Super Liver Juice

This detoxifying juice contains all of the most potent liver cleansing ingredients, and gives your liver a gentle flush and the opportunity to heal itself. There are no side effects, apart from a bit of garlic-breath for a while. However, the grapefruit removes most of the odor. For my weekend "rockstars", this liver cleanse recipe is one of the most incredible hangover cures. It contains everything you would need to cure a night of mixing beer + wine + liquor and that bag of cheetos due to the Vitamin c, Omega 3, Probiotics, and Ginger elements. I would recommend doing this over the weekend, and in the morning. It is particularly effective if you have undertaken some light exercise such as walking or jogging prior to the liver cleanse as this helps to get the toxins moving out of the body and invigorates the lymph system.

Raw cashews are a rich source of copper - a key mineral in multiple body systems. It is vital to building strong tissue, maintaining blood volume, and producing energy in your cells. Not only do raw cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts, approximately 82% of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, plus about 66% of this unsaturated fatty acid content are heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, similar to those found in olive oil. Chocolate in the form of raw cocoa powder is deliciously decadent and also is rich in antioxidants such as flavonols to promote heart health and reduce the risk of cancer. Flavonols may also help lower blood pressure and improve blood flow to the brain and heart. Greek Yogurt adds the perfect "tang" to enhance the flavor and deliver gut-healthy probiotics.

Healing Bone Marrow Broth

Vibrant Method Test Kitchen “Original Recipe”.

Bone Marrow Broth is a common healing food that is now being recognized for its incredible health benefits ranging from overcoming food intolerances and allergies, improving joint health, reducing cellulite, creating a youthful skin tone, and boosting the immune system. Nutrition researchers Sally Fallon and Kaayla Daniel of the Weston A. Price Foundation explain that bone broths contain minerals in forms that your body can easily absorb: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and others. They contain chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine, the compounds sold as pricey supplements to reduce inflammation, arthritis, and joint pain. Broth can be consumed plain with a little salt, ground pepper and crushed garlic, or used to braised and roast meats, as a base stock for soups and stews, and when braising vegetable. Add a small amount to your pet's food for added nutrient benefits.
