Made with the goodness of turmeric, ginger, carrots and orange, this 4-ingredient juice can help you detox and may also help you in shedding extra kilos. The key ingredient in this juice is turmeric, which is known to have anti-inflammatory properties. According to the book, 'Healing Foods' by DK Publishing House, "Turmeric contains potent volatile oils with anti-inflammatory properties and, perhaps most importantly, curcumin, which gives it its vibrant colour. Curcumin has a medicinal effect comparable to drugs, such as hydrocortisone and phenylbutazone, and can be used to provide relief from rheumatoid arthritis, treat inflammatory bowel disease, protect against diabetes, ad avoid heart disease and stroke by preventing the build-up of plaque in the arteries." Just bring together all the ingredients mentioned below and prepare a juice out of them.
Here's How You Can Make This Juice To Detox Your Body:
Carrots - 3 medium-sized
Fresh Turmeric - 2-3 cms
Orange - 2 medium-sized
Ginger - 1 cm
To begin with, peel the skin of turmeric and ginger root and roughly chop the two roots.
Next, wash and peel the carrots and add them to a blender along with orange slices, turmeric and ginger bits.
Blend well till a smooth juice-like consistency is attained. You can strain the pulp using a strainer but you may have the juice along with the pulp as well to reap the benefits out of its fibre content.
Note: To add a little tang, you can add in lemon juice while blending the ingredients together.
So give your regular diet a healthy spin by adding this juice to your weight loss diet. However, we recommend you to consult your nutritionist before making any major changes in your diet, especially if you are looking to lose weight in a healthy and efficient manner.
