Anti-Inflammatory Juices

Do you suffer from inflammation somewhere in your body? If you have any health condition you’re dealing with, there’s inflammation present. Here are some super juices to help you fight inflammation and heal more quickly.

  • Carrot juice Carrot juice provides anti-inflammatory benefits that were significant even when compared to anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, and Celebrex.
  • Parsley juice Parsley contains luteolin—a flavonoid that has been shown to combine with highly reactive oxygen-containing molecules (oxygen radicals) and to help prevent oxygen-based damage to cells. This means a reduction in inflammation.
  • Juice more of these foods as well:
    • Asparagus
    • Radish
    • Turnips
    • Ginger
    • Turmeric
    • Leafy greens such as kale, chard, spinach and watercress
    • Bok choy
    • Fennel
    • Celery (drink 8 to 16 ounces a day) It helps you sleep well, which is very important in your recovery.
    • Beets
    • Broccoli; juice the stems and steam the florets
    • Blueberries

Recipe of the Week

Anti-Inflammatory Cocktail

serves 2

This is what makes this recipe so healing:

  • Fennel: anti-inflammatory, anti-histamine, analgesic, and antioxidant
  • Apple: inhibits the development of allergies; rich in histamine-lowering quercetin
  • Cucumber: analgesic (painkiller); antioxidant that prevents the synthesis of the inflammatory compound prostaglandin
  • Broccoli: anti-carcinogenic, prevents gastric mucosal damage (suggesting potential histamine-lowering action)
  • Ginger: as effective as an H2 receptor antagonist prescription drug

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 large fennel with fonds
  • 1-inch-piece ginger root
  • 1 large broccoli stem
  • 3 leaves kale
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled if not organic

    Hi Cherie
    I haven’t written in a while. My Dr has sent me for blood tests, in particular CA125 as she is concerned about pain around my ovaries, and diverticulitis.
    Do you have any suggestions for me please to juice.
    Thank you kindly.

    • I would recommend that you do a 3-5 day veggie juice fast. Include plenty of dark leafy greens.
