This light juice will help you ease your way into juicing fresh fruits and vegetables.
According to Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN and Nutritionist with rebootwithjoe.com “Cabbage contains sulfur based compounds and other phytonutrients that can promote natural detoxification in the liver. Cabbage’s plant compounds do this by “turning on” more proteins that make enzymes which are responsible for helping to package up and carry waste safely out of your liver then through your bloodstream to be eliminated from your body.”
