Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season and sick-free winter! Unfortunately during the magical time of Christmas, also comes many head colds and respiratory issues. I made a juice recipe that should give your immune system an immediate boost. The secret ingredient? Bell peppers..
Benefits of juicing bell peppers:
- Yellow and red bell peppers have 4x more vitamin C than oranges; green bell peppers have 2x more. The vitamin C helps prevent blood clots and especially respiratory problems, which makes it a vital part of healing from a cold!
- Bell peppers also contain vitamin B-complex, A, E and various minerals such as magnesium, iron, zinc and potassium.
- Full of anti-oxidants which can lower your cholesterol, protect your skin and lowers your risk of cancer.
Give your immune system a boost! Try this recipe:
1 yellow bell pepper
1 inch of peeled ginger
Step one: wash all of your fruits and veggies
Step two: juice the carrots, oranges and yellow bell peppers
Step three: juice the lemon and finally, ginger
Step four: stir, pour and enjoy!
