Detoxification is the process by which the body identifies substances that are unhealthy for it and then neutralizes and eliminates them. This battle is being waged constantly, even while we sleep. All the organs and systems of the body, including the liver, gallbladder, kidneys, intestines, skin, lungs, brain, and lymphatic and circulatory systems, work together to achieve this.

Avoiding meat and dairy products, which contain many toxins, such as bacteria, antibiotics, hormones, and dioxins, is a no-brainer, and these juice recipes will help your body eliminate any other “unwelcome visitors.”* And when we’re healthy, we can help animals more effectively!

For each of the below recipes, place all ingredients in a blender and purée until smooth.*
