Cabbage juice to help support your digestive tract, alkalizes the body, stimulates the immune system and aids in healing ulcers and G.E.R.D.
Cabbage contains a compound called glutamine, which protects the lining of the digestive tract, helps irritated areas because of G.E.R.D. (Gastroesophogeal Reflux Disease or commonly known as acid reflux) as well as promotes healing of wounds and the healing and regeneration of the cells in the gastrointestinal tract.
According to Michael T. Murray, ND, studies done at Stanford University’s School of Medicine on cabbage juice and ulcerative colitis showed healing within seven days after beginning cabbage juice consumption.

All raw juices offer optimal benefits immediately after juicing, but their vitamin content declines after sitting for a period of time. Cabbage juice will last for up to two days, but should be consumed as soon as possible after juicing.
