Juicing Adventures: Happy juice

Posted by on April 3, 2014 at 8:56 am.

Earlier this morning, I prepared the juice listed below using my Breville juicer. Since I was in a rush, I didn’t have time to juice any of the dark leafy greens in my Green Stary juicer, I opted for the easier route and juiced fruit using my newest juicing machine; Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite – Stainless Steel.

No surprise that I could not come up with a name for this juice. I call it by whatever I’ve added to it, but I guess that’s not as fun for some.) The nutrients provided by the variety of fruits/herbs I use is a great way to kick start your morning and give you a blast of energy at the same time. It’s one of my feel good drinks and makes my bright days a bit more sparkling, so I’ll call it my Happy juice! Enjoy!

Health Benefits of my juice blend

I chose this produce combo for the amazing benefits. I’m still on my lenten pledge of only consuming fresh juices and raw foods during the entire lenten season. While there are numerous benefits to consuming the above juice. I’m only focusing on one today and that is malic acid.

Malic acid is great for…
  • Digestion
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Distributing energy throughout the cells
  • Metablism
  • Effective fighter against toxic metals that can be found in the body.

Just so you know, malic acid is naturally present in our bodies. What’s incredible is the effect that malic acid has a variety of toxic metals. It has a binding effect on them, so harmful metals like aluminum and stromnium (both dangerous for the brain and liver) are moved out of the body thanks to malic acid. Apples are one of the best sources of malic acid. Malic acid is  mainly found in tart/unripe fruit.
