The vegetables commonly found in “green drinks” or juice cleanses are rich in antioxidants – vitamins A, C and E, and phytonutrients called thiols. Without the support of these important nutrients during a detox program, toxins will form very reactive free radicals that may cause you to feel unwell and damage your tissues.
The following vegetables deliver vital nutrients to your body – so be sure to include them in your liver support regimen:
|Broccoli:||vitamins A, K, E, B6 and C, folic acid, potassium, magnesium, and thiols|
|Kale:||vitamin A, chlorophyll, and thiols|
|Carrot:||vitamins A, K, B6 and C, biotin, and potassium|
|Spinach:||vitamins A, K and C, and folic acid|
|Beets:||vitamins A, B6 and C, iron, potassium, and manganese|
Other essential nutrients needed for safe detoxification include – amino acids, fiber, and magnesium. A liver cleanse is not the time to be nutrient deficient!
