The liquid nutrition in this juice recipe is designed to support good joint health.
The sulfur in broccoli is wonderful for alleviating joint pain, degeneration, discomfort, and for repairing tendons and connective tissue around the joints.
Both cucumber and cos lettuce are high is silica which helps to repair and renew joints. Silica is a trace mineral that is not common in many foods.
Collagen formation around an area of an injury may also be increased with the help of silica in your diet.
Let’s drink to healthy joints!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 head broccoli
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1/2 head cos lettuce
  • 1 lime

Preparation

joint support juice foods
Broccoli
  • Cut off the stem
  • Cut the stem into quarters lengthwise
  • Break the florets up into small chunks to fit into the wide chute
Cucumber
  • Cut into chunks to fit down the chute
  • Juice with skin on
Cos Lettuce (Romaine)
  • Cut whole lettuce heads into half and then into quarters and then into eighths
  • Juice in small pieces
Lime
  • Thinly slice off the outer skin
  • Juice whole

EQUIPMENT

Instructions
 

  • Prepare all ingredients ready for juicing
  • When juicing with any leafy greens add them to the juicer chute first before adding other ingredients as they are the lightest and the other ingredients will help push them through the juicer.
  • After adding the lettuce in handfuls at a time you can start adding the broccoli florets. I add a couple at a time and let the juicer press them through before adding more.
  • Now you can add the broccoli stems one piece at a time.
  • Next, add the cucumber pieces. Don’t overload the juicer by adding too many too quickly.
  • Finish with the whole lime.

Tip:

  • you can substitute the cos lettuce for butter lettuce or iceberg lettuce if you want a slightly sweeter and milder flavour. However, cos lettuce has more nutrition benefits.

Liquid Nutrition

There is more to every fruit, vegetable and leafy green than taste and flavour. Each one has a unique signature or a "sign from nature" indicating what part of the human body its nutrition targets. The light or the colour of fruits and vegetables can help us heal emotionally (think colour therapy) and the lessons the fruits, vegetables and leafy greens learn when growing get passed onto us, to help us, when we consume them.
