Red Cabbage Power!
Updated: Jan 31
Cabbage juice is a digestive-healing, powerhouse of a juice!
Juicing produce allows you to remove the fiber and retain the highly nutrient-dense liquid nutrition that remains
The nutrients become more bio-available (the rate and speed at which they may be absorbed by your body) to you
While fruit and vegetables may be combined into a juice, ensure the juice remains more alkaline than acidic, by using more volume of vegetable than that of fruit
Red Cabbage powerfully boosts the immune system, detoxifies the body, prevents diabetes and treats ulcers[i]
Carrots possess beta-carotene, helping to combat health-damaging, free radical activity (free radicals are uncharged atoms in the body that result from stressors, and can be highly reactive within the body)[ii]
Apples are cancer-fighting fruits and can help combat diarrhea and constipation (their fibre can either pull water out of your colon to keep things moving along when you’re backed up, or can absorb excess water from your stool to slow your bowels down)[iii]
