Jack Lalanne Power Juicer Recipes
By Darren Haynes
Here are some great juicer recipes that you can make with a Jack Lalanne power juicer machine. Included are the wonderful health benefits these juicer recipes can supply.
Power Juicer Recipe #1 - Bountiful Berries
- 2 cups of blackberries
- 1 cup of blueberries
- 1 cup of raspberries
Wash berries, juice, enjoy! Berries are very easy to juice. They require very little prep time because they need no chopping or topping, just wash and juice.
Berries are a great source of an antioxidant called anthocyanins that are great for heart health. These anthocyanins are also found in the skins of red grapes and are a key ingredient in the famous heart healthy properties of red wine. Anthocyanins help our hearts by their effect upon our major arteries. Anthocyanins, along with vitamin C, help to build strong and flexible artery walls. This helps to protect us from developing arteriosclerosis, a condition that is the number one cause of heart disease.
Berries, especially raspberries and strawberries, are a great source of an antioxidant called ellagic acid. This antioxidant is one of the most potent of anti-cancer substances. A study that analysed the diets of 1300 elderly people in Massachusetts found that strawberries offered powerful protection against cancer development. Researchers found that those elderly people who ate the most strawberries were 2/3 less likely to die of cancer than those who eat the least!
Power Juicer Recipe #2 - Lean Greens
- 4 carrots
- 2 stalks of celery
- handful of spinach
- handful of kale
Wash vegetables through and top the carrots before juicing. Try to use organic if you can this will eliminate pesticides from the juice. Pesticides contain toxic heavy metals like lead and arsenic and other chemicals that can be carcinogenic. If you use non-organic carrots then it is better to peel them because most of the pesticides retain in the skin.
Spinach and kale are great for eye health. These two leafy green vegetables are a great source of two antioxidants called lutein and zeaxanthin that concentrate in the lens of our eyes. They protect the eyes from harmful oxygen molecules (free radicals) that are delivered via UV light. This helps to protect the eyes from premature aging and diseases like cataracts, glaucoma and age related macular degeneration.
Spinach and kale are also a great source of vitamin C, better than oranges even. Vitamin C is a key nutrient for the proper functioning of the immune system, creates collagen to keep our skin healthy and reduces inflammation and pain in arthritis sufferers.
