1 whole peeled lemon
Celery x 1 stalk
Cucumber x 3 inches chopped
Ginger x 2cm – fresh is best
Pear x 1

Drinking this every morning will set you up for the day whether you are detoxing or not. The lemon’s contain citric acid, the phytonutrient tangeretin, vitamin c and limonene. It also has sour and pungent properties that stimulate digestive enzyme release. Amongst lemon’s health benefits are its detox properties such as bile stimulation and antioxidant status. Lemons are also antibacterial. By juicing vegetables we release the nutrients so that they are readily absorbed into the bloodstream without being subject to the digestive processes; the fibre that remains in blended (vs juiced) vegetables also stabilises blood sugar.
