Once you make the decision to detox, you realize there are certain things that must be eliminated as well as added to your diet. Good detox juices are a must. To keep your intake well rounded, use a combination of fruit and vegetables juices. If you have the time to use a blender/juicer and can puree your own fruits in vegetables, then that is to your benefit.
There are a variety of combinations your can use to keep things interesting. You can use store bought products or make your own juice at home.
Starting with the citrus family, an orange, grapefruit, and lime combination is a definite winner as a detox juice. Both of these fruits are great for the immune system and loaded with vitamin C.
Mango, pineapple and lemon juice combined together are a great tropical combination and are both good for the digestive system.
Another great tropical choice for a detox juice is cantaloupe, honey dew melon, papaya and white grapes juice together. This is another great fruit juice combination that benefits the kidneys. Garnish with a twist of lime.
Lemon juice, white grapes, strawberries, and apple (Granny Smith preferred) are another good detox juice and fruit combination benefiting the kidneys as well as the liver and skin.
The detox juice combine of strawberries, bananas, and peaches (White Peaches preferred) is a great combination. This is a great potassium source and is good for the skin.
Mix up the fruit and vegetables by combining a fresh apple pear, and a carrot together. Simply juice together for a great detox juice.
Apples, oranges, lemon, and carrots combined are an excellent detox juice and a wonderful source of beta-carotene, Vitamin C, and a natural relief for arthritic pain.
Apples and red cabbage juiced together serve not only as a detox juice, and diuretic, but also as a natural antiviral and antibacterial source.
Spinach and carrots as a rich vegetable detox juice are an excellent source of antioxidants.
Lettuce and tomato goes together well not only in a salad, but works wonders as a detox juice. Loaded with nutrients and great for digestive issues, juice together and add a little bit of cucumber and lemon juice to freshen up the taste.
Lemons and limes with water are one of the simplest and most effect detox juices available. It is a great source of Vitamin C, and is great for the skin. It also purifies the kidneys and liver.
All of these juices serve as a source of detox. Some people choose to do a complete juice detox over a period of days. Before you decide to do any type of detox, please consult with your physician, particularly if you are being treated for a serious medical condition. Deciding to go on a juice only fast is a bit extreme and should be done with caution. You can always incorporate detox juices in with a healthy diet, and by limiting your intake of red meat and pork. Aim for food high in Omega 3 such as fish. Eat lots of beans, and try to stay away from alcohol and caffeinated drinks while going through your detoxification process.
If you are taking prescriptions regularly due to an illness or condition, it is advisable to always check with your physician before abruptly changing your normal dietary habits. Any type of fasting should be done with caution and only after having consulted a physician.
