After my recent post “Can an Alkaline Diet Prevent & Reverse Chronic Kidney Disease?” I thought it would be a great idea to post a juice recipe for you that is chock-full of those kidney-protecting, and kidney-boosting ingredients!
And here it is, the Kidney Rejuvenation Juice!
Consistent over-acidity in the diet has been proven to contribute heavily to the deterioration of the kidneys, and this alkaline juice is packed with foods that are known to help reduce acidity, reduce inflammation and help protect the kidneys.
They’re one of your primary detoxification organs that work HARD all day, every day – so let’s show ’em some love!
The Alkaline Kidney Rejuvenation Juice
- 1cm turmeric root
- 1cm ginger root
- 1 red capsicum
- 2 handfuls of kale (any variety)
- 1 cucumber
- 200ml coconut water (or to taste)
Wash and chop all of the ingredients so that they’ll pass through your juicer, and enjoy!
Be careful with the fresh turmeric as it will stain your fingers, kitchen bench etc, but it’s so worth it… 🙂
If you can’t access fresh turmeric, you can whisk in 1tsp of powdered turmeric into the juice after it’s done.
And as with everything on Earth that has ever existed, ever, you can actually source fresh turmeric root on amazon.com!
(I must admit, that one surprised me a little…)
Enjoy, and as ever – any questions or suggestions, leave them in the comments below!
