Apple, Ginger and Beetroot-Anti-inflammatory and Liver Detox Fertility Juice

Sue Bedford (MSc Nutritional Therapy)

Why not try making this ‘Nutritious and Delicious’ juice and benefit from the amazing nutrients it provides, which aid detoxification, boost energy and help support the immune system.

Fresh Apple Juice is packed full of plant chemicals, including the flavonoid quercetin which provides anti- inflammatory properties. Apples are low in calories, a great source of vitamin c and potassium and also contain pectin, a ‘soluble’ fibre that can help to lower ‘bad’ cholesterol.

Ginger contains antibacterial properties along with anti-inflammatory compounds.

Beetroot helps the liver’s detoxification processes. Beetroot contains Betacyanin, a powerful antioxidant, which has been shown to reduce Homocysteine levels (a toxic protein that can accumulate in the blood) and supports phase-two detoxification in the liver. Beetroot contains a good amount of the antioxidant Vitamins C and E, along with Iron and Folate.

Fresh lemon juice is also a great detoxifier and helps to support liver enzymes. It is also a fantastic source of the antioxidant vitamin c- helping to zap those free radicals and is a natural antiseptic that helps to kill harmful bacteria.

Kale is a member of the cruciferous family, containing Sulphur and compounds of Sulphur including Sulforaphane and indole 3 carbinol that support liver detoxification….and that’s just for starters!!

Turmeric contains a powerful compound called Curcumin which has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

The combination of these ingredients pack a great nutritional punch that not only help detoxify the liver and reduce inflammation, they are also great for energy levels and supporting the immune system.
