Juices And Detoxifying Drinks
We are often asked about the best liquids to consume while fasting. Here is a list of some of our favourite detoxing drinks.
Coconut water is one of the purest liquids known to humankind, with numerous health benefits. It is packed with natural electrolytes, along with sodium, potassium, and magnesium. Drinking coconut water assists in the breakdown and elimination of all forms of kidney and bladder stones. It is also renowned for its ability to calm nervous and emotional imbalances.
Coconut water also contains lauric acid, which gives it anti-microbial properties and makes it suitable for the treatment of some liver ailments, such as hepatitis. It’s also an excellent source of glucose, which supplies the body with energy, B complex vitamins, which replenish worn-out cells and tissues, and vitamin C, which boosts the body’s immune system.
Carrot juice is sometimes known as the ‘miracle juice’ due to its plethora of health benefits. It is one of the richest natural sources of vitamin A, which play a vital role in maintaining the health of the mucous membranes which line all the cavities of the body. Vitamin A is of exceptional benefit in aiding the liver’s function and in reducing bile and fat in the liver.
Carrot juice is also a wonderful source of many other vitamins, especially those of the B complex. It is also rich in minerals, notably calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, chlorine, sulfur, and iron. Drink carrot juice for good prenatal health, clear eyesight, strong bones and teeth, healthy liver, strong nails, and lustrous skin and hair. It is believed that carrot juice can also help in cancer prevention, due to its anti-oxidant properties.
For even more powerful effects, combine carrot juice with other potent juices such as beetroot, apple, or celery. For a vitamin and mineral boost, you can also add spirulina.
Juices from Leafy greens are excellent sources of vitamin A and chlorophyll and good sources of vitamin C with some calcium, iron and potassium.
Green juices contain anti-cancer and antioxidant benefits. The chlorophyll it contains levels out blood sugar, cleans out blood cells and is one of the best juices you can put into your body. It is highly cleansing, gives energy, and contains essential nutrients to our well-being.
Add leafy greens to your carrot, beet or apple juice to get the most out of your juices while detoxing.
Lemongrass is a wondrous and multi-functional herb, known for its calming effect and its ability to relieve insomnia and stress. Studies have shown that lemongrass has antibacterial and antifungal properties, and can reduce blood pressure. Lemongrass aids in the detoxification of the liver, kidneys, pancreas, bladder, and digestive tract.
The litany of benefits ascribed to lemongrass goes on. It inhibits microbial and bacterial growth in the body, both internally and externally. It cuts through uric acid, cholesterol, excess fats and other toxins in the body, while stimulating digestion and blood circulation. It is also believed to alleviate gastroenteritis, act as a muscle and tissue toner, and improve the skin, protecting against acne and pimples. Finally, it removes gas from the intestines, and prevents further gas formation.
