A Liver Detox Juice!

While the body detox its self naturally. Eating foods that are truly beneficial to particular organs, wouldn’t hurt, especially due to the overwhelming toxicity we face every day.  The liver is one such organ.  This organ remove toxins from the body, so we got to keep it working. Here is a simple juice you can make on a regular basis to help to give it that welcoming boost. Try it nuh!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 handful of Kale.
  • 1 small Beetroot.
  • 3 stalks of Celery.
  • A handful of Parsley.
  • 1 ½ cups water.

DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare all the ingredients, ensuring beetroot is peeled and sliced.
  • Add all the ingredients to a Juicer/Blender.
  • Blend until smooth or your preferred consistency.
  • Enjoy right away or store in a jar in your Refrigerator.
  • Can be enjoyed chilled or room temperature.
Notes:
  • This is an awesome juice to have on a regular basis as it is just excellent for the entire body, particularly the liver.  However, you can spice it up a bit by adding a few pieces of apples or pears, just to give it a bit more sweetness, or palatability for those who are just not a fan of green juices (as yet :)).
  • If you use a Blender, you may want to strain the juice as it will be too thick from the remnants of the kale, beetroot and celery. Straining it, if you use a blender and not a juicer, will make it easier to enjoy and digest.

Ingredient Spotlight!

~ Parsley~

Parsley is one of the powerhouse ingredients in this juice.  It is an antioxidant-rich herb that is purported to be filled with a lot of great nutrients. These include vitamin A, K and C. Other nutrients include vitamin E, B-6, folate, iron, zinc and copper among many others. 

Some of these benefits have made this herb a nutritional powerhouse as it is touted to be able to help with diabetes, boosting the immune system, the kidneys, brain and heart as well as helping to improve the health of the bones.  The herb is mildly bitter in taste, so it is excellent for detoxifying the body while bolstering the immune system.
