Pineapple Celery Mint Juice

Pineapple Celery Mint Juice

I have been reading a lot of articles lately about how celery juice contains the compound 3-n-butylphtalide, or phthalate, which can reduce high blood pressure by relaxing the smooth muscles in the walls of the blood vessels. Some even say that it is so effective that it could one day replace the pharmaceutical remedies that people are using today, which have a lot of nasty side affects. I took my blood pressure the other day, and it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t the athletic number that it was when I was doing a little mo’ cardio. So in addition to squeezing some more exercise into my routine, I decided to attack from all angles and come up with a celery juice that didn’t taste…like celery. This juice was so tasty and fresh! I wish I had made 5 times as much. Pineapple also has great digestive enzymes and mint has a calming affect on the stomach as well, so this made the perfect midnight snack last night. It tasted like green candy!
