Recipe: Detoxifying Green Juice
Detoxifying Green Juice Recipe
This green juice recipe is fantastic for supporting the detoxification pathways of the body.
Packed with alkaline, nutrient-dense ingredients, it will help your body to process toxins gently, and support your body to renew cells while boosting the immune system too.
Some of the benefits from these super-nutrient-dense ingredients include:
The broccoli and kale in this juice are very supportive due to them containing a compound called sulforaphane.
Sulforaphane is particularly helpful for the detoxification process because it modulates the nrf2 pathway. This pathway helps to ‘switch on’ protective enzymes which help to counteract reactive molecules, and also helps the liver cells to produce a detoxification enzyme called glutathione-S-transferase.
Glutathione-S-transferase assists in helping the body eliminate toxins, by binding with environmental toxins and making them more water-soluble so they can be excreted by the kidneys.
The active compound in turmeric, curcumin is also so important because it may inhibit and suppress a number of different disease-causing mechanisms, such as inflammation, oxidative damage, and tumor formation.
Coriander has been found to combine heavy metals and loosen them from tissue, making them easier to eliminate from the body. Coriander’s strong antioxidant abilities, in part due to the flavonoid quercetin, also aid in the prevention of bodily damage caused by free radicals.
And of course, it’s highly alkaline, antioxidant-rich and anti-inflammatory too! Winner!
So now we know why this detoxifying green juice recipe is so helpful, let’s jump in.

Hi Ross! Reading your articles for some time.
How would you combine intermittent fasting with your green juices as a lifestyle.
Hi, My name is Marion Smith.
My question is, as I am moving toward the alkaline way of life…there are time when I want to enjoy a beef burger, or rib dinner. Can I still eat these these types of foods at all?
Yep – all in moderation.
Hi Ross, I just went into menopause and I start having constipation problem. What will you recommend. Thank you
Hi Ross have been making various smoothies per your Alkaline Cleanse recipes recently and find the ‘flavour’ a bit dull and also haven’t been able to get hold of any fresh tumeric either so far (live in the UK)…is it OK to add say the juice of half a lemon to make the smoothies a bit more interesting please and leave the coconut oil ‘solid’…still hoping to lose some weight on this ‘regime’!!! would be grateful for your comments…thank you Barbara-Cheryth x

I love the ingredients of this Green Smoothie and will get ingredients soon, but I have an
question, I do have a Juice new from a year ago not used alot, but it is an Omega Juicer Centrifugal
Juicer model 9000 and its Cylinder shape and I use filter papers in it, I know its not the more slower type, but will this work Ok for now. I used a year ago for juicing celery juice. For in the Future what kind of Juicer do you reccomend? Can it still be an Omega Brand? I may not be able to afford one, I am on lower income. Thankyou. I do have a NINJA blender 1000 watts. And a Breville Blender from a few yrs ago -but is hardly used. Thankyou, Connie
Does it matter what color the beet is?
Can I boil the beets and use the water. I don’t have a juicer, I have a small blender
Juice the ingredients or make a smoothie with them? What would be the difference?
The celery won’t blend – but everything else will. Add coconut oil and avocado and it’s a great smoothie.

I would love to learn more. However, my schedule is not conducive to webinars. It would be helpful if these were recorded to listen at a convenient day and time. Please advise.
My husband has stage 4 inoperable squamacell carcinoma in his upper palette. His has chosen holistic treatment as chemo and radiation would be life altering for him due to its place in his head.

Is this a drink that can be used continuously?
Yep – daily if you like!
