Ginger Power Detox Juice

I’ve noticed that whenever I drink fresh, organic vegetable juice my energy levels go through the ceiling. I feel energised and vibrant; so much so, that I’ve incorporated vegetable juicing into my weekly rhythm as a general health and wellness tonic. Juicing fresh vegetables, herbs and spices like ginger, can be an excellent way to reset your system and cleanse. It’s perfect to help yourself recover from illness and disease. Juicing gives the body the opportunity to rest and rejuvenate, whilst recharging the system with potent vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients.

Ginger in your juice acts as a powerful detoxification aid

Add in a warming spice like ginger, and it not only inspires a healthy way of living, but it actively encourages the detoxification of things that ought not be in your body. Ginger is a powerful antioxidant. But what is an antioxidant? An antioxidant is a molecule that is able to inhibit the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation often produces free radicals. Free radicals instigate a chain reaction that can damage cells. Antioxidants intervene by eliminating these free radicals and preventing damage. Ginger is loaded with antioxidants to help you stay healthy. It also has properties that encourage gentle sweating, to help you eliminate toxins. It’s also known to support good circulation and act as an anti-inflammatory. Check out my article on the health benefits of ginger for more information here: Health Benefits of Ginger

There are many different vegetable juices that you can make. Always choose organic. If you can’t get organic then peel off the skins (which is where most of the chemicals will be – bit of a pity though, because that’s where most of the nutrients often are). This recipe is a highly nutritious blend of different vegetables. Let’s look at what’s inside…

Ginger Power Detox Juice_recipeBeetroot has a catalogue of health benefits. It is high in glutathione, polyphenols and betalains, all of which have excellent antioxidant properties. Antioxidants play a key role in prevention of most chronic diseases, due to their ability to counteract the effects of free radical damage on human tissue. Beetroot is also known to be an excellent liver detoxification aid and to have anti-cancer properties.  Read more about the health benefits here: Beetroot Health Benefits

Celery is full of antioxidant compounds like flavonols, flavones, phenolic acids and furanocoumarins, which have been shown to decrease the risk of oxidative damage to  fats and lessen oxidative damage to blood vessel walls – preventing free radical damage. Its natural diuretic and anti-inflammatory benefits make it a bit of an all-round disease prevention superstar.

Carrots are especially high in antioxidants and vitamin A (vitamin A is great for healthy vision, skin and immune support).

Apples not only give the juice a wonderful gentle balance of sweetness, they are loaded with antioxidants too. They are supportive of health and wellness on multiple-levels. Be careful if your apples come from the USA though – even organic store bought apples from the USA are known to have an additional preservative-type waxy coating on them.

      Coincidence! I’ve been making a juice pretty much the same as this one. I also find my energy levels increase after one of these. My remedy for a tiring and stressful day at work is to go for a run then have a juice (or have the juice first; depends…) and no matter how awful I’ve been feeling that never fails to pick me up.

        Delighted to hear that you’ve found the benefits of similar juices too. I arrived in Hawaii last night, so looking forward to embracing some local fresh foods here too!

      I had just been thinking about juices with beetroot in them. I love beetroot because it gives me so much energy and I love the taste. Did you know, “Patients who drank beetroot juice were able to extend their exercise time and had reduced exercise diastolic and resting systolic blood pressures”? I just saw this on another website. Amazing huh? Thanks for the recipe and happy juicing!

      so happy to read you here… a quick question, i heard that beats for juice shouldn’t be drank immediately. after squeezing the beats, it should be at fridge for about 4 hours before adding to any other fresh veggies/fruits juice.
      what do you think?

      • Hi Noura,
        Never heard of that before, where did you hear it?
        I can say that I drink beet juice (with other veggies in it) about 3 times every week and have never had anything other than feeling awesome and vibrant.
