10 Healthy Juicing Combinations for Cleansing and Detoxing

There's an epidemic of unhealthy eating in the United States.
According to the Center for Science in Public Interest, unhealthy eating leads to more than 675,000 deaths every single year.

These deaths are caused by a simple lack of nutrition. When the body doesn't get enough nutrients, you see a spike in serious issues like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer.
And that's not to mention obesity. The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases states that more than two-thirds of American adults are overweight or obese.
If you're worried about your health, then you need to know about juicing. Though it's not a cure-all, juicing is one of the best ways to improve your diet by getting all the nutrients you need.

Top 10 Juicing Ingredient Combinations

Not all juicing ingredients are created equal. Certain fruits and vegetables are much better for juicing than others.
A study in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition claims that apples and pomegranates are two of the best fruits for juicing.
Not only do they contain ample amounts of nutrients, but they've also been shown to reduce blood pressure and cholesterol.

Other powerful fruits and vegetables for juicing include:
  • Spinach
  • Lemon
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Kale
  • Carrots
  • Mint
  • Tomato
  • Pineapple
  • Orange
The key to getting the most benefits from juicing isn't drinking the juice from a single fruit or vegetable. It's combining several ingredients together into one powerful combination.
