Juice Recipes to Help Boost Your Metabolism
These juices are a delicious mixture of fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables, and will boost your metabolism. They will also help clear your mind and improve focus.
Minty Citrus Juice
1 pink grapefruit, peeled
2 oranges, peeled
1 bunch of mint
1 head romaine lettuce
Research has found that the phytochemicals found in grapefruit support weight loss by reducing insulin levels, allowing your body to use the energy in food rather than store it as fat. Regular consumption of grapefruit can also lower LDL cholesterol levels, particularly in people who have issues with high triglycerides. Orange also lowers cholesterol, and aids in preventing cardiovascular ailments. Mint helps mental processes, and the lettuce provides vitamin K—for blood clotting—vitamin C, and folate.
½ lime, peeled
2 whole apples
½ cup pineapple
½ medium cucumber
1 shot of wheatgrass
Pineapple contains compounds like bromelain to help absorption. Wheat grass accelerates digestion, improves mental processing, satisfies cravings, and reduces hunger. It’s a great juice to drink before meals, especially those with less healthy options: you will eat less overall, and what you do eat will be processed more quickly.
Spicy Sweet Green Juice
5 kale leaves
½ cup pineapple
½-in piece of ginger
Pineapple is packed with vitamins and minerals, including thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B-6, folate, pantothenic corrosive, magnesium, manganese, and potassium. It also contributes bromelain, which aids in assimilation and demands less from your body to metabolize it into fuel. The kale in this juice provides a great source of vitamin K, which is crucial for bone and blood health. Kale delivers more iron per calorie than red meat.
The key to a faster, more efficient metabolism is to provide your body with healthy, easy to digest foods that will trigger your body’s natural functions. These juices are a great way to start!
