One simple and easy way to get detoxifying nutrients into your diet and help your body get back to its optimal health, is with this simple green juice recipe.
Detoxifying and alkalising are important processes for your body, as they help your blood and liver to rid themselves of toxins and foreign bodies. When detoxing, the body eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system, and skin, which allows us to regain our fitness and health much faster.
Alkalising is also an important process, as you must balance out the pH levels of your body with alkalising foods. This helps to balance the acidity in your body from foods such as heavy carbs and sugar.
This detoxifying green juice is particularly powerful thanks to one ingredients - the freeze-dried greens powder, Bare Greens.
The organic fruit and vegetables in Bare Greens, including chlorella, spirulina, matcha, spinach and wheatgrass are freshly harvested, then freeze-dried straight away, which removes the water content from the greens and locks in the nutrients. What we are left with is a concentrated greens powder that is bursting with potent vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, and phytonutrients.
