Liver Cleansing Green Juice

Jump to Recipe

It’s that time of year for juice cleanses, and this Liver Cleansing Green Juice is one of my favorites. After the greasy foods in November and December, the liver can always use a little help.
This Liver detox green juice is packed with goodness. It’s loaded with Vitamins and minerals to help your immune system, boost your metabolism and help your liver to detox.
And best of all, it does all those amazing things and still manages to taste good.

This is one of my favorite juices when I do intermittent fasting. Because it’s loaded with health benefits, barely contains any calories and boosts the metabolism I find it to be the ideal breakfast juice for intermittent fasting.

If you’re a licorice lover like me, then you’re in luck. Licorice has been used by indigenous people for hundreds of years as a natural remedy. It helps the digestive system, and soothes gastrointestinal problems. It actually helps repait the stomach lining and restore balance – which is especially great if you have suffered from heartburn or stomach ulcers.

Disclaimer:

If you suffer from high blood pressure you should leave out the liqorice powder. Licorice has been known to increase blood pressure and may reduce the effect of any blood pressure medication.

The amazing properties of Licorice

  • Repairs stomach lining and restores digestive balance
  • Reduces itching skin, psoriasis, swelling and infections – can also be used in face masks as it has great anti-aging properties
  • Studies show that licorice appears to increase your metabolism and targets fat loss
  • New studies find that licorice may actually help keep your teeth healthy

  • Packed full of Vitamin C, minerals and a bunch of difficult to get other vitamins

  • Almost no calories – you actually burn more calories by drinking this juice than it contains
  • Licorice contains high amounts of the anti-inflammatory and immune system boosting glycyrrhizic acid

Kale is one of the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat. It belongs to the cabbage family and is a cruciferous vegetable like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. It’s a great source of vitamins and minerals, particularly the hard to come by Vitamin K and Vitamin A.
