While the liver is the major organ for metabolism and detox, it sometimes becomes exhausted and slows down due to an unhealthy lifestyle and diet.

Miracle drink recipe:
This is one of the easiest and yummiest health drinks. For a single serving, all you need is
- 1 medium beetroot (rinsed, lightly peeled and quartered)
- 1 large apple (peeled, cored and quartered)
- 3 whole carrots (rinsed and peeled)
- ¼ inch fresh ginger (peeled)
- 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice (optional)
- Place all ingredients in a blender or juicer and blend until smooth. Add chilled water as per the needed consistency.
- If you are using a blender and don’t want the drink to be pulpy, then place a fine-mesh strainer over a large bowl and pour the juice over. Use a rubber spatula to press the pulp down and squeeze all of the juice out. Let stand for 5 minutes so you get most of the juice.
- Add lemon juice to get the tangy flavor. Pour into a serving glass and enjoy the goodness. Beetroot gives a sweet taste so it is better to avoid adding any sweeteners.
P.S: Ginger gives the drink a unique punch. If you feel it is too strong, downsize the quantity. Ginger is great for digestion.
For maximum benefits, consume this drink on an empty stomach.
