Juicing  vegetables is a great way to get lots of nutrients into your body in a hurry. Take this detox juice here, made with apple, beetroot, broccoli, cucumber, carrot, celery, lime, ginger and spinach (not pictured).

Beetroot contains vitamins b, c and folic acid as well as the minerals chlorine, iron, manganese, calcium, magnesium and potassium. Beetroot helps to cleanse the liver, improves red blood cell production as reducing the build of cholesterol in the arteries. The potassium helps to strengthen the heart. Beetroot also contains iodine, which helps to improve thyroid function.

Broccoli helps to lower blood pressure as well as detoxify the liver. Carrots contain beta carotene which is converted to retinol in the body, essential to vision. Celery is extremely alkalising to the body and contains a compound called polyacetylene which helps to relieve inflammatory conditions including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, asthma and bronchitis.

 

Cucumber is a natural diuretic and helps to reduce fluid retention. Cucumber is also important for health hair, skin and nails. Ginger is a natural antibiotic and decongestant. Ginger has also been shown to reduce nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Spinach is loaded with iron and helps to prevent anaemia as well as supporting liver detoxification. Finally the lime in this detox juice helps to alkalise and eliminate toxins from the body. So all in all, a powerful and nutritious detox juice that can be used as a delicious breakfast or between meals when you need a boost.
