Immune Boosting Juice

With the cold damp weather, it’s good to give your immune system a bit of a lift.  We love this juice combo for an energy boost!

Here’s just a few of the health benefits of the ingredients:

Ginger – great anticancer and inflammation reducing properties.  Can counteract nausea and motion sickness. Make into a hot tea with a pinch of cinnamon to relieve chills and congestion from colds and flu.

Carrot – packed with Vitamin C which acts as a protector of the nervous and immune systems. It helps to relieve stress and calms you down. Rich in Vitamin C in combination with B vitamins reduces the level of harmful cholesterol, helping to protect your cardiovascular system. Fresh carrot juice increases appetite and improves digestion.

Cinnamon – relieves bloating and has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.

Garlic – like onions, garlic is rich in sulfur compounds, which block enzymes that allow organisms to invade healthy tissue.  It also has benefits to stop you getting reoccurring colds.

Ingredients
One serving
4 carrots
1 apple
2 stalks of celery
Handful of parsley
1cm of ginger

Optional boost: 2 cloves of garlic

Pop the whole lot into your juicer and bingo! A glass packed full of goodness and health.
