Here’s how it helps:
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.
Ginger: is high in antioxidants and also has anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger contains ginerol, a compound that is thought to relax blood vessels, stimulate blood flow and relieve pain.
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.
Broccoli is a very powerful antioxidant which contains vitamins B and C, folic acid, beta-carotene, phosphorus, fibre, calcium, potassium and iodine. It’s very good for blood pressure and liver problems. Also helps to relieve constipation.
