Digestion-Enhancing Smoothie

This juice can be used regularly and is also good to use during a detox. Cabbage is one of the most potent digestive aids and is great for juicing as its nutrients are highest when raw. It helps rid the colon of waste and prevents constipation and fluid retention. It is also high in the amino acid L-glutamine which can help reduce inflammation in the digestive tract and restore the integrity of the gut lining.
Celery is high in potassium which helps reduce fluid retention; it also contains good levels of antioxidants such as vitamin C, which help protect against damage to our cells.
Pears are a great source of soluble fibre; fibre softens our stools, making them easier to pass through the digestive tract, helping to prevent constipation. Watercress, a cruciferous vegetable, is high in sulphur which assists the liver in the detoxification process. Spirulina has amazing antimicrobial properties that can destroy bacteria and viruses, 70% of which live in our digestive tract, which can lower our immune system.
