Beetroot & Apple Juice

< Back to FOOD AS MEDICINE page

This is a great cleansing juice specifically for the bowels and kidneys, moving the toxins out of these organs. It is also good for the digestion of fatty foods which can cause high cholesterol and weaken the liver. I drink this if I have had a particularly heavy night eating rich foods and drinking alcohol.

BEETROOT It stimulates and strengthens the bowel, moving toxins out of the system. Betaine in beetroot aids fat metabolism by converting cholesterol into bile salts. The red coloured constituents contain anti-carcinogens.

APPLES are fabulous cleansers, as they eliminate excess fluid and toxins from the body by acting on the kidneys. They contain malic acid and tartaric acids, which aid the digestion of rich, fatty foods that can weaken the liver.

Serves 1
3 small beetroots, chopped into chunks * 2 large carrots, topped and chopped into chunks * 2 apples, cut into wedges

Press alternate chunks of beetroot, carrot and apple through a juicer. Stir and drink immediately.
