Kris’s Beauty Detox Elixir
You can make this at home if you have a juicer, or you can have it prepared at a health-food store. I find it helps to give this list of ingredients to the person doing the juicing for easier ordering.
Ingredients for Detox Elixir
- 1 3-inch wedge of cabbage
- ½ large beet
- 1 large carrot
- 1 unpeeled lemon
- 1 small jalapeño (remove seeds)
- A couple bunches of dark greens (parsley, spinach, kale, watercress, etc.)
*A thumb sized piece of ginger root can be used if you do not want the jalapeño.
Detox Elixir Directions
- Scrub, don’t peel, your produce.
- Cut everything up
- Run it all through a juicer
The benefits of this detox drink are out of this world
Cabbage heals the stomach lining. Beet is a terrific blood cleanser and wonderful for the skin. Dark greens are the ultimate detoxifiers and bone builders. Carrots are loaded with skin, vision, and body-healing carotenoids. Lemon alkalizes the body, and the peel is loaded with bioflavoids. Ginger improves circulation and digestion. Jalapeno increases circulation.
