Oktoberfest for Juicerheads

This is a juice for seasoned juicerheads that feel like they need a cleanse. It has an earthy flavor and is about the color of a strong dark brew (hence the name). All of the ingredients have antioxidant and detoxifying qualities, and together they pack a real punch. This juice can be cut with water to make it a little less harsh if the flavor is overwhelming at first. After drinking this juice, your body may “cleanse” itself, so be prepared! After drinking it even once, though, you will feel energized.Although not included in many juice recipes because of its strong flavor, cabbage is a bona fide plethora of goodness. Containing beta carotene, vitamin C, and fiber, cabbage can help prevent many illnesses and digestive tract issues. Studies have also shown that cabbage has some effectiveness in preventing the growth of cancer, as it boosts DNA repair within the cells.
