Broccoli is the show stealer in this juice cocktail. When I am creating a juice, I try to amp up the health benefits, and the focus of this one is cancer-fighting broccoli. This tree-like vegetable contains some amazing super powers when it comes to our immune health. It packs the powerful punch of the antioxidant vitamin C, is awesome at helping our bodies detox and get rid of unwanted contaminants, and has anti-inflammatory properties. This combination makes broccoli a great choice for cancer prevention. So how much broccoli does one need to eat to reap the health benefits of this amazing vegetable? Turns out, just half a cup a day or 2 cups per week! Eat it raw, steam it, stir fry it up, or juice it! The possibilities are endless, but the important thing here is to start including the amazing broccoli into your meals.
Juicing broccoli stems is a great way to use the whole vegetable so none of it goes to waste. The flavor is mild, and it adds a lot of liquid to your juice, making it a great addition in any juice combination. The hint of ginger and sweetness of carrots are sure to make this juice one of your favorites!
