Juice Recipe: Cantaloupe & Grape

0

Talking with friends in the Juicing for Health group on Facebook, I have been inspired to revisit some of my favourite melon juice recipes as well as try some new ones. I enjoy eating melon and grapes for breakfast and they combine really well in a juice too.

Cantaloupe melons are a great source of Vitamins A & C as well as Potassium. Grapes are rich in a wide variety of phytonutrients, including the well known Resveratrol, with a range of health benefits.

In a paper titled ‘Anti-proliferative effect of resveratrol, a natural component of grapes and wine, on human colonic cancer cells’, the authors state:

Resveratrol caused a significant decrease of ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) activity, a key enzyme of polyamine biosynthesis, which is enhanced in cancer growth…In conclusion, our results are the first to describe a potent anti-proliferative effect of resveratrol on the growth of human colon cancer cells.

Juice Fiend Says

When I bottle juice to drink later on, I like to fill it to overflowing. This means I waste a tiny bit of juice. But the benefit is that I can ensure on air will be in the bottle oxidising my juice and reducing its nutrient profile.
