Vitamin Fest

Posted on: June 19, 2012

Serves 2 to 3   

2 beetroots

1 grapefruit

2 oranges

2 celery sticks

Juice of ½ lime

Inch ginger

Put everything in a juicer or smoothie maker and blend together. To make more, just add a lot more of the ingredients. If it’s a bit sweet for your taste, dilute with water. Enjoy!

Now here’s the important bit!

Grapefruit: is full of limonoids, vitamin C and many of the detoxing benefits of lemons and limes. Grapefruits reduce bad cholesterol, keeping arteries clean and lower insulin in the body which helps prevent weight gain.

Oranges: are high in vitamin A, B6, C, beta-carotene and folic acid. They also contain calcium, phosphorus and potassium. They aid in the destruction of free radicals that are the cause of many ailments, and flush toxins from the body.

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. The important minerals in celery juice balance the body’s blood pH, neutralizing acidity and acts as a good post-workout tonic as it replaces the body with its rich minerals. Celery promotes healthy and normal kidney function by aiding elimination of toxins from the body.

Lime: All citrus fruits are packed with vitamin C making them a super immune booster. Limes are particularly astringent and refreshing. Even though they are acidic initially they have an alkalizing effect once entering the body. This alkalizing effect is thought by many health practitioners to heal cells and prevent disease.

Ginger: is high in antioxidants, contains vitamin C and also has anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger contains ginerol, a compound that is thought to relax blood vessels, stimulate blood flow and relieve pain.

Peace and fabulous health!
