Print Recipe
The liquid nutrition in this juice recipe may help to lower your cholesterol numbers and the best thing of all... it tastes delicious.
Strawberries contain ellagic acid for cardiovascular health and can help prevent heart disease, stroke, and lower cholesterol.
Pears and oranges both have lots of soluble fibre which can assist in reducing blood cholesterol levels.
Galacturonic acid (found only in grapefruit) can break up and dislodge fatty plaque build-up in the arteries and remove it completely from the body.
As healthy as grapefruits may be, caution should be used if you are taking certain prescription drugs. If you are on any medication, make sure to consult with your physician before consuming this juice recipe.
