Because this juice has several powerful flavors (apples, ginger, lemon, beets, and carrots), you can play around with different amounts to get it to taste the way you want to. Adding more beets and carrots will give it a rich, earthy flavor, while more lemon or ginger will bring a refreshing zing. Beets are excellent for detoxification support, lowering blood pressure, fighting inflammation, and they give you an energy boost. The apple and pear give you a healthy dose of fiber, the carrots support healthy skin and vision, and the lemon helps alkalize your body.
