Carrots are a great source of beta carotene, a tried and true liver detoxifier. Additionally, it converts to vitamin A, which improves your wound tensile strength (the stress and pressure your incision can handle without tearing) and promotes healing. Bonus: this juice favorite also increases energy and alertness.
- Handful of parsley
- 2 Granny Smith apples, quartered
- 6 carrots
To help release flavor, bunch the parsley in your hand prior to adding it to the juicer. Add it in with the large end of a carrot first, then follow with one apple, the remaining carrots, and the second apple. Depending on your preference, you can drink this juice strained or unstrained.
We hope you enjoyed our top homemade juice recipes for happy, healthy healing!
