Three Simple Liver-Detoxing Drinks That Flush Toxins From Your Liver and Eliminate Belly Fat
The Colorful Detox Drink
- 1 Bell Pepper
- 3 Carrots
- 1 Medium Cucumber
- Half a Lemon
- 1 Apple
Simply juice all of the ingredients and drink fast, before the antioxidants get destroyed! This detox drink contains large amounts of vitamin c, vitamin a, a nice amount of minerals, vital for a healthy skin & powerful fat and toxin-flushing antioxidants, contained in the apple and lemon. It does taste a bit strange, but is definitely not unpleasant. Drinking a glass or two a day is extremely effective for cleansing your liver, improving your skin complexion and generally improving your health & energy levels.
The Green Tea Citrus Drink
Another juice that has amazing detox power!
- Half a cup of green tea, cooled down
- The Juice of Half a Lemon
- 1 Banana Blended In
This is a bit more difficult to prepare, as it requires juicing, blending AND tea brewing! But it’s worth it – the EGCG in green tea acts together with the lemon juice to rapidly detoxify your body. EGCG is absorbed much, much better in an acidic environment and when combined with minerals (the potassium from the banana). Another huge benefits is that the juice tastes very nice – you can almost get addicted to it.
The Golden Liver-Flushing Drink
- Half a teaspoon of turmeric
- A bit of ginger
- The Juice of half a lemon
- Half a cup of water
This juice not only flushes toxins from your liver, but it also prevents gallstones and cleans your bowels. It also settles down your stomach after a big meal. Turmeric is a very effective liver-detoxifying agent and is used as a hangover remedy in some countries. Again, combining it with lemon juice makes it even more effective. Unfortunately, this drink doesn’t taste that well. You can definitely improve it’s taste by adding a banana, but don’t add too much, as the sugar from the banana will slow down the cleansing action of the turmeric.
The King: The Deep Detox Red Smoothie
If you’re looking for a potent smoothie detox, that will rapidly flush fat from your body, consider the four-ingredient smoothie recipe, explained in the above video. You can get pretty amazing results from it, especially considering how simple it is.
As we all know, visceral (belly) fat is almost impossible to get rid of through exercise and caloric restriction, as it is not stored by your body for energy, but rather as a result of toxic buildup in the gut and liver. Your liver is your main ‘metabolic organ’ – it metabolizes glucose and virtually all food that is absorbed by your stomach goes first through the hepatic vein and then into the liver. This is why you can read a lot of stories from people that completely changed their life and lost 50+ pounds quickly after going on a long juice fast. Fortunately, getting those same results doesn’t require a long juice fast commitment, if you know what you are doing!
