4). Pink Detox
Best consumed in the morning. Don’t eat anything for at least two hours before or afterwards – beets is a powerful detoxifier. The apples make this sweet and delicious, the celery freshens it up and the ginger gives it a little kick AND soothes the stomach.

3 red apples, juiced with seeds
4 stalks celery with its green, juiced
1 inch-long piece of ginger, juiced or grated
Juice everything. Small pieces tend to get lost in juicer, so make sure to wedge them in between apple-quarters, which helps. otherwise just grate the ginger and stir it in separately.
5). Cabbage Clean
The cabbage and the per rid the colon of waste matter and the celery purifies the lymph. Most people have heard of the cabbage soup diet but many don’t know why cabbage is such good detoxifier. It aids digestion and prevents both fluid retention and constipation and its benefits are noticed almost immediately. it is perfect for juicing as its nutrients are more abundant when raw. In fact, many nutritionists call cabbage the perfect food. Celery, watercress and pears are the ideal accompaniments as they also contribute to the detoxification process.
