**High Anti-Inflammatory Juicing**


The List

  • Turmeric – The most anti-inflammatory substance on Earth.
  • Ginger – The second most anti-inflammatory substance.
  • Berries – Raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries ect..
  • Beets – A total blood purifier and great for energy.
  • Dark Leafy Greens – Kale, spinach, collards, parsley, cilantro, ect…
  • Lemons with skin – The skin contains the anti-inflammatory compounds.
  • Pineapple – Great also for digestion and immunity.
  • Celery – Highly anti-inflammatory and cooling.

Now to create a smooth tasting anti-inflammatory juice, I like to break it up into base, greens, sweet and power ingredient.

  • Base:  Celery 4 stalks
  • Greens:  Kale and Spinach
  • Sweet:  Pineapple, Whole Lemon, Apple
  • Power: Ginger and or Turmeric

The celery provides a good water base with sodium included.  The pineapple and apple also provide a good water base, but with added sweetness.  The whole lemon with the skin is needed to neutralize the bitterness of the kale.  The spinach does not have a strong taste.  The power anti-inflammatory ingredients boost up the power of this juice.  The taste of Turmeric will be lost in this mix so you can add quite a bit and not even notice.  If you add a bit too much ginger, you will surely notice.

I hope you enjoy how I think up these combinations each day.  Have a great weekend! ~Nick:)

  1. Have you read about the benefits of using black pepper anytime you’re using turmeric? The piperine in the pepper increases the bioavailability of the curcumin in the turmeric (by 2000%), allowing your body to absorb more of the benefits before it is metabolized. Just a half teaspoon can make all the difference.
