Beets are high in natural nitrates that allow our muscles to use oxygen more efficiently which increases endurance. Carrots add in some much-needed antioxidant power (via the beta carotene and other phyto-nutrients) helping to protect us from exercise induced free radicals, and the optional addition of cayenne pepper enhances metabolism, allowing you to burn more fat. In addition, the natural sugars from both the carrots and beets provide a nice energy boost. (source: Myfitstation)  This recipe will make about four 2oz shots or enough for two workouts. Take two 2 oz shots an hour before your workout. Store the other half for 24 hours max.

**(warning about beets: If you are not used to drinking beets you will experience loose stool after drinking it due to its detoxifying and cleansing nature.This is just normal. Just wanted you, the reader, to take that into consideration.  You might also have reddish urine, which is also just normal.)

He mixes cabbage, carrot, celery, a combination shown to be more palatable than straight cabbage juice for most people… (from: http://youtu.be/OBuIiviFH2Q)- Jay emphasizes, though that it’s important to consume the cabbage juice within one minute after making, or else it will quickly lose the medicinal properties. (thanks Jeff Batter)

One of the power house drinks of all time…  the raw potassium broth feeds every cell in your body and nourishes your circulatory system… it is essential to our health because it has a  high density of nutrients per calorie… (from: http://youtu.be/xg0CMXMbD68)
