Intensely orange, Intensely delicious antioxidant Juice

Recently I came down with a little case of food poisoning, my entire body was in immune red alert mode and I felt this through extreme tiredness and muscle pain all over, similar to the feeling of being run over by a small mule. I couldn’t eat anything the next day and so the day after that I decided I needed a real antioxidant fix to get rid of all those free radicals which were still probably flying around the place.
I love carrots, I consider them a super food, super aromatic,super crispy and super loaded with vitamin C the immune boosting vitamin. The antioxidants and phytochemicals in carrots may also help with blood sugar regulation, this is helpful when making juices especially if you are including fruit.
I am also a huge fan of red peppers, not only are they tasty they are also pretty damn impressive on the nutritional scale. Red peppers contain almost 300 percent of your daily requirement of vitamin C. This by the way is also essential for absorbing the mineral iron really important for our blood.

Red bell peppers are a great source of vitamin B6 and magnesium. Magnesium has been proven to reduce symptoms of chronic pain, fatigue and insomnia.
And so the recipe. Unfortunately you do need a juicer for this one.

Ingredients

8 carrots
1/2 bell pepper

1 small red apple

1 lime

Small piece of ginger

Pop everything in the juicer and away you go!   
 

  
Mmmmmm! So orange! 

Enjoy!
