Yummy, healthy, and very easy to make!
Our liver plays a very important role in keeping us alive. It makes blood proteins, clotting proteins, lipoproteins, and 80% of our cholesterol. It filters blood, makes bile, makes and breaks down hormones, regulates blood sugar, and changes harmful toxins into substances that can be safely eliminated from the body. And this is just a small list of liver functions!
Having a healthy liver is one step towards a long life, and taking care of it can be easy—if you have discipline, that is! To keep your liver healthy and clean, a balanced diet with low fat content would be well suited to prevent fatty liver, and alcohol is best avoided, too!
However, this home-made juice drink can make wonders for your liver—and it is easy to make.
What you will need:
A handful of fresh mint leaves
Water (1 liter)
How to make it:
Step 1: Boil the water.
Step 2: Add the mint leaves and allow to boil for another 5 minutes.
Step 3: Remove the water and mint mixture from heat and allow to cool down.
Step 4: Once the mint water has cooled down, add orange and lemon juice to the mix, together with lemon rind and honey. Stir until well-mixed
Step 5: Enjoy a delicious drink, and protect your liver as well!
