Doctors all over the world agree that a healthy liver is critical for overall good health. Consequently, detoxing the liver can benefit one immensely in a variety of different ways.
Eating processed foods, consuming copious amounts of alcohol, and having a sedentary lifestyle can cause the body to accumulate toxins over time and damage the liver. Even those who live a relatively healthy lifestyle, however, can accumulate toxins via pollution in the environment.
If you are ready to halt this dangerous process and cleanse your liver, this delicious, natural lemon juice will detox your liver and leave you feeling much better. This healthy juice is loaded with nutrients, electrolytes, and antioxidants.
What you will need:
- 6 Organic Kale Leaves
- 1 Organic Beet (peeled)
- ½ inch of ginger root
- ½ organic lemon (peeled)
- 3 Organic Carrots (peeled)
- 2 Organic Red Apples (cut)
Time it takes to prep: 8 minutes
How to Prepare
Place your the ingredients in a juicer, or a high-power blender. When utilizing a blender be sure to add one or two cups of water to the mixture and strain with a colander before drinking, so it is like a juice and not a smoothie. You do not have to do this step with a juicer however, just be sure to stir well.
Serve with ice for a refreshing, cool treat. You can store the juice in a container and place in a refrigerator overnight as well.
So what makes this drink so healthy?
Kale: This plant is naturally high in chlorophyll, which gets rid of waste in the bloodstream and can lessen the effect of chemical, toxic metals, and pesticides.
Lemon: Citrus fruits in general are high in Vitamin C, which turns toxins into substances that the water can absorb with ease. This boosts the overall function of your liver.
Apples contain many nutrients that aid in the cleansing process and rid the digestive tract of toxins.
Ginger is known to treat a host of digestive problems like flatulence, bloating, and constipation.
Carrots and Beets contain a high amount of plant flavonoids and vitamin A (beta-carotene) and enhance the liver’s function.
If you are ready to begin your detox journey, this lemon detox juice is a great first step. Your liver (and your body) will thank you later.
