Immunity Juice Ingredients
All of the ingredients I've included in this golden glow juice are there because they contain nutrients that specifically promote good immunity. Here is a list of the ingredients in this refreshing, immune boost juice recipe and why:
- Oranges - oranges are very high in Vitamin C, which is one of THE most important nutrients to support our immune system.
- Carrots - carrots contain Vitamin A and its precursor Beta Carotene. Vitamin A helps to promote a healthy mucous membrane. A healthy mucous membrane can more adequately protect against bacterial and viral infections.
- Pineapple contains a phytochemical called Bromelain. Bromelain works as a digestive enzyme and is highly anti-inflammatory. Because of these actions, Bromelian breaks up mucous and stimulates immune compounds.
- Turmeric contains Curcuminoids. Curcuminoids are highly antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, reducing free radical damage and promoting immunity.
- Ginger contains Gingerols, which are also anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds.
- Manuka honey is antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, helping to fight off bacterial & viral infections.
Selecting the freshest possible ingredients is important for getting the best nutritional value out of our food. Nutrients in fruits and vegetables tend to decrease with age, particularly volatile nutrients like Vitamin C. Fresh is best!
If it is available to you, opt for organic produce to reduce exposure to pesticides. Pesticides add toxic load to the body, which is no help to the immune system. If organic isn't an option for you, that is totally ok! Just be sure to wash your fruit and veg thoroughly before using.
Why Cold Pressed Juice?
Using a slow, cold pressed juicer is best to retain as much nutritional value as possible. Heat is Vitamin C's worst friend. Therefore using a cold pressed juicer is definitely the best way to preserve as much vitamin C as we can.
Don't have access to a cold pressed juicer? You could also blend in a high powered blender and strain through a nut milk bag or cheese cloth. Or don't strain and enjoy the benefits of this immune boost juice with extra fibre!
