Only One Glass of Fruit Juice a Day

Even though I have written one of the bestselling juice books – a new edition of SuperJuice is on sale now – you should not be drinking more than one glass a day.

Most children aged 11 to 19 get over 40% more sugar each day than the advised limit and fruit juices are not much better than cans of fizzy drink. A report in the Daily Mail shows that one glass of orange juice has as much sugar as 13 Hobnobs or three and a half doughnuts.

Smoothies, blackcurrant and supersized colas are even worse, but at least you get important nutrients from the orange; even more if you squeeze it yourself.

The alternative is to juice your own vegetables and use a glass a day as one of your 5, or even better, 7 portions.

Long Life Lemonade
2 tablespoons sauerkraut
1 lemon
1 medium beetroot with leaves
3 radishes (with leaves if possible)
3 carrots
2 apples

Sauerkraut might sound like a strange thing to juice, but this special pickled cabbage is a traditional Eastern European protective medicine against stomach ulcers and cancer. The massive potassium content of beetroot with its leaves helps keep blood pressure low, vital for a long and active life. Adding the radishes is specifically healing to the mucus membranes of the nose throat and sinuses while protecting against chest infections.

Vital statistics:
Super rich in beta carotene, vitamin C, potassium, folic acid, contains calcium and iron. The cancer protective properties of sauerkraut, beetroot and carrot, combined with the natural pectin fibre from the apples, which protects the heart and circulation, make this juice very special. It tastes much better than it sounds as the slightly acidic flavour of sauerkraut is offset by the sweetness of the other ingredients.

Good Mouthkeeping
6 radishes with leaves
6” leek, in lengthways strips
4 tomatoes, quartered
1 spring onion
4 carrots, topped & tailed
Optional: Worcester sauce & fresh ground black pepper to taste

More people lose their teeth through gum disease than tooth decay. Naturally, there’s no substitute for proper mouthkeeping and regular visits to your dentist and hygienist. However, smoking, alcohol and very hot drinks can all damage the delicate tissues inside the mouth and throat. This juice specifically protects these sensitive mucous membranes.

Vital statistics:
Super rich in vitamins A, C and carotenoids, contains folic acid, potassium and some calcium. Very high vitamin A content in carrots and tomatoes, together with the wide selection of other carotenoids and lycopenes offer specific protection against cancers of the mouth and throat. The sulphur content in radishes is antibacterial and their bitter flavour stimulates the flow of saliva, crucial to the prevention of gum disease.
