1 orange
1 pear
1 apple
a slice of ginger, ½ inch

Juice all ingredients and enjoy.

What can this juice do for you?
In Chinese Medicine ginger is a warming herb. It balances the cold nature of the fruits. Therefore it’s great to add ginger to your diet in winter. Ginger helps against a common cold, vomiting, cough, asthma and diarrhea.
