Ginger Beet Juice

Hey guys! This juice recipe is great to aid your body in it’s natural detox processes. The highlighted ingredient is the BEET. These root veggies have betaine, which helps the liver cells eliminate toxins; pectin, a fiber which clears the toxins that have been removed from the liver so they don’t reincorporate back into the body; and betalains, pigments with high anti-inflammatory properties to encourage the detoxification process.

No need to go on a special cleanse or detox. Your body handles that every day when it’s functioning properly! Be sure to add plenty of whole foods and water in your diet to aid in the process that’s already set up to keep you clean 🙂
