Cabbage juice might sound disgusting, but it actually does your body a world of wonders. It is high in an array of different vitamins, minerals and crucial phytonutrients like vitamin C, A, B1, B2, B6, E, and K and minerals like potassium, iron, calcium, iodine, sulphur and phosphorous.
Most importantly, cabbage contains one of the most important cancer-fighting chemicals around. Sulforaphane, isothiocyanate, and Indole-3-carbinole (I3C) are anti-cancer compounds found in cabbage. They increase the detoxification mechanisms in the body, and improve its ability to detoxify and eliminate harmful hormones.
Cabbage is also great for clearing the upper section of your intestine, which improves digestion and makes weight loss as easy as 1-2-3. A lot of the time we are carrying around a lot of excess waste matter in our colons, which leads to larger stomachs and uncomfortable bloated feelings.
It also helps dry up oily, acne-prone skin, too. Internally, sulphur is essential for keratin, a protein substance necessary for healthy hair, skin and nails.
Cabbage juice can be somewhat unpleasant to those not used to it, so this recipe contains an apple and some lemon to help balance the flavour.
