This juice recipe is designed to help you build your iron levels.
Wait until you see the amazing deep red colour of this juice recipe. There is an abundance of living green chlorophyll combined with a rich maroon colour from the beetroot that makes this juice look amazing.
Increasing your intake of raw foods rich in iron is the best way I know to naturally increase your iron levels. Most people don’t sit down to eat a whole bunch of raw spinach or a whole bunch of raw parsley. You can however easily consume it all, in one, easy to digest, cold-pressed juice.
This juice recipe has over 125% of the recommended daily intake (RDI) of iron and 175% RDI of vitamin C which helps improve the absorption of iron.

EQUIPMENT

    iron builder preparation
  • Start with the cap close on the juicer.
  • Grab a handful of spinach and drop it into the chute. Then grab a handful of parsley and drop it into the chute. Continue alternating the greens until they have all been juiced.
  • Next, add the cucumber pieces one at a time.
  • Open the cap on the juicer to release the green juice.
  • Next, add the beetroot slices, I usually add about 1/4 of the beetroot at a time.
  • Finish with the apples adding one at a time and letting the juicer press through before adding the next one.

Tip:

  • always juice herbs and leafy greens first in a cold press juicer as the fruits and veggies that follow will help push more leaves through the juicer and you will get more green nutrition and flavour.

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.
