Enhanced brain health easily tops the list of the major benefits to be derived from juicing. This is because the body is intrinsically connected to the brain. As such, irrespective of how much people focus on their physical fitness, they can never achieve maximum health until they boost their mental wellbeing. The brain is, however, a complex organ that requires precise diets to keep it fully functional. Instead of gobbling down a variety of fruits and vegetables in a bid to stay mentally healthy, people can now rely on juicing, which offers a simpler method of compressing all the available nutrients into a few glasses of juice.

The process of making juice cannot be accomplished without a juicer, and people who don’t have one should be sure to read this expert guide before making their purchase of a juicer and for a good reason. By reading the guide, potential juicer buyers can find a product that is perfectly suited for their needs. Below are some fresh juice recipes that can assist a person’s mental health.photo provided by author

Green Juice

This juice is comprised of a medium apple, spinach, celery, kale, and lemon. These ingredients are combined into a juicer and broken down into a smooth, healthy solution. For instance, lemon is not only perfect for people with cardiovascular problems, but it also reduces mental depression and stress. Spinach is rich in manganese, which is also known as a vasodilator. This means that it has the potential to induce the enlargement of veins and thus enhance the transportation of blood to vital organs such as the brain. Also, manganese facilitates the absorption of fatty acids that are needed for the efficient function of the nervous system.

Similarly, the mineral salts found in celery are instrumental in the emission of the brains neurotransmitter chemicals that support the neuron functions. Kale contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidants that come in handy in detoxifying the brain. Apples are also believed to provide nutrients that protect the brain against memory loss.

Blackberry Pop

This juice is comprised of blackberry, kiwifruit, pear, pineapple, and peppermint. Consuming a delicious blackberry juice is an easy way of adding loads of antioxidants into the human body. Blackberries contain anthocyanins that enhance a variety of brain functions including memory and attention. They also help to get rid of damaged brain cells that could otherwise cause mental decline and severe issues, such as dementia, as well as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.

Furthermore, anthocyanins are known to combat oxidative stress and the effects of aging. Peppermint boasts the capacity to fight anxiety and depression while kiwifruit is popular for its antioxidants and sleep-inducing properties. On the other hand, pineapple contains nutrients such as folate, potassium, and antioxidants that provide neurological benefits. Lastly, pears provide antioxidant properties that typically combat free radicals.

Red Cabbage Juice

Ginger root, a medium apple, red cabbage, medium carrot, spinach, and lemon are the essential ingredients required for creating this type of juice. Red cabbage contains folic acid that plays a crucial role in combating depression. It is also a great source of vitamins C and K, which are not only excellent at alleviating depression but also in improving mental function and concentration. These vitamins also come in handy in preventing nerve damage and enhancing defense against dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Not only does carrot improve the flavor in the red cabbage juice but it also provides extra nutrients that are of great benefit to the brain. For example, some of its vital nutrients are responsible for reducing memory loss and age-related inflammation associated with the brain.

Beets and Pineapple Juice

To make this juice, a person requires beetroot, a few leaves of red cabbage, medium carrots, lemon, pineapple, spinach, and orange. Beetroots contain betaine, which is a natural compound used to combat depression. It also contains tryptophan that manipulates the mind to relax thus creating a sense of well-being. This juice has the power to prevent mood swings, elevate energy levels and alleviate depression.

Pomegranate and Orange Juice

This juice is created with a combination of ripe pomegranates, green apple, oranges, and lime. It essentially contains polyphenols and antioxidants that play a crucial role in preventing neurodegenerative disease. The antioxidants provided by this nutritious blend also serve to improve brain functions and lead to enhanced memory. Pomegranates also contain anti-inflammatory properties and anti-aging effects. Oranges, on the other hand, contain folate that enhances cognitive function and potassium that helps with increasing the blood flow to the brain. The ultimate consequence is enhanced concentration and neural activity.

For many years, juicing has been widely utilized by people who are looking to lose weight. However, as more people learn that it provides pure forms of minerals and vitamins that help to improve the overall health and wellbeing of their body and brain, juicing has gained much more popularity. Blends comprised of fresh fruits and vegetables go a long way in improving the overall health of the brain by enhancing its functions and reduces the chances of developing severe ailments.
