Apple and celery detox green juice

Drinking green juices is an important and effective step to optimal health. They are great for detoxing, as they contain ingredients with natural detoxification properties. This is a potent apple and celery detox green juice.

Apples:
Like many fruits and vegetables, apples contain compounds called polyphenols. These compounds work as antioxidants, protecting the cells from the effects of oxidative stress. They are also high in fiber.

Celery:
It contains a category of antioxidants called phenolic antioxidants, which also have anti-inflammatory properties. Antioxidants help eliminate free radicals in the body, which are toxins known for causing serious diseases including cancer.

Cucumbers:
Cucumbers contain a very high amount of water, which is great for the colon. The peels are also loaded with fiber, which help remove toxins in the gut.

Kale:
It is an excellent source of two powerful antioxidants called carotenoids and flavonoids. These antioxidants protect our bodies from harmful oxidative stress.  They also contain important flavonoids like kaempferol and quercitin, which it thought to kill certain types of cancer cells.

Lemons:
They are often used in detox diets because of their ability to aid in digestion, clean the system, and flush out unwanted toxins from the body. Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which absorbs water and flushes it out of your system, which helps you lose weight. Lemon juice also helps alkalize the body, which is essential to keep bodily functions at their best.

Process the following ingredients in a juicer:

1 apple, cored
3 stalks of celery
1 cucumber
1 cup of kale
1/2 a lemon

Make sure ingredients are organic and wash all produce
