Whats' in the Glass? Juice because it's good for you.

This morning I pulled out my juicer. My trusty juicer has helped me lose 60 pound in the past, as well as help put my Crohn's disease in remission. I am a firm believer that there is a natural cure in fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and plants, all you have to do is read and consume.

Both my daughter and myself are suffering from a little winter time sniffle and cough, so I decided to juice a vitamin C pack refreshment. Not only will this juice help boost our immune system, but, if consumed regularly it can help fight cancer, boost the metabolism, help those bowels get to moving, and help hair and skin look it's best.

This juice is also great for those NY2013 diet resolutions. A glass of freshly juice fruit and veggies will help those pound drop by boosting your metabolism, regulating bowel movements (the more that comes out is less that stays in), and it will also give you the energy you need to workout.

Here is what is in the glass;
Kale- This is a superfood, so you know it's packed with good stuff including vitamins A, C & K. There is also a high amount of iron, calcium and fiber in kale.

Celery- Full of vitamin A, C, B1, B2 and B6. There is also plenty of fiber for a smooth move. Celery is also know to reduce blood pressure and relieve inflammation.

Cucumber- Are good for skin hair and nails. They are full of water so its an excellent source of hydration. In addition there are vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B6 as well as a health dose of potassium.

Carrot- It's a well know fact that carrots are good for the vision, that is because it's full of vitamin a, which if consumed regularly may help reduce the risk of some cancers.

Apple- We all know the old saying about a apple a day, it's because apples are a great antioxidant, full of vitamins and are also good for the colon. A clean colon equals a clean body.

Orange- Interesting fact, a orange is actually a berry. Oranges are packed full of vitamin C and calcium. They are great for detoxing, the skin, the digestive system and more. Studies show that the right amount of vitamin C can help with stress and depression.

Pineapple- This too is high in vitamin C and is also know to sooth soar throats. In addition pineapples are an anti-inflammatory and are loaded with fiber.

Hungraciously Yours,
