Juices not only taste delicious, but they also help you to lose or maintain your weight. There are certain healing juices, and others boost your immune system so that you don’t become the victim of recurring conditions, like the flu, coughs, colds, or even other, more chronic conditions, like cholesterol and diabetes.
Juices provide different vitamins, like B6, C, A, Beta carotenes, magnesium, and others, directly influencing bodily health and contributing to cellular regeneration.
Don’t miss out on this healthy juice selection that we’ve provided below. They will make you healthier, and give you more energy and life.
Juices recipes for Immune System
Pro-defense Juice 1
3 carrots, diced
1 celery stalk, diced
1 apple, diced
1/2 cucumber, cubed
1/2 beet, cubed
1/2 handful wheat sprigs
1/2 parsley bunch
Place half of the carrot and half of the apple in a blender. Then add the wheat sprigs and parsley, while adding the beet and cucumber. Lastly, add the rest of the carrots and apple.

1 apple, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
A few sprigs of parsley
2 cloves garlic

Pro-defense Juice 4
1 c. cabbage
1 c. spinach
1/4 lemon, peeled
1 c. green grapes
Just like all the previous juices, blend all ingredients together, then serve the juice.
You can add some variety
You can also add, or change out, certain vegetables with other types of tropical flavors, like strawberries, black currants, cantaloupe and citrus fruits. These are recommendable for increasing the body’s natural defenses from virus attacks. They also slow cellular aging.
Remember that once prepared, juices must be consumed immediately. Stored juices, even if they were kept in the refrigerator, quickly lose their dietary value.
Likewise, we recommend that you drink them an hour before breakfast, or two to three hours after lunch. It is important that you do not add any extra sugar, their natural sweetness is healthier.
Before preparing your juice, you should follow a few important steps:
– Wash your fruits and vegetables very well, with plenty of water and if possible, a brush.
– Remove seeds and pits, or any hard parts in the fruit.
– Peel citrus fruits
– Cut your fruits and vegetables into small pieces so they are easier to blend, juice, or process.
