3 POWER LIQUIDS TO AMPLIFY YOUR JUICE CLEANSE
1. Fermented Drinks 

If you feel like your bowel movements have slowed or have come to a halt while on a juice cleanse, it may be time to add some healthy probiotics to the mix.

Liquids like apple cider vinegar, coconut water kefir, and kombucha are all fermented drinks rich in probiotics. You can stock up on these beverages at your local health food store, or opt to make this delicious drink at home: 

Apple Cider Elixir Recipe

Serves 1

Ingredients:

1 ounce apple cider vinegar

5 ounces of filtered water 

1 teaspoon honey, maple syrup, or agave

Directions:

Combine ingredients in a 12-ounce glass over ice and stir well.

2. Spiced Water

Though spices make your foods taste better, they can also be added to your water to give you more energy and help your body eliminate toxins.

We suggest trying the following combinations: 

  • Cinnamon: Cinnamon is an excellent blood sugar stabilizer, changing the way your body regulates sugar. Drop a cinnamon stick into a refillable water bottle and sip throughout the day for an added energy boost.
  • Cayenne pepper: Adding a dash of cayenne pepper to your water helps curb hunger, stimulate circulation (they open your capillaries), and aid in digestion.
3. HERBAL TEAS

Teas can make you feel warm and cozy, but they can also serve another useful purpose. When it comes to detox amplification, a few herbs can help get the job done:

  • Ginger helps remove toxic buildups in your colon and liver, aids in digestion, and helps encourage circulation.
  • Burdock tea is a powerful diuretic that helps purge toxins through your urine.
  • Lemongrass and milk thistle helps support your liver, your body’s most powerful organ of detoxification.

Try this simple, but powerful detox tea: 

Serves 1

Ingredients:

6 thin slices of ginger

1-2 lemon slices, squeezed

1 cup boiling water

Honey (optional)

Place the ginger in a small mug and add the boiling water. Allow it to steep for 5 to 10 minutes. Add lemon slice. Add honey to taste, if desired.
