Hi you hear about detox frequently and special detox diets, books, supplements and foods but when you think about it drinking green smoothies everyday is your easy daily liver/kidney/feel happy healthy detox.
To give your gsmoothie some extra detox lift you can use tea infusions in yr green smoothie instead of water- don’t you love that word- infusion… So thinking about the liver and kidneys I made a cup of roasted ground dandelion (using the teabag) in a plunger and kept it in the fridge overnight.
I love roasted ground dandelion with honey or agave nectar- the roots contain inulin, which nourishes beneficial gut bacteria and stimulates liver function. I blended the tea infusion with an orange and ginger/lemon/lime for the green smoothie base for the greens and fruit.
Cranberry juice is good too and all citrus esp lemons and limes- vitamin C is a great detoxer- that’s why it is really good to have lemon juice in warm water first thing every morning. Magnesium is an essential ingredient for detoxing and one of the best places to find this is-yes-dark leafy greens. It’s one of the key nutrients that your liver needs to manufacture enzymes for toxin breakdown.
Greens like watercress, rocket, chard, kale, spinach and dandelion greens all provide chlorophyll -all naturally detoxing with a flood of oxygen to your blood.
