Juicing is a highly beneficial and easy way of helping the body detoxify. Raw vegetables are full of enzymes which help the digestion. They contribute a concentrated supply of phytonutrients that could not be obtained by eating a normal amount of raw vegetables and fruit.
A normal diet will cause a build up of acids and metabolic waste products in the body, which can result in inflammation. This acidic state of the system can be neutralized by drinking raw juices. Celery, cucumber and cabbage are excellent to reduce acidity and support detoxification.
Raw juices also stimulate the function of the bowels, liver and kidneys, which will increase the breakdown and elimination of toxic chemicals and waste products from the body. Raw juices can increase the quality and flow of bile. Juicing can be directed at specific problems such as liver and kidney ‘detox’, arthritis, gout, re-mineralization, urinary cleansing, and weight loss.
They are also delicious! Here are three of my favorite blends. Blend or extract all ingredients, serve over ice and enjoy.
