Which juices are best for energy?

Feeling frazzled? Are you wondering which juices are best for energy?  If you’re feeling sluggish, the change of season is an excellent time for a fresh start. A juice cleanse could provide just the energy boost you need. Beetroot juice, carrot juice and most juices packed with vegetables can help increase your energy levels.

How does juice help with energy levels?

Juices containing a blend of organic vegetables and fruit are a great way to quickly add more vitamins and nutrients to your diet. Nature provides all the nutrients we need in wonderful vegetables and fruit, but we don’t always consume as many as we should. In fact, the Health Survey for England discovered that only 28% of adults eat the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables daily. Juice is a good way to pack in the nutrients and minerals your body craves in one quick hit. If you want to drink juice for energy, it’s best to pick one that includes mainly vegetables and, therefore, won’t spike your blood sugar with added refined sugars. 

There are lots of vegetables and fruits that work well for juicing and will give you an energy boost. It’s always a good idea to use vegetables and fruit in season. In the autumn, there is a huge range of delicious fruit and vegetables in season that you can use for juicing, including beetroot, broccoli, carrots, apples, pears, celery, spinach, kale, lettuce, cucumber and more. Here’s a list from the Association of UK Dieticians. Here are some of the energy benefits popular juicing ingredients bring:

Apples – the juice of apples supports hydration, as they have a high content of water. Staying hydrated helps maintain energy levels. In addition, they are packed with antioxidants and polyphenols, which have beneficial anti-inflammatory effects

Beets – Beetroot has naturally occurring nitrates. Your body converts these nitrates into nitrites which raise nitric oxide levels. This process helps to decrease blood pressure and increase blood flow. Increasing the flow of oxygen through your body can help you feel more active and energetic, and research is available to prove it.

Carrots – Carrots are rich in vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Having enough of these vitamins in your diet helps to keep your immune system healthy. Carrots are also high in iron, and increasing iron intake may help prevent fatigue if your iron stores are low. 

Cucumber – Cucumber water is a good source of potassium, and potassium is key to muscle energy and recovery. 

Kale – fresh kale juice is packed with nutrients, including B vitamins, vitamin K and magnesium. Magnesium is an essential mineral for energy production, and B vitamins help the body convert the food you eat into glucose, which gives you energy.

Orange – fresh orange juice is naturally high in vital nutrients such as vitamin C and potassium. It’s also a good source of antioxidants like flavonoids. Vitamin C helps prop up your immune system, and what’s more, those lacking in Vitamin C report feeling fatigued. So it’s important to keep your store topped up regularly.. 

Spinach – Spinach has been hailed as a superfood that can help restore energy. Spinach is rich in iron which supports the production of red blood cells, which helps transport oxygen around the body and increase energy production.
