Best for Juice

List of Benefits from the Top Fruits and Vegatebles


Antioxidant packed, these are   one of the best fruits for juicing. They help to reduce cholesterol, cleanse   digestive system and help to boost the immune system. They go well with   almost any fruit or vegetable (softening any bitter or strong juice), making   them my favorite base for juices. They are also chock full of nutrients that   help aid in digesting fats.


Pineapples add a great tropical   flavor to juices. They are anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antibacterial.   They help to dissolved blood clots. They also contain a digestive enzyme   called bromelain with is really important for the body to digest protein.


Papaya is at the top of the   list of the best fruits and vegetables when it comes to digestion. It   contains papain, an enzyme that helps to breakdown protein. If you have   digestion problems, try juicing some papaya juice daily, especially after   meals. You don’t need a lot, but adding any type of mint to your papaya juice   will strengthen the properties even more. Papayas also help to replenish   vitamin C in the body, and protects against cancer. Note: Papaya doesn’t   juice well in a juicer, however, it works great for blender drinks and smoothies.


Tomatoes are popular and are at   the top for best fruits and vegetables to juice. They are fantastic for your   health. Tomatoes lower your risk of cancer (especially testicular cancer in   men) and is good for the heart due to its high amount of lycopene. They blend   very well with many vegetables and are pleasant tasting. When cooked, they   become acidic, so if tomato sauce bothers you, don’t assume that juice would   do the same. It’s completely different when it’s raw.


Packed with antioxidants, these   do so much for your general health. They are antiviral and antibacterial.   Berries are good for the blood. Blueberries and blackcurrants help diarrhea   and urinary infections. Raspberries are good for menstrual cramps.   Strawberries have lots of lycopene and help the cardiovascular system. While   berries aren’t the easiest to juice on the best fruits and vegetables list,   they should become a staple in your juicing regimen.


Cabbage is fantastic for the   stomach. If you had or have ulcer problems cabbage is a must for you to juice   daily. It’s a cancer fighter and full of indoles that aid in estrogen balance   and regulating metabolism.  It’s a great detoxifier. While cabbage   doesn’t taste so great alone, it’s flavor can easily be masked by other yummier produce.


Broccoli is part of the   cruciferous family. Loaded with antioxidants, it also has a good amount of vitamin C. If you are concerned about lung, colon or breast cancer, have raw   broccoli a few times a week. If you can’t eat it, juice it so you can’t taste   it. Mix it with some tomato juice. It has chlorophyll, so it helps to regulate insulin and blood sugar.


Celery is great at cleansing   the digestive system of uric acid. So if you have gout issues, definitely   include celery in your diet daily. It’s great for lowering blood pressure   because of it’s high potassium content. If you retain water daily and have   lots of bloating, celery is your #1 go to veggie! It’s diuretic effect is   powerful. If you are starting a detoxifying regimen, be sure to make celery   as a regular base to your juices- its diuretic properties will help to remove   the toxins from your body with ease. There is potassium in the tops so juice   them too. It helps to balance out the sodium in the stalk.


Carrots are surprisingly (and   deliciously) sweet when juiced. Don’t be afraid of them at all. They have too   many good nutrients packed inside to be missed. They have a high beta   carotene content making them great for skin, brain, fighting cancer,   protecting arteries, fighting infections and boosting the immune. Many   doctors believe (as well as studies have shown) that they help to eliminate   putrefactive bacteria in the colon and help to rid of intestinal parasites.   They blend very well with many ingredients, including one of my   favorites….apples. Apple carrot juice is a powerhouse and one of the best   fruits and vegetables drink combos.

Sweet Potatoes

Yes, they can be juiced. They   have an exceptional amount of vitamin, in the form of beta carotene. They are   a good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, fiber, B6, potassium and iron.   Sweet potatoes are anti-inflammatory and really can help people with   arthritis and other types of inflammation.


Cranberries prevent bacteria   from forming in the bladder, prostate and kidneys. It also deodorizes urine.   They contain mannose, which is what helps to keep the entire urinary track   from getting and infection. They also can help prevent kidney stones. They   are antiviral and antibiotic. Because they are so sour, they need to be   combined with either water, or another fruit to be palatable. I like to add   apple or grape juices to the mix.


Parsley has a lot of   chlorophyll and is excellent for the blood. It gives you a spark of energy and   has anti-parasitic properties. It helps with the kidney and gallstones,   cleanses the liver and supports the heart. Many people also say it helps   their arthritis. And one last thing- it helps to deodorize the body as well   as your garlic or onion breath! Add it to any juice, but more generously to   your green juices as you’ll hardly taste it when its mixed with other greens.

Dandelion Greens

Besides for its general leafy   green benefits including chlorophyll, dandelion is specifically good for   cleaning out the kidney, liver, gallbladder, bowel and pancreas. It’s a mild   diuretic, and helps people with anemia, diabetes and hypoglycemia. Because of   these things, it does help many people with acne problems as it helps to   clear elimination blockages in the body. That’s not all- it has a good amount   of calcium, manganese, potassium and iron.


Wheatgrass is one of the finest   greens out there. It restores health to the sick and brings up red blood   counts for a healthy body. It’s high in indoles, which helps to prevent   cancer. It stimulates DNA repair, neutralizes the worst free radicals (called   superoxide) and protects from cancer. It contains over 20 enzymes, including   the enzyme catalase which breaks down harmful hydrogen peroxide in the body   and prevents it from harming cells. Wheatgrass is very nutrient dense, and   includes pro-vitamin A, chlorophyll, potassium, magnesium, among many, many   others. According to several studies, the only nutrient it seems to lack is vitamin   D and B12. People have used wheatgrass to reverse cancer and many other   health issues with success. It is easy to grow or find in markets these days.   Unfortunately not all juicers can juice wheatgrass with ease. Many can, but   if you have a model that cannot you can buy a special wheatgrass juicer. If I   had to put an order to the list on this page, wheatgrass would be number 1 on the list for the best fruits and vegetables to juice- solely for it’s health benefits.

Citrus Fruits

Citrus are one of the most   popular of the best fruits and vegetables to juice. They contain carotenoids,   bioflavonoids and oodles of vitamin C which help to fight cancer. They lower   blood pressure and help to reduce plaque from arteries. Citrus are antiviral,   antibacterial and super yummy. They had a burst of flavor to almost any   juice. You’ll want to make sure your citrus fruits are not picked until ripe as they can be acidic if picked too early.


Full of many important vitamins   and minerals. It does contain oxalic acid which can interfere with the   absorption of calcium in the body, so since there are so many choices for   things to juice, limit this to 2-3 times a week.


It has protein, minerals,   calcium, very good for you.


Many are natural diuretics   which make them powerful cleansers and detoxifiers. They have a high water   content so they are great to re-hydrate your body, especially after a workout.   Cantaloupes are high in beta carotene (the orange gives that away) and all of   them are antiviral and antibacterial.


Rich in vitamin c and have lots   of antioxidants. They help to keep arteries decongested and help conditions   like asthma, bronchitis and the common cold. They also help the hair, nails   and skin because they are high in natural silicones.
