There is no better vegetable to use as a base for a detox drink than beets. Along with a concentration of vitamins and minerals, especially folate, the antioxidant manganese, vitamin C and essential potassium and magnesium, this seemingly humble vegetable contains a unique combination of phytonutrients called betalains that provide us with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection.
Betalaines are also involved in Phase II of your body’s natural detoxification, a metabolic step involving the activation of the enzymes glutathione S-transferase, which carry water-soluble metabolized toxins throughout the system and then excreted in urine. These phytonutrients give the reddish purple or yellow color to the beets.
When spiced with savory ginger, especially because of its anti-inflammatory and cancer-inhibiting properties, this elixir becomes a real vitamin bomb! Grapefruit is also a specific cleansing product, as it has a high concentration of the antioxidant vitamin C, polyphenols and lycopene, and also gives the drink a special tart and pungent taste. We recommend adding a little lime juice for a refreshing taste, and we promise that this detox drink will prove to be a treat for your body cells and taste buds.
