Allergy Ally Juice Recipe
The liquid nutrition in this juice recipe may help with Hayfever symptoms and seasonal allergies.
Broccoli contains nature’s natural antihistamine and is fantastic for warding off seasonal allergies, watery eyes, sinusitis, sinus infections, colds, flu, and bronchitis. When was the last time you ate a whole head of raw broccoli to get all of its raw nutrition?
Apples and Onions are in the juice recipe because they contain quercetin a bioflavonoid that controls the release of histamine. While pineapple will sweeten the juice it also has Bromelain, an anti-inflammatory enzyme to help with swelling.
The celery I added to help with dehydration, and add some extra Vit C, mineral salts and enzymes.
If you don’t have a cold press juicer try adding more of these ingredients into your weekly diet to help fight the effects of allergies, naturally.
- 1 broccoli head
- 1/2 red onion
- 2 celery stalks
- 1 apple, red
- 1/2 pineapple
Juicing Time: 5 mins
Juice Qty: 750 ml
- Cut off the stem
- Cut the stem into quarters lengthwise
- Break the florets up into small chunks to fit into the wide chute
- Chop into small thumb size pieces across the stalks (this shortens the long stringy cellulose fibre and stops it wrapping around the press)
- You can juice celery leaves, however it will add bitterness, so discard if you don’t like this
- Cut into half
- Peel the outer skin
- Slice off the outer skin
- Cut into long thin strips to fit down the chute
- Chop the core into small chunks
- Remove the stems and remove any stickers
- Juice apples whole with skin and seeds.
- Cut in half or quarters if too big to fit into the wide chute.
Start with the broccoli florets adding them slowly to the juicer. They will make a lot of noise as they get pressed, this is normal.
Next add the cut broccoli stems one piece at a time.
Now add the onion followed by the whole apple.
Juice the celery next in handfuls at a time letting each handful press through fully before adding more.
Finish by adding the pineapple pieces one at a time leaving the cut up core till last.
Tip: to reduce the astringent, tingly flavour of onions, cut them into chucks and soak them in cold water for 10 mins before juicing.
Broccoli is an amazing super-food full of vitamins A, C, D, K, calcium, potassium plus healthful flavonoids and even natural Co-enzyme Q10 all of which are in the juice. You don't have to chew on it like a rabbit to get all the benefits.
Broccoli like Cauliflower & Cabbage all have “sulforaphane” that enhances production of phase II enzymes which help remove carcinogens from cells.
Broccoli also contains Valine as an essential amino acid the promotes mental vigor, muscle coordination and calms the emotions.
The National Cancer Institute in America claims that broccoli may reduce the risk of breast cancer. This is due to the chemical indole, that has been found to increase the excretion of oestrogen linked to breast cancer.
Celery is technically a herb however we eat it and cook it like a vegetable.
Celery juice is very alkalising in the body, which is extremely important after a good workout to help flush lactic acid from the body.
If you want to learn about the amazing benefits of drinking celery juice I highly recommend the book titled Celery Juice by Anthony William.
Here is a summary of the main benefits mentioned in the book:
- fights autoimmune disease
- flushes out Strep bacteria
- assist with acid reflux
- kills Epstein-Barr & Shingles virus
- raise hydrochloric acid levels
- improve brain function
- restores adrenal fatigue
- flushes out liver toxins
- reduces liver heat
Apples are the "Queen of the Fruits". The old saying "an apple a day..." is truly ancient wisdom as they protect and heal every human body system and cell.
Apples are a true healing food.
Apple juice provides living water to support the liver’s hydration capabilities, so it can store the water and then release it back into the bloodstream when the blood becomes dehydrated and isn’t flowing very well.
Apples are high in a soluble fibre (still in the juice) called pectin that forms a gel-like substance in the intestine. This gel can bind to cholesterol, removing it from the body, which may aid in reducing blood pressure levels.
Apples also starve viruses. When their pectin fibers enter the digestive system, they release phytochemicals that bind onto viruses, shrouding viral cells so that they can’t feed and proliferate.
They are also high in malic acid that binds with any heavy metals in the brain. The word 'malic' comes from the Latin word 'malum', meaning 'apple' which is why I recommend to people who have brain or neurological symptoms to consume more apples.
Pineapple juice is filled with antioxidants, soluble fibre, and living water which keeps you full and hydrated at the same time. A perfect juice for weight loss.
1 cup of pineapple juice supplies over 50% of the daily amount of manganese, a trace mineral important in energy production and antioxidant defenses.
Pineapple strengthens the immune system. Look at the amour of protection around the flesh. The fruit can take up to 2 years from flower to fruit. It has to outlast all four seasons... twice!!!
A pineapple's resilient, strong, energetic nature gets passed onto us when we consume them.
Pineapple has large amounts of vitamin C like its orange cousin, but it also has bromelain, an enzyme that helps suppress coughs and loosens the mucus that often accompanies colds.
The power of bromelain and vitamin C work together as a bacteria fighter, mucus cutter, cough suppressant, and overall immune system booster in the body.
Red and brown or yellow onions are one of the best natural sources of quercetin, a bioflavonoid that is particularly well suited for scavenging free radicals and controlling the release of histamine.
Aside from its antioxidant properties, quercetin has been found to possess cancer-fighting, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties.
The sulfur in onions is part of what makes them nature’s antibiotic. It also helps rid the body of radiation exposure, casting out pathogens, and drawing out DDT and other pesticides, herbicides, and toxic heavy metals.
High in the trace minerals zinc, manganese, iodine, and selenium, onions help rejuvenate the skin and protect the lungs. They’re also helpful for the immune system and circulation.
