This light and refreshing green juice is a great way to make your liver happy this New Year’s! Cabbage contains sulfur based compounds and other phytonutrients that can promote natural detoxification in the liver. Cabbage’s plant compounds do this by “turning on” more proteins that make enzymes which are responsible for helping to package up and carry waste safely out of your liver then through your bloodstream to be eliminated from your body.
Ginger has phytonutrients that can reduce nausea, improve digestion and boost immunity. Eating soluble fiber rich pears can help lower risk for certain types of cancers like colon cancer.
If you are new to juicing, try this light and delicious way to ease into green juices. What a great way to ring in the New Year!
