Benefits
  • Cancer Prevention

    Ginger has been shown in animal trials to help slow or even prevent cancerous tumor growth.

    Kale contains sulforaphane (especially when juiced), which is a chemical that has anti-cancer properties against many cancer types. The cancer-protective compounds in kale have thus been the subject of intense research, particularly their role in blocking the growth of cancer cells and inducing cancer cell death (apoptosis).

    The high copper and vitamin C content in pears as as good anti-oxidants that can protect cells from damages by free radicals.

    Liminoid is a compound found in oranges that has been found to help fight cancers of the mouth, skin, lung, breast, stomach and colon. The high vitamin C content also acts as a good anti-oxidant that protects cells from damages by free radicals.

  • Increased Blood Circulation

    Being a warming herb, ginger can help knock out a fever. This property also makes it effective in stimulating circulation of the blood. It can also help relax muscles around the blood vessels and is said to help prevent blood clots from forming. The warming effects make it a natural decongestant as well as an antihistamine, making it the perfect remedy for colds.

  • Weight Loss

    One of the main benefits of using kale in your juice blends is that it provides a large nutritional punch with one of the fewest calorie counts per cup of any other vegetable.

  • Immune System

    Kale studies reveal that sulforaphane helps support a healthy immune system, which is a key component in staving off cancer. Sulforaphane has been found to significantly enhance the production of several chemicals that are involved in the immune response, such as interleukin-2 and interferon-gamma.

    The anti-oxidant nutrients in pears are a great way to boost your immune system. Drink pear juice at the first sign of a cold.

    Oranges, being high in vitamin C can help stimulate white cells to fight infection, naturally building a good immune system.

    Pears have anti-oxidants and anti-carcinogen glitathione which helps prevent high blood pressure.

    A flavonoid called hesperidin found in oranges can lower high blood pressure.

  • Reduce Inflammation

    Ginger can also help reduce inflammation. So it can be used to treat any disease that is caused by inflammations such as arthritis or ulcerative colitis. Some studies show that it can even help inhibit the replication of the herpes simplex virus.

    Pear juice has an anti-inflammatory effect and helps relieve sufferers of much pain in various inflammatory conditions.

  • Cataracts Prevention

    In several studies, people with a history of eating lutein-rich foods like kale had up to 22% lower risk for cataracts, which would otherwise have been severe enough to require extraction.

  • Stomach Cancer Prevention

    Consuming vitamin C rich foods helps to lower the incidence of peptic ulcers and in turn, reduce the risk of stomach cancer.

  • Osteoporosis Prevention

  • Energy

    Pears have a high amount of fructose and gluclose, which helps you get a quick and natural boost of energy.

  • Heart Disease Prevention

    In Kale research, the benefits of lutein also extend to prevention of atherosclerosis. An 18-month study from the University of Southern California found that in a group of 480 men and women aged 40 to 60 with no history of heart disease, those with the lowest serum lutein concentration had a five-fold greater increase in carotid artery thickness, a risk factor for heart disease, compared with those who had the highest serum lutein concentrations. This study also included an in-vitro portion, which compared tissue cultures of cells exposed to various combinations of lutein and detrimental, low-density lipoprotein (LDL), which is known to promote atherosclerosis. The researchers found that pretreatment of cells with lutein dose-dependently protected the cells against inflammation associated with LDL plaque formation, again confirming lutein’s protective effect against atherosclerosis.

    Oranges, being high in flavonoids and vitamin C has been known to halve the risk of heart diseases.

  • Increased Libido

    Parsley is good for the sexual system. It builds the blood and stimulates brain activity.

  • Colon Cancer Prevention

    Kale is a rich source of organosulfur compounds, which is great at fighting many cancers, especially colon cancer. In other research, sulforaphane from Kale has been shown to have a more direct effect on cancer prevention, especially in colon cancer, inducing cancer cells to destroy themselves. This was seen in a recent study in which animals were genetically bred to develop intestinal polyps, a condition that leads to tumor formation. This group of animals was then fed sulforaphane and found to have higher rates of apoptosis (cell suicide) and smaller tumors that also grew more slowly than animals who received no sulforaphane.

  • Antioxidants

    The flavonoids in parsley—especially luteolin—have been shown to function as antioxidants that combine with highly reactive oxygen-containing molecules (called oxygen radicals) and help prevent oxygen-based damage to cells. In addition, extracts from parsley have been used in animal studies to help increase the antioxidant capacity of the blood.

  • Arthritis Prevention

    While one study suggests that high doses of supplemental vitamin C makes osteoarthritis, a type of degenerative arthritis that occurs with aging, worse in laboratory animals, another indicates that vitamin C-rich foods, such as parsley, provide humans with protection against inflammatory polyarthritis, a form of rheumatoid arthritis involving two or more joints.

  • Asthma Help

    Lemon juice assists in curing respiratory problems, along with breathing problems and revives a person suffering from asthma. Lemon, being a rich rich source of vitamin C, helps in dealing with respiratory disorders.
