Are You Ready For Arugula?

Are You Ready For Arugula?

One of my favorite juices to make is one I call the “Arugula Rocket,” and I joke that it’s jet fuel for your social life. Not only does arugula contain lots of antioxidants, it’s also helpful in detoxifying your liver, clearing and beautifying skin, and improving your enjoyment of bedroom activities. Yes, it’s an aphrodisiac! The minerals and antioxidants in arugula work together to cleanse libido-killing contaminants from your body, leaving you energized and ready for play.

If that wasn’t enough reason to press arugula into service for my juices, this is: Arugula contains phytochemicals that counter the carcinogenic effects of estrogen, inhibiting cancer- cell growth that leads to prostate, breast, cervical, colon, and ovarian cancers.

Yes, arugula might be a bitter herb, but you’ll feel anything but bitter when you incorporate it into your juice regimen. Here’s my favorite way to drink arugula.

Arugula Juice

1 head of fresh arugula
2 large granny smith apples, seeds removed
2 stalks of celery
1 large cucumber
