Citrus for Cleansing
We already discussed how much your liver loves lemons and the daily dose of lemon water, but we can’t ignore the other citrus fruits as they are beneficial for your body, too.
The category of citrus fruits consists of lemons, limes, oranges & grapefruit.
They are a rich source of vitamin C – the ultimate cleansing vitamin. It helps to convert toxins into a non-toxic form so they are easily flushed from your body.
Some new ways to use citrus fruits are: adding a squeeze of lemon or lime juice to your water, mixing citrus juice with olive oil as a salad dressing, and squeezing some fresh orange and lime juice over a variety of crisp, stir-fried vegetables.
Grapefruits make a great snack, and adding an orange to your next smoothie is a yummy change-up. Grapefruits are high in both vitamin C and antioxidants and it increases the natural cleansing processes of the liver. A half of a grapefruit or a small glass of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice will help boost the production of liver detoxiﬁcation enzymes that help ﬂush out carcinogens and other toxins.
12-16oz of water
1/2 lemon juice
1/2 lime juice
1/2 grapefruit juice
8 mint leaves
This will aid the removal of the toxins from your body. It will also help improve your energy levels during the day.
