How To Make An Orange Zinger Juice
Juicing is the most efficient way to get a variety of nutrients quickly absorbed at once. It is one of the most effective methods of healing through nutrition. If your juicing has been less than exciting lately, perhaps it's time to give your fresh juices some extra zing.
A Harvard Study looked at the benefits of juicing and affirmed that supplementing your diet with fresh juices may help to fill in the gaps for a healthier life.
According to the report: "In the past five years, some studies have found a potential link between certain juices and health:
- Kale juice may improve lipid levels, such as cholesterol, which affect your risk of heart disease.
- Carrot juice may reduce oxidative stress in cells in women treated for breast cancer.
- Citrus-based juices and carrot juice may reduce heart disease risk."
Zing Is Better Than Bling
This vibrant juice recipe comes straight from the Jack LaLanne playbook. The godfather of fitness was one of the first to enthusiastically introduce juicing for health. He even coined the term zinger, when it came to his juices. Lalanne was a fan of ginger. He would use ginger liberally in his fresh juices because it gave his juices a bite – or zing. Whether he prepared fresh apple, orange or beet juices, he would frequently add ginger.
Jack Lalanne Knew...
Always ahead of his time, Jack Lalanne knew the incredible healing benefits of eating ginger daily, and he knew ginger as a triple-duty medicinal spice. Some of the miraculous ways ginger works is by preventing colds and flu. Ginger also acts as a potent anti-inflammatory, and is an effective anti-spasmatic, stopping stomach pains or cramps in their tracts. Ginger also helps works to relieve muscle aches and vertigo.
Lalanne likely knew that oranges are the perfect healing food. And that oranges are jammed packed with a good amount of both vitamins and minerals. This makes oranges the top go-to food for regaining health. Oranges also pack a major punch of vitamin C, but are also a significant source of calcium, lutein, iron, magnesium, beta carotene, potassium and B-complex.
Carrots add more medicinal and anti-aging benefits to this juice and are well known for their skin, eye and hair supporting benefits. Carrots are also high in vitamin A and beta-carotene. Combining carrots with orange and ginger make this fresh juice zinger fully loaded and satisfying.
4 oranges peeled
1 thumb-sized piece of ginger
4 medium, or two large carrots
Push the ginger through the juicer first. Next press the carrots through, then the oranges. Enjoy your zinger immediately after juicing to get the full nutrient benefit. This recipe also works well with apples and beets.
Reap The Benefits Of Juicing
While ginger helps combats viruses and eases aches and pains, oranges help to strengthen the bones and calm the nerves. Carrots fortify the skin, hair and the eyes. Together they make a well rounded combination for revitalizing your health when taken daily.
