Suffer from inflammatory pain resulting in conditions such as arthritis or gout? This juice will help alleviate those symptoms! Drink it twice daily for 30 days and notice significant improvement in your inflammatory pain!
There are a variety of inflammatory-related conditions, ranging from arthritis to inflammatory bowel disease and sinusitis as well as inflammatory skin conditions like eczema, acne, rosacea, dermatitis and psoriasis. The list doesn’t end there. In fact, many diseases nowadays are caused by a major influx of inflammation in the cells and tissues, whether that be from consuming the wrong foods or living in less-than-optimal environmental conditions (i.e., chemical hazards, smog, pollution, etc.).
Why does this juice work?
Turmeric: The potency of turmeric’s anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic effects have been equated with that of the popular pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory drugs like Motrin and hydrocortisone (but without the nasty side effects and toxicity of these isolated drugs). A daily dosage of curcumin was found to be more effective in easing post-surgical inflammation as the regular anti-inflammatory prescriptions. Curcumin has the ability to inhibit the activity of enzymes COX-2 and lipoxygenase, which contributes to turmerics amazing anti-inflammatory properties.
Pineapple: The major mechanism of action of the bromelain enzyme in pineapple (which is highly anti-inflammatory) is proteolytic in nature, and may also involve immunomodulatory and hormone like activity, which acts via intracellular signalling pathways. It has also been shown that bromelain significantly reduces CD4+T lymphocytes, which are the "bad guys" that make us feel the pain associated with inflammation. Research also indicates that the pain and discomfort associated with arthritis can be reduced by supplementing with 200 – 400 mg of bromelain per day (or you could just eat lots of pineapple every day and get the same effects – remember, the natural, real form of these enzymes are far better than their modified, synthetic form).
- 1 small pineapple, outsides removed (keep the core - more bromelain and it can be juiced!)
- 4 inches turmeric root (or 2 tbsp. turmeric powder)
- 4 large carrots
- 6 celery stalks
- 2 lemons, peeled if not organic
Juice the above ingredients into a juicer such as the Omega 8006, and enjoy!
