Here are some great fruit juice recipes that you can make at home. Included are some of the wonderful health benefits you can expect from each fruit juice recipe.
Fruit Juice Recipe #1 – Anti-Cancer Berries
2 cups of blueberries
2 cups of strawberries
1 cup of raspberries
Blueberries, strawberries and raspberries all contain a powerful anti-cancer antioxidant called ellagic acid. Strawberries, which are the best source of ellagic acid, were found by a study to be very effective at reducing cancer related deaths. In this study, which was conducted with over 1,000 elderly people in the United States, it was found that those who ate strawberries everyday were 66% less likely to die from any kind of cancer than those who ate strawberries less than once a week!
Fruit Juice Recipe #2 – Purple Protector
2 cups of blackberries
This juice is a great immune system booster. Both blackberries and kiwis are exceptionally good sources of the three vitamins that are required for a healthy immune system – vitamins A, C and E. Together, these three vitamins supply more than 2/3 of the total power of our immune system to fight off viruses, bacteria and other pathogens. Additionally, vitamins A, C and E are very important for skin health too! Vitamin A is needed to create healthy epithelial skin cells while vitamin C is needed to create collagen – the all important substance for healthy, elastic skin. A high vitamin E intake reduces the risk of skin cancer developing because it helps to repair skin cells damaged by sun exposure.
Fruit Juice Recipe #3 – Apple Juice!
4 apples (red or green, your call!)
If you are using organic apple for your fruit juice recipes, then it is a really good idea to juice the apples with their skins on. The skins are an excellent source of antioxidants that we don’t want to miss out on. In fact there are more antioxidants in the skins than there are in the actual pulp of an apple. If the apples are not organic, then it is better to peel them to cut down on the amount of pesticides in the juice.
Several research studies have found that apple juice can help combat heart disease by helping to lower blood pressure levels in those with high blood pressure. It was also found that apples juiced with their skins on lowered blood pressure levels more than apples juiced without their skins. Researchers believe that the many antioxidants in apples and their skins protect our arteries from oxidative damage that can harden and restrict them and even reverse present damage. This will increase the amount arteries can dilate and therefore let more blood through and reduce blood pressure! For more recipes visit juices recipes.
