Makes 2 Servings

Feed through juicer in this order, stir and serve

  • 3 medium organic beets, peeled 
  • 6 stalks of organic celery with leaves 
  • 5 organic carrots 
  • 1, 1 in. thumb of organic ginger
  • 1 or 2 large organic red apples

Beets are naturally high in vitamin C, which helps to boost the immune system. The pigments that give beets their dark red color are strong phytonutrients that may help keep the body free of cancer. Naturally occurring nitrates in beets convert into nitric oxide within the body, causing the blood vessels to relax and dilate, which helps to lower blood pressure and to improve overall circulation. Also, it's no surprise, beets are a powerful detoxifier of the blood and liver. 

Celery is full of vitamin K, an essential nutrient required for healthy blood clotting.  It also contains other trace nutrients such as potassium and magnesium.

Carrots are high in beta-carotene. The body naturally converts beta-carotene into vitamin A, which is critical to superior eye and skin health. Vitamin A is also a powerful antioxidant that shows promise in many studies as a preventative to many types of cancer, such as lung and colon cancer. 

Ginger is a warming and detoxifying herb that aids in digestion and has strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds.  Ginger also helps ease nausea, indigestion, and other digestive disorders. 

Apples are high in vitamin C and phytonutrients that help protect healthy cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and boost the immune system to keep you healthy.  You know the cliche: "an apple a day keeps the doctor away."  Might as well take two!

*This recipe is insanely healthy, raw, and incredibly nourishing, but it is not intended to treat or cure any disease. Pigments from the beets may cause red tinted or dark stools, and urine, this is of course harmless.
