Dr. Brian Clement, co-Director of Hippocrates Health Institute is a huge advocate of drinking fresh, green juices and is sharing one of his favorite green juice recipes with us. If you don’t drink green juice on a regular basis, here are a few reasons to consider slipping a few of these power-packed drinks into your daily routine!
1.Detoxifies the body – It’s very cleansing and assists in the removal of toxins that people absorb everyday
2.Fosters healthy weight loss
3. Helps to alkalize the body (This is important as many diseases thrive in acidic conditions)
4. Strengthens your immune system
5. Gives you more energy (because juicing reduces the energy your body needs to digest foods)
Brian Clement drinks two liters of juice a day and over half of that is made of sprouts, which are 30 times more nutritious than even the best vegetables! This juice combines two different types of sprouts: pea sprouts and sunflower sprouts.
