Dr Oz: Juice Cleanse Energy Boost
Dr Oz shared that according to Dr Ginger Southall, the secret to boosting your energy could be in the colors of the rainbow. She claims that The Rainbow Juice Cleanse could just be the secret to finding more energy. Dr Southall started by explaining that she encourages people to juice vegetables, not fruit, because our society is so addicted to sugar. She said there’s nothing wrong with fruit, but constantly drinking fruit juice is no better than drinking a soda. She also explained that by eating and drinking the rainbow, you’re getting all the nutrients you need.
Dr Oz: Rainbow Juice Cleanse Benefits
Reportedly, The Rainbow Juice Cleanse can give you increased energy, weight loss, improved digestion, improved skin, mental clarity, emotional stability, and a taste bud transformation. Almost sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?
Dr Southall explained that you can baby step your way into it by starting with just one juice per day. She said that because people’s taste buds are tainted with coffee, sugar, and salt, it’s easier to ease into it.
Dr Oz: Rainbow Juices
Dr Oz had three women from his audience sit down to try all the juices. You can go in any order you want, but Dr Oz started by looking at the red juice, which was full of lycopene and was great for your heart and for preventing cancer. The juice was made with a combination of tomato and red peppers. Dr Southall added that she adds herbs and spices to the juices so that you’re not just drinking straight veggies.
Next was the orange juice, which was great for boosting immunity. That was made using peppers, carrots, and what looked like butternut squash. The yellow juice was made with peppers and squash and was great for promoting eye health. Next of course was the green juice, made from leafy green, zucchini, and broccoli, and that helps promote healthy cell function. Lastly, to protect the brain and promote good memory, was the purple juice from from cabbage and other purple veggies.
Dr Oz: Juice Add-Ins & Store-Bought Vegetable Juices
The three women tried the juices and said they liked the red and yellow juices. Dr Southall explained that you can add lemon and lime, liquid stevia, parsley, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, ginger, or chia seeds.
If you prefer to just buy store-bought juice rather than make your own, be sure to look for unpasteurized or cold-pressed juices that contain only vegetables, with no fruit or added sugar.
Dr Oz: Blend Vs Juice
Dr Southall said you can blend rather than juice, which could be easier for those just getting started. One example she gave was to combine avocado and carob powder to make a healthy dessert.
