Mighty mint delivers potassium, calcium, iron, manganese and magnesium, beta- carotene, and vitamins A, C, E and K. The leaves also contain B-complex, including folates, riboflavin and pyridoxine (B6). Mint is one of the oldest remedies in use for indigestion and flatulence, and can help bring down cholesterol and high blood pressure. It’s a natural topical anesthetic for the mouth. Through the action of menthol on cold receptors in our skin and mucous membranes, the herb delivers a cool sensation when eaten, inhaled or applied.
Compounds in peppermint, specifically, relax the intestinal wall and sphincter muscles, and work as an anti- spasmodic agent in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other colic pain disorders. With these additional properties, peppermint is a great cleanse go- to.
Though a cooling herb, mint brings a bright, warm accent to cold weather juices, and offers a clean taste. That flavor pairs especially well with mild leafy greens, apple, melon, lemon, and pineapple. Juice the entire stalk, stem and leaves.
The health benefits of apple juice
Apple juice has extraordinary nutrition and cleansing powers. Tasty, able to break down toxins, lower cholesterol, and enhance digestion, this fruit is a popular, versatile, and cost-effective go-to for juices. With phytonutrients, powerful antioxidants like quercetin, vitamin A (in the peel), vitamin C, and significant potassium, apple is a prime detox food that’s available year round.
The high pectin content in this fabulous fruit makes it a great bowel regulator, able to slow the colon down or speed it up, as the body needs for detox. Apple is a cooling food, and so I include it in juices to balance the bitterness of leafy greens and other vegetables.
The sweet tang of apple blends with almost all fruits and vegetables; our preferred variety is Granny Smith, which has a tarter flavor and lower sugar content than common reds like Fuji, Delicious, and Honeycrisp.
That said, this fruit is versatile, and our recipes will work with any apple you have on hand. I recommend coring apples before juicing, as the jury is still out as to whether the bit of cyanide occurring naturally in the seeds is detrimental to health.
I’ll Definitely try all these healthy juice recipes which are look good pretty for health
