When I was a little girl, the old saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”, was probably old even then – yet the advice is good. And nowadays, there is study after study that corroborates that saying with scientific proof.
There are many, many benefits to juicing apples. Having that luscious, pulpy, cloudy liquid waiting for you in a cup (or jar) is anticipation at its best. First of all, there is the aroma – and then POW there is a taste that cannot be described. It is heavenly manna – and our picture here shows Amara with her cup of fresh apple juice. She LOVES fresh juice. She can even use ASL and ask us for her favorite juice when she wants it. Smart girl.
During allergy season, allergy inflammation flares up and can create asthma attacks. One son is an asthmatic. What to do?! I was relieved to find out that I had already been doing many things to keep his inflammation down, and I hadn’t even known it. There is quercetin in apples, known to reduce allergy flare ups. Does it replace his inhaler? No, but it seems he needs it less when he’s eating salads and drinking fresh juices.
My other son is allergic to just about every grass and tree on the planet. We give him quercetin and nettle. Believe me, we wouldn’t get through allergy season without these wonderful supplements.
Fresh Apple Juice can be taken: Straight: in small sips, in large gulps; Mixed: in smoothies as the main base, in smoothies as the hint of tang; Frozen: in ice cubes as the cooler in lemonade, in popsicles (the varieties here are endless). Have fun with your Apple Juice – and have a healthy snack!
