Watermelon Surprise

This juice is packed full of Antioxidants!  All 5 ingredients have high amounts of vitamins and minerals, which we all know cancer patients need.  Watermelon contains lycopene which is one of the best antioxidants to fight against cancer. Watermelon is also great for hydration due to the fact its 92% water and full of electrolytes!  Watermelon helps alkaline your body to keep healthy Ph levels.  It also helps with muscle fatigue, great before and after workouts!  So, put down your junkerades and juice some watermelon instead!

The ginger, has Gingerol, which acts like a highly potent antioxidant, the more you can handle the better.  Having an upset stomach?  Ginger is known for settling nausea and soothes the stomach.   Although if you have weight issues or diabetic be careful with your ginger intake because it does contain high amounts of sugars.  Cancer patients who need to gain weight, ginger will help you fight cancer and gain weight at the same time!  So double up if you can do it!

Celery is great for cancer patients too, containing important vitamins like, vitamin C, A,D,E,K,B6,B12, thiamin, riboflavin, folic acid, plus fiber.  Celery also contains important minerals like, calcium, sodium, copper, magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium.  Coumarins in celery increases white blood cells which helps delay and fights off cancer.  Celery also helps aids in lowering your blood pressure, therefore helping lower your cholesterol.

Limes are rich in Vitamin C, plus contains fiber.  Limes also contains important minerals, calcium, iron, potassium, copper, magnesium and phosphorous, which are the vitamins and minerals that help fight against cancer. Having a fever?  The high vitamin C Limes have, help in reducing fevers.  Choosing citrus fruits in juices is another great way to add in more nutrients, you can mix and match between lemon and limes.

Granny Smith Apple (green apple) contains lots of antioxidants which help fight against cancer.   I choose Green Apple for the sweet and sour effect, plus it has a low amount of sugar compared to other apples.  If you don’t want the sweet and sour effect you can always use Pink Lady’s for they have the lowest amount of sugar out of all the apples without the sour effect.
