Good Mouthkeeping

6 radishes with leaves
1 six inch leek
4 tomatoes
1 spring onion
4 carrots

Optional: Worcester sauce & fresh ground black pepper to taste

Slice the leek lengthways, cut tomatoes to fit your juicer, top and tail the carrots. Alternate tomato, leek and spring onion with the harder radishes and carrots.

More people lose their teeth through gum disease than tooth decay. Naturally, there’s no substitute for proper mouth-keeping 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.

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.


2 small heads purple sprouting broccoli, with leaves and stalks
3 large chard leaves, with stalks
4 carrots, topped & tailed
2 apples, quartered
1 small red pepper, deseeded & quartered
handful watercress, with stalks

This juice is not VERY rich in calcium but provides a treasure trove of other micro-nutrients which are vital for the formation of healthy bones. Added to the extra vitamin D you get from sun on your skin, this ensures you absorb as much bone building stuff as you possibly can.

Super rich in vitamins A, C, E, B6, folic acid, potassium, magnesium. Contains vitamin K, calcium, boron, some B vitamins and iron. Just consuming large quantities of calcium on its own is not the answer to life long strong and healthy bones. It’s vital to include the trace minerals and vitamins which are essential to this complex process, and this juice has an abundance of them all.
The Exerciser

1 large parsnip
2 large carrots
2 pears
4 tangerines

Peel tangerines before juicing.

If you’re putting off exercise because you just can’t work up enough enthusiasm, this is the juice for you. Perfect before a round of golf, a game of tennis, an evening of ten-pin bowling, a session in the gym, a cycle ride or even a long brisk walk.

The slow release energy from the parsnip and carrots, the instant fruit sugars in the tangerines, and the sustaining benefits of the apple, will certainly get you on your mark and raring to go.

This juice is super rich in vitamin C, beta-carotene and instant energy, rich in potassium, phosphorus, sulphur and silicon. It also contains vitamin E and some B vitamins.

The complex starches in the parsley and carrots break down slowly, giving gradual energy release, which is ideal for sporting activities. This juice will give you an instant lift and get you in the right frame of mind and body to enjoy your activities.
