Chlorophyll Cocktail Juice Recipe

by | May 4, 2022 | Juicing for Health

Description

There is a lot of living chlorophyll in this juice recipe. It is a cocktail of fresh fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, and herbs. You probably wouldn’t sit down and eat a whole bunch of parsley and then a bunch of raw kale leaves which is why juicing them is so beneficial. It is a powerful way to extract all the liquid nutrition.

The taste of this juice may surprise you as it did me. I expected it to be very green tasting but It was sweet, herbal and tangy. A very enjoyable, healthy juice to drink.

Magic Manda preparation

Method

Start with the parsley adding large handfuls at a time.

Next, add the kale also in large handfuls to the juicer. You will need the pusher to push down the kale onto the press in between handfuls.

Next, add the whole apple as it will help push the greens through the juicer.

Add the cucumber chunks one at a time after the apple has pressed through fully.

Finish making this juice recipe by putting the whole, peeled lime, into the juicer.

 

 

Tip: Choose smaller sized, tight leaved kale for a more mild flavour. The leaves should not be yellowed or brown. For maximum health benefits, use flat-leaf parsley over curly varieties.

Health Benefits

Chlorophyll is full of magnesium, which helps with blood flow and reduces the chance of hypertension and atherosclerosis.

I prefer getting chlorophyll from juicing plants, not taking supplements. Liquid chlorophyll supplements don’t contain chlorophyll, but a compound called chlorophyllin, a semi-synthetic mixture of sodium copper salts isolated from chlorophyll.

Foods with a high chlorophyll content that are suitable for juicing are alfalfa, asparagus, broccoli, brussels sprouts, celery, coriander, kale, parsley, spinach, and of course the highest is wheatgrass.

Kale

Kale is brain food.

A nutritionally packed leafy vegetable that contains incredible healing and rejuvenating properties. Kale is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, chlorophyll, amino acids, vitamins A, C, E, K, B-complex and minerals such as iron, magnesium, copper, and potassium.

Kale is among the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet.

The most beneficial component is its ability to relieve inflammation, thanks to its antioxidants.

Kale also provides a good amount of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids in the form of alpha linolenic-acid (ALA), vital for good brain health.

Parsley

Parsley is in a class of its own because of its skill at alkalizing all the body systems. Used on a regular basis, parsley can alkalize the entire body, driving out the acidity. The herb is an all-purpose pathogen-fighter; it keeps bacteria, parasites, and fungus at bay.

This herb is sometimes called a “chemoprotective” plant because it helps protect DNA from damage and stops cell mutation.

Parsley provides high levels of vitamin K, an essential nutrient for maintaining bone density, and is an excellent herb to replenish you when you are feeling depleted and exhausted.

Parsley is amazing for anything mouth-related too such as gum disease, tooth decay, and dry mouth, as it impedes the growth of unproductive microorganisms there.

Cucumber

Cucumber juice is highly alkalinizing and very hydrating. When your blood is well hydrated it can carry more oxygen which increases energy levels, kills bacteria and viruses and improves circulation.

Cucumbers can counteract toxins and lift depression; cleanse the blood; quench thirst, moisten the lungs, and purify the skin.

Cucumber juice also cools most inflammatory or heat-related conditions, including stomach inflammation, conjunctivitis, sore throat, acne, and inflamed skin diseases. Hence the saying cool as a cucumber.

Cucumbers are also allies to the liver due to their ability to hydrate it. Your liver’s always in need of living water that’s filled with minerals and other nutrients because your liver keeps your blood hydrated. It relies on sources such as cucumber for that living water.

Plus you get lots of juice without any calories.

Apple

Apples are the Queen of all 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.

Lime

When you think of limes think of cleansing your Lymphatic system.

They may only be small but do not let the size make you think they don’t pack a punch. They are ultra-hydrating and electrolyte-producing because of the mineral salts.

Limes also contain some of the most highly absorbable vitamin C around.

Fresh-squeezed lime offers bioactive calcium that your body craves, antioxidant flavonoids for fighting disease, and they help purge many toxic substances like plastics and synthetic chemicals.

Tip: fresh lime juice squeezed onto a small cut or abrasion is a powerful disinfecting, antibacterial aid.
