There’s a good reason why many spas have a juice bar available to their guests; juicing fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs is not only a great way to get a rapid infusion of vitamins, minerals and other plant based nutrients into your system, it’s also a highly effective way to rid the body of toxins built up from poor diet and environmental factors. Juicing is great for cleansing the liver and it also improves the health of the heart and cardiovascular system. Vegetable juice alkalizes your system, making your PH level less acidic; as a result, brain function improves and the aging process slows down. Juicing is also great for skin, hair and nail health. The best part about juicing is you don’t always have to pay the exorbitant prices spas charge for juice – you can just make it at home with a juicer from the local appliance store. Here are some of Talk Spas favorite recipes for juicing away toxins:
