As we get closer to the holidays and all the indulgence most people engage in, there’s never a better time to load up on fresh vegetables and particularly green vegetables. My favorite and most easily digestible way to have them is in a tall glass (or 3) of green juice.
With the lovely warm weather in the southern hemisphere right now, I’ve been enjoying plenty of fresh fruit like apple, pear or orange in my green juice most days along with lots of fresh mint and fresh turmeric root for it’s wonderful anti-inflammatory effects and smooth flavor. Adding roots to your juice like turmeric, ginger and beet are fantastic for grounding you and turmeric is well known for helping ward off colds and flus, helping with indigestion, lowering blood sugar levels, reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke, and helping to prevent cancer. I’d say that’s worth adding to your regular diet then!
And then comes the benefits of the Barleygrass Juice Extract…it naturally improves energy and digestion, strengthens the immune system and improves health of skin, hair and nails. It helps to cleanse and balance the body, while providing essential minerals, vitamins and amino acids that build your immunity and health. It has been credited as helpful for healing arthritis, migraine headaches, asthma, fatigue, gastrointestinal and skin issues, cancer, diabetes and more. A pretty amazing juice tonic all round!
I made this delicious combination for Philip and I every day for a week and will be picking up some more turmeric to continue this lovely habit soon.
