Greetings Cleansing Family,
Congrats on the third day of the New You Juice Challenge. What a team! Today, Thursday as part of your juice options we’re adding some incredible root superfoods: Tumeric and Diakon Radish.
Powerful Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma longa plant and has a tough brown skin and a deep orange flesh. Turmeric has long been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory in both the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine. Also it has been said to of been used to treat a wide variety of conditions, including Rheumatoid Arthritis. Turmeric is an excellent source of both iron and manganese. It is also a good source of vitamin B6, dietary fiber, and potassium. So you need to have turmeric in your daily health regime. For your juice today, we will be juicing fresh turmeric and I have been drinking it all day with ginger, what a party!
The next super root is raw daikon root, a white fleshed radish that has a very mild taste and is very low in calories, coming in at around 6 calories per ounce. Because of the multitude of benefits it gives, daikon is considered a superfood. It contains large amounts of enzymes that aid in fat and starch digestion as well as high levels of vitamin C, phosphorus and potassium. It also contains other phyto-nutrients that fight cancer.
Daikon root is primarily used in Asian cuisine and traditional Chinese medicine. They were hip to it a long time ago and I love diakon sliced in my miso soup. Daikon can also be juiced. Laboratory testing has shown that the enzyme profile in daikon juice is very similar to the human digestive tract.
Daikon has also been said to be used to treat and prevent migraines. It is a very effective diuretic. It causes the kidneys to process waste more effectively and thus excrete more urine. This helps to both improve kidney function and to treat edema. It also helps to clean the blood, eliminating the toxins through the kidneys, liver, sweat glands and digestive tract. Because of this, it helps food be digested more completely leading to less over eating and often weight loss.
So come and discover your roots: diakon and turmeric! Don’t forget to take time alone and if you get stressed, stop, follow your breath, watch your reactions and stay in the present moment. This will help you stay grounded. The rest of the folks out there that are not on the juice challenge can join us by eating raw salads and light vegan soups. This is another level that will allow you to detoxify.
Here are Today’s juice options:
