Basil Beet Juice With A Ginger Kick


This is one of the nicest juices on my detox program — hope you agree.

Beet Juice with a Ginger Kick (serves 1)

Ingredients

¼ medium pineapple (with or without the skin, depending on your juicer)

2 medium carrots

1 small bulb raw beetroot

1—2 cm chunk root ginger

4 sprigs fresh basil

1 small handful ice cubes

no brown sugar (sorry, just a little ref to a Stones track)

Directions

Juice all the ingredients, but make sure you sandwich the basil and ginger in between other ingredients to ensure maximum juice extraction.

Why Say Hello and Not Goodbye to This Ruby Tuesday?

Beetroot is currently one of the most talked-about vegetables in terms of its nutritional benefits and there have been several studies conducted globally about the effects of drinking beetroot juice. The conclusion of all these studies is that the high level of nitrates found in beetroot keep the blood vessels dilated, meaning that high blood pressure is reduced and stamina in both the elderly and also athletes is improved due to the increased oxygen uptake capability. This juice is also loaded with vitamins B and C and beta-carotene, as well as calcium, magnesium, iron, sodium, potassium and magnesium.
