Beet juice is excellent liver cleanser and beets have been used to de-toxify and support the liver for a long time.
Beets are rich in vitamins and minerals that include beta carotene, zinc, vitamin C, and chromium (from the apple), – so it is no wonder this drink is especially energizing.
I love combining beet juice with with apples and carrots, as well as celery, cabbage, parsley, kale, and other vegetables (even parsnips, which you can in this super-red recipe here). This makes the juice even more delicious and nutrient-rich. You may also want to add a piece of ginger and lemon for extra zest.

Making the juice:

The Juicer I’m Using and Recommend
I recently upgraded my old juicer to Breville Juice JE98XL Fountain Plus. I’m really happy with it so far. By the way, it’s the same juicer that Joe Cross used in his 60 day fast in the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead documentary. (If you haven’t seen it already – you have to watch it. It will give you even more motivation to start juicing regularly).
