Why is this pineapple juice recipe anti-cancer
In this pineapple juice recipe, we have also included ginger as a new study revealed that ginger contains a pungent compound that is very powerful in targeting the cancer stem cells that are at the root of cancer malignancy. And, apples because they boost our immune system and keep us free from infections, which is so important especially during chemotherapy.
Juicing is a very effective way of getting all the nutrients our bodies need. And the juices that you buy in the supermarket aren’t the same. They don’t have the same juicing health benefits as they are made with additives and sugar in order to preserve the flavour and enhance the taste. It is fair to say that most of them hardly offer any significant nutritional value and they tend to increase your insulin levels and store fat, unless it’s a freshly pressed juice of course. However, juicing raw fruits releases lots of important antioxidants and other nutrients without spiking our insulin or storing fat. The taste might not be as sweet, particularly if you’re used to the concentrated high sugar juices but this type of juicing has lots and lots of benefits on our health.
Does pineapple juicing come with any risks?
Juicing in the morning and enjoying a fresh glass of pineapple juice with apple and ginger before you leave the house does help to keep the body energised and boost you with all the nutrients you need to start your day. It is also a great way to keep your body detoxified and remove free radicals and metals. But, are there any risks to juicing? To be honest there are not many risks with juicing pineapple unless your doctor has advised against juicing for a specific reason.
The risk with juicing
- Those with kidney conditions should be careful about what they juice since oxalate products (products high in vitamin C) could potentially worsen kidney stones
- Juicing alone may lower calories and lower the weight for a while but unsustainable without exercises and other long-term weight reduction plans
- Pineapples are high in sugar
- If juices consumed are not well kept in the fridge or vegetables not cleaned before juicing, they could cause infections
- Juices with laxatives and other bowel stimulating ingredients could see lots of nutrients being lost in the stool
- Too much consumption of insufficient calories could lead to decreased blood sugar and deny body the energy it needs leading to serious hunger, headaches, dehydration, weakness and even fainting. As such, juicing should never replace all the meals
