How To Use Beetroot Juice To Detox Your Liver, Break Down Gallstones And Stop Allergies In 4 Weeks!

Last updated on

The goal of detoxification or cleansing your liver is to get rid of toxins that build up over time. These toxins are thought to be created by the consumption of unhealthy, processed foods. Use these 5 beetroot juices for liver detox and improve your immune system.

Along with providing a boost to your immune system and remedy for digestive disorders, cleansing your liver may even help prevent fatty liver, gall stones, lower your cholesterol, and provide relief from allergies. Some people have reported that by detoxifying their liver, it also helps to regulate blood sugar levels, prevent fatigue, and reduce minor aches and pain.

Most liver cleanses are performed by only drinking juices for several days. By choosing a variety of juice drinks, you can ensure you receive an adequate amount of vitamins and minerals.

Use these liver cleansing juice recipes to detoxify and cleanse your system. Try to choose a few different recipes, instead of drinking the same drink over and over.

Before you start, read more about the health benefits and some safety measures about beetroot here. If you’re in any way constipated (not having at least one bowel movement a day), then it is best that you do a complete gastrointestinal cleanse before you start liver cleansing. After a gastrointestinal cleanse, you will be able to eliminate toxins much better, and prevent uneliminated toxins from being reabsorbed into your liver.

5 Beetroot Juices For Liver Detox

1. Beetroot Liver Cleanse

This first juice drink combines beetroot with other liver cleansing fruits and vegetables. Combine all of the following ingredients in a juicer:

  • 1 large beetroot
  • 1 green apple
  • 3 carrots
  • 4 ribs of celery
  • ½ lemon with peel

2. Citrus-Beetroot Drink

Citrus fruits are commonly included in juice cleanse recipes for their high bioflavonoids content that really enhance the nutrient contents of any juices. For this citrus-beetroot drink, put all of these ingredients through your juicer:

  • 1 large beetroot
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 orange
  • 1 lemon (or 2 limes)
  • 1-inch ginger root

3. Spicy Red Beet Drink

This spicy red beetroot drink is a little pungent and may not be suitable for everybody but it is so high in antioxidants. To make this drink, you will need:

  • 2 large beetroots
  • 2 or 3 red or yellow bell pepper
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 1 lime

4. Purple Ginger Root and Beet Drink

A purple beetroot drink will make a good mid-day meal. Gather the following ingredients and process using your juicer:

  • 1 large beetroot
  • ¼ head of red cabbage
  • 1 cucumber
  • 4 ribs of celery stalk
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 inch of fresh ginger root

5. Root Liver Cleanse Drink

This final recipe contains several root plants, including ginger and turmeric. Turmeric is a spice that is commonly used in Indian cuisine and is known for containing a wide range of beneficial nutrients. For a root liver cleanse drink, combine all of these ingredients in your juicer:

  • 1 large beetroot
  • 1 jicama
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 inch of fresh turmeric root
  • 1 inch of fresh ginger root

Liver Cleanse For Four Weeks

Before starting a cleanse, make sure that you take precautions. It is important to ensure that you continue to receive proper nutrition. If you feel fatigued, while performing a liver cleanse, you should stop the process and resume eating your normal diet. This also applies to any other side effects, such as dizziness, nausea, or headaches.

Cleansing your liver may take several weeks. Use the recipes above, one at a time, 2-3 glasses a day for at least three days out of a week (whether consecutive or alternate days). The recipes given are for one portion. Multiply the quantity accordingly to make enough for 2-3 days. Take a break and do the same with another recipe the following weeks for four or five consecutive weeks. Repeat every 3-6 months to keep your liver in tip-top condition.

You may eat as normal, but carefully cutting out foods that burden your liver. Add more fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet during your liver cleanse, and drink plenty of water to help flush out the toxins.

Once you’ve done this for at least four weeks, you will see a big improvement in your overall energy and alertness. If you have high blood pressure, that should come down. You may also find other ailments, joint pains and bodily ache disappear.

Happy juicing!

  1. Question…for juce number 2..do you put the grapefruit /orange /lemon peel thru the juicer as well??

  2. When you said 2-3 days. Do i have to drink it 2-3 consecutive days then stop and continue again next week. Or i can drink it 2-3 times a day with skipping a day. i.e if i drink it today i will not drink tomorrow then i’ll drink again the day after tomorrow.

      Hi Roxie, thank you for asking. You may drink for 2 to 3 days during a week (whether consecutively or on alternate days). Beetroot juices can be quite detoxifying especially if you are new to juicing, so it is better not to overwhelm and overload your liver from its potent detox effects. Pick one different recipe for each week till you complete 3 or 4 weeks. Happy juicing!

    1. You can leave the peel on, but cut off both ends of the beetroot, especially the roots part as it may harbour dirt that is difficult to wash off. Scrub the beetroot clean, under running water. Then cut them up into sizes that can be fed through your juicer. Juice them raw! 🙂 Enjoy!

  3. When you refer to juicing 2-3x/day are you suggesting doing it as a fast for those 3 days? Or do eat veggies and lean meat in addition? Just looking for clarification. I have fatty liver and am anxious to heal it.

    1. The article was referring to drinking 2-3 glasses a day, not as a fast, but as complimenting your healthy diet of mostly plant-based foods (at least 80%). If you have fatty liver, a gastrointestinal cleanse and gallbladder/liver flush prior to drinking beetroot juices are important to help improve your health significantly. The links to doing these cleanses are given in the article above. Happy juicing!
