To make a 16oz glass of this Creamsicle anti-inflammatory juice you will need:
Apples – 2
Pears – 1
Celery Stalks – 2
Orange – 1
Sweet Potato – 1/2
Slice the pear and core and slice the apple. Peel the orange and make sure to rinse all ingredients in cold water. Process the fruit in a juicer. Pour the juice in a large glass, stir and serve.
*** I don’t really like the taste of Sweet Potato so I only juice about half of the potato and wrap the other half up and store it in the refrigerator for the next juice. I don’t get that overwhelming Sweet Potato flavor when I only juice half of the potato, but I am still getting the benefits. If you like the taste of Sweet Potato then you can juice the whole potato.
Here is a list of benefits that this juice provides:
Cancer Prevention: The high copper and vitamin C content in pears are good anti-oxidants that can protect cells from damages by free radicals.
Liminoid is a compound found in oranges that has been found to help fight cancers of the mouth, skin, lung, breast, stomach and colon. The high vitamin C content also acts as a good anti-oxidant that protects cells from damages by free radicals.
Reduce Inflammation: Pear juice has an anti-inflammatory effect and helps relieve sufferers of much pain in various inflammatory conditions.
Osteoporosis Prevention: Pears have a high level of Boron. Boron can help the body to retain calcium, which can help prevent or retard osteoporosis.
Energy: Pears have a high amount of fructose and glucose, which helps you get a quick and natural boost of energy.
Lower Blood Pressure: Celery calms the nerve because of the high calcium content & helps in controlling high blood pressure. Raw celery should be eaten to reduce high blood pressure.
Boost your Immune System: The anti-oxidant nutrients in pears are a great way to boost your immune system.
Oranges, being high in vitamin C can help stimulate white cells to fight infection, naturally building a good immune system.
And, as always, feel free to experiment with the ingredients and the amounts that you use for that perfect tasting juice.
