Apple Hydrator Juice Recipe
We all know the importance of staying well-hydrated throughout the day to keep your brain function high, your lymphatic system flushed and of course, your blood flowing.
What you may not know is that the water content of fresh juice is filtered by nature and highly bioavailable to your cells because of the beneficial glucose, vitamins and mineral the water naturally contains
This juice recipe, as an example, is 80% living water or what I always like to call Liquid Nutrition.
And another bonus is that you don’t have any plastic bottles to throw away after drinking it.
A refreshing sweet-tasting juice with a spicy ginger hit.
- 4 apples (any colour)
- 4 celery stalks
- 1 ginger piece, 2cm
- ground cinnamon, dusting (optional)
Juicing Time: 3 mins
Juice Qty: 900 ml
- Chop stalks into small thumb-size pieces across the stalks (this shortens the long stringy cellulose fibre and stops it from wrapping around the press)
- You can juice celery leaves, however it will add bitterness, so discard if you don’t like this
- 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
- Wash and dry
- Cut into thin pieces the size of your thumbnail leaving the skin on
Start making this juice recipe by adding the celery pieces one handful at a time and allowing the juicer to press them through before adding more.
Once you finish juicing the celery add the chopped ginger.
Finish with the apples adding them one at a time.
Tip: you can dust the top of this juice with some ground cinnamon if you like the flavour.
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.
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
Ginger is one of the world’s oldest and most popular medicinal spices. It is known to greatly aid in digestion and assimilation and is widely regarded to help prevent colds, flu, motion sickness, and vertigo.
Ginger is like every's favourite Auntie (anti). Anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-spasmodic, anti-nausea, anti-bacterial.
Ginger will support your overall immune system, so is great to use during the winter months, to help fight off colds. Gingerols in ginger cause a rapid and noticeable widening of the blood vessel walls and in turn helps to enhance circulation and also lower blood pressure.
Ginger also has its own signature variety of vitamin C and helps bring the body out of a reactive state when you’re sick.
Cinnamon contains anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral properties that boost your immune system, kill microorganisms such as staph, E. coli, and cold and flu germs. Consider adding a couple of pinches of cinnamon to your morning tea, smoothie, or juice.
