This energizing, and immune system rejuvenating garden veggie juice is the perfect detox. It contains ingredients that help tighten and tone the cells, while flushing out any excess bacteria and toxins.
If you’re a fan of V8 juice, you’ll also find this as a great alternative. Did you know that a single 11.5 ounce can of V8 juice contains 690mg of sodium?! This will leave you feeling dehydrated and foggy-headed. V8 juices are highly processed, reconstituted “vegetable blends” which have completely lost their natural enzymes and bioavailability of nutrients.
What is so great about this juice?
Celery – provides cell salts to keep cells pliable
Spinach – great for the bowels and blood; full of iron and amino acids
Radishes – mucus expellers
Tomatoes – lycopene for a strong immune system
Carrots – beta-carotene for eyes and a healthy glow
Leek – keep blood vessel lining clean and clear

Will try the juice
Recently I had a heart attack. I was put on several meds which I still don’t like taking because of the dangerous side effects. Reading here, I see the benefits to the different organs and the immune system using specific foods, but I’ve been told and researched foods and supplements/vitamins I now cannot take because they take care of what the meds are now doing, can’t overdue anything. It brings up a major issue with drugs: why am I and millions of other folks worldwide taking drugs with side effects when there are foods and supplements, etc., available that provide like benefits, but have no dangerous side effects?? I intend to bring it up with my prescribing gp after our sheltering-in-place order is finished. This is about our very lives, this Is ludicrous what happens to our bodies and the harm being done is avoidable!!!

Hi Elle – you bring up very solid points! Many doctors often prescribe pills instead of dealing with the root of the issue. Food is medicine! If you truly want to heal, I’d suggest seeking out a naturopath or health coach to guide you in the right direction. A general practitioner will sadly not be of much help.
