Cabbage-Carrot-Apple Juice

This is a powerhouse juice when it comes to healing stomach ulcers, but it’s also a great source of anti-oxidants like Vitamin A and Vitamin C, plus Vitamin K and Folate. However, the main source for ulcer-healing is the cabbage.

“The healing properties found in cabbage come from two anti-ulcer compounds, glutamine (an amino acid that fuels the cells that line the stomach and intestine) and S-methyl-methionine (labeled as Vitamin U by Dr. Cheney). Glutamine is available in capsules for those who are too busy to juice cabbage, and is proven as a superior cure to antacids. Juicing cabbage is simple, and done by cutting the head into segments small enough to fit into your juicer’s feeding chute.

When using cabbage juice it is recommended not to drink more than 4 oz at a time to avoid over stimulating the gastric juices, which can lead to cramping of the intestine and gassiness due to the sulfur in the juice reacting with existing intestinal bacteria. Mixing cabbage juice with carrot juice can help cut the effect of sulfur and tone intestinal walls. Beyond its ability to heal stomach ulcers, cabbage is also recognized as a successful treatment for a number of other health conditions including colitis and constipation. It is also known to help clear up acne, and heal infected gums. It’s important to choose heads of cabbage that are firm with no loose leave or discoloration, which means loss of nutritional value.” ~~ Juliet White, Ezine Articles

With a quick scan through health websites and books, you’ll find more information claiming the same — cabbage is the miracle veggie when it comes to stomach ulcers. So if you’re suffering from one, try this remedy.

Cabbage-Carrot-Apple Juice

Cabbage Carrot Apple Juice

1/4 head of cabbage, tough stem cut out

1 large carrot, peeled

1 small organic apple, any variety

Using a commercial juicer, place an 8-ounce glass beneath the spout and insert vegetables one-by-one until all juice has dispensed from juicer.

Mix and drink immediately.

For optimum stomach ulcer healing, drink four 4-6 ounce glasses per day for 10 days.

Cabbage — The active ingredient is an amino acid called L-glutamine, which nourishes the cells lining the esophagus and stomach so they repair themselves.

Apples — Rich in fiber, apples can help reduce the risk of developing a peptic ulcer. High-fiber foods like apples can speed up the recovery for people who already have peptic ulcers. Apples also have flavonoids, compounds which may reduce the growth of ulcer-causing bacteria.

Carrots — Packed with Vitamin A, carrots promote healing of damaged issue, as do spinach, sweet potatoes and asparagus.

    I’ve tried it just once so far, but it tastes pretty good. My naturopathic doctor had a slightly different recipe with only 2 cabbage leaves, but still same 1 carrot and 1 apple. We will see how it goes.

    Tried this juice yesterday and I loved it. I have been on a juice cleansing journey the past 2 weeks and had not done any with cabbage; how refreshing it was. Just had another cup of this wonderful juice using red cabbage, a granny smith apple and a carrot; all organic of course. Thanks for sharing this.
