Those who juice regularly or take juicing like passion will agree with me that, vegetables are the players in any kind of juice blend. They are full of nutritional value and can help you with to gain sound health and remain healthy big time. Low amount of sugar, natural fiber and necessary vitamins are the main benefit you will get if you keep vegetables in your everyday juicing. Below we are showing you the best 7 green vegetables that you can consider keeping in you daily juice recipe. They all may not produce the same yield of juice but all we are considering here is the nutritional value of those vegetables.
Celery: A vegetable that can go with all other vegetables and fruits. Personally, I love to keep the juice simple (not to add too many fruits to make it sweeter) if I use Celery in it so that I can get all the nutrients without hampering it. A single stick of Celery contains huge amount of Potassium, Folate, Vitamin A, C and K. The leaves have more Potassium than the sticks so, always try to juice them as well. The high amount of Potassium is good for heart, muscles and proper food digestion.
Cucumbers: This is the natural base for juices and smoothies to benefit you with your hydration. This cooling food has 90-95% water ratio, making it a great choice among the vegetables. Cucumbers contains multiple B vitamins, which can help you with anxiety and reducing stress. This vegetable is also considered to reduce the chances of different cancers. Nutritionists also believe, cucumber can play a vital role in brain health and lowering the toxicity level of the body. Above all, it is a great vegetable that can boost up your weight loss process because of the low calorie and high fiber content.
Broccoli: Broccoli is something that you eat more likely than juice. It's also one kind of vegetables that need a push if juiced. For example, a beet or half or a carrot. If you only juice broccoli if may feel like unpleasant. Broccolis are full of fiber and protein. Along with that, they are also rich in Vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant and Vitamin K to improve your bone health. Just one cup of chopped broccolis in juice can fill up the need for daily Vitamin C and K of your body.
Kale: Unlike other vegetables mentioned above, Kale is bit intense due to its rich flavor. It's easy for the people who are new to juicing to get messed up with it. You can always try Spinach before moving to Kale if you are new. Kale is one of the member of Cruciferous vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables are really helpful against radiation, prevent cancer and reduce the chances of heart diseases. It is also considered that Kale contains the highest amount of Vitamin K among all the vegetables which is very supportive of bone health. It also has Calcium, Potassium, other minerals and lots of Vitamins.
Cabbage: More like Cucumbers, Cabbage also has 95% water content and can be a great base for juicing. As it tastes little bit watery, you can always add something to increase the flavor and the nutrition. It has an abundant amount of fiber content which can help you to gain you desired weight if you are on a journey to weight loss. Cabbage is a great source of Vitamin C, K, B6, Folate and Potassium. Recent study shows, it can prevent diabetes and multiple cardiovascular diseases.
Spinach I would suggest using Spinach if you want anything as an alternative to Kale. Often, we see people hate to eat Spinach, but you can always make it fun by juicing it. Vitamin A, B2, C and K, minerals like magnesium, manganese, iron, calcium, potassium and folate are the main good things it can provide you with. The antioxidant, beta-carotene, in Spinach have shown to combat different cancers. It can also help improve your eye health.
