The lymphatic system is like a second circulatory system for the body - it helps aid in fluid recovery, immunity and lipid absorption. It is the body's internal drainage system which is designed to rid your blood of acidic and toxic waste. When the lymphatic system isn't functioning properly it can lead to issues such as fibromyalgia, MS, chronic fatigue syndrome, aches and pains, bloating and poor digestion, cellulite, fat deposits and obesity.
- 1 cup organic strawberries
- 2 cups ripe pineapple
- 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1 cup leafy greens (romaine, spinach, kale, etc.)
- Optional: Steep 1 tbsp. nettle leaves in 1 cup of water and add this to the smoothie mix once cooled. Nettle is incredibly useful in helping cleanse our blood of toxins, helping to relieve some of the pressure on the lymphatic system to cleanse the blood all by itself.
Put all of the ingredients above in a blender (I recommend the Vitamix), and pulse blend for 30 seconds until well incorporated. Enjoy!
