PMS Relief Tonic

Fennel is a uterine tonic, which makes it a soothing choice for any prementrual symptoms.

4 large mustard green leaves
1/2 bunch fresh flat-leaf parsley
5 carrots
1 Granny Smith apple

Cut the vegetables and the apple into pieces that will fit into the chute of your extraction juicer. Then, following the manufacturer’s instructions, juice all of the ingredients in the order given. Pour into a tall glass.
