How to Dilute Unsweetened Cranberry Juice & Water for Detox

Save

Every day our bodies are exposed to contaminants like heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides. Our lymphatic, urinary, respiratory and gastrointestinal systems process and eliminate these toxins, but can become overloaded and work less efficiently. Detox cleanses restore our ability to fight disease and expel toxins. Cranberry juice, high in antioxidants, vitamin C and fiber, is often used in detox cleanses because it cleanses the lymphatic system and flushes the kidneys. Dr. Ann Louise Gittleman, a holistic nutritionist, says the acids in cranberry juice help eliminate fat. She suggests drinking diluted cranberry juice to lose weight, increase energy, and reduce the effects of aging.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 tbsp. plain, unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 1 cup spring water
  • 1 tsp. green powder, wheat grass powder, or Spirulina (available at health food stores)

Cranberry Juice Elixir

  • Pour cranberry juice, green powder and eight ounces of spring water into a clear glass. Use filtered water if you don't have spring water.

  • Stir with a spoon to mix thoroughly.

  • Drink at least one glass of diluted cranberry juice per day. This recipe makes one serving.

Tips & Warnings

  • Drink one glass first thing in the morning before breakfast.
  • Substitute blueberry juice for the cranberry juice, if you wish, since blueberry juice has similar cleansing properties.
  • Drink several glasses per day for optimal results. You can continue to drink diluted cranberry juice after you have finished your detox cleanse.
