Today I want to share this amazing detoxifying, blood cleansing and energy boosting drink with you! There are three amazing ingredients: beets, carrots and celery. Lets take a look at their awesome qualities.
The body converts nitrates in beets to nitric oxide, a compound that relaxes arteries and improves blood circulation and oxygenation within the brain. An average 3-ounce beet provides 6 percent of your daily requirement for vitamin C, 4 percent of your daily requirement for iron and 8 percent of your daily requirement for fiber.
Attention ladies! Beets are also noted for their high levels of the B-complex vitamin folate, with 80 micrograms, or 20 percent of your daily requirement, in a 3.5-ounce serving. Folate is necessary for DNA production and amino acid metabolism and helps prevent neural tube defects during pregnancy.
Carrot juice is highly alkalizing to your body and helps flush your liver of toxic waste materials that can accumulate there. These alkaline properties and its wealth of vitamins and minerals cleanse your blood of contaminants and improve your eyes and skin.
Celery is a good anti-aging agent and contains essential vitamins for better skin care which are responsible for protecting against free radical damage. Celery is also a rich source of skin friendly minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, selenium and phosphorus which can maintain elasticity and give your skin a glow!

Cut and run produce through a juicer. Re-juice your pulp. Add some cinnamon and enjoy!
I love making fresh juice. I know it has the most nutrients and only natural sugars with no preservatives. You don't need to spend hundreds of dollars on a juice machine. I use a Hamilton Beach 67601A Juicer that's a little loud, but has plenty of power, isn't too hard to clean and most importantly - still works.
