Juicing has always been a great way to get a high dose of the natural anti-inflammatory nutrients, enzymes and phytonutrients contained in the soluble fibres of fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables such as pineapple, apples and ginger give the body nutrients that it needs to open the airways and help you to breath easier. Here is a recommended natural juice that you must try ;)
4 golden delicious apples
1 knob ginger
Cut the skin from the pineapple and then cut into long thin slices (You don’t need to remove the eyes ;) )
Chop the core into small pieces
Cut the ginger in thin slices
Cold Press Juicing with Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer:
Begin by juicing the pineapple slices one by one, including the core. Next juice the thin slices of ginger all at once. This will coat the inside of the juicer with ginger and you will get more flavour. Finish juicing with the apples whole if they fit or cut if they are larger. Happy Juicing with Kuvings !!! :)
Health NotesApples – The National Heart and Lung Institute conducted research that concluded that: ‘Phytochemicals in apples such as flavonoids and phenolic acids helped to calm the inflammation in the airways. There are more than 20,000 flavonoids and one in particular, khellin in apples has been shown to open up airways due to its lipophilic properties.
Pineapple – bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapples may have a therapeutic effect on asthma. The journal Evidenced-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine highlighted the results of a study that investigated how bromelain reduces allergic sensitization and stops development of other inflammatory responses affecting the airways.
Ginger – It has been found that ginger aids bronchodilation which is attributed to nutrients such as gingerols, shogaols and zingerones. It is believed that these compounds have particular anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties similar to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
