1. Bloat Away Juice

That’s right! Bloat away! Bloating is a real problem for many people and can be extremely uncomfortable. The ingredients in this juice can really help. Pineapple has helpful digestive enzymes, but the secret to this juice is the fennel and ginger. They combine to build up good prebiotic gut bacteria, which helps the gut deal with food more efficiently and therefore reduces bloating.

Ingredients

  • ½ small pineapple, rind removed
  • ½ fennel bulb
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 2- to 4-inch piece of fresh ginger (you may need to work up to higher amounts of ginger — it can be quite strong)

Preparation

Pass all the ingredients through the juicer.

2. Crystal Clear

Rosemary is well-known for helping your memory and concentration. The sage will help balance your hormones, especially if you are at the start of menopause, as it can really help with hot flashes. The combination of these herbs will help the brain fog clear, and leave you feeling like you can take on the world!

This juice will definitely wake you up. The lemon gets the liver going, helping it to produce digestive juices that boost the detox pathways.

  • 1 apple
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1 pear
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1–2 teaspoons ground turmeric (start with ½ tsp and build the amount up)
