Liver Detox Smoothie Recipe

Liver Detox Smoothie is extremely refreshing, it has a warming spiciness from the ginger, a sweetness from the beet and a sourness from the lemon. It is one my of favourite smoothies from the Holistic in the City 21 Day Smoothie Guide because it is not a super sweet smoothie. Liver Detox Smoothie is the perfect smoothie to help you recover from a night out on the town because it promotes the detoxification process in the body.

Health Benefits of Beets

I love beets, they are such a beautiful color and have a delicious sweet earthy flavour. They are also bursting with nutrients that offer a multitude of health benefits.

  • Beets get their vibrant colour from phytonutrients called betalains that help with phase 2 liver detox
  • Beets are high in antioxidants that are not usually found in other fruits and vegetables
  • Beets contain anti-inflammatory compounds that have been studied within the context of heart disease
  • Beets are high in a particular type of fiber that provides support for the digestive tract and contributes towards the prevention of colon cancer
  • Beets are an excellent source of folate, the B vitamin that is very important in the prevention of birth defects
  • Beets also contain high amounts of manganese, potassium and copper
