Having a healthy liver is very important for the overall health. The liver can usually get damaged due to the consumption of processed foods, polluted environment, alcohol use, physical inactivity and nutrient-deficient food, which will cause it to accumulate toxins in fat. To prevent this process you need to detox your liver.
There is a powerful 6-ingredient lemon detox juice recipe that can very effectively cleanse your liver.
To prepare this juice you will need 6 ingredients and 10 minutes of your time.
• 6 Organic Kale leaves
• ½ organic peeled lemon
• 2 Organic washed and cut Red Apples
• ½ inch of ginger root
• 1 Organic washed and peeled Beet
• 3 Organic washed and peeled carrots
Mix all the ingredients in a blender or juicer. If you are using a blender, add 1-2 cups of water during the preparation, and then strain it with a colander and stir. If you are using a juicer, just stir the ingredients well.
Serve this detox juice with some ice. Store the rest of it in a jar.
There are numerous health benefits from every single ingredient in this juice when it comes to detox and cleansing.
The Kale is rich with plant chlorophylls which eliminate toxins from the bloodstream and neutralize toxic metals, pesticides and chemicals.
It is well-known that the citrus fruits like Lemon are abundant in vitamin C that synthesizes toxins into substances that can be easily absorbed by water.
The Apples have compounds which are useful for discarding toxins from the digestive tract. Ginger is very effective in the treatment of digestive problems like bloating, flatulence and constipation.
