This liver cleansing tonic is delicious, sour and intense…
A combination of lemon, grapefruit, parsley and turmeric…this will wake you up and put a pep in your step in no time!
Not for the faint-hearted, this can be consumed as a morning beverage before anything else.
The ingredients each have powerful healing properties that help to stimulate the natural liver-cleansing process.
Using the whole fruit in this blend, means you get the added fibre to slow and improve the digestive process.
Both lemon and grapefruit are full of rich antioxidants and vitamins, making them the perfect immune boosters! They also work to help flush out unwanted toxins through the bloodstream. Turmeric has the powerful compound curcumin present which works as an anti-inflammatory master and detoxifier.
Parsley is a natural diuretic making it a powerful cleansing herb, it’s also high in silica making it great for the skin, hair and nails.
Notes: If you don’t consume grapefruit, you could switch it out for orange or mandarins for a less-intense version. Also feel free to add a sweetener such as Manuka honey to lessen the sour flavour.
