I love a little bit of fresh fruit like apple, pear or pineapple in my green smoothie, along with lots of fresh mint and fresh turmeric root for it’s wonderful anti-inflammatory/alkalising effects. Adding roots to your juice like turmeric, ginger and beet are fantastic for grounding you and turmeric is well known for helping ward off colds and flus, helping with indigestion, lowering blood sugar levels, reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke, and helping to prevent cancer. (I’d say that’s worth adding to your regular diet!)
