Juicer Recommendations  

 

Breville Juice Fountain Elite 1000 Watt Juice Extractor
Great citrus juicer and juicer in general.

It’s “Joe Cross approved,”

and one we use for our cranberry-lemonade juice and other fruits & veggies (especially when we’re in a big hurry). Because we juice every day, we use this one in addition to our Green Power masticating juicer. For old school hand juciing, the Zulay hand squeezer is awesome. For more Eden's Juicer Picks, visit here

  • 1000-watt juicer with 2 speed controls, high (13,000 RPM) and low (6,500 RPM)

  • Circular 3-inch feed tube accommodates whole fruits and vegetables. 

  • 1.1 quarts Juice Jug capacity, 3.2 quarts Pulp Container capacity book, dishwasher-safe parts

  • Locking arm bolts move up to 1/4 in all directions to ensure a snug fit in the locking arm

1 cup organic cranberry juice, NOT from concentrate – There’s a big difference here, so be mindful of the label. – If cranberry juice NOT from concentrate, isn’t available, you can use cranberry juice from concentrate which requires you to use the entire quart. Just be certain there are no other added ingredients. We like to use Lakewood Organic Cranberry because it’s readily available in our area and Lakewood Juice is a company with social and environmental integrity.

 

1 -3 T. Liquid stevia, or to taste – Stevia has zero calories and does not affect blood sugar. However, stevia products are not created equal. Our local grocery stores carry 4 different brands and they not only taste bad, they’re replete with harmful ingredients. Your stevia should be organic and have only three ingredients: water, stevia and alcohol as a preservative. Our favorite is Now Foods Better Stevia. It’s a great price with excellent flavor. You Nature’s Way fans will like this one.

 

A touch of Liquid Cayenne, to taste – Great immune booster and metabolism stimulant. Go easy with the cayenne, this stuff has a fiery bite!

 

Pure water – Preferably spring or filtered water Avoid tap water, you can’t get your immune system healthy if you’re killing your stomach’s good bacteria – over 70% of the immune system is in the gut.

Preparation:

 

Pour lemon juice and cranberry concentrate into a gallon jar. Add enough water to fill the jar. Stir in stevia. Chill and enjoy. Drink your lemonade with the pure joy of knowing you’re getting a healthy drink that will nourish and revitalize your body!

 

Science Confirms Health Benefits of Lemons & Cranberries

 

Cranberries

 

National Institutes of Health.gov in the publication Herbal Medicine: Biomolecular and Clinical Aspects, include human studies relevant to heart disease and diabetes, further confirming cranberry’s potent phytonutrient power and their significance in preventive health and healing various health problems.

 

Growing evidence points to many potential pharmacological activities for cranberry and cranberry juice. Due to its high content of flavonoids and phenolic acids, cranberry ranks highly among fruits in both antioxidant quality and quantity (Vinson et al. 2001). In fact, cranberry has the highest level of fw polyphenols among a group of 22 fruits studied. These antioxidant properties are likely to contribute to cranberry’s disease-fighting ability.

 

Cranberry compounds can cause an improvement in antioxidant status, which might be beneficial with respect to chronic diseases. The potential cardiovascular benefits…

Cranberry juice is commonly used to prevent urinary tract infections.

 

Recent research has shown cranberry’s plant medicine acts as a barrier to bacteria that may attach itself to the urinary tract lining, according to whfoods.org, a non-profit foundation. The foundation also recommends all persons taking the drug warfarin consult with their healthcare provider before incorporating them into their diet.

Lemons

 

Similar to cranberries, lemons contain unique phytonutrients that make them a powerhouse in plant healing and disease prevention. They’re an excellent source of Vitamin C, which is one of

the most crucial antioxidants in nature. Unlike most animals, the human body cannot manufacture Vitamin C. Vitamin C is one of many known antioxidants and it prevents free radicals (think of them as bad scavenger molecules) from damaging the cells, thereby preventing inflammation or painful swelling in the body. Reducing inflammation with the use of Vitamin C has been shown to be helpful in symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, according to whfoods.org.

Vitamin C deficiency has been proven to cause heart disease, contribute to cancers and other chronic illnesses such as diabetes. At the prestigious Dr. Rath Research Institute, Dr. Rath’s discovery reveals that the development of atherosclerotic deposits in the arteries of the heart is triggered by a long-term deficiency of Vitamin C… Dr. Rath’s scientific discoveries are well known in the preventive healthcare community. He has well-documented cases of healing heart disease, diabetes, and cancers. Please peruse his invaluable website for more information.

 

Natural News mentions a study published in Alternative Medicine Review that found the beneficial compound d-limonene in lemons to be an excellent cholesterol dissolving agent for cholesterol-containing gallstones. And for the relief of heartburn, including well-established chemopreventive activity against many types of cancers.
