CUCUMBER LEMON JUICE
I wanted to create a juice that was delicious, hydrating and good for cramping and muscle aches. After some tasty experimenting, I came up with this delicious and nutritious combination.
I started with cucumber as a base, as it is hydrating, alkalizing, and anti-inflammatory. Apples add sweetness, while delivering phytonutrients that can act as antioxidants. Next I added ginger, which has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, has been known to ease cramping, muscle aches and nausea while cleansing your body and boosting your immune system. Finally, I added lemon. Lemon juice brings in that yummy zing taste and is high in vitamin C. The high potassium content of lemons is very effective in removal of the toxic substances found in kidneys and its disinfectant properties help cure infections in the urinary system. The citric acid in lemon is an excellent fat burner, and highly alkaline!
