The Liver Rescue Smoothie is a key recipe because it offers such powerful healing support for the liver, which makes it helpful for every kind of chronic illness and symptom. It’s also a central recipe in the Liver Rescue 3:6:9 Cleanse.
The first smoothie option below is a fast, simple, antioxidant-rich tonic to add to your life for deep liver healing. The second smoothie option is a light, cheery alternative that brings together greens and fruit. If you’ve never thought of adding sprouts to your smoothie before, now is a perfect time to try it out. They’re powerful and mild, and they blend perfectly into this smooth, tropical treat.
Pitaya (also called dragon fruit): The red pigment in the red-fleshed variety of pitaya is a rejuvenator for your liver, bringing cells back to life. It helps your liver produce cells faster so regeneration of the liver can occur. It’s a fountain of youth fruit for the liver that slows down and stops liver aging by caring for its deep, inner core, which in most cases succumbs to disease if left neglected for too long. Look for packs of frozen red pitaya in the frozen section of the grocery store or online, or you may find it fresh in your area. If neither is available where you live, seek out pure pitaya powder.
Wild blueberries: Contain dozens of undiscovered
antioxidants, including anthocyanin varieties. There’s not just one pigment
inside a wild blueberry; there are dozens of pigments not yet researched or
studied. The wild blueberry is to the liver as mother’s milk is to a baby. Not
only do wild blueberries have the ability to grab on to plenty of
troublemakers, they also hold on to them as they leave the liver, in a way that
most other healing foods cannot. The pigments in wild blueberries have the
ability to saturate deep into liver cells and cross cell walls and membranes
inside the liver, spreading their blue everywhere. Wild blueberries enhance the
intestinal tract, feeding good bacteria there, which benefits the liver
greatly. Look for packs of frozen wild blueberries in the frozen section of the
grocery store or online, or you may find it fresh in your area. If neither is
available where you live, seek out pure wild blueberry powder.
