Why is pineapple cucumber juice good for you?
This juice is jammed packed with nutrients but let’s take a look.
Pineapples are nutrient-dense and contain high levels of manganese, copper, vitamin B6 and vitamin C. pineapple juice is also rich in antioxidants and bromalin. Bromalin is known to help reduce inflammation, improve digestion and support the immune system.
Since cucumbers have a high water volume, they are super hydrating and a great addition to juice. Cucumber juice is thought to help support healthy weight loss.
Cucumbers are rich in vitamins A, C, K, magnesium and potassium. Potassium is an electrolyte that is very helpful when it comes to hydration.
Coconut water is highly hydrating due to being high in electrolytes such as potassium. Often we are not getting the electrolytes we need to keep our bodies properly hydrated. Excess plain water is great at flushing out a lot of those valuable electrolytes. Adding coconut water to your daily routine (such as in the adrenal cocktail) can help you stay hydrated and gives the juice extra sweetness.
What else can I add to my pineapple cucumber juice?
Pineapple, cucumber and coconut water are great on their own but here are a few other ingredients you might want to add. Experiment and see what works for you.
Why should you use a cold press juicer?
Cold press juicers are a must! They are not only efficient at juicing but they also help retain nutrients and enzymes. Traditional juicers add heat due to the friction that’s created when the blades are spinning.
We highly recommend this Omega juicer.
