Cabbage is a hearty staple that is enjoyed by people worldwide. But little do people know that cabbage juice is one of the most potent remedies out there, especially if you suffer from ulcers, a clogged liver, and excess inflammation in the body.
Compounds in cabbage like L-glutamine, S-methylmethionine, glucosinolates and gefarnate protect and heal delicate mucous membranes lining the stomach and digestive tract. The amino acid glutamine has been found to be superior to commercial antacids for treating ulcers, as it helps repair and nourish the gastrointestinal lining.
Glucosinolates in cabbage also get converted into anti-inflammatory isothiocyanates in your body, which help control Helicobacter pylori bacteria inside your stomach which normally contribute to peptic ulcers. These compounds also initiate a series of reactions that reduce inflammation in the body, and provide relief from joint pain, back pain and arthritis.
Compounds in cabbage also reduce the effects of dehydration and headache from liver intoxication. Drinking cabbage juice after a night of drinking will help restore the liver, and also get rid of any toxic compounds.
Making this juice with organic ingredients is best. You can use green or purple cabbage – whatever you have access to!
