Top Juices That Can Help Improve Your Lung Health

The foods you eat can affect the health of your lungs. However, many people forget that the liquids you drink can also improve your lung health. For instance, homemade juices are capable of creating lung health improvements.

Why Homemade Juices Are Good for Lung Health

Juicing is squeezing or mashing up a fruit or vegetable in order to extract the natural liquids they hold. Many of these natural juices can be beneficial for chronic lung disease patients. You may have heard that juices aren’t good for your lung health, and this is true of store-bought juices that contain lots of preservatives and added sugar. However, homemade juices don’t contain these ingredients and can be helpful for your lungs.

Juices That Promote Healthy Lungs

There are several specific juices you can make at home that you should consider adding to your lung health diet. For instance, lemon, tomato and beet juices have lots of antioxidants, vitamin C and other nutrients that support lung health. Also, juices from celery have nutrients that allow them to help fight inflammation and improve digestion. Cucumber juice also contains a number of nutrients that support lung health by regulating hydration and helping to reduce bloating.

Homemade Juice Recipes for Lung Health

Some people may not know how to make homemade juices. To make many types of juices, you’ll need to make sure you have a juicer or juice press. If you don’t have a juicer or juice press, you can also use a blender as long as you blend the ingredients until smooth and then press them through a fine mesh strainer. Always make sure the recipes you use only include lung-healthy ingredients. Here are 3 easy juice recipes that are also good for lung health:

Simple Tomato Juice

Serves 2


  • 5 ripe tomatoes, rinsed and cut
  • 2 celery stalks, rinsed and cut
  • Salt and pepper (optional)
  • Hot sauce of choice (optional)


  1. Press or juice ingredients.  
  2. Once juiced, add salt and pepper to taste. If you like more heat, you can also add some hot sauce.


Zingy Beet Juice

Serves 2


  • 2 medium beets, scrubbed, tops removed
  • 1 seedless cucumber
  • 1-inch long piece of fresh ginger, scrubbed
  • 1 medium lemon, skin removed



  1. Chop ingredients into small pieces.
  2. Put chopped ingredients through a juicer. If you are not a fan of tart flavor, you may want to start with half of the lemon and taste before adding the rest.

AI2™ Plans Include Recipes Designed to Improve Your Lung Health

Many of the recipes included in the Anti-Inflammatory Initiative™, or AI2™, from Lung Health Institute include juices that promote lung health. For instance, lung-healthy juices are included in our Morning Wake-Up Call recipe, and this option is a lung-healthy way to start your day. Our AI2 is also designed to help boost the immune system and train your body to use fats as fuel to fight inflammation.

In addition, we provide an option called cellular therapy that may benefit your lungs. Cellular therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that uses concentrated platelets and cells from your own blood to target lung disease. These platelets release healing properties that, when combined with proteins, growth factors and other beneficial cells, may help promote healing in damaged tissue and reduce inflammation in your lungs.
