To detoxify your body, you need an abundance of antioxidants and plenty of water to flush out toxins and free radicals. Dr. Arem’s smoothie combines the most effective detoxifying ingredients to draw toxins out of your body and keep you fighting free radicals all day. “I’ve chosen ingredients that have substantial health benefits, so you are also preparing your body for good health and weight loss. To help to keep your detox flush on full blast, drink this blend twice daily for the first seven days of the diet.”
4 small strawberries
2 celery stalks with leaves, coarsely chopped
1 cup fresh spinach
½ small grapefruit
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 cup parsley, chopped
Blend all ingredients together into a smoothie. Then follow your smoothie with raw fennel. Fennel boosts your immune system, and its weight-loss capabilities date as far back as ancient Greek times. Fennel has strong antioxidant benefits and also aids digestion. Its appetite-suppressing potential will help you lose weight.
Dr. Arem chose each specific ingredient in this smoothie for its substantial health benefits and to help you prepare your body for good health and weight loss. Let’s look at the smoothie ingredients list:
Citrus juices contain an abundance of antioxidants; special phytonutrients found in them called limonoids can clear your liver and slowly breakdown carcinogens. On top of its reputation as a well-known source of antioxidant vitamins, grapefruit contains lycopene, the antioxidant found in tomatoes. Together, grapefruit and lime can improve insulin and cholesterol levels. If you can’t eat grapefruit, the lime will suffice.
Strawberries have anticarcinogenic flavonoids, reduce LDL cholesterol, and help lower your risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, and diabetes. They’re also an excellent source of vitamins B and C, potassium, and phosphorus, and their ability to scavenge free radicals prevents damage to the cells. Use organic strawberries, as the conventionally grown berries are more likely to have a high pesticide load.
Celery protects you from oxidative stress with its rich source of vitamins. Celery’s best aspects: it’s an organic source of sodium to hydrate you, and its alkalizing properties help antioxidants work more efficiently in your body.
Spinachhelps blood pressure and blood flow with its ability to decrease cell damage and to increase oxygen delivery to your cells.
Garlic and parsley are powerful detoxifiers. The antibiotic properties of garlic boost the immune system and benefit cardiovascular health. It’s a super spice that can ameliorate oxidative stress. I’ve offset the bad breath possibility with parsley, which freshens breath and aids digestion. Parsley’s chief role, though, is to protect your mitochondria from oxidative damage. Parsley also contains vitamin C and A, calcium, magnesium, iron, and organic sodium.
