Your liver is your main detoxifying organ, and it can get bogged down from time to time depending on your diet, activity level, and 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 with a liver detox can be helpful for revving up the function of your body’s natural detox mechanisms.

Juice Your Way to Health

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 detox. 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 during the cleansing process:

Ingredients:

  • 3 Organic Carrots (peeled and washed)
  • 1 Organic Beet (peeled and washed)
  • 2 Organic Red Apples (washed and cut)
  • 6 Organic Kale Leaves
  • ½ inch of ginger root
  • ½ organic lemon, peeled

Serving: 2-4 servings.

Directions:

If you don’t have a juicer, just use a blender filled with with one to two cups of water. Place all of the ingredients in a juicer and juice or in a blender and blend. If you used a juicer, make sure to stir with a spoon. If you used a blender, make sure to strain everything using a colander and then mix with a spoon.

Serve with some ice to keep it cool and enjoy! You can use mason jars to store it for later.

Why These Ingredients?

Here’s a quick overview of why we chose these liver cleansing foods for the liver cleanse juice recipe.

Beets and Carrots

Beets and carrots are extremely high in plant-flavonoids and beta-carotene (vitamin A). Eating these ingredients, along with other plant foods containing similar nutrients, can help stimulate and improve overall liver function.

Apples

High in pectin, apples hold the chemical constituents necessary for the body to cleanse and release toxins from the digestive tract. This, in turn, makes it easier for the liver to handle the toxic load during the cleansing process.

Kale

One of our most powerful allies in cleansing the liver, leafy greens such as kale can be eaten raw, cooked, or juiced. Extremely high in plant chlorophylls, greens suck up environmental toxins from the bloodstream. With their distinct ability to neutralize toxic metals, chemicals, and pesticides, these cleansing foods offer a powerful protective mechanism for the liver.

Ginger Root

Ginger has also been historically used for flatulence, constipation, bloating, and other digestive complaints. In addition to these gastro-protective effects, researchers have found ginger to be effective for stress-related ulcers.

Lemons

Citrus fruits, such as lemons, contain very high amounts of vitamin C, which aids the body in synthesizing toxic materials into substances that can be absorbed by water. Drinking freshly-squeezed lemon or lime juice in the morning helps stimulate the liver.

    Hi doc, great post. Is there a specific frame time to be drinking this juice:; as in for 3 days a week etc?

  • Hey Phil, I like to have it a few days a week, generally in the morning. It’s just a nice little boost but I’d still suggest periodic liver cleansing with the whole protocol to get the full effect!

    Thank you

  • Jeff Nunayorbizness

    Why peel organic beets and organic carrots? Aren’t the peels the most nutritious part?

  • Great question, just a personal preference, really. The peels are nutritious but losing the peels doesn’t render them worthless.

  • So what is the whole protocol then?

  • Hey Claudia, great question! Here is the complete liver cleanse instructions.
