The liver is one of our bodies’ most important organs. It performs more than 500 bodily functions, including purifying our blood by eliminating any toxins or useless cells, breaking down carbohydrates and lipids, and storing substances that give our body energy such as vitamins A, D, K, and E. However, we don’t always take care of our liver as we should.

Parsley is rich in flavonoids and antioxidant substances, and, just like the lemon, contains large quantities of vitamin C. These properties help protect and care for your liver.
Due to its diuretic properties, celery can greatly help your liver eliminate built up toxins. Here’s how to make the miracle juice:
– 3 lemons;
– 1 cup of parsley;
– 5 stalks of celery;
– 6 cups of water.
Blend the lemon juice, parsley, and celery. Then add the water and blend again. You should drink 2 cups of this, three times a day, always on a empty stomach (a few hours after having eaten). Repeat this procedure for the next 2 days, for a total of three days.
