Recipe: Juice to prevent osteoarthritis

Fight this illness with cucumber, carrot and beetroot juice. Cucumber: one of the components is silica. Silica is a mineral with the ability to strengthen the body's connective tissues, i.e. muscles, ligaments, tendons, cartilage and even bones. Beetroot: Drinking beetroot juice can help reduce high blood pressure levels within hours. This benefit may be due to its naturally occurring nitrates, which are converted into nitric oxide when they reach the body. This nitric oxide contributes to the relaxation and dilation of blood vessels, thus improving circulation and helping to control blood pressure. Carrots: They are very rich in fibre, folic acid, potassium, calcium, magnesium and vitamin C. But if there is one thing that makes carrots stand out from other vegetables, it is their high vitamin A and antioxidant content. Their orange colour is due to vegetable pigments with antioxidant properties, called beta-carotenes. These components have vitamin properties, that is to say, that the liver transforms them into vitamin A, a vitamin necessary for the health of the skin, bone formation, fertility and reproduction.
