ABC Juice | Fruit -Vegetable Juice | Miracle Drink | Liver Detox

Fresh fruits and vegetable juices are full of powerful enzymes,antioxidants and nutrients that you can feel within minutes of having them.This is one of the quickest ways to deliver nutrients to important organs like liver.A healthy liver is a vital element of good health,yet most of us seldom pay any attention to this important organ.This ABC juice is a recognized liver tonic and rejuvenates that helps to ease the burden of the master cleaning organ and improve the way you feel.Hence,this juice increases the rate that you process the toxin in your body and helps cleanse the liver.
  • The famous saying '' An apple a day,keeps the doctor away'' holds very true.Apart from the important health benefits of apple,they are general detoxifier and are rich in pectin.Pectin binds to the toxin intestines as they are digested and helps safely excrete them before your liver has to deal.
  • Beets or beetroot are rich source of phytonutrients like betanin have anti inflammatory and anti oxidant properties,coupled with a stimulating effect on various detoxifying pathways in your body and especially the liver.Betanin promotes bile secretion and thereby improves digestion.It is also proved to regenerate liver cells and fatty deposits caused by years of alcohol consumption.
  • Carrots are a rich source of pro vitamin A beta carotene and alpha carotene for protecting your body from radical damage.These nutrients are converted to vitamin A when needed and actually stored in the liver cells.Carrot juice is highly alkalizing to your body and helps flush the toxins in your liver and improves your eyes and skin.They are also a rich source of vitamin C,B and K and various important minerals.
  • Spinach when combined with carrot juice effectively restores the bleeding gum disorder caused by vitamin C deficiency.The alkaline minerals in spinach are essential for cleaning out the tissue and maintaining the alkalinity of blood.They are also rich in iron and so regenerates,reactivates the blood cells.The anti inflammatory properties help improve conditions in people suffering from osteo and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Cucumber helps to regulate the blood pressure because of its minerals.They are excellent source of silica and helps in proper construction of connective tissue like bone,muscle,cartilage and ligaments.They also have alkalizing properties thereby reducing acidity.Cucumber juice is diuretic and so encourages the excretion of waste through urine.they bare excellent in reducing dark spots,puffy eyes,dark circles and other skin conditions.
  • Lime is a rich source of vitamin C and also helps prevent oxidization of juice.
  • Ginger stimulates overall digestion and helps protect your liver from oxidative damage.


Drinking this juice and detox a couple of days/a week or a month improves the overall health and you might observe remarkable difference in your energy and mood levels.This improves the overall liver function and boosts immunity,tones up skin and general health.The juice should be taken empty stomach early morning and preferably one hour before breakfast for best results.We usually take it once a week but you can always take it daily as well.The juice tastes mildly sweet and doesn't require an additional sugar.But if you really are a sweet tooth,then prefer adding honey instead of sugar.Try & hope it improves your general health.



Ingredients
apple 1 medium sized
beet 1 medium  sized
carrots 2 medium  sized
cucumber 1 medium
spinach 1 handful
lime half of one or 1
ginger 2" piece
water 1 cup or less



Method
  • I prefer to blanch the spinach in hot water  and salt for 10 minutes.But you can always add it fresh.
  • Wash and peel the carrots,beets,apples,cucumber.(peeling is individual preference,you can add just like that too).
  • Chop them small.Add beets,ginger and carrots to juicer or blender and blend until crushed fine,then add in chopped apples,cucumber,spinach leaves and lime.Add a cup of water to blend it fine.
  • Strain the juice and enjoy !!
 Yields 2 cups


NOTES
* Straining the juice discards the fiber so if you wish can drink it just like that without straining.
* If you don't have cucumber or spinach then omit and make with the rest.Works fine.
* There is no fixed quantity as such to make this juice.You can always increase the beets ,carrots or apples as per your preference.We do it this way and it tastes good.


Have you ever wondered why kids keep running and jumping even after a tired school day ?? The answer is simple and straight that they have a toxin free liver and with growing age,the liver gets all toxic deposits.I hope this post is good enough for a good thought to enjoy this drink !!
