Blood Purifier

 

  • 1 whole beet
  • 2 golden delicious apples
  • 2 red delicious apples
  • 2 cups of grapes (millinara or rosanella)
  • 4-5 leaves of kale
  • 6 stalks of celery
  • 2 inch ginger (optional)

Juice the fruits and veggies in a high-powered juicer. And drink to your health! NOTE: You can reduce the amount of beet, if you’re not used to its taste. But beets contain powerful phytonutrients and antioxidants, particularly betalains and vulgaxanthin, which support detoxification process and anti-inflammatory response. Nature has a way of telling us what it is for. Its color and taste almost resembles to that of the blood. And it is indeed good for the blood!
