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.
Pomegranate is a great blood builder, as it strengthens both red and white cell counts.
Pomegranate is affectionately known as “The Jewel of Winter Fruits” because of its precious jewel like seeds. It is the perfect addition to your winter juice menu. They are an excellent weight loss food and benefit the body by boosting the immune system and improving circulation.
Pomegranate juice significantly reduces ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) activity, helping lower blood pressure, preventing heart disease and reducing the risk of stroke.
Pomegranates may help to dissolve gallstones and kidney stones, nodules, calcifications, and small cysts such as ganglia cysts. They also have anti-tumor properties.
Pomegranates are also the perfect “brain food” as they help to increase cognitive function and memory recall. Pomegranates are also great for joints and may help to prevent cartilage deterioration making them essential for the prevention of osteoarthritis.
The most intriguing health benefit of fresh blueberries is that they may actually reverse the loss of short-term memory that happens as we age.
They also act as an unusual type of pro-biotic by blocking the attachment of bacteria that cause urinary tract infections. They contain chemicals that curb diarrhea and also have viral activity and are high in natural
Anthocyanin is the pigment that makes the blueberries blue and is thought to be responsible for the major health benefit of preventing cancer.
Blueberries are believed to have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all common fruits and vegetables.
Apples are the Queen of all fruits. the old saying “an apple a day…” is truly ancient wisdom as they protect and heal every human body system and cell.
Apples are a true healing food.
Apple juice provides living water to support the liver’s hydration capabilities, so it can store the water and then release it back into the bloodstream when the blood becomes dehydrated and isn’t flowing very well.
Apples are high in a soluble fibre (still in the juice) called pectin that forms a gel-like substance in the intestine. This gel can bind to cholesterol, removing it from the body, which may aid in reducing blood pressure levels.
Apples also starve viruses. When their pectin fibers enter the digestive system, they release phytochemicals that bind onto viruses, shrouding viral cells so that they can’t feed and proliferate.
They are also high in malic acid that binds with any heavy metals in the brain. The word ‘malic‘ comes from the Latin word ‘malum‘, meaning ‘apple’ which is why I recommend to people who have brain or neurological symptoms to consume more apples.
Ginger is one of the world’s oldest and most popular medicinal spices. It is known to greatly aid in digestion and assimilation and is widely regarded to help prevent colds, flu, motion sickness, and vertigo.
Ginger is like every’s favourite Auntie (anti). Anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-spasmodic, anti-nausea, anti-bacterial.
Ginger will support your overall immune system, so is great to use during the winter months, to help fight off colds. Gingerols in ginger cause a rapid and noticeable widening of the blood vessel walls and in turn helps to enhance circulation and also lower blood pressure.
Coconut Water is a highly nutritious, cleansing, and refreshing juice that is packed with vitamins and minerals. Coconut water is one of the highest sources of electrolytes known. It’s a natural isotonic beverage with the same level of electrolytic balance that we have in our blood.
Coconut water has the ability to hydrate the body on a deep, cellular level making it an essential beverage for athletes and those that live a busy, active life. It also has been shown to help balance pH levels, boost the immune system, and support kidneys in filtering toxins and reducing the risk of kidney stones.
