Modern unhealthy diets and polluted environment cause toxins to build up in our bodies, which is why a detoxification program is so important. Detoxification improves circulation, eliminates wastes, and refuels the body. Many detoxification programs involve lengthy fasts, which can be dangerous and difficult. The truth is you dont have to fall back on these measures to detoxify your body; simply drinking a juice with detoxifying properties can be highly effective in keeping your body healthy.
When most people think of juices, they think of fruits, but the truth is that many detoxifying juices contain a combination of fruits and vegetables. Some juicers are only capable of creating juice from citrus plants, so be sure to bear this in mind when purchasing your juicer. If you are interested in making detoxifying juices, you need to get a juicer that can handle fruits and vegetables.
Once you have the proper juicer, begin your detoxifying process with the following:
Tropical Paradise Juice
This is a great juice to drink in the morning, as it helps loosen digestive buildup that occurred overnight. It also contains a lot of sweet fruits, so it tastes great!
1 medium ripe papaya, peeled, seeded, and sliced
1 small pineapple, peeled, cored, and sliced
1 (1-in.) piece peeled fresh ginger
1 medium kiwi, peeled
1/2 cup fresh-young-coconut water (stir in after juicing)
Antioxidants are one of the best detoxifying agents, and all the ingredients in a Mango Twist have large amounts of antioxidants. This is also a great way to build muscle after a workout.
Glass of blueberries
3 or 4 middle-sized strawberries
This juice contains vitamins A, B, C and E all of which help eliminate toxins. It also contains Lutein a chemical that fights aging.
