7 Surprisingly Delish Cabbage Juice Recipes for Gut Health

cabbage juice recipes

Cabbage juice recipes are not at the top of most people’s favorite recipes list. But they should be. Oh, they so should be.

Especially if you care about nourishing your gut. ‘Cause one of the humble cabbage’s best health perks is protecting and strengthening your digestive tract. How does cabbage juice do this? Let us count the ways…

  • Raw cabbage is rich in Vitamin U, which isn’t actually a vitamin so much as it’s an enzyme. But whatever you want to call it, this obscure vitamin strengthens your stomach lining and increases its resistance to ulcers.
  • Cabbage contains the amino acid glutamine, which aids in the growth and regeneration of your digestive tract’s cells.
  • Cabbage is abundance in sulfur, which helps combat inflammation in the colon and large intestine.
  • Ever had an ulcer? Then you know that one of the major causes of ulcers is the  h.pylori bacteria. Cabbage helps get rid of that pesky bugger.

As you already know, the health of your gut impacts the health of your entire body so by strengthening you digestive tract, you’re getting a whole host of head-to-toe health benefits. But in case you need another reason to try your first cabbage juice recipe – here it is: raw cabbage contains glucosinolates which have been shown to have unique cancer-preventative properties for bladder, colon and prostate cancer. The compounds in cabbage are also thought to change the way estrogen is used in the body, reducing the risk of breast cancer as well.

This benefit only applies to raw cabbage since heat destroys the myrosinase enzymes that help convert cabbage’s glucosinolates into cancer-preventive compounds. And let’s face it – it’s much easier (and tastier) to down a glass or two or raw cabbage juice than to sit around chomping on a head of cabbage, right?

Right. Here are some of my favorite cabbage juice recipes to get you started. You should know that every single one is waaay tastier than cabbage juice has any right to be.

what is ‘delish’ cabbage? Is it some kind of slang for ‘delicious’? I wish people would stop using abbreviations for everything these days, for people who are not ‘trendy’.
