Good source of calcium and vitamins C and K, nutrients needed for good bone health.

Vitamin C is important for collagen production, a major structural component of bone. and Vitamin K – found in plants, especially dark leafy green vegetables – helps convert osteocalcin to its active form, which anchors calcium in the bone.


Rich in calcium and vitamin K, as well as magnesium and zinc.

Magnesium helps calcium get in and out of cells. Studies show that supplementation can increase bone density by 8%. Of course, supplementing with fresh, raw juice is best.

Zinc can stimulate protein synthesis in bone.


Is likewise a good source of calcium, vitamin C, magnesium, and zinc. It also provides manganese and potassium.

Manganese is important for healthy connective tissues, including cartilage. Many Americans are deficient in this is mineral.

Potassium helps your kidneys retain calcium. When your potassium is too low, you lose calcium in urine.


A good source of silica, which promotes the formation of bones and teeth. Most of the silica is found in the peel, so you’ll want to use organic cucumbers, or if conventionally grown, soak them in baking soda water for 10 minutes – just add a teaspoon of baking soda to a salad spinner size bowl of water and swish to dissolve – and scrub under running water to remove any surface pesticides.


Apples provide sweetness, but apples are also a good source of manganese. I typically add one apple to a 16-oz juice, but feel free to use 2 if you are new to green juices and prefer them to be sweet. Cloudy apple juice has about the same glycemic load as eating a whole apple. (If you’re diabetic, it’s generally recommended that you reduce the fruit in your juice to about half an apple, or just add more lemon.)


Provides copper, which essential for the effectiveness of an enzyme that is involved in the creation of collagen.


Lemon juice has many benefits. It’s used here primarily to brighten up the flavor. I typically use 1/4 – 1/2 lemon in 16 oz. juice.

I hope you like this green juice as much as I do. It’s an excellent way to get important minerals and vitamins for strong, healthy bones.
