Healthy Instant Detox: The Toxin Flush

Anthony Clavien healthy toxin flushThere are a variety of foods currently in season that all have detoxifying properties. Instead of adding a few detoxifying fruits and vegetables to your diet throughout your day, maximize your detox with the following power recipe that will help your body to naturally rid toxins in the blood and liver and soothe your stomach as well.

In a juicer, blend 6 large Fuji or Gala apples (quartered) with 4 cups baby spinach leaves, 1 bunch of parsley, 2 inches of fresh ginger with the skin removed, and add juice from one lemon into the juice.

By combining fruits and vegetables, the juice blend provides all the health benefits of vegetables, while taking on the sweet flavor of the fruit. The baby spinach is packed with antioxidants and helps keep bones strong and healthy, while the parsley helps flush out excess fluid from the body thus supporting kidney function and can help control blood pressure.

The detox is especially useful if you’re feeling sick, or have morning sickness due to pregnancy, as ginger’s anti-vomiting action has been shown to be very useful in reducing the nausea of pregnancy, even in the most severe form, hyperemesis gravidum, a condition which usually requires hospitalization. Ingredients from the toxin flush can help aid in arthritis-related pains, build your immune system, and lower your risk for colorectal cancer.

The detox juice blend makes about two servings, or 4 ¼ cups worth depending on the size of your apples and is a great way to consume your vitamins and minerals while doing something positive for your body. Switching out a meal once a week for this toxin flush will help keep your body running effectively, and help to promote your health.
