Sinus infections are a nasty business. Aside from the obvious mucus, they sap our energy, rob us of our sense of taste and smell, and can make it hard to get through the day. Juicing for sinus infection is a good way to get them out of your head, literally. This recipe is a great place to begin.
The Juice: Sinus Saviour
Makes 24 fl oz
1 Large Mango
1/8 c Horseradish Root
Peel (optional) and pit the mango.
Peel the oranges.
Scrub the carrots and horseradish.
Run the ingredients through your juicer and enjoy!!!
Juicer Test Kitchen Insider Tip: I use the Pelamatic Orange Peeler Pro to quickly peel everything from oranges to pomegranates. It’s super easy to use and saves me a ton of time.
The Details: Clear Your Head
Mangoes possess over a dozen polyphenols that remove free radicals from our bodies. These antioxidants help boost our immune system. Notable are vitamins A and C. Vitamin A acts as an anti-inflammatory, possibly helping reduce sinus pressure, while Vitamin C helps to boost our white blood cell count.
Oranges are known for their high vitamin C content, which works to fight infection by boosting those all-important white blood cells. They’re also full of other antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds, like flavonoids, that also support the immune system‘s fight against sinus infection.
Carrots, too, are a significant source of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds, particularly carotenoids and vitamins A and C. Their vitamin B6 content is also a potential weapon against sinus infection, as it is key to optimal immune responsiveness, and its deficiency is linked to a weakened immune system.
The isothiocyanates in horseradish are linked to bacteria reduction in the mouth, which can accompany a sinus infection. There is also evidence that this root helps alleviate sinus infection and improve respiratory symptoms.

The Juicer: PURE Juicer
I made the Sinus Saviour using the PURE Juicer. This juicer is number one in juice yield!
The PURE Juicer leads the pack in its ability to extract juice while preserving the most nutrients. This machine’s unique 2-stage process and 2.5-ton press yield 30-50% more juice than the competition. A cost-saving factor that pays for itself every time you use it.
I love that you can do much more than juice on the PURE Juicer: make sorbets, smoothie bowls, nut milk, nice cream, baby food, cauliflower rice, and even grind coffee! It’s a gorgeous machine made of top-quality, food-grade stainless steel and backed by a whopping 12-year warranty.
I highly recommend the PURE Juicer for any serious home juicer or light commercial user. It’s a powerful machine that delivers the best juice yield in its class.
