Ginger Smoothie for Cancer Prevention

Ginger Smoothie Recipe - Simple Green Smoothies
Apples and ginger make the perfect combo in this ginger smoothie recipe. Besides being absolutely delicious, apples and ginger also provide a fantastic combination of health benefits that have been shown to reduce the risk of cancer. Since both my parents have had cancer— I try to eat foods that will help prevent cancer as much as possible. This ginger smoothie is a match made in heaven with cancer-fighting antioxidants.

So often the nutrients fruit contains aren’t used by the body. If the body doesn’t have the tools to properly digest, absorb, and eventually use all those great nutrients they go to waste. In Gingerlicious, nothing the apple brings to the table is wasted thanks to its good friend, ginger.

Why this ginger smoothie rawks

Apples are considered a cancer-fighting food because of the antioxidants that fight on the front lines against free radicals. Free radicals cause oxidative stress, which damages cells and DNA.   These issues open the door for cancer. Apples are able to reduce oxidative stress by eliminating these free radicals. Who knew?!

But wait, that’s not all! One of the most impressive antioxidants found in apples is quercetin. On top of eliminating free radicals, this antioxidant stops mutating cells from damaging surrounding cells.  If cells are not allowed to contaminate one anther, cancer can’t spread.

Apples also contain phenolic compounds, a class of chemical compounds that have been proven to prevent cancer. Phenolic compounds enhance the immune system and assist in preventing the spread of cancerous cells. Talk about a hard-working fruit! Apples provide all these benefits and a ton of vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, potassium, vitamin K, and magnesium.

The power of ginger in this ginger smoothie

Ginger helps the body make the most of these nutrients by allowing for proper nutrient absorption. This means ginger promotes a healthy digestive system by making sure that nothing gets backed up and everything is put to good use. If you know what I mean… 😉

In addition to helping regulate the metabolism, ginger also promotes a strong immune system because it helps clean out bacteria in the colon. Pair this with all the nutrients found in apples and you can be confident that you are making the most of the nutrients available in your Gingerlicious Smoothie.

    Awesome Recipe! Could not ask for a better smoothie. It was really smooth and both of my kids loved it! There was not enough of a full cup left for me. I had to make it twice!

    This has been my least favorite. I didn’t like the sting from the ginger.
