With spring cleaning in full bloom and summer right around the corner, what better time than now to rid your body of toxins and impurities? I don’t know what it is about spring, but it makes me want to clean everything and start fresh. Then it got me thinking, shouldn’t I be detoxing my body too? That was when all of the crazy juicing started.
This wonder elixir has many beneficial properties including detoxifying the liver and kidneys and lowering inflammation. The mixture of beetroot, apple, pear, ginger and lemon is chock full of phytonutrients, carontenoids and antioxidants, which pack a powerful punch of nutrition.
Beets are rich in dietary fiber, vitamin C, magnesium, iron, copper and phosphorus. They are a natural detoxifier and blood purifier. Beetroot is also rich in a variety of nutrients that are important for the immune system to work with full efficiency – as beets encourage the production of antibodies that fight against disease or infection inside our body. Beetroot is also rich in iron and that is why it boosts red blood cells with required iron and facilitates the supply of oxygen towards the cells making our body healthy and young.
