Rise and Shine

So this morning I made a delicious refreshing juice to kick start my day. It had the following ingredients:

  • 1 Lemon
  • Half a Cucumber
  • Celery Stick
  • Handful of Parsley
  • Cube of Ginger
  • 1 Apple

Benefits of each ingredient:

Lemons are an excellent cleanser for the liver.

Ginger is a natural antibiotic for the entire body and an immune system booster.

Apples are high in soluble fiber which soothes digestion. They are a great source of Vitamin C.

Parsley is an excellent cleanser of the liver, kidneys and bloodstream. It is packed full of iron and helps control high blood pressure.

Celery is a natural diuretic and lessens fluid retention and reduces acidity in the body. It also calms the nervous system.

Cucumbers have excellent diuretic properties and have a high content of beta-carotene. They are rich in silica which is beneficial to hair, nails and skin.
