Papaya Liver Detox Smoothie is a nutritious drink that helps detox one of the major organs in our bodies. Our diets can greatly impact the way our liver functions and so it is encouraged to have a healthy habit. When we have a clean diet, that is rich in nutritious vegetables and fruits , we are on your way to a healthy and well functioning liver.
The liver’s main job is to filter the blood coming from the digestive tract, before passing it to the rest of the body. It helps fight off diseases by destroying and removing bacteria from our bloodstream before entering our gut. A beautiful organ that acts as a storage space for fat, carbohydrates, protein, glycogen, minerals, and vitamins before they are released and used.
Some signs that tell us our liver isn’t working as well as it should is if we experience some sluggishness, lack of energy, acne, excess weight gain, headaches and chronic mood swings.
Let’s take better care of it, so that we aid in diminishing the symptoms. That’s is where this delicious smoothie and many others come into play.
Papaya is a powerful fruit when it comes to cleansing the liver and its seeds detoxify the organ easily within a month and increase the appetite mainly in elderly, children and alcoholic patients. The seeds also prevent free radical production in the liver cell and will easily generate the new cells.
How good is that! Try the healthy habit of having papaya every week, either in your smoothie or as a snack. Now on to the recipe. Frozen papaya make up the creamy, naturally sweet base, while lime add acidity and the mint will give a great garnish.
This juice is good for detoxing your liver.
