The Best Liver Detox Ever

Wednesday, February 06, 2008

I thought if anyone of you are looking for a great way to have more energy and also have the benefit of losing the unwanted pounds here is the most increditible detoxfying cleanse I have ever used. Please let me know what you all think? This is so very easy...;-)


Great news! There’s still time to squeeze into that sexy dress hiding in the back of your closet and wow everyone at the next party. The key is to nourish and heal your LIVER, using this phytonutrient-rich three day cleanse. “At 4 million women have already tried the plan, and they’ve proven that it safely and completely revitalizes the fat-burning organ prompting dramatic weight loss,” maintains nutritionist Ann Louise Gittleman, PH.D.

And it’s easy: Day One is a super simple juice fast. Days: Two and Three: include a bounty of nutrient-dense liver-healing foods. You won’t go hungry-the fruit juices sugars provide sustained energy while the cinnamon and ginger reduce cravings-and you’ll lose up to nine pounds of fat in three days. Gittleman assures.

For one day you’ll abstain from food but drink large quantities of a cleansing “cocktail.” Its main ingredient, cranberry juice is rich in organic acids and antho-cyaninas, which stimulate liver detoxification, Gittleman says. The drink also contains lemon juice and orange juice. Both are rich in ascorbic acid (vitamin C), an antioxidant that deactivates liver-damaging free radicals, improving this organ’s ability to excrete fat and toxins by as much as 35 percent, researchers at Chicago’s Northwester Memorial hospital report. And UCLA studies suggest that the brew’s cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger improve the liver’s breakdown of fat and environmental pollutants by as much as 25 percent.

Day 1-Cleanse the Liver with this Miracle Juice

The recipe: Make one day’s worth.

Combine 8oz. all natural cranberry juice (like Trader Joe’s or R.W. Knudsen Family) with 56oz, water in a pot. Bring to a light boil.
Place ½ tsp. cinnamon and ¼ tsp. each nutmeg and ginger in a tea ball and steep in the liquid for 15 minutes. (If you do not have a tea ball, use a coffee filter and twist tie it closed)
Allow to cool, then stir in ¾ cup fresh OJ, ¼ cup lemon juice and Stevial Plus natural sweetener to taste. (I found I did not need this).


Upon waking, stir 2 Tbs. ground flaxseed into 1 cup Miracle Juice (Detox Juice) and drink.
One hour later, drink 8oz water. Every hour for the next 12 hours, alternate drinking a glass of juice (no flax) with a glass of water.
Before bed mix, another 2 Tbs. ground flax in finial cup of juice and enjoy.


Please note the term “slimming star” is just used to refer to the foods that are more affective with this cleanse plan. You can use the product of your choice for these foods.

Day 2 & 3
This phase of the Detoxifying cleanse reintroduces foods proven by researchers at Boston’s Tufts University School of Medicine and elsewhere to aid the liver in more than 100 metabolic reactions involved in fatty-acid metabolism and energy production.
Noshing on these delicious comfort foods can restore your liver’s full fat-burning potential within 48 hours. Says Gittleman. What’s more, including these foods in your daily diet after your detox ends will keep the weight-controlling organ function at its peak.


Two of these nutrient-packed gems a day deliver the amino acids, (methionine, glutamine and taurine,) which facilitate the elimination of fat-soluble toxins by the liver. Eggs are also rich in (lecithin), a fatty acid that increases production of digestion-enhancing bile.
Example: Breakfast- 2 eggs, veggies, and water with lemon


A daily serving of probiotic-rich yogurt boosts the growth of friendly bacteria in the intestines, such as (Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus bifidus). These bacteria help break down the toxins and boost the absorption of liver-nourishing vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and proteins.
Example: Snack-1 cup yogurt with berries and ground flax.

Artichokes and beets:

These veggies contain (silymarin) an antioxidant that increases production of fat-dissolving bile by as much as 127 percent. Additionally, (silymarin) stimulates the liver to excrete toxins, says Gittleman. “Beets are rich in (betaine), a phytonutrient that helps the liver convert fat into energy.”
Example: Lunch-Salad with beets, artichokes, 6 oz. protein.

Cinnamon and nutmeg:

Both spices make muscle cells more sensitive to sugar-controlling insulin, reducing appetite and cravings for up to six hours. “Plus, cinnamon is (thermogenic),” adds Gittleman. “It increases metabolic rate, as much as tripling your ability to burn calories for fuel instead of stroing them as fat.”
Example: Snack-Baked apple with cinnamon and nutmeg

Cruciferous veggies:

Brocooli and cauliflower contain (indole-3 carbinol and sulforaphane,) phytonutrients that boost the liver’s ability to convert fat-soluble toxins into water-soluble ones that can pass through the kidneys. And these foods contain (glucosinolates,) which enhance the livers ability to break down fat.
Example: Dinner-6 oz. Lean protein, along with cruciferous veggies.

    Thanks so much for posting this. I have a fatty liver and my doctor says that my liver enzymes should go down when I take off the weight I've gained but I will definitely look into this.
