Things that harm your liver are food additives, over-the-counter pills, stress and environmental toxins. This is why it’s very important to perform a liver detox every once in a while. Doing this will help your liver to recover and give it the much needed break. An unhealthy liver can have a negative effect on your other organs and weaken your immune system in the process.
Here are 3 very effective drinks to help detox your liver and flush out excessive fat that’s been storing toxins for too long.
- Multi-Color Smoothie
– 1 bell pepper (any color)
– 3 carrots
– 1 medium cucumber
– half a lemon (peeled)
– 1 organic apple (with the skin)
Blend these ingredients altogether and drink the beverage at once. This detox smoothie has got high levels of vitamin C, A and dietary fibers, which are needed to flush out toxins. Having a glass or two a day is not only good for cleansing your liver but it will also help you improve your skin complexion and energy levels.
- Green Tea Citrus Mix
– Half a cup of cooled green tea
– half a lemon juice
– 1 banana
The powerful antioxidant called EGCG found in green tea acts together with the lemon juice to detoxify your body rapidly. EGCG is absorbed much better in the presence of vitamin C and potassium from the banana.
- Golden Liver-Flushing Juice
– half a teaspoon of turmeric
– a bit of ginger
– the juice of half a lemon
– half a cup of water
The combined benefits of these super-foods help you cleanse your bowels and prevent gallstones.
