If you have a Jack LaLanne juicer machine and are looking for some tasty fresh fruit juice recipes then look no further. Here are some fresh juice recipes that are ideally suited for a Jack LaLanne juicer machines.
Jack LaLanne Recipe #1 – Merry Berries
2 cups of blackberries
1 cup of blueberries
1/2 cup of strawberries
This berry juice recipe is excellent for promoting the health of the arteries and therefore reducing our risk of heart disease. Blackberries and blueberries contain a rich concentration of phytochemicals called anthocyanins that protect our arteries from oxidative damage that can lead to plaque build ups on the artery walls. Additionally anthocyanins work together with vitamin C to create very strong and elasticized artery walls.
Jack LaLanne Recipe #2 – Apple Lemon Heaven
1/2 of a lemon – flesh only
Apples are a great source of antioxidants called bioflavonoids that have potent anti-cancer and anti-heart disease effects. Apples are also a great source of soluble fiber called pectin. Unlike insoluble forms of fiber, soluble fiber actually makes it through a juicing machine and into the juice. This is good news because getting pectin in the diet is a proven way of lowering total blood cholesterol levels. Some of the cholesterol in the food we eat makes it into the intestines were it can then be absorbed into the blood stream and contribute to total blood cholesterol levels. However, pectin binds with cholesterol in the intestines and inhibits the cholesterol from entering the blood stream! It is then of no surprise that several of the studies that tested the effects of a daily apple juice upon the blood cholesterol levels of volunteers with high cholesterol all conclusively found that apple juice lowered their total cholesterol levels.
Jack Lalanne Recipe #3 – B Vitamin Blast
1 guava fruit
Using mangoes and guava fruit in your Jack LaLanne juicer recipes is a great way to ensure you are getting most of the essential B vitamins in your diet. A combination of mango and guava juice supplies vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5 and B6. We need these vitamins for converting the energy from the food we eat into a form that is used by the trillion cells in our bodies. If we get low on B vitamins we can also get low on energy levels and even develop nervous system problems and muscular disorders.
