Variety of Juices that brings good health


What most of us would like to do is immerse our bodies into the cold waters of the pool, or stay inside an air-conditioned mall. While in our homes, we can refresh and cool ourselves with health-giving juices. You can try mixing any one the following combination:

Cleansing Juice – With 250 ml water, mix (blend) 1 whole small apple, ½ small carrot and ¼ tsp fresh ginger. Ginger is not only good in giving flavor to our stir-fried dishes; in the ancient times, it is a well- known substance that eliminates intestinal gas and helps relax and soothe the intestinal tract. Beauticians usually prescribe this juice because of some perceived effects on the skin.

Chole-Clogger – This juice can be made from a combination of celery, apple and cucumber. These three ingredients give the body very strong antioxidants that can help fight cancer and help in significantly reducing blood cholesterol levels. Simply combine 250 ml of water with ¼ cup celery, ½ cup cucumber and 1 small apple.

Breath Freshener – Gone are the days when we have no choice but to gargle those alcoholic mouthwash, just so we can have fresh breath. There are now various oil-based mouthwash available in the market. Other than these, we can try this juice to help us have a good smelling breath. Mix in the blender 250 ml water, 1 small green apple, ¼ cup carrots and 1 small tomato. You might be wondering what it is in this juice that will help give you fresh breath. It’s simply the apple and tomato combination.

Cooler Juice – This unique combination of apple and bitter gourd milk can instantly cool down your internal body heat and helps you become more comfortable. In a blender, mix ¼ cup bitter gourd, ½ cup milk and 2 small apples.

Skin Glow Juice – Oftentimes, we hear people placing pieces of cucumbers around their eyes to help them get rid of their eye bugs. There could be some truth to that, so why not try cucumber for your skin? Blend together 1 cup water, 1 whole orange (without seeds), ½ cup diced cucumber. When this two combines, it can help improve your skin texture and better moisture content for your skin. Others even consider it as a body heat-reducing drink.

Detox Juice - When one is trying to remove toxins from his body, this juice can be good especially to the kidney and bladder. 1 small apple, ¼ cup pineapple tidbits and ½ cup diced watermelon all together mixed with 1 cup water may help in dispelling excess salts from your body.

It is truly amazing that the Creator has given us almost everything we need in nature. So, do we really need to use those synthetic chemicals in addressing our body needs? With these healthy juices, you can get not only one but many more benefits for y our body.
