Out of all the organs in the body, one of the most important organs that perform a wide range of functions is liver. From regulating fat, protein and carbohydrate in the blood to producing and excreting bile and storing essential vitamins, liver plays a crucial role. According to Consultant Nutritionist Dr. Rupali Datta, the only organ that cleanses itself is liver. Whatever we consume is detoxified by the liver; hence, it is imperative to feed healthy food to the body so that the liver doesn't exert.
According to the book, 'Healing Foods' by DK Publishing, "The liver needs all the help it can get- it has the job of breaking down and eliminating every dietary and environmental toxin in our bodies." If you wish to boost your liver health, you can bring this 4-ingredient juice to your rescue. Made using carrots, apples, grapefruit and mint, this healthy juice acts as a cleansing drink for the liver and can help stimulate the natural detoxifying processes in the liver.
Each ingredient plays its own role in boosting liver's health. Grapefruit is a powerhouse of nutrients. It contains enzymes that help the liver break down toxins more efficiently. Carrot's carotenoid content helps prevent oxidative damage inside the body. Mint has decongestant properties and the triterpenoids present in the skin of apples have potent protective activity for liver cells.
This juice not only has health benefiting properties, but is also quite appetising as well. You can have it in breakfast and give your day a healthy start.
