A PASSION FOR FRUIT
Most fresh fruits are exceptionally rich sources of the protective phytochemicals and the darker the colour the higher
the ORAC score and their anti-oxidant protective properties. Strawberries have the additional benefit of helping to
relieve the inflammation of inflammatory joint disease.
10 medium strawberries
2 kiwi fruit
2 passion fruit
150 g blueberries
Kiwi fruits are uniquely rich in both vitamin C and vitamin E, both protective nutrients, and strawberries have an amazing
ability to increase the body’s elimination of uric acid, a substance that is highly irritating to inflamed joints in gout and
arthritis. Second only to prunes, blueberries are weight for weight the next richest of protective anti-oxidants.
Cranberries are an amazing fruit and were probably the reason that the early Pilgrims survived in America. Used by Native
Americans for centuries as both food and medicine they were introduced to the first settlers as the way of avoiding
scurvy. They're not the sweetest of fruits but combining them with strawberries and orange juice makes this a very
450g / 1lb cranberries (thawed if previously frozen)
100ml freshly squeezed orange juice
Cranberries are an extremely rich source of vitamin C but they have other even more important properties. They contain
natural substances that prevent bacteria from attaching themselves to the walls of the bladder and urinary tract, which
makes them both a treatment and a powerful preventer of cystitis and other recurring urinary infections.
Power needs movement and if your mobility is restricted by painful joints this strange sounding mixture of fruits and
vegetables really will help to ease the pain, improve mobility and allow you to utilise your body's innate energy.
4 carrots, topped & tailed
2 ripe tomatoes
small handful parsley, leaves and stalks
4 leaves kale, including stems
As well as the normal nutritional content that you'd expect like betacarotene and vitamin C, the strawberries help
reduce joint inflammation, the phytochemicals in kale are both protective and anti-inflammatory, and the parsley is a
gentle diuretic which helps increase the excretion of joint-damaging uric acid.
Figs come very high up the list of vitality foods. As Adam and Eve used fig leaves to cover their modesty, they must
have eaten the figs and I've never understood why they bothered with the apple! For many the fig is a sacred tree and
the very earliest of Olympians were fed masses of fresh figs for vitality, strength and stamina. Juiced together with the
other fruit this is a fabulous tasting drink with maximum vitality rating.
450g / 1 lb strawberries
200g / 7oz blueberries
2 ripe figs
half a lemon
As well as containing a natural anti-cancer agent, healing enzymes and a chemical which improves digestion, figs are an
excellent source of iron, potassium, betacarotene and energy. Strawberries and blueberries are also highly protective
against many diseases and thanks to their high fructose content, a valuable source of sustainable energy and vitality.
