With each new season, enjoying a colon cleanse is a great way to maintain good health.
Cleansing the colon is a fantastic way to purge toxins from the body. The cleansing also provides us with increased energy, a boosted immune system, and keeps us going strong as the weather changes.
The big three of colon cleansing fruits and veggies are carrots, apples, and cucumbers. Add a lemon for a liver tonic and you’re in cleansing and health business.
All Season Colon Cleanser
- 1 red apple
- 1 medium size carrot
- ½ medium size cucumber
- 1 stalk of celery
- 1 8oz glass of cold purified water
- 1 tbs of honey or agave or 1 tbs apple cider vinegar
- Juice from one lemon
Juice the apple, carrot, celery, cucumber and lemon in the juicer. Slurry them together with the cold water. Add honey or agave to taste. Drink immediately, and preferably, do it first thing in the morning. Or alternatively, dice the veggies and fruits and mix this all up in your blender.
Veggie and Fruit Cleansing Benefits
Apple: The apple’s skin contains pectin which assists in the removal of toxin. Pectin also prohibits the protein matter in your G.I. tract from putrefying. Apples also help regulate blood sugar levels.
Carrot: Ease inflammation of the colon. Carrots contain beta-carotene, a great nutrient for the eyes.
Cucumber: Contains an enzyme called erepsin which digests protein. Cucumbers have a high water content which soothes and eases the digestive tract and colon.
Celery: Flushes the kidneys, liver, pancreas, and gallbladder.
Lemon: A natural antiseptic, the acidity of lemon juice destroys harmful bacteria
Apple Cider Vinegar: Prevents the formation of kidney and gall bladder stones.
Honey: Anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial. Boosts the immune system and provides increased energy.
