    Juicing Fruit and Vegetables


    I had a juicer once - fell in love with it as I find it hard to eat certain fruit and vegetables, but have no trouble drinking them.

    My all-time favourite juice:

    beightroot, carrot, ginger, celery, silverbeet, apple

    Any other Ideas?

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to jakellpet again.

    I'm surprised more bodybuilders don't juice. Way more beneficial than a protein shake IMO with all the enzymes (aminos.)
    My usual is: carrot, apple, celery, broccoli, kale, spinach, and parsley with a little lemon juice.

    Amino acids are organic compounds made of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and (in some cases) sulfur bonded in characteristic formations. Strings of 50 or more amino acids are known as proteins, large molecules that serve the functions of promoting normal growth, repairing damaged tissue, contributing to the body's immune system, and making enzymes. The latter are a type of protein that functions as a catalyst, a substance that speeds up a chemical reaction without participating in it. Catalysts, of which enzymes in the bodies of plants and animals are a good example, thus are not consumed in the reaction.

    I love juicing, I just hate how much fruit/vegetable you need to get a cups worth. And, if you are trying to go all organic, fuggedabowdit!

    However, it is max sexyness for your health.

    Bump for more juicing mixtures.

    I mix carrots, with banana and baby spinach!!
    The sweetness of the banana helps the spinach and the carrot carries itself nicely and the pulp is great for baking muffins or pancakes.

    Same way I juice my carrot
    j/k the juicer I have shreds everything and separates the juice from the pulp. So virtually any friut or veggie can be juiced. We're not talkin citrus juicers here.

    I will incorporate beet juice into my regimen.

    Got this off good ole Wiki (the ultimate source LOL)

    Beet juice can help lower blood pressure. Research published in the American Heart Association journal Hypertension showed drinking 500ml of beetroot juice a day led to a reduction in blood pressure within one hour. The reduction was more pronounced after three to four hours, and was measurable up to 24 hours after drinking the juice.[6][7][8]

    Since Roman times, beetroot juice has been considered an aphrodisiac. It is a rich source of the mineral boron, which plays an important role in the production of human sex hormones. Field Marshal Montgomery is reputed to have exhorted his troops to 'take favours in the beetroot fields', a euphemism for visiting prostitutes.[9]. From the Middle Ages, beetroot was used as a treatment for a variety of conditions, especially illnesses relating to digestion and the blood. Platina recommended taking beetroot with garlic to nullify the effects of 'garlic-breath'.[10]

    Today the beetroot is still championed as a universal panacea.

    I mentioned this is another thread, but one of the best PWO shakes is some roasted/blended Winter Squash (Butternut, Kabocha, Acorn) etc. Mix in some Nutmeg, Cinnamon, and a Vanilla/Pumpkin Protein Powder and you're set. The squash is GI of 75, and loaded with nutrients.

    As a kid, I had great Apple/Carrot juices made from apples right off our tree

    In 95% of my protien shakes I put fruit into it. Just love the taste.
