People have turned to juicing to improve their overall health, increase their energy, and
combat common health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and asthma.
While juicing works for everyone, not everyone is going to like or need the popular
juicing recipes that can be easily found today. But with a little bit of investigation, you
can create a scrumptious juice recipe that targets your specific health condition and tastes
great.

The first step is to truly understand your health condition. Find out what will improve the
condition by researching which vitamins and/or minerals your condition is linked with.
Several different health problems are directly linked to the lack of certain vitamins and/or
minerals within the diet.

For example, research has shown that folic acid plays a major role with those who have
breathing problems such as asthma. Tests show that those who have a higher intake of
folic acid have fewer allergy symptoms and a lower occurrence of asthma. Once you
have learned what vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients benefit your specific disorder,
disease, or condition you want to improve, you will need to understand which fruits and
vegetables contain these nutrients.

Choosing the right ingredients for your recipes is key. Certain fruits and vegetables are
known for their high levels of certain vitamins or minerals. For instance, we all know
that bananas contain a large amount of potassium and oranges contain a large amount of
vitamin C. You should become familiar with different fruits and vegetables in order to
choose the ones that will help your condition. Purchase high-quality produce. The higher
the quality of fruits and vegetables that you put into your system, the healthier you will
become. Use organic and local produce whenever possible.

Actually, the best produce is the kind you grow in your backyard. By growing your own
produce, you can be sure it’s grown without the use of pesticides, and that you are
receiving the maximum amount of nutrients. But we can’t all be gardeners, so if you
purchase your produce from the local grocery store, make sure that you wash it off really
well before juicing to ensure that no pesticides linger. Experience will tell you how much
of the particular fruit or vegetable you will need to make a juice helping. As you can
imagine, it takes quite a bit of food to make one serving of juice. You will need one
pound of most fruits and vegetables in order to make one cup of juice.

Creating your own recipes is so easy. Since most of the vitamin content in fruits and
vegetables is located with in the peel, there is no need to peel any of the food. Just
simply take out the larger seeds and pits. The juicer will remove the rest, including the
stems. Cut the produce into manageable pieces and throw it in the juicer. It’s that easy.
Once you know your ingredients and your condition, there’s almost no limit to creating
really wonderful juicing recipes. Feel free to experiment and try different produce
combinations to find out what tastes good together.
