Immune Boosting Juice




By Jordan Miller;

We all know how debilitating a cold or flu can be, so Kyla and I have shared a recipe (courtesy of Nomi Shannon) to help boost your immune system into better health. This juice is loaded with many nutrients. If you feel like you're coming down with something, we suggest that you prepare one of these drinks to get you back on track. This drink is highly detoxifying and cleansing. Make sure to chew your juice to get your digestion activated, otherwise you may experience cramps if you drink it too fast. Most importantly, have fun with it!

*Ensure that you wash ingredients thoroughly. You can use a few drops of grapefruit essential oil in a sink of warm water to ensure all bacteria and microbes have been cleansed. Let the celery, carrots, apple, lemon and beets sit in the warm water for 5 -10 minutes, then wash thoroughly.

  1. I think the energy boosting juice listed above has too much sugar (apples, carrots, and beets!). You should try more greens instead....sugar is sugar and is not good for anyone!

  2. Thanks for your comment Veronica. We agree, sugar is certainly something we should not be consuming, but a little sugar from whole food doesn't hurt. In fact, there are some cultures, predominately in the Southern hemisphere whom eat fruit as there main staple. There bodies are biochemically structured for this type of diet. You see, everyone's body has specific biochemical needs, some people function well on fruit and some others not so much. If we consume food in its whole unadulterated form, we should have no problems. There are plenty of benefits to apples, carrots, and beets in themselves that outweigh the apparent negatives. If unsure, we ask that everyone use their instinct to determine what is right for them, as everyone is different. ~ with love, Jordan & Kyla
