From the Kitchen @ Hippocrates Health Institute – The best natural energy
People have consumed juices since the beginning of modern civilization. Fresh, raw juices are the best way to acquire needed nutrients in their most digestible form. Energy, strength, cleansing, healing, hydration, and the building and maintenance of the electrolyte system—as well as the renal (kidney) and respiratory systems, the two fluid-based systems of the body—are the main benefits of the consumption of these enzyme-rich liquids.
Ingredients/produce recommended to use in your juices and salads for their nutritional benefits.

Celery – Facilitates dermal detoxification and circulation. Reduces uric acid. Improves electrolyte function. Detoxifies the system of the effects of nicotine and caffeine. Promotes dermal flexibility. Provides organic sodium.
Daikon radish – Acts as a blood thinner. Maintains electromagnetic functioning of the solar plexus.
Dandelion – Creates red blood cells. Strengthens gums and teeth. Assists healthy bone development (skeletal and dental).
Endive – Improves vision and reduces the potential for and the severity of cataracts. Creates strong ventricular tissue.
Horseradish – Consumed in small amounts, removes excess mucous. Diuretic. Helps to counteract colds and flu.
Iris Flower – Builds ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. Strengthens joints and improves membrane development.
Jerusalem Artichoke – Stabilizes blood sugar disorders. Generates energy.
Lily Flower – Builds capillaries. Strengthens vision and hearing. Assists the H cell development of the immune system.
Leek – Anticarcinogenic and antimutagenic. Prevents ulcers and inhibits parasites.
Lettuce – A subtle aphrodisiac and mood enhancer. Helps restore hair and skin.
Nasturtium – Builds the immune system, fighter cells, and eosinophils. Purifies the lymphatic system and the bloodstream.
Parsley – Minimizes the pain of menstrual cramps. Fights coronary disease, cataracts, conjunctivitis, and glaucoma. Improves vision, cardiovascular functioning, and blood count.
Pepper (ripe red, yellow, purple) – Reduces bloating, flatulence, colitis, and colic. Rich in vitamin C. Strengthens metabolism, specifically of the heart, and reduces the risk of microbial infection.
Potato (white) – High mineral content, especially potassium, assists renal and cardiovascular function. Effective against arthritic and osteoporotic conditions.
Sauerkraut (raw) – Improves dermal elasticity and appearance. Cleanses and builds the digestive organs. Enhances the probiotics in the gastrointestinal tract, which in turn strengthen immune cells.
Sorrel – Enhances healthy skeletal and dermal development. Creates greater bone density in the lower extremities.
Spinach – Prevents anemia, convulsions, neuronal disorders, and adrenal dysfunction. Builds red blood cells to cleanse the liver, thereby improving immune function.
String bean (green, purple, yellow) – Regulates blood sugar (in both diabetes and hypoglycemia) by insulin stimulation. Develops proteinase (protein-digesting enzymes).
Tomato – Contains minimal amounts of lycopene. Although it is effective in the reduction of prostate, breast, and colon cancers, and in combating hepatitis A, B, and C, it is less effective than tomato seed sprout juice. Detoxifies the liver and gall bladder.
Turnip Greens – Consumed in small quantities, builds bones, facilitates digestion, prevents colon polyps and hemorrhoids.
Violet Flower – Consumed in small quantities, stimulates the spleen and assists in the production of healthy red blood cells, fingernails, and toenails.
Watercress – Consumed in small amounts, increases hemoglobin to prevent anemia and chronic low blood pressure. Strengthens joints, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. Helps to reduce tumors by improving circulation.
