Q:

Is apple juice a diuretic?

A:

Apple juice is a natural diuretic. It also offers a number of other detoxifying health benefits and helps to lower cholesterol.

In addition to being a natural diuretic, apple juice also works as a mild, natural laxative and has antiseptic properties. The juice is vitamin-rich, and contains beta-carotene, plus vitamin C and some of the B vitamins. When the peel is used in making the juice it is said to relieve gout, urinary tract problems and rheumatism.

Apple juice can be purchased at the grocery store or made at home. Homemade apple juice tends to have a thicker, pulp-like quality that makes it comparable to store-bought cider, though the pulp can be filtered out if desired.
