Tired and sluggish? Try taking cleansing vegetable juices. Celery, carrots, etc. have excellent cleansing properties because the fruits and vegetables are medicines in themselves. Plus, it’s easy for the body to absorb them, so you can see the effects pretty quickly.
Here is a simple tip on preparing cleansing fruit and vegetable juices. Taking just two or three glasses of these a day will help you feel stronger, more alert, and even give you better skin.
Preparing the juice
Juice may be extracted by hand or through a juice maker or blender. To get rid of trace chemicals from fertilizers, soak fruits and vegetables thoroughly. Also removed any bruised segments or spots before extracting the juice. You may also want to include the skin of some fruits (such as apples) because it contains a lot of nutrients.
Best cleansing fruits and vegetables
One of the best things to include in a vegetable juice is spinach. It is excellent for restoring normal functions to the intestinal tract and can help cure constipation. Cabbage juice also has excellent cleansing properties (to make it more palatable, add onion and carrot juice). It is great for the digestive tract and can help prevent disease, because of its sulphur content. It can also help give you a beautiful, glowing complexion. (If you want good skin but don’t like cabbage, trymaking a juice from alfalfa, carrot and cucumber.)
To cleanse the blood and kidneys, steep parsley in boiling water to make a kind of tea. This is also recommended for kidney stones and releasing toxins.
Beetroot juice can cleanse the liver and the blood. Just combine one beetroot with one clove garlic and one cup of grape juice. Drink this tonic once a week. It is such a potent cleanser that you will notice your bowels become more active as your body flushes out the toxins.
Celery can help tone the body and can help cure bloating since it is a diuretic. Just mix two sticks of celery, one carrot and one cup of mineral water.
If you are tired and sluggish, boost your body’s iron reserves with carrot and lettuce. You can add a shot of wheatgrass for even more energy and anti-oxidants.
