I really like the part of this video where he talks about sugar content in juice.
I see a lot of juice and smoothie recipes and I am thinking, too much sweetness.
Diabetes runs in my family and I really struggled with hypoglycemia as a child, even though I did not have the faintest clue what hypoglycemia was back then.
Super Green Juice Recipe
Carrot, apple, and beet juices can all contain a good amount of sugar.
In juice form, the sugar can enter the bloodstream rapidly and spike the blood sugar in a sensitive person. That is why I like to have a greater percentage of greens in my juice.

Of course the juice needs to taste good, or you just won’t drink it. And any freshly squeezed juice is way better than a candy bar or a soda any day. So strike your own balance. Some people need to start on the sweeter side, until the taste buds can adapt.
My taste buds are well adapted now to good amounts of kale, collards or other dark leafy greens in my juice or vegetable smoothies.
Here are the ingredients for the juice recipe in this video
- romaine lettuce
- papaya, great enzymes, seeds can be anti-parasitic
- green apple, do not include seeds, they contain cyanide
- kale, very nutrient dense, all around great leafy green vegetable
- celery, good alkaline forming choice
- cilantro, good for clearing heavy metals
- top it off with a bit of garlic and ginger
One of my favorite ways to balance my pH is to drink an organic, cleansing herbal tea. It acts as a very gentle colon cleanse and helps to remove toxins from my body.
