Green juice is packed with nutrition and vitality-bolstering properties. While greens are great on their own, combining them with other ingredients allows them to work in synergy for a host of different health goals. For this recipe, kale, parsley, and pineapple take center stage, resulting in a green juice for gut health that tastes as great as it is good for you.

Why Choose Juicing for Gut Health?
Juicing, in general, provides a plethora of health-supporting benefits. Here are just a few (1):
- Promote Restoration and Healing
- Fight Inflammation

Green Juice Benefits
As you can see, drinking fresh juice regularly may really help your gut get back on track. The benefits of green juices are tied to all those listed above and provide key ingredients that are shown to support gut health. Here’s more about the ingredients in this recipe and how they may help:
Pineapple contains bromelain, an enzyme that helps break down food, particularly protein (3). This can reduce gas, constipation, and bloating while allowing our body to focus on healing. Bromelain has also been shown to have antibacterial properties that may prevent harmful bacteria growth like E. coli and reduce digestive tract inflammation (4). It has also been shown to inhibit the growth of colorectal cancer cells (5).
Kale and parsley are loaded with sulfoquinovose, a sulfur-containing sugar that is incredibly advantageous to beneficial gut bacteria (8). Both are rich in chlorophyll, vitamins K and C, and the mineral magnesium. These vitamins and minerals are also great for the gut (9, 10, 11)!
Great Juicer for Greens
I made this juice on the Kuvings CS700 to see how well it does with greens. It handled them like a champ!
Whenever I use the Kuvings CS700, the pulp is nice and dry, with low foam and little pulp in the juice. Minimal chopping is required, thanks to the large 3.5” feed chute, making adding ingredients super fast and easy.
I love its stainless steel juicing bowl and base as well as its motor that’s designed to run up to 24 hours at a time. This makes the CS700 a real workhorse! Add the NSF commercial certification, and you have an excellent juicer, especially if you are making tons of juice or selling your juice as a business. So, if you’re ready to level up your juicing game, consider the Kuvings CS700!
