Apple a day preparation

Method

Start with the mint leaves. You can squash them into one handful and drop the whole lot into the chute.

Add the plums next, a couple of pieces at a time. They will help push the mint leaves through.

Next, add the rockmelon one piece at a time.

Add all the ginger followed by the chopped-up pieces of pineapple core.

Finish with the pineapple adding one piece at a time and letting the machine push each piece through before adding more.

 

Tip: You can use any variety of plums and any type of melon for this juice recipe.

Apple A Day Juice Recipe

Health Benefits

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!!!

This resilient, strong nature of a single pineapple 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.

Plums

Plums are rich in minerals such as iron, manganese, potassium, phosphorous, and magnesium essential minerals for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function.

The magnesium in plums works as a natural tranquilizer which can sooth your nerves and also work as a catalyst to reinstate your natural REM sleep. 

Plums, like apples and strawberries, are a malic acid-rich food that bind with heavy metals in the brain. Heavy metals are implicated in memory loss, Alzheimer's, and Dementia.

 

Malic acid together with quinic acid accounts for the bulk of the organic acid content of ripe plum free plum juice.

Rockmelon

Rockmelons are rock stars when it comes to juicing.

You get lots of juice (it's 95% living water by weight) and very few calories. They are an excellent source of Vitamin A, C, iron, potassium, and calcium to help boost the immune system and hydrate the body.

Rockmelon is a sweet and delicious fruit to juice and is a wonderful way to start your morning. It has over 19 vitamins and minerals that help to boost the immune system, detoxify the organs, and deeply hydrate and alkalinize the body.

The high vitamin C content in rockmelon is critical for immune system support and to fight bacterial and viral infections. Cantaloupe is also excellent for helping to relieve nerves and calm anxieties.

Mint

Beneficial for respiratory system issues such as bronchitis, asthma, and respiratory inflammation.

Packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants such as vitamin A, C, B-complex, beta carotene, iron, magnesium, calcium, manganese, and potassium.

It is wonderful for digestive ailments such as nausea, indigestion, ulcers, halitosis, and flatulence. It can also provide relief from headaches, sinus congestion, sore throats, fatigue, stress, and anxiety.

Mint can help promote blood circulation and improve metabolism making it an excellent choice for cleansing and weight loss.

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.
