Juice enthusiasts!

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.
