For our psychophysical well-being, we can count on an important resource that we often trample on or take for granted, nature.
In its vastness there are, first of all, many plants and flowers that can be used for medicinal purposes.
For example, from certain roots and seeds comes this energizing herbal tea against drowsiness, mental fatigue and joint pain, a panacea for spring.
Always in nature, but with the precious help of man, we find many fruits and vegetables that are essential to our organism.
Both will be the protagonists of today’s article and we will know two seasonal varieties to make an incredible drink to enjoy for breakfast or as a snack.
Red is the color of spring
Our beneficial soda is based on a vegetable and a fruit that are distinguished by their red color.
We start to find them in March but we can also fill them in April and part of May.
The vegetable is rhubarb, whose fleshy stalks are said to be a concentrate of benefits.
First, they would contain two important molecules:
- emodin, capable of stimulating gastrointestinal motility;
- sennosides, which would act as laxatives.
For this it could help in case of constipation, hemorrhoids or anal fissures.
- could help, for example, also with heartburn and kidney failure;
- it would have an antimicrobial action;
- it could reduce blood cholesterol levels.
This vegetable, however, comes with some highly anticipated and delicious fruits, strawberries.
First, such treats would be indicated to prevent cognitive and physical aging and would be useful for promoting cardiovascular health.
Then, they would be rich in vitamin C, potassium and calcium and would also contain omega 3 and phytonutrients.
- they might help control blood sugar;
- they could soothe inflammatory conditions of the intestine or associated with arthritis.
To prevent cognitive and physical aging but also against constipation and hemorrhoids, one could drink this tasty drink which is an ally of health.
With rhubarb and strawberries we will create a bittersweet and fresh extract, enhanced with:
- apples, which give consistency and that unmistakable sweet and sour taste;
- fresh ginger root, for a spicy touch.
As for the quantities to use, for about 2 glasses of extract you need:
- 400 grams of strawberries;
- 2 ribs of rhubarb;
- 1 apple;
- 1 slice of ginger root 1 cm.
The first thing to do is to clean the fruits and vegetables.
We peel the apple, remove the seeds and the stem, then rinse the strawberries and remove the green stem.
Next, peel the slice of ginger and also rinse the rhubarb ribs.
Finally, we put everything in the extractor, proceeding little by little, and we drink this natural and multi-beneficial juice.
Purifying and diuretic, this typical vegetable of the month of March is perfect for a delicious recipe that could help us lower cholesterol
