10 Best Juices You Can Make to Keep You Energized and Productive

| May 6, 2013 | 6 Comments

Are you looking for more energy during your day? Have you ever tried drinking more juice? We’re not talking about orange juice or apple juice here. In reality there are much better options out there when it comes to having juice with breakfast or at any point during your day instead of coffee, soda or even water. Let us know in the comments how many of the below juices you have tried. Store bought processed juices don’t count!

Carrot Juice

Carrot-Juice

Carrots contain high levels of beta-carotene – an antioxidant that may help oxygenate your blood, brain and body tissues. You will need 5-10 carrots depending on their size for a full glass of juice.

Fruit and Nut Juice

Combine 1 cup of fresh squeezed apple juice with 1 banana, 1 tbsp. of wheat, rice or oat bran and eight to 12 almonds. Blend thoroughly, adding water for desired taste and consistency.

Beetroot Juice

Juice and drink one to two beets, adding fresh apple juice to taste. Beetroot juice is one of the richest dietary sources of antioxidants and nitrates that may improve blood pressure and blood flow throughout the body, including the brain, heart, muscles, and more.

Green Juices

Green Juice

Chlorophyll, the green pigment in plants, helps oxygenate the blood, creating increased brain function and physical energy. Example recipe could be 1 large cucumber, 8 celery stalks, 1 handful kale, 1 handful spinach, 1 handful parsley, 1/4 lemon and 1 piece ginger.

Pomegranate Juice

Pomegranate-Juice

It’s high in sugar and calories, but delivers an abundant dose of antioxidants. These substances appear to protect brain function and may ward off cancer. You will need 1 whole pomegranate and even if the juice is a little tart avoid adding sugar like so many recipes say.

Cranberry Juice

Cranberry juice is packed with vitamin C, which is vital to a healthy immune system. You may want to add some apples in with the cranberries for added flavor.

Blueberry Juice

Take one cup of blueberries and  prepare some daily juice with them. Besides their antioxidant action, blueberries contain a lot of vitamin C, minerals and fibers.

Cherry Juice

cherry-juice

Besides delivering a wealth of antioxidants, cherry juices appear to have anti-inflammatory properties.

Acai Berry Juice

acai berry juice

Acai pulp appears to have a higher concentration of antioxidants than cranberries, blackberries, strawberries, or blueberries. Acai berries are often turned into pulp, made into powder, or turned into concentrated liquid form before being transported. You can usually find most of these things in any health food store.

Red Grape Juice

red-grape-juice

Red grape juice contains potent antioxiodants — flavanoids and resveratrol. The key is that wine and juice are made with the entire grape — seeds, skin, and all.

    I have a smoothie every day and there are some in this article I have never had before. Definitely interested in trying the beet one and the cranberry one. Thanks for the ideas and encouraging healthy living. We only have one body, so we better take care of it!

    But it is still better to eat the fresh.

    Beetroot and carrot juice are my favorite, I have any of these on daily basis, they surely can keep you energized and productive.

    I’d be a bit careful of the Red Grape juice, really high in fructose which if not burnt off right away (one of the hardest to burn off actually) gets stored as fat right away. Maybe a weekend treat?
