Mango Salsa Juice – Recipe Of The Week

By: Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN; Reboot Nutritionist

Bold, fresh flavors with a kick make this juice a perfect pick me up anytime of day.

The jalapeno peppers have potent phytonutrients including capsaicin. Capsaicin offers anti inflammatory and pain relieving actions that can alleviate swelling and pain from conditions like arthritis, fibromyalgia or exercise induced muscle aches. Capsaicin is even being studied as a potential agent to combat chemotherapy side effects.

Capsaicin also helps encourage thermogenesis, or heat production in the body which means it may also boost metabolism. Studies show that people who eat spicy foods consume on average 10% less calories a day compared to those who abstain from the heat. Just a small portion of this juice is really satisfying and perfect for a lunch or dinner meal or afternoon snack.
