Anti-Inflammatory Juice: Remove Toxins and Feel Energized

This recipe is actually a version of a juice reccommended by my Doc! Recently, he designed a specific diet for me to acheive the following goals:

  • Detox unwanted metals and toxins
  • Dissolve lymphatic waste build up
  • Relieve my liver and other organs that have been working overtime
  • Promote Anti-Inflammatory super-hero foods to alieveate effects from RA and/or Crohn’s Disease.

I don’t know about you, but BAM! That’s some powerful s*hit!……and I love it!

Whether you’re detoxing or not, this juice recipe is beneficial to your overall health and wellness. Adding in this juice (or any other) to your diet regimine would be a fantastic way to boost your: immunity, bone health, and your body’s digestion capabilities.

Ok, let’s talk liquid love deets! Beets and ginger act as powerhouse anti-inflammatories and cilantro is a super antioxidant; fighting free radicals and protecting our body against diseases!

The betalain pigments present in beets have repeatedly been shown to support activity in our body’s Phase 2 detoxification process. Phase 2 is the metabolic step that our cells use to hook activated, unwanted toxic substances up with small nutrient groups. This “hook up” process effectively neutralizes the toxins and makes them sufficiently water-soluble for excretion in the urine. (source)

Anti-Inflammatory Juice Recipe:

  • 3 carrots
  • 2 beets
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 2 beet green leaves
  • 2 handfuls of cilantro
  • 1 small cube of ginger
  • 1 small lemon wedge

Make sure to wash veggies well ~ especially those beets. Dirty lil suckers! If you’ve never peeled ginger {use the back of the spoon}, check out this how-to video here. Chop it up and juice!

So far, I’m feelin pretty good. I believe in ‘adding in‘ more of the good stuff we need (like juice!). So, you don’t have to be on a cleanse to drink your juice. Adding in one juice per week….or heck, one per day — will definitely benefit you {just see the facts above!!}. You might even find that you feel the ‘cleansing’ effects of juice. If you experience any achyness or cold-like symptoms coming on, know that this is normal and happens with some individuals. Think of it as your body trying to rid itself of any stuck gunk. 🙂

If you have any health concerns or chronic health conditions, please consult with your Doc first. Remember that everybody has their own bioindividuality and diet/nutrition needs. For example, this recipe doesn’t have kale or any other leafy greens because my Doc said right now, they’re too detoxing for me. If this doesn’t apply to you ~ feel free to add in greens!
