As the whole nation was shocked yesterday with the demise of veteran actor Mark Gil, I’m sure that a lot of us right now have become curious and somewhat paranoid about Liver Cirrhosis and Liver Cancer. But instead of making you more worried and afraid by writing about this fatal disease, I’ve decided to share with you a healthy “Good for the Liver” juice recipe which I learned during my detox retreat assisted by a doctor and nurse at Nurture Wellness Village in Tagaytay last summer. This juice has no therapeutic claims but definitely safe to drink by anyone especially if you use all organic ingredients. Prevention is of course way better than cure and personally, I really prefer my food to serve as my “medicine” instead of those we buy in drug stores.
This is what they call their “LIVER JUICE” (lemon + apple + carrot + kale)
These simple ingredients are known to help you maintain a youthful glow with its anti-aging properties from nature’s best antioxidants as well as help your liver flush out harmful toxins.
