Day Ten – Jay’s Famous Lemonade

Most everyone loves an ice cold glass of freshly made lemonade. In the video below Jay Kordich says if you’ve never made HIS famous lemonade, then you haven’t had REAL lemonade. No sugar is used, just lemon and apples.

Did you know that the white pulp of lemons is chock full of bioflavonoids?  This provides antioxidants, is anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, protects against free radical damage and strengthens weak blood vessels and cataracts. Lemons are also high in vitamin C, yet another powerful antioxidant as well as a strong builder of the immune system. Also they are one of the best alkaline foods you can put in your body.

JAY’S FAMOUS LEMONADE Recipe:
1/4 lemon,  two apples.

As you’ll see, Jay is using the outside skin as well as the inside of the lemon. For this reason, we recommend a thorough washing of the lemon before juicing, even if you purchase organic lemons.

Jay’s Holiday Dozen Day Seven Mint Julep

This is Day Seven of 12 consecutive posts with Jay demonstrating how to make each juice recipe. Also included is nutrition and research information to compliment Jay’s choice of fruit and/or vegetable drinks.  Happy Holidays from all of us at JayKordich.com

Day Seven –  Jay’s Mint Julep

First up is the Mint with many health benefits. An anti-oxidant with disease preventing properties, it contains the essential oil Menthol, an analgesic, (pain killer) and counter-irritant. Research has shown mint to relax the intestinal wall and help with irritable bowel syndrome.

Mint contains calcium, magnesium and potassium as well as vitamin A, beta carotine, vitamin C and E. There are also B-complex vitamins like folates, riboflavin and B-6 and it also contains vitamin-K.

Next is Lemon with the skin and the white pulp. High in potassium for reduced risk of stroke, they also offer pectin for controlling cholesterol and of course vitamin C and bioflavonoids for strong blood vessels and eye health. Hesperetin and naringenin are flavonoids in lemons that show anti-inflammatory properties and immune system support.

Research indicates the lemon peel and oil helps reduce the risk of skin cancer. It also contains a substance called Limonene, which produces anti cancer properties in lab research and increases beneficial enzymes in the liver. Plus the vitamin C is a natural antihistamine and helps with allergic reactions.

Finally the apple. Research conducted at Cornell University has also shown apples may help keep breast cancer away, as well as the doctor.  Apples are full of phytonutrients for blood sugar regulation and flavonoids like Quercetin to help break down carbohydrates into simple sugars.

They have polyphenols that have been shown to lessen the absorption of glucose from the digestive tract and to stimulate cells in the pancreas to secrete insulin. This increases the uptake of glucose from the blood contributing to better regulation of blood sugar.

Apples are also high in pectin for controlling cholesterol. They have a strong antioxidant composition that helps with the oxidation of fats in our diet and apples have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties that is still being studied aggressively by scientists and researchers worldwide.

Jay’s Bourbon-Free Kentucky Mint Julep

This was a real treat for those of us at the studio when we shot our latest video. It was a new recipe for us and when Jay finished making the juice and we all tasted it, we went crazy for it. It was one of the best tasting juice recipes ever. It’s simply spearmint, lemon and apples. Besides the great taste, this is a nutritional powerhouse of a drink.

Lemon

First we have Lemon with the skin and the white pulp. Lemons are high in potassium for reduced risk of stroke, offer pectin for controlling cholesterol and of course vitamin C and bioflavonoids for strong blood vessels and eye health. Hesperetin and naringenin are flavonoids in lemons that show anti-inflammatory properties and immune system support.

It also contains a substance called Limonene, which produces anti cancer properties in lab research and increases beneficial enzymes in the liver. Plus the vitamin C is a natural antihistamine and helps with allergic reactions.

Spearmint

Next up is the Mint. This popular herb has many health benefits. It’s an anti-oxidant with disease preventing properties. It contains the essential oil Menthol, an analgesic, (pain killer) and counter-irritant. Research has shown mint to relax the intestinal wall and help with irritable bowel syndrome.

Mint contains calcium, magnesium and potassium as well as vitamin A, beta carotine, vitamin C and E. There are also B-complex vitamins like folates, riboflavin and B-6 and it also contains vitamin-K.

Apple

Finally we come to the apple. Most of us know it’s a great source of total nutrition. Research conducted at Cornell University has also shown apples may help keep breast cancer away, as well as the doctor.

Apples are full of phytonutrients for blood sugar regulation and flavonoids like Quercetin to help break down carbohydrates into simple sugars. They have polyphenols that have been shown to lessen the absorption of glucose from the digestive tract and to stimulate cells in the pancreas to secrete insulin.
