Let’s go with the green’n’sour to clean up a bit! Starting from celery – the best for a “naughty Liver”- that can purify its excess of Fire, move up the Qi in case of stasis and at the same time nourishes the Blood. Following up with spinaches, loyal companions in purifying Heat and nourishing Fluids and Blood. The sour taste of green apples and lemon reinforces the direction of this drink on the Liver while the final touch of mint moves everything up and can help us get rid of headache.

Phase 3: refill

You will need:

  • Beetroot;
  • carrots;
  • strawberries;
  • cinnamon;
  • ice cubes.
