arugula juice

Arugula Juice Arugula is a spicy, dark leafy, mustard-flavored vegetable that is part of the cruciferous family (as are broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts).

It is very easy to grow; just plant a few seeds in a pot that you have in the window so that you can enjoy their leaves throughout the year.

Nourishing and healing properties

Because it is a cruciferous plant, it is considered a powerful food that helps prevent cancer.

It is also a popular aphrodisiac, so feel free to share it generously. It is also a great source of calcium, vitamins A, C and K, as well as potassium.

Arugula strengthen strong bones and teeth. This is due to the presence of vitamin K. In fact, some experts believe that vitamin K is more essential for bone health than calcium. Fortunately, arugula contains both.

It is an alkaline food. Consuming alkaline foods is essential to maintain healthy pH levels in your body. If your body is too acidic, it can lead to health problems, such as chronic pain, inflammation, hypertension, and stroke. Read more about alkaline foods here.

Selection and Storage Fresh arugula can be available in markets throughout the year. While shopping, look for crisp, young leafy greens. Avoid harvesting flowers, as their leaves are tough and bitter in taste. Discard yellow, bruised, or sunken leaves and stems before cooking.

Store the herb like you do other vegetables like spinach, purslane, kale, etc. Place it in the vegetable compartment of the refrigerator at a high relative humidity.

Be careful when mixing it with other ingredients, because being very aromatic, it immediately dominates the flavor of the drinks. To avoid this, it is recommended that young leaves be used, as they have a milder flavor.
