Packed full of vitamin C and A, alkalising and anti-inflammatory, this juice is perfect for when you feel a cold coming on, or you’re suffering from any aches and pains. Having recently experimented with juicing, I can honestly say that adding a few juices a week to my diet has given me more energy, ability to focus, and a huge boost of nutrients.

Optional extras:

Oregano essential oil = extremely high in antioxidants, this oil is the secret to staying well throughout ‘cold and flu season’. The essential oil is very strong, so use no more than 2-3 drops each time you take it, the taste is strong too so either mix it with your juice, or purchase the oil in a capsule form. Please note that ingesting essential oils should only be done under the supervision of someone experienced in this field, and only with pure, high quality oils.

Raw honey = antibacterial, antifungal, and brilliant for the immune system. If you want to make this addition extra effective, add manuka honey with a strength of at least +12.

Cayenne pepper = a good way to boost digestion, and perfect for clearing any chesty coughs and excess mucus

Moringa = Coined ‘nature’s miracle tree’, you’ll often find moringa in powder form. It’s very high in vitamins, minerals and amino acids, calcium and potassium and can also help protect the liver against toxicity and damage.
