The team at The Cook's Store have made a pact to have at least one cleansing juice a day. We've been doing this ritual over the past few weeks and have experienced noticeable differences to our skin, energy and overall zest (pardon the pun) for life. One of our firm favourites is the Ginger Spice Juice due to its powerful antiseptic and anti-inflammatory benefits. If you are feeling a little bit low, dehydrated, feverish or achey this juice will help perk you up.

As well as having similar properties to oranges research has shown that people who eat fruits and other high-fibre foods gain a certain amount of protection against Parkinson’s, a disease characterized by a breakdown of the brain’s dopamine-producing nerve cells.

Now all you will need to do is pop all the ingredients in a Juicer to feel fantastic and energised for the rest of the day.
