The Ben Hucke.

Yep. This is happening.

If you follow any well known riders on Instagram, chances are you have noticed them juicing (no, not Lance Armstrong style). Photos of fruits & veggies on countertops have been abundant recently.This is all good in my book. Well… One night, something came over me and I tweeted at some dudes saying “Let’s get some juicing recipes on Defgrip. I’m serious!”, and Ben Hucke came through like greased lightning without much persuasion from me. It was apparent through the information he provided that he was all about this and knew his shit. Read below for Ben’s favorite recipe and its benefits. I’ve dubbed it “The Ben Hucke”.

The Ben Hucke:

Carrots – Known to improve vision, help lower the risk of breast, colon and lung cancer,  prevent heart disease, reduce stroke, nourish skin, anti aging effects and dental health.

Beets – Brain and energy boost, super antioxidant, anti inflammatory, cell detox, improve mental health making you feel more positive, reduces risk of skin and lung cancer. Also known as Natures Viagra! haha.

Celery – Immune system, blood pressure, inflammation and arthritis.

Parsley – Immune system, healthy heart, anti inflammatory, arthritis, antioxidants, lowers stress, anti cancer, inhibits the formation of tumors especially in the lungs, colon and prostate.

Cilantro – Metal cleansing (loosens any metals from tissue), lowers effects of anxiety, improves sleep, antibacterial/anti-fungle activity and strong antioxidant.

Cucumber – B vitamins for a quick pick me up, hydration, joint health, fresh breath, hangover cure, and fights cancers, digestion and weight loss.

Apples – Bone protection, asthma help, antihistamine, alzheimers prevention, lower cholesterol, cancer prevention of several different types.

You can add as little or as much of any of these ingredients and it’s still good. Adding juicing to my normal diet has helped me out a lot as far as feeling better, clearing my mind,  no longer have allergies, acid reflux disease is completely gone and I just have more energy in general. Juicing allows the nutrients to go straight into your blood stream replenishing your cells within five minutes, you can actually feel it happening in that time and feel yourself lift up and ready to go for the day.

In today’s society it’s hard and it’s expensive to live healthy, but slowly adding fresh juices to your diet over time will subconsciously allow you to become more aware of eating healthy and naturally craving healthy foods.

    there’s a reason you can drink 3lbs of juice from produce but can’t eat the same amount. significant amounts of nutrients are lost with the discarded leftover pulp from juicing, the most important being almost all the fiber. the “lift up” you feel is a sugar rush, not a vitamin boost.

    juicing is a positive step in the right direction for people who can’t eat produce naturally(old folks with dentures) or simply refuse to(fastfood diet young men), but it’s hardly a replacement for eating your veggies, much less a nutritional magic bullet.

    H is a little misinformed in his first paragraph; incorrect. Most nutrients and beneficial properties of plants are in the plant “blood” aka juice.
    He is right in the last part of his final sentence, it’s not a way to offset bad eating habits that aren’t centered around unprocessed plant based foods.

    Just eat it. Pussy.
