The Liver Rescue Smoothie is a key recipe in the book Heal your liver, because it is helpful for all types of chronic diseases and symptoms by supporting the liver so effectively in detoxification. It is also a central recipe in the Heal your liver 3:6:9 cleanse, which is included in Heal Your Liver.
2 variants of the Liver Rescue Smoothie
The first Liver Rescue Smoothie variation below is a quick, easy, antioxidant-rich tonic that you can incorporate into your life to deeply heal your liver. For the second smoothie variant, the alternative is a combination of greens and fruit, which gives the smoothie a light, cheerful taste. If you’ve never thought about adding sprouts to your smoothie, now would be the perfect time to give it a try. Sprouts are powerful and mild and go very well with this gentle, tropical treat.
Pitaya (also called dragon fruit): The red pigment in the red-fleshed variety of Pitaya is a liver rejuvenator, bringing liver cells back to life. It helps the liver produce cells even faster so that the liver can regenerate. It is a fountain of youth fruit for the liver that counteracts the aging process of the liver. She does this by nurturing her deep inner core, which in most cases is affected by illness if it is neglected for too long. (Look out for packs of frozen red pitaya in the frozen section of the grocery store or in the Internet, or you can find them fresh in your area. If neither is available, you should use pure Pitaya powder buy.)
Wild blueberries: Contain dozens of undiscovered antioxidants, including anthocyanins. Wild blueberries not only have one pigment, but there are dozens of pigments that have not yet been researched or studied. Wild blueberries are to the liver what breast milk is to a baby. One of her abilities is that she can not only absorb many troublemakers, but she also holds them when they leave the liver. It does this in a way that most other healing foods cannot.
The pigments in wild blueberries are able to penetrate deep into liver cells and penetrate the cell walls and membranes within the liver, spreading their blue throughout. Wild blueberries also improve the digestive tract and nourish good bacteria there, which in turn is very beneficial for the liver.
