Ingredient Cleansing Benefits:
Beet - This deep-burgundy beauty is a detox diva. With loads of betaine to flush the liver and bring down homocysteine levels, beets help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, aiding brain function, and stabilizing mood.
Carrot - A relative of parsley and celery, carrots contain loads of life-extending carotenes and minerals. This vegetable helps lower cholesterol, too, and alleviates skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema, all while enhancing the respiratory system's resistance to infection.
Apple - Tasty, able to break down toxins, lower cholesterol, and enhance digestion, this fruit is a popular, versatile, and cost-effective go-to for juices. With phytonutrients, powerful antioxidants like quercetin, vitamin A (in the peel), vitamin C, and significant potassium, apple is a prime detox food that's available year âround.
Lemon - This alkalizing tart tamer is a potent detoxifier and natural antibiotic that improves liver function, relieves constipation, and can help dissolve kidney and gall stones. High levels of vitamin C help boost immunity and alleviate symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, as well as combat heart disease.
Spinach - Highly alkalizing, spinach contains nearly twice as much iron as any other green, and helps to build blood by helping red blood cells carry oxygen. It also helps strengthen all other cells, particularly those of the respiratory system and brain. Rich in chlorophyll and carotene, spinach can help reduce the development of abnormal cells and macular degeneration.
Cucumber - This vege-fruit truly is the ultimate cool-hydrate-cleanse food. It's right in there regulating body temperature and easing inflammation. A relative of squashes and melons, the cuke is a natural diuretic (due to that abundant water), aiding in cell hydration, waste removal, and dissolving kidney stones.
Ginger - Used in its raw form, this brilliant health-promoting juice booster gives beautiful back-end kick to blends of all kinds. In one serving of juice, as little as a half-inch slice of washed, unpeeled root packs a powerful punch.
