Juice Recipe: Spinach Spectacular

Spinach Spectacular is the perfect mid-day power booster. Taken with a light lunch, it will see you through a mentally or physically arduous afternoon and still leave you with reserves for an evening on the town. As a bonus, both spinach and watercress contain powerful substances which protect against cancer.

Apple 1, unpeeled, uncored and quartered

Celery 1 stick, with leaves 3 oz fresh young leaves

watercress 1 handful

Vital statistics:

Super-rich in Vitamins A, C and folic acid. Rich in riboflavin (B2). While a certain sailor-man ate it for iron, spinach is hard to make the most of due to the high levels of oxalic acid in its leaves which stop absorption. Placed in this Superjuice, however, the huge amounts of other vitamins and nutrients it contains would have given popeye superpowers even he never dreamt of!
