3 Energizing Juices

Are you dragging a bit this holiday season? Fresh juice is like giving your cells a vitamin/mineral infusion. Plus, you’ll be feeding your cells biophotons. They are important for the mitochondria, those energy producers in our cells that make ATP our energy fuel.

Lots of people are getting colds and flu all around me.  How about you? I don’t usually catch the bug, but my body fights like a trooper to stave off those nasty critters. I get tired in the process. So here comes juice to the rescue!

If you’re extra busy right now with holiday shopping and parties, you can’t afford not to juice. You certainly can’t afford to get sick.I know I can’t afford that. In fact, when I’m done creating my newsletter, I’m going to make a glass of veggie juice.

Perk your cells up with these energizing juices.

Spinach – Spinach gets a gold star for energy due to its iron content. Iron transports oxygen and energizes our cells. If you get low in iron, you may be dragging. It also offers amino acids and tyrosine, a compound that has been known to improve alertness. Not a fan of greens? Juice it up with carrot, lemon, and ginger and you won’t even know it’s there.

Broccoli – Juice up the stems! It’s good economy and what else will you do with them? I have a few leftover from dinner last night when I lightly steamed the florets. I’m juicing the stems now. A study at John Hopkins University showed that broccoli consumption prevented the development of tumors by 60% and reduced the size of tumors that did develop by 75%. It is an excellent source of vitamins C and K and a good source of folate and vitamin A. And, it contains more polyphenols than most if not all vegetables and possesses anti-inflammatory properties to minimize arthritis, muscle soreness, muscle damage, and chronic pain.

Red cabbage – contains B vitamins and minerals including magnesium, which help boost energy levels.
