Simply go online or speak with a health care professional to find out exactly what vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are directly related to your health problem.

Select The Right CombinationsRecipes for Juicing & Smoothies
Selecting the right ingredients for your recipe is key. Particular fruits and vegetables are known for their specific vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. As an example, bananas are known for their high content of potassium and oranges contain a significant amount of vitamin C. By understanding the unique nutrient content of particular fruits and vegetables, you can select and begin to experiment with those that most strongly address your problem.
Most importantly, buy organically grown produce. Recent research has found that organic produce contains more of the nurients that fight disease. And organic contains less chemical residue from pesticides. Even if you rinse or even wash your produce, remember that rinsing and washing remove bacteria but not the chemicals. The greater the quality of the ingredients which you purchase, the more healthy your recipes for juicing and smoothies. Locally-grown organic fruits and vegetables are often the highest quality. Better yet are the fruits and veggies that you grow in your own back yard!
