Fresh juicing has gained growing popularity in recent years with the rising awareness of health and wellbeing. Indeed, a fresh glass of juice is not only revitalising and refreshing, but it is also a great way to give a boost to your vitamin intake during a busy day.
What are some of the best vegetables or fruits to include in your juice? Let us take a look at several popular health boosters to add to your glass:
While ginger can taste strong as a stand-alone item, it is a great addition to give a refreshing kick and flavour to any juice blend. In addition, ginger is packed with antioxidants, with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
High in key vitamins A, C and K, kale is also rich in antioxidants including beta-carotene, helping to protect against heart disease and conditions, as well as lowering the bad LDL cholesterol while boosting the healthy level of HDL cholesterol. As a leafy green vegetable, it has a mild flavour that balances well with other fruits in juices.
Beetroot adds more than just a vibrant colour to your juice, it is also full of great nutrition including manganese, potassium and folate, adding a variety of health benefits. This vegetable with a delicious earthy flavour can also help lower blood pressure, improve brain health, as well as improve mental performance given its high level of nitrates.
The “x-ray vision” carrots as our parents like to call them are a perfect choice for juicing with their high amounts of carotenoids, which are linked to eye and heart health. Carrots form a fantastic and versatile base for juice blends with their sweet flavour and pair well with ginger, beetroot, and even citrus fruit juices.
A refreshing drink on its own, celery juice is also a popular and ideal choice for combining with other juices of fruits and vegetables. Celery contains health-protecting antioxidants such as ferulic acid, and kaempferol, as well as ferulic acid which helps reduce blood pressure, reduce cholesterol levels, and decrease inflammation.
