So what ingredients do you need for this recipe? Here is your shopping list below. Also look for the complete ingredients list that is needed for your 3 day juice fast.
Cucumbers are mainly composed of water (about 95%). Cucumbers help flush out harmful toxins out of your body. The skin of cucumbers are composed of many important minerals like silica. Silica is critical for maintaining healthy bones, cartilage, and connective tissues.
Parsley is packed with magnesium, calcium, and potassium that are essential for maintaining a healthy body. Parsley is also packed with antioxidants like luteolin. Luteolin prevents the oxidations of cells. Parsley also has beta-carotene and vitamin C. Beta-carotene is an antioxidant which helps prevent diabetes, colon cancer, and heart disease.
Pepper is not only an excellent source of carotenoids, but it’s also a source of over 30 different members of the carotenoid nutrient family. It contain many phytochemicals which are naturally occurring compounds found in plants. Red peppers are nutrient-dense, and one of the richest sources of vitamins A and C. Just a cup a day can provide more than 100% of your daily needs.
Turmeric is one of the most versatile spices. It has almost a sweet
and tangy taste. Turmeric contains antioxidants that fight and neutralize cancer causing free radicals. Turmeric can increase detoxification enzymes which help eliminate toxins. Turmeric also helps increase the liver’s ability to decrease LDL (bad) cholesterol. Turmeric also improves circulation, promotes blood formation, and purifies the blood.
Jalapenos contain a negligible amount of calories, with only 4 calories in one pepper. They also have less than a gram each of protein and fat and just 0.91 gram of carbohydrates. Jalapenos are a rich source of vitamin C that helps prevent damage from free radicals.
The Lime is the sweeter cousin of the lemon. They contain
calcium and folate, two nutrients that are important for post-menopausal women and women of child-bearing age. The limonoid compounds in limes have been shown to prevent cancers of the colon, stomach, and blood. Though the exact mechanism is unknown, scientists have observed that antioxidant limonoids also cause cancer cell death. It is also a natural inhibitor of kidney stones made of crystallized calcium. Go for fresh lime juice squeezed into water, as opposed to commercial limeades, for maximum benefits.
Pink Himalayan Salt
Himalayan salt is made of the same components as table salt but since the crystal structure is larger than refined salt, this salt has LESS sodium per 1/4 t. serving. It packs a hearty 80+ minerals and elements. Himalayan salts are mineral packed crystals that balance electrolytes and regulate water content both inside and outside of cells. It also helps in preventing muscle cramping, aids in proper metabolism functioning, strengthens bones, lowers blood pressure, and improves circulation.
Chia seeds are also popular for weight loss. They help you feel full and help with digestion as well. Chia seeds absorb 10 times their weight in water, forming a bulky gel. They contain Omega-3 Fatty Acids that are essential in decreasing heart disease risks and triglycerides and boost brain power. Since chia seeds form a “chia-like gel” when exposed to liquid, they actually can help hydrate the body and reduce blood pressure.

I know a lot of this week may have been new information to you, and that’s okay. Each week, I strive to give you content that is new and will further help you in your transformation journey. It’s time to invest in yourself! I want you to give The Juice with Drew System a try.
The detoxification process can also take in the form of a juice fast. Here at FitLife.TV, we recommend people to try the Alpha Reset (AR). The Alpha Reset is a 5 Day Juice fast. It is part of the Juice with Drew System. This is the first step in your detoxification process. If you are just starting out with juicing, do not jump right into a juice fast right away. Just try 1 juice per day along with the rest of your nutrition and see how your body responds. If your body responds well to juicing, then ramp up the number of juices per day. These healthy, nutrient-dense juices can replace that coffee you reach for in the morning or that soda in the afternoon. Here are some of our followers that have tried the Alpha Reset!
I have spent years researching everything I could about nutrition, mindset, and wellness, and I developed this system specifically from what I learned. In this system, you will finally eat foods that your body naturally wants you to eat. When this happens, you will find that it is possible to get in incredible shape and start living with a vibrant purpose! I hope you enjoyed this video and learned something that you can pass along to your loved ones. Help spread the word of health and I’ll see you right here, next week.
