Your liver is your main blood detoxifying organ, and it can get bogged down from time to time depending on your diet, activity level, and the environment.When an overload of toxins becomes too much for your liver to handle, toxic compounds can store within tissues and decrease your quality of health. Cleansing your liver can be helpful for revving up the function of your body’s natural cleansing mechanisms.
If you’re cleansing your liver, you need to provide your body with nutrition that is easy to digest. You don’t want your body to spend its energy digesting food, but you definitely need to keep a good balance of nutrients, electrolytes, and antioxidants to provide support during the cleanse.Juicing is a powerful way to support the cleansing of your liver without compromising the body’s natural healing process. Here’s a potent juice cocktail you can make to aid your liver function.
Prep time: 8 minutes
3 organic carrots (peeled and washed)
1 organic beet (peeled and washed)
