- 4 large Navel Oranges
- 1 inch of fresh Ginger root
- Cut or peel off the skins of the oranges (I use a knife to cut off the orange rind and leave parts of the white bits *-bioflavanoid bonus-* on the orange to make it go more quickly).
- Cut off 1 inch of Ginger root (or more — adjust to your taste preference). Note: Keep the peel of the Ginger root on it, unless it is shriveled then you can cut it off and still use the Ginger inside.
- Place 1 orange in juicer, then ginger. Finish off with the remaining oranges to push through any remnant of ginger juice left behind. Sip and enjoy this immunity booster in the AM.
Yields: 14-16 ounces of fresh juice (double, triple, quadruple, etc.)
Health Benefits & Nutrients: Oranges, with their high Vitamin C and bioflavonoid content, are a famous immune booster, but they are also rich in minerals and very cleansing. By juicing them, you benefit from the bioflavonoids in the pith (white skin on oranges) too.
Ginger is an age-old natural remedy. The root of the Ginger plant helps to improve digestion and circulation relieves nausea, bloating, colds, sore throats, and inflammation of any sort.
Vitamin C found in oranges, promotes healthy blood capillaries and gums, and healthy skin and healing. It aids absorption of iron and production of hemoglobin; boosts the body’s defenses against illnesses, helps protect against cancer, heart disease, allergies, infections, colds, stress and even aging.
NOTE: As a general rule, always drink citrus and fruit juices before noon on an empty stomach. Citrus juices are your “cleansers” and can be high in sugar. Your body will burn these sugars the best in the morning, giving you a great burst of energy!
