Information on juicing Cabbage

Cabbage is a highly nutritional vegetable that can be put through your juicer to achieve juice with great healing powers. Juicing cabbage has a number of health benefits that have been documented over many years. Green cabbage contains a number of minerals and vitamins including potassium, sulphur, chlorine, iodine, vitamin C, vitamin B6 and 'vitamin U'.

To juice cabbage simply cut a segment out of the cabbage head and chop it into blocks small enough to fit down the juicer’s feeding chute.

When juicing cabbage you should not drink more than about 4oz of cabbage juice at a time and it is best mixed with other juices such as carrot / apple juice. The flavour combination of carrot and cabbage is well tested, as cabbage and carrot are the base ingredients of many varieties of coleslaws. Coleslaws are highly popular dishes that regularly appear in a raw food diet.

If you consume too much cabbage juice in one go then you may experience a feeling of gas and slight cramps in the intestine due to the sulphur in the cabbage juice reacting with bacteria that exist in the intestines.

Cabbage juice has been used to treat a number of health conditions including colitis, constipation, hair loss, skin problems but it is probably most well known for its ability to heal ulcers. It is believed that the glutamine content of cabbage is the main driving force behind the use of cabbage juice to heal ulcers.

Cabbage is available in both green and red varieties and both can be successfully juiced. When selecting cabbage for juicing make sure that the cabbage head is firm and the leaves are crisp. Avoid limp cabbages that show signs of yellowing as their nutritional content will have begun to decline due to being past their time of optimum ripeness.

One of the great things about cabbage is that it is relatively cheap compared to many other vegetables and it can be stored for a relatively long time in the fridge. This makes it an excellent standby for your juicing routines and means that you can juice without worrying about overspending / wasting perishable produce.
