This is the reason why it’s so important to perform a liver detox every once in a while. Doing this will give your liver a much needed break and help it recover.
An unhealthy liver can affect other organs and weaken your immune system in the process.
Here’s a list of 3 very effective drinks to help detox your liver and flush out excessive fat that’s been storing toxins for too long (1).
1. Multi-Color Smoothie
- 1 bell pepper (any color of your choosing)
- 3 carrots
- 1 medium cucumber
- Half a lemon (peeled)
- 1 organic apple (keep the skin)
Blend all the ingredient together and drink immediately.
This detox smoothie contains high levels of vitamin C, A and dietary fiber, which are needed to flush out toxins.
Drinking a glass or two a day is not only good for cleansing your liver but it will also help improve your skin complexion and energy levels.
2. Green Tea Citrus Mix
- Half a cup of green tea, cooled down
- Juice of half a lemon
- 1 banana
The powerful antioxidant EGCG found in green tea acts together with the lemon juice to rapidly detoxify the body. EGCG is absorbed much better in the presence of vitamin C (2) and potassium (from the banana).
3. 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 superfoods help cleanse your bowels and prevent gallstones.
