Cucumber: is a very good source of vitamins A and C, and folic acid. The skin is rich in fibre and a variety of minerals including magnesium and potassium. Cucumber is a top choice as a diuretic. It can help control constipation, stomach disorders and acne. The high water content, combined with its ability to balance acid, helps reduce disorders and ailments that may be a cause of over production of various acidic compounds.
Celery: is high in vitamin A, B1, B2, B6 and C, and ample supply of potassium, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, iron and essential amino acids. Celery helps flush the body of excessive carbon dioxide and reduces acidity.
Parsley: is one herb that is usually just used for garnishing food. It is rich in carotenoids, chlorophyll, calcium, Vitamins A, B, C and iron. Parsley is known for its blood-cleansing and healing properties. It is a strong diuretic, anti-inflammatory and a powerful antioxidant. Parsley neutralizes toxins in your liver, inhibits abnormal cell growth (preventing tumours and cancers), and boosts the immune system.
There are two types of parsley – curly or flat Italian parsley which have the same healing properties. The Italian variety tends to have more flavour and best used in cooking with other strong flavours. Curly parsley can be more bitter. I tend to use the flat leaf parsley.
Beetroot are a very good source of calcium, iron, Vitamins A and C and are an excellent source of folic acid. They are a very good for cleaning the bloodstream and cleansing the liver and kidneys. Also nature’s blood builder and strengthens the immune system.
Apple juice helps soothe the intestines and reduce constipation. It helps clean out harmful bacteria and parasites in the digestive tract. Apples contain vitamins A, B1, B2 and C, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and iron. The pectin in apples forms a gel in the intestine that eliminates toxins.
