The main detoxifying organ of the body is the liver. From time to time it can become overburdened depending on your diet, environment, and activity level. When an excess amount of toxins become too heavy for your liver to handle, toxic substances will be stored in the tissues and this will reduce the quality of your health. Use a liver detox to clean your liver. This will help in revving up the performance of the natural detox ability of your body.
DETOX YOUR WAY TO HEALTH
When attempting to clean your liver, you need to give your body nutrition that it can digest easily. You do not want your body to exhaust its energy on digestion; however, you certainly need to maintain a reasonable balance of electrolytes, nutrients, and antioxidants to give support during the detox process. Juicing is a great way to aid the cleansing of the liver without interfering with the natural healing process of the body. Below is a powerful juice cocktail you can prepare while the cleansing process is ongoing.

Reasons why these Ingredients were chosen?
Apples: They are high in pectin and contain the chemicals needed by the body to cleanse toxins from the digestive tract. This makes it easier for the liver to handle the toxic load.
Beets and Carrots: These are very high in beta-carotene and plant-flavonoids. They help improve and stimulate all liver functions.
Lemons: These contain a high amount of vitamin C which help the body synthesize toxic materials into substances that can be absorbed by water. The liver is stimulated when freshly squeezed lemon is taken in the morning.
Ginger Root: This is useful for constipation, flatulence, bloating and other digestive disorders. Ginger has been found to be effective for handling stress-related ulcers.
Kale: This can be eaten raw, juiced or cooked. They are very high in chlorophyll and absorb toxins from the bloodstream. They also have a unique ability to neutralize pesticides, chemicals, and metals.
