2 Healing Juices for Gallbladder and Liver Cleansing

The gallbladder and liver are two very important detox organs which should never be over-looked. They help to eliminate and flush toxins from the body and are heavily involved in the digestive process.  Your liver must produce at least 1.5 litres of bile per day in order to maintain a healthy digestive system and send nutrients to all of the cells in your body. The gallbladder's role is to concentrate and store bile, so when we do liver cleanses, we should also target the gallbladder too!

These juices contain ingredients that will help stimulate and cleanse the gallbladder and liver. Find out why below!

Grapefruit: cleanses the liver due to high flavonoid levels. Flavonoids help stimulate the liver, improve insulin levels and metabolize fat better.
Bitter Greens: stimulate digestion and increase bile flow to help the liver flush toxins more efficiently.
Lemon: maintain good digestion and stimulate bile flow. Also very high in vitamin C to help eradicate free-radicals and ease the workload on the liver.
Apples: the more sour or bitter the apple, the better it is for the gallbladder & liver (which is why I suggest using granny smith apples in these recipes) - the fiber in apples called pectin help reduce cholesterol levels which contribute to gallstone formation.
Beets: excellent cleansers of the blood! Help to cleanse and tone the liver and purify the blood. 

*Turmeric and ginger are also two healing foods which I never leave out of my juices. They cure almost every ailment!

Deep Red:
- 3 beets, peeled
- 2 granny smith apples
- 3 inch piece ginger root
- 1 cup dandelion greens
- 1 lemon, peeled if non-organic, or, peel left on if organic

Cleansing Green: 
- 2 cups of your choice of bitter green (arugula, dandelion greens, mustard greens, chard, kale, watercress). I personally used arugula in this recipe.
- 1 large grapefruit, peeled if non-organic, or, peel left on if organic (I used organic and left the peel on)
- 2 granny smith apples
- 3 inches turmeric root
- 1 lemon, peeled if non-organic, or, peel left on if organic

For each juice, put the ingredients through the feeding chute of the juicer (such as the Omega NC800 or 8006/5 model, which I best prefer) and enjoy! Each juice is for 1 serving. Drink once a day to maintain a healthy gallbladder and liver, or 3 times a day if you are suffering from gallbladder and liver problems.
