Fruit and vegetable juices. When was the last time you had a fruit or vegetable juice drink? These life giving juices can give you an instant boost and taken over a week or two can have a medicinal effect all on their own.
• Carrot juice is high in beta-carotene and fibre. Sweet, gentle and cleansing carrot juice can be great for the skin and eyesight.
• Beetroot, lemon and spinach juice lowers blood sugar, helps the liver to function (removing toxins) and soothes sore throats.
• Apple and mint (a dash) juice aids digestion, reflux and loose bowels. Apple pectin (apple fibre) also lowers cholesterol.
• Orange and mandarin juice is high in vitamin C. Important if you are feeling the ravages of winter and late nights. If you're keen, throw some brewers yeast and molasses in there for B vitamins and iron.
