During an injury or infection, inflammation is an important part of the body’s immune response system. But when it becomes chronic, it can lead to many health issues like cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, and type-2 diabetes. We can help counter those effects through diet and lifestyle choices, and a great way to begin is with this super anti-inflammatory juice!

The Juice: POP Pourover

Makes 40 fl oz

Fight back with this Super Anti-Inflammatory Juice! It's a tasty way to help your body heal itself.

1. Start with the Green Juice Cubes

Ingredients – Juice Cubes

1 Bunch Spinach

5 Stalks Celery

Directions – Juice Cubes

Rinse and pat dry the spinach.

Scrub the celery stalks.

Run both through your juicer and pour into ice cube molds.

Freeze and set aside.

Juicer Test Kitchen Insider Tip: Making ice cubes from fresh juice is a good way to keep things cool and add some extra zing! In this recipe, I use my favorite green juice cube recipe. But you can do it with nearly anything!

Try using lemon or lime juice cubes with low-acidity mono-juices (like grape or watermelon) to give it some zing. Another idea is to make berry juice cubes and add them to orange or pineapple-based recipes, giving them a mocktail feel. The sky’s the limit, so experiment to find your favorites!

2. Make the Fresh Juice

Ingredients – Juice Cubes

1/2 Pineapple

1 Pomegranate

Directions – Juice Cubes

Decrown and peel (optional) the pineapple.

Peel the pomegranate.

Run ingredients through your juicer.

Fill glasses with several green juice cubes.

Pour the main juice over the cubes and enjoy!!!

The Pelamatic Orange Peeler Pro is my go-to peeler for everything from pomegranates to citrus. It saves me TONS of time and is simple to use. I absolutely love it!

The Details: Cut Chronic Inflammation!

The primary anti-inflammatory component in pineapple is the enzyme bromelain. It is believed to be responsible for triggering our bodies to reduce swelling and fight pain. It is used in treating injuries and is thought to counter osteoarthritis symptoms.

Vitamin C in oranges is thought to counter chronic inflammation and reduce oxidative stress. Elevated inflammation markers, such as interleukin-6 (IL-6) and C-reactive protein (CRP), are associated with health conditions like certain cancers and heart disease. Drinking fresh OJ has been found to reduce these markers, which could possibly help prevent inflammatory-related disease.

Punicalagin, a type of phenolic compound called an ellagitannin, found in pomegranates may also help reduce certain inflammatory markers when ingesting fresh pomegranate juice.

Green leafy vegetables like spinach are known powerhouses against inflammation thanks to their elevated levels of vitamin K. Celery, too, is packed with anti-inflammatory compounds that may help counter chronic inflammation and help prevent disease.
