, cognitive function increases as our brain gets more blood, thus we draw a simple conclusion that increasing the blood flow also increases the functionality of our brain.
Now that we know what’s behind our intention here, we can determine what kind of foods we want in our juice. The ones rich in antioxidants are just what the doctor ordered for the purpose from the title. It affects you blood flow, thus affecting the ability of your brain to… Aaa, you already know all this.
One of the best foods to fit this bill is beets, of course.
So, here’s our final recipe:
- 1 whole sweet potato
- 1 beetroot
- 3 medium-size carrots
