Go Green...... 7 day Green Juice Detox

Juicing really should be tailor-made by personal preference and specific needs. Not everyone enjoys the same flavours however, Vitality 4 Life have put together a selection of healthy green juice recipes to help you get started with juicing.

Your Cold Press Juicer will preserve all the living enzymes in your vegetables for the healthiest juice possible!

So why should you drink green juice? Many people dislike the pulp and fibre in their juice but without this in fruit juices you are basically drinking sugar even though it is natural sugar none the less it will add to your weight. We recommend that you only juice fruits as a treat as they are far more beneficial to eat whole. Your freshly squeezed juice will deliver a powerful array of vitamins, minerals and enzymes straight into your bloodstream. We suggest that you do not combine vegetables with fruits in a juice, as they require different enzymes for digestion. The good news is there is one exception to the rule: green apples. Green apples act as a neutraliser in juice and are low in acids unlike other fruits. This is a great substitute for those who want to add sweetness to green vegetable juices.

Green juice is a great way to fit in your recommended daily allowance, as not everyone wants to sit down for dinner and eat celery, broccoli, kale, wheatgrass or cucumber.

The technical part – Within greens chlorophyll is produced this helps to oxygenate your body meaning the body can remove stored toxins. This also helps to elevate your haemoglobin. The molecular structure of haemoglobin is similar to your red blood cell, and an increase in your red blood cells means a boost in energy and improved circulation. A green juice will cleanse your digestive system, lungs, liver and uterus a wonderful detox method. Green juice is not the nicest of tasting juices and certainly not every ones favourite but I hope I have convinced you that it is well worth giving it a go. Below are a range of recipes for green juices tried and tested.
