The human body is a complex system that can protect itself, but there are periods when it gets overwhelmed and that is the period that you need to do something for it so that you can prolog your life. The body will send you signals when it needs to be refreshed and rejuvenated and in those cases you will experience fatigue, lack of energy, or darkened circles. These are not the only symptoms that the body will send indicating that is overburdened with harmful toxins. But, these are the common ones that by all means should not get ignored. In this case you should introduce a detox treatment that will purify your body from all the build-up toxins.
We recommend a simple detox juice that will clean your colon and remove liver fat. This juice is based on powerful ingredients like beets, carrots and cucumber that will nourish your body with the needed nutrients and at the same time clean it from the accumulated toxins. Here it is how to prepare it:
A Recipe of a Detox Juice
- 1 lemon
- 1 apple
- 1 cucumber
- 1 beet of medium-size
- 4 baby carrots
- A fresh ginger root, around 1 inch long
Method of preparation:
For this juice you will need a robot-mixer, and in it put all the listed ingredients cut in small pieces. If the consistency is too thick, you can simply add a little bit of water.
Consume this juice for 3 weeks in a row. Its consumption can help you to entirely clean the colon. For optimal effects, during this period of consumption you should incorporate a diet low in meat and sugar, but high in vegetables and seasonal fruits. Plus, you need to drink a large glass of hot water (at 98.6 degrees) prior your main meals, in total 3 times a day.
How does it work?
It is very effective due to the content of the natural ingredients. Namely, the presence of beet contributes lot as it is packed with minerals like iron, magnesium, and potassium; B9 vitamins (folic acids); fiber, and carbohydrates. The content of betalaines and flavonoids does not provide only the red color of this root but as well as its antioxidant effect that can fight off cell aging. It can successfully clean the liver in a form of juice by regulating the acidity levels in the body and keeping a healthy pH balance of the body.
On the other hand, the presence of apple will offer plenty of phytonutrients, antioxidants and pectin that support the detox action by improving intestinal transit. Not to mention the fact, that it will reduce all those food cravings.
Carrots are packed with carotenes and minerals that will nourish the body and most importantly lower high levels.
The presence of cucumber will offer the needed hydration and nutrients like vitamins A, B, C, potassium, folic acids and amino acids. This watery veggie acts as natural diuretic due to its rich content of water that will successfully remove the waste from the body.
Finally the presence of lemon will facilitate digestion and the ginger will lower bloating by stimulating the colon and the detox action of lemon juice.
Why detoxification is very important for our body?
If you regularly detox your body you will prevent the occurrence of colon obstruction, or otherwise known as bowel obstruction. This condition is commonly manifested by a consequent closure of the large intestine that impedes the removal of feces and the transit of gases. It often leads to bloating and severe constipation, fever, fatigue, lack of appetite, and abdominal pain or cramps.
This detox treatment will be of great assistance for your liver which is accountable for the removal of toxins from the body. It releases enzymes that transform the harmful toxins thereby allowing their removal via your kidneys. But, when the body is overwhelmed with toxins the liver cannot remove all the build-up of toxins and thus influence the overall health and well-being. Therefore, the introduction of this juice will detox your body, help your detox organs and contribute to optimal health.
People who suffer from kidney stones or obstructed bile ducts should not use ginger. Additionally, this root can interact with the prescribed blood thinners or other foods with anticoagulant features.
On the other hand, people with gastric and biliary disorders, or kidney stones should avoid the use of lemon.
