Ah, the liver. One of our most impressive organs. Our livers never rest. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, our livers are trying to detoxify and neutralize all the harmful crap we put into our bodies. While it may be restless, that doesn’t mean it is invincible. The liver is extremely susceptible to being damaged and once damage has taken place it can quickly start working improperly.
The juice recipe below will help your body cleanse your liver, repair any past damage, and keep it in healthy, working condition. Remember, use organic, locally grown ingredients if you can!
- 500 ml of cool, pre-boiled water
- 6 fresh lemons
- 1 thumb of ginger root
- 4 garlic cloves
- 4 mint leaves
- 3 tablespoons of flaxseed oil
- 3 grapefruits
- A little cumin powder
Firstly, juice the lemons and the grapefruits. Second, chop the ginger and garlic into small pieces and place them in a bowl with the water. Let them sit in the water to saturate for 15 minutes. Next, place the lemon and grapefruit juices in a blender, add mint, flaxseed oil, and cumin. Lastly, dump the bowl of ginger, garlic, and water into the blender. Blend and enjoy!
