The ingredients are packed with many health benefits known to cleanse the blood of plaque and promote good bacteria in the colon. It has a sweet vegetable flavour with a slightly peppery taste from the radishes and a nice tang from the whole lemon and sauerkraut juice.
- 3 carrots

- 2 red apples
- 1 baby beetroot
- 2 tbsp sauerkraut juice
- 1 lemon
Juicing Time: 5 mins
Juice Qty: 650ml
- Cut in half
- Juice with skin on
- Cut carrots lengthwise once
- If larger carrots are used cut again lengthwise
- Cut in half or quarters if larger
- Juice with skin on (you can also juice the leaves and stems).
- 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.
- Remove stickers and cut off any hard end points
- Slice lemons into rounds with skin on to give more flavour and get more juice from each lemon.
- Pour off 2 tbsp of juice into a small container
Keep the cap closed at the start to blend the first couple of ingredients.
Begin juicing the radishes. Add them in one by one then juice the carrots also one-half at a time. Go slow and let the juice machine juice each half before adding in another.
You can now pour the sauerkraut juice into the juicer.
Add the beetroot halves one at a time and let the juice mix in before opening the cap to release the juice into the jug.
Next juice each of the apples straight into the jug and finish with the slices of lemon.
Tip: If you don’t have enough sauerkraut juice in the jar you can put 2 tbsp of the sauerkraut through the juicer.
There are over 30 different types of radish varieties. They come in all kinds of different colors including red (common variety), purple, white, pink, black, yellow, and almost everything in between.
The leaves of radish can be eaten or juiced if they are fresh. They are almost as good as cilantro for removing heavy metals like mercury, lead, and aluminum from the body.
Radish bulbs can assist in respiratory disorders, bronchitis and asthma. It is a known decongestant, i.e. it helps relieve congestion of the respiratory system including nose, throat, and lungs.
Other health benefits include:
- Helps with headache and nausea
- Improve blood circulation
- Mouth & breath freshener
- Regulates metabolism
- Preventing heart disease
Carrots are well known in juicing circles as the ‘anti-cancer kings’ of the vegetable world. They contain antioxidants including alpha-carotene, lutein, beta-carotene and lycopene to name a few. Beta-carotene is the main nutrients when it comes to its cancer preventing properties. The body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A. It is believed that beta-carotene can break down the protective mucous membrane around cancer cells.
Carrot juice is also an effective natural remedy for an ulcer in the stomach. When carrots are juiced, they’re higher in antiseptic phytochemical compounds that inhibit the growth of unfriendly microorganisms in the intestines.
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.
Beetroots are regarded as the "jewel" of the vegetable kingdom. They are the sweetest of all vegetables, they're loaded with nutrients and plant-based minerals that can ward off disease and help you experience amazing health.
The folate in beetroots helps lower high levels of homocysteine in your blood. Homocysteine is an amino acid produced when animal proteins are broken down. They can damage and narrow your arteries, which may lead to heart attacks and strokes.
The nutritional qualities of beetroot profoundly affect the pulse and the rhythmical pattern of the heart. I like to say that beets help your heartbeat.
Beetroot leaves can also be eaten or juiced if you have them available. They have known benefits for improving eye health, vitamin K, and vitamin C, for boosting the immune system. The leaves are actually higher in iron than spinach leaves.
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 act as a cleanser and astringent; they squeeze toxins from the tissues and stimulate the liver to detoxify. Lemon juice is good for asthma, headaches, pneumonia, and arthritis.
Lemon juice is also beneficial for removing poisons in the form of old drug residues from the body.
