Beet, Spinach and Carrot Juice – my energy drink

Beet, Spinach, and Carrot Juice have been my go-to energy drink for many years. I would have it for breakfast, lunch, and even as a snack. It does not satisfy my hunger, but it refuels my system when needed. The best part about this drink is the “no sugar”; only natural sugars from the ingredients.

A healthy diet usually starts with fresh fruits and fresh vegetables that are full of vitamins. Colorful vegetables are generally a good idea to consume as well as a variety of colorful fruits. The more variety you consume, the better it is.

Let’s go over the benefits of consuming beet, carrot, spinach, ginger and celery.

Veggies for Beet Carrots and Spinach Juice.

Beets contain vitamins A, B, C, and E, and minerals such as iron, manganese, phosphorous, magnesium, potassium, silicon, and sodium. Beetroot is considered to be an excellent purifier and cleanser of the blood and good for digestive problems such as constipation. Because beetroot is a very powerful vegetable it is advised to consume in small quantities and to mix with other fruit or vegetable juice because it can lead to negative reactions within the body. It is also effective at cleaning out the liver, kidneys, and arteries.

Carrot juice, an excellent tonic contains vitamins A, B, C, D, E, G, and K. Carrot juice boosts the immune system and is effective at preventing many eye problems. Carrots also contain Calcium, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, and sulfur. It helps protect the body against diseases; it is good for digestive problems and an excellent remedy for many ailments such as anemia, skin disorders, liver problems, and ulcers. Carrots are easily digested and may be consumed in large quantities. A glass of carrot juice daily is one of the healthiest ways to start your day as per several doctors and nutritionists.

Spinach, a leafy vegetable with more iron than any other vegetable, contains vitamins A, B, C, and K. Spinach is also a body cleanser, with minerals such as calcium, iodine, iron, phosphorous, and potassium. It is often recommended to fight anemia, depression, and fatigue. Because it is a powerful leafy vegetable, it is recommended to be consumed in moderation.

Celery, a low-calorie food, is thought to be beneficial for the digestive tract and cardiovascular system. Possible benefits of celery are lowering blood pressure, reducing the risk of cancer, and preventing age-related degeneration of vision. Celery is a very rich source of antioxidants. It contains phenolic acids, flavonols, dihydrostilbenoids, flavones, furanocoumarins, and phytosterols as well as vitamins and minerals such as vitamin K and also contains folate, vitamin A, potassium, and vitamin C.

Ginger is commonly used to treat various types of “stomach problems,” including motion sickness, morning sickness, colic, upset stomach, gas, diarrhea, nausea caused by cancer treatment, nausea and vomiting after surgery, as well as loss of appetite.

There are many recipes for juicing and for energy drinks. Most of them recommend adding ginger for taste and for more added benefits. An energy drink should be made with fresh fruits and vegetables to get the full health benefits.

There are risks and precautions with all vegetables and therefore one should learn about the potential of allergic reactions. I would also advise you to always check with your doctor before making any changes to your diet. Knowing your body is a good start for a healthy path.

    1. Hello Tabathia. I would suggest up to 2 days refrigerated. You also don’t want to drink too much of it as with all types of fresh vegetable juices. Always drink these types of juices with moderation. Thanks for stopping by!
