I have been taking this detox juice almost everyday for sometime now and I can already feel the difference.The real plunge was inspired by a popular documentary (YouTube) I watched not long ago (you can also catch it on Netflix if you have access).

It wasn’t about the craze of detox that inspired me, but a better understanding that the body is really capable of repairing itself even in the face of the many poisons we all throw at it most of the time. It just requires a good supply of plant nutrients. If you think about the non-communicable diseases that have invaded Zimbabwean society, this can only be a good choice.

This is no medical advice, but if you struggle with certain health issues such as being overweight, headaches, allergies, diabetes and so on, without quitting your meds, go crazy on this juice for a sustained period of time and evaluate the results.

You are likely to find the first one or two glasses of this detox juice completely out of your comfort zone. The reason is most people take lots of sugar and other things before or never getting to detox.

If you keep at it you will soon discover a taste for the juice and from then on you will discover a lasting taste for it, at least that’s how its been with me. I certainly plan to carry on and make it a lifestyle, but that won’t overall stop me from cooking and eating what I enjoy eating.

Below is a list of ingredients in this detox juice. Next to each ingredient I have done a little research for you on the health benefits that awaits hopefully to get you trying it out.

This is just the tip of the ice-berg but as you can see, there’s nothing but goodness that you’ll be bringing to your body when you drink this juice. For more inspiration visit this page. Let’s get to it.
