These vegetables improve digestions, cleanse your intestines, removes toxins from your liver, calms excessive appetite, and contains the abundance of silicon, iron, chlorophyll, vitamins, enzymes, and minerals to give you energy while detoxing your liver. A healthy liver will produce sufficient bile to break down fat and remove toxins from your body.

Beware of Fruit Sugar Content In Your Green Juice

Although natural sugar from fruits contains some enzymes and minerals that don’t upset the body’s minerals balance as much as chemically processed sweeteners such as white sugar, you should limit the number of fruits you eat and include in your juice daily. If you are diabetic, insulin resistant, have thyroid problems, or kidney stones, you should consult with your doctor before including high glycemic fruits.

High sugar fruits such as mangoes, pineapples, pears, kiwi will affect your blood sugar and insulin. Similarly, if you have thyroid and kidney issues, you may want to avoid cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, bok choy, cauliflower, kale, and cabbage as they may because of other health problems. Cruciferous vegetables are great vegetables to use in your choose as they contain liver detox enzymes to boost the liver ability to remove toxins from our body. Great for the liver detox but may cause health problems if you have thyroid and kidney issues so please be mindful and seek advice from your doctor first.
Drinking green juice should be a supplement to your weight loss plan. It should not replace eating wholesome food including fruits and vegetables. You could have a green juice for breakfast, a second green juice for lunch followed by healthy snacks of nuts and fruits such as bananas and avocados, and eat a healthy dinner.
