Description

This juice recipe is for those times of the year when you first start to feel a bit run down and your immune system needs a little boost from nature’s natural immune-boosting nutrition.

Taste

I love the spicy kick of turmeric and ginger in this recipe. It balances well with the tang of the lemon and sweetness of the honey.

Ingredients

  • 2 oranges, peeled
  • 2 lemons, peeled
  • 100g fresh turmeric
  • 100g fresh ginger

Juicing Time: 6 mins
Juice Qty: 300 ml
Serves: 6

Sweet n Spicy ingredients

Preparation

Oranges

  • Thinly cut off the orange skin leaving as much white pith as possible
  • Juice whole or cut in half if too big to fit into the wide chute

Lemon (peeled)

  • Remove stickers and cut off any hard endpoints
  • Thinly cut off the lemon skin leaving as much white pith as possible

Ginger

  • Wash and dry
  • Cut into thin pieces the size of your thumbnail leaving the skin on

Turmeric

  • Wash and dry
  • Cut into thin pieces the size of your thumbnail leaving the skin on

 

Tip: Keep the orange and lemon peel to use when cleaning the juicer

Method

The best way to make this juice recipe is to alternate the ingredients.

I added one orange to start so the turmeric doesn’t stick to the press then added a handful of turmeric pieces followed by a handful of ginger pieces.

Continue to alternate adding ingredients saving one lemon until last.

Pour into ice molds and freeze.

Once frozen you can place one ice cube in a mug, pour over hot water and add some raw honey for extra immune boosting properties.

 

Tip: make sure to flush with water immediately after making this juice and add the orange and lemon peel to help clean the press and strainer.

 

Made this one using the REVO830

Health Benefits

Orange

Oranges help quench your thirst and moisten your lungs, letting the energy flow freely in the chest. They also have a wide variety of phytonutrient compounds like anthocyanins, citrus flavanones, and various polyphenols. Oranges are not only a juicy and refreshing fruit but also offer a range of health benefits. Here's why oranges are good for various systems in our body:

Nutrition: Oranges are low in calories but high in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage. They also contain fiber, potassium, and other vitamins and minerals that support overall health.

Immune System: Vitamin C is essential for a healthy immune system. Oranges are a great source of vitamin C, which can help boost the immune system and reduce the risk of colds, flu, and other illnesses. Oranges destroy free radicals that cause signs of skin aging, scouring the intestine and flushing toxins from the body. Freshly squeezed orange juice is a predigested food. This allows for immediate absorption of all its abundant healing properties.

Digestive System: Oranges are a good source of fibre, which can help promote healthy digestion and prevent constipation. The fibre in oranges also helps support a healthy gut microbiome.

Cardiovascular/Circulatory System: Oranges are rich in antioxidants like flavonoids, which have been shown to help reduce inflammation and improve heart health. The potassium in oranges can also help regulate blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease.

Nervous System: Oranges contain vitamin B6, which is important for the production of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. These neurotransmitters play a role in mood regulation and can help reduce stress and anxiety.

Respiratory System: Oranges are rich in vitamin C, which can help support respiratory health. Vitamin C has been shown to reduce the severity and duration of respiratory infections like the common cold. Oranges are full of lung-friendly antioxidants and packed with vitamin C which is well known for fighting infection and inflammation.

Skin Health: The antioxidants in oranges, including vitamin C, can help reduce the signs of aging and improve skin health. Oranges can also be used topically to improve skin tone and texture.

Skeletal System: Oranges are a good source of calcium, which is important for maintaining strong and healthy bones. Calcium is essential for bone mineralization and can help reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

Eye Health: Oranges contain nutrients like vitamin A, lutein, and zeaxanthin, which are important for eye health. These nutrients can help reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.

Lemon

Lemons are a must have ingredient in any juicing kitchen. They help make veggie juices taste better and help fruit juices last long when stored in the fridge. Lemons are rich in bioflavonoids which can significantly boost the immune system and reduce inflammation in the body. Lemon juice is known to be particularly beneficial for colds, coughs, and sore throats.

Lemons are not only a bright and tangy addition to dishes but also offer a range of health benefits. Here's why lemons are good for various systems in our body:

Nutrition: Lemons are low in calories but high in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage. They also contain citric acid, potassium, and other nutrients that support overall health.

Digestive System: The citric acid in lemons can help improve digestion by stimulating the production of stomach acid. This can aid in the digestion of food and prevent digestive issues like indigestion and bloating.

Immune System: Vitamin C is essential for a healthy immune system. Lemons are a great source of vitamin C, which can help boost the immune system and reduce the duration and severity of colds and flu. 

Detoxification: Lemons are often used in detox diets because they can help cleanse the body and promote the elimination of toxins. The citric acid in lemons helps stimulate the liver, which is the body's main detoxification organ. Lemons act as a cleanser and astringent; they squeeze toxins from the tissues and stimulate the liver to detoxify. Lemon juice is also beneficial for removing poisons in the form of old drug residues from the body.

Skin Health: The antioxidants in lemons, including vitamin C, can help reduce the signs of aging and improve skin health. Lemon juice can also be used topically to lighten dark spots and blemishes on the skin.

Hydration: Lemon water is a refreshing and hydrating beverage that can help keep you hydrated throughout the day. Staying hydrated is important for overall health and can help improve energy levels and mood.

Ginger

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.

Turmeric

Turmeric is one of the most studied spices in the world with thousands of people looking into its health and healing benefits every day.

Nutrition: Turmeric is rich in a compound called curcumin, which has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. These properties make turmeric beneficial for various aspects of health. Curcumin, has phenomenal anti-cancer properties and has been known to help to inhibit prostate, skin, colon, mouth, esophageal, lung, stomach, pancreatic, liver, and breast cancer.

Cardiovascular / Circulatory System: Turmeric helps improve endothelial function, which is important for regulating blood pressure and preventing blood clot formation. Turmeric also helps lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease.

Immune System: Let's start with it boosting the health of your immune system through its amazing anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties it holds. Turmeric's antioxidant properties help protect the body from free radical damage and strengthen the immune response. Curcumin has also been shown to have antimicrobial properties, which can help fight infections.

Nervous System: Some studies suggest that curcumin may help improve memory and reduce the risk of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's disease, by increasing levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a growth hormone that is crucial for brain function. I think turmeric is critical to calm down anything in the body that’s inflamed and causing pain, from nerves to joints to inflammation in the brain.

Muscular / Skeletal System: Also after a workout or any heavy day's labor, try to consume more turmeric. It can shorten recovery time for muscles, ligaments, and joints after exercise, and it also acts as an anti-inflammatory for any minor injuries. The anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric may help reduce pain and inflammation in conditions like arthritis, making it a popular natural remedy for joint pain.

Respiratory System: Its active compound, curcumin, is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent that can help reduce inflammation in the respiratory tract, making it beneficial for respiratory conditions such as asthma and bronchitis.
