Using beverages such as the detoxifying Green Tea Juice with Citrus is one of the best ways to detoxify your body, and give it the nutrients it requires, giving your digestive system a much-required break from having to go through the process of breaking down, digesting and absorbing food. The key organ in the detoxifying process is the liver, where it removes all the impurities. Hence, it is a plain and simple solution to have a green juice Detox, consuming juices of fruits and vegetables to help it work its best!
Green tea is known widely, to be filled with antioxidants which help the detoxing process within the body. This also aids extensively in weight loss as it is a powerful fat burner as well. Also, it helps extensively as it does not affect your appetite and does not cause digestive distress, apart from containing “Theanine”, a phytochemical that calms the body and mind, promoting relaxation. The process of consuming green tea, usually with citrus juice added to it, stimulates the liver which is the body’s primary organ for the Detox process. When the liver is stimulated, this kick starts the digestive system, during which the liver releases uric acid, and produces bile to help in the safe removal of toxins. Keeping the liver and digestive system clean and clear is also known to help prevent chronic diseases.
Citruses such as Lemons are natural detoxifiers, being full of vitamin C that helps in the conversion of toxins into easily digestible material. Lemons are also packed with electrolytes such as potassium, magnesium apart from calcium; and antioxidants, all of which are extremely good for our body! Lemon juice is also a known live stimulant, helping it release natural enzymes by helping the oxygenation process in the body. Cayenne Peppers also stimulate the circulatory system, where they help in opening capillaries, aid in digestion, and aid in the regulation of blood sugar. The best-associated effect is that lemons, while acidic, and the cayenne pepper, though super spicy, help in the neutralization of the body’s pH, making it more alkaline.
