3 Kidney Cleansing Juice Recipes To Clear The Skin and Detox The Body

Want to improve the functioning of your kidneys? Want clearer skin and heightened immunity? Then these 3 kidney cleansing juice recipes are just what you need to give your kidneys a little TLC.

Your kidneys need special attention because they are exposed to highly toxic chemicals in the blood that filters through them. When fat and toxicant deposits accumulate in the kidneys, they don’t function as well as they should.

In addition to these juices it is important to limit or completely avoid foods that put a lot of stress on our kidneys. Namely, animal products, refined salt, caffeine and refined sugary junk foods are just a few of the foods which you should try and avoid.

Foods you should try to consume more of, and which are featured in these three juices are:

Beets – the blood-red beet is a wonderful cleanser of the blood, helping to pre-filter the blood before it reaches the kidneys (and thus reduces stress on the kidneys).

Burdock – known for it’s blood purifying abilities, making it an excellent metabolic tonic, improving the functioning of the liver and kidneys, digestion, lymphatic and endocrine systems. It is highly regarded for its action in the urinary tract, being of benefit to the kidneys and bladder infections, inflammations and kidney stones.

Celery – promotes healthy and normal kidney function by aiding elimination of toxins from the body! In fact, Hippocrates considered celery a medicine and recommended it for its kidney cleansing benefits.

Cilantro – helps to reduce the damaging effects of lead on the kidneys. Cilantro is also useful for removing mercury, a toxic metal that decreases the kidneys’ ability to filter and increases risk for kidney disease.

Carrots – carrots are rich in vitamin A, an essential ingredient for proper kidney function.

Cucumber – help to wash the kidneys and bladder of debris and stones. Studies have shown that eating cucumbers regularly helps to regulate uric acid in the body, thereby preventing certain kidney and bladder stones.

Bell Pepper – provide roughage from the fibre, vitamin B6, vitamin A and folic acid, as well as the antioxidant lycopene which helps to cleanse the kidneys.
