I find more and more people are embracing detoxification with the understanding that it’s an essential part maintaining and achieving optimum health. With the chemical bombardment we endure in our daily lives, eating a clean diet alone isn’t enough. Periodic detoxification efforts are needed. Detoxing doesn’t mean an intense 7 day fast on nothing but water. You can do a gentler and more mild cleanse by incorporating ingredients like ginger into your smoothies.
Smoothies featuring orange
There’s nothing like a tall refreshing glass of OJ in the morning – except for this outrageously orange smoothie. This is the perfect smoothie for orange lovers with its sweet and tangy taste.
Oranges are renowned for their vitamin C content, but what other nutritional benefits do they offer? They contain a variety of phytonutrients, which when combined with vitamin C provide significant antioxidant protection and immune system support. The phytonutrients found in oranges have been shown to lower high blood pressure and cholesterol in animal studies.
