Magic Manda preparation

Method

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.

Health Benefits

Radish

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. From aiding digestion to boosting immunity and even promoting weight loss, radishes have been valued for their medicinal properties for centuries.

The leaves of radish can be eaten or juiced if they are fresh. They are almost as good as cilantro for removing radiation and heavy metals like mercury, lead, and aluminum from the body.

Nutrition: Radishes are low in calories but high in fiber, vitamin C, and other nutrients. They also contain antioxidants like anthocyanins and quercetin, which help protect cells from damage.

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

Immune System: The high vitamin C content in radishes helps support a healthy immune system by promoting the production of white blood cells, which are essential for fighting off infections. Additionally, radishes contain other immune-boosting nutrients like zinc and vitamin A, which help maintain the integrity of the skin and mucous membranes, the body's first line of defense against pathogens.

Cardiovascular / Circulatory System: Radishes are a good source of potassium, which is essential for maintaining healthy blood pressure levels. Potassium helps relax blood vessels and improve blood flow, reducing the strain on the cardiovascular system. Radishes contain antioxidants like vitamin C and anthocyanins, which can help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in the blood vessels and heart. This can lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Respiratory System: 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.

Carrot

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.

Apple

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.

Nutrition: Apples contain vitamins C and K, as well as potassium. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that supports the immune system, while vitamin K is important for blood clotting and bone health. Potassium is essential for heart health and muscle function. Apples are rich in antioxidants, including flavonoids and polyphenols. These compounds may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation.

All Systems: 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.

Cardiovascular / Circulatory System: Apples contain nutrients like vitamin C and potassium, which are important for heart health. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that supports the immune system, while potassium helps regulate blood pressure. Some research suggests that eating apples may be associated with a reduced risk of stroke, possibly due to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Some research suggests that eating apples may be associated with a reduced risk of stroke, possibly due to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

Digestive System: 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. 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.

Nervous System: 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.

Beetroot

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.

Nutrition: They are rich in iron and nitric oxide which allows nutrients to flow through the capillaries which are so small that red blood cells can only travel single-file through them.

Cardiovascular / Circulatory System: The folate in beetroot 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 'heart beat'.

Immune System: 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 higher in iron than spinach leaves.

Muscular System: Beetroot is beneficial for the muscular system due to its high content of nitrates, which are converted into nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide helps improve blood flow to the muscles, which can enhance exercise performance and reduce fatigue. Additionally, beetroot is rich in potassium, magnesium, and iron, which are important for muscle function, energy production, and oxygen transport. Including beetroot in your diet can support muscle health and improve overall athletic performance.

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.
