Why do we use fruit and vegetable smoothie/juices for fasts?
1) Most people are very deficient in nutrients. These smoothies provide the nutrients that encourage
detoxification, cleansing, regeneration & healing.
2) Most people are extremely deficient in enzymes. These
smoothies provide enzymes that encourage cleansing and healing.
3) Smoothies contains the whole fruit and vegetable, proving much needed fiber. Fiber enhances the bowel function and the cleansing process. It provides food for the correct bowel flora. Balances blood sugar levels and stops you feeling hungry. Nothing but fruit and vegetables.

Here is a list of fruit and vegetables we use in our smoothies with a brief explanation of each ones cleansing and healing properties.

Lemon Juice – adds a zesty clean taste. Lemon is renowned for being very alkaline forming in the body and extremely good for the liver, a major detoxifying organ.

Ginger – is often added, it is anti-inflammatory, increases the circulation, encourages the detoxification process and more.

Pineapple – full of enzymes that add cleansing and detoxification, also anti-inflammatory.

Passion fruit – soothes the digestive tract, rich in Vitamin C, antioxidants, plus magnesium – many people do not get enough magnesium (needed for a good functioning bowel, nervous system and muscles).

Blueberries, blackberries and raspberries – very rich in anti-oxidants and are extremely cleansing.

Watermelon – is extremely good for cleansing and hydrating the body, combats bloating and puffiness.

Canteloupe Melon – rich in antioxidants and beta-carotene, hydrating, good for healthy mucus membranes, skin and lungs.

Papaya – is a potent detoxifier and is crammed with beta-carotene. Papaya contains an enzyme called papain.

Celery – helps to cleanse joints, as well as having a diuretic effect (reduces fluid retention). Helps to cleanse the body of sodium deposits.

Carrot – excellent source of beta-carotene (body converts what it needs to vitamin A) carrots are renowned for being good for the liver. The liver is a major cleansing organ.

Parsley – good source of minerals and chlorophyll, a powerful cleanser, very good blood purifier and is great for stimulating the bowels. Good for the kidneys and acts as a diuretic helping to solve fluid retention problems. It reduces coagulants in the veins and helps to clear or prevent kidney stones. Parsley is a very affective cleanser, rich in chlorophyll and anti-oxidants.

Cucumber – cleanses the whole system, aids in digestion, a good diuretic (reduces fluid retention), a mild laxative, helps flush out the kidneys and the bladder, and helps to dissolve uric acid build-up.

Soursop (Guanabana), Custard Apples (Chirimoya) – excellent for cleansing, anti-oxidant rich and anti-cancerous.

Zucchini (courgette) – encourages a healthy digestion, generally detoxifies, lowers cholesterol, mild laxative and diuretic properties. Helps the liver function better, aids the metabolism, and helps stabilise blood sugar levels.

Cabbage – heals the digestive lining in general, rich in vitamin U good for healing ulcers, very effective cleanser. Use white, red and green cabbage plus spring cabbage and Chinese cabbage (this one is my favourite).

Guava – good for the skeletal and lymphatic system, helps the body in combating free-radicals, helps ease constipation, strengthens the digestive system, lowers cholesterol and helps improve the texture of the skin.

Beetroot – excellent blood purifier and good for the liver.

Naranjilla – high levels of vitamin c, rich in fiber, iron and water. Diuretic properties, helps with sleep, relieves symptoms of nervousness, encourages strong hair, nails and bones, contains a compound that helps cholesterol levels.

Chayote – helps cleanse kidneys and the bladder.

Mango – extremely good for cleansing and detoxifying, especially the kidneys and the blood stream. They also strengthen and invigorate all the nerve tissues and muscles, heart and other parts of the body. The fruit cleanses the body, and helps the immune system fight infections.

Fennel bulb – excellent anti-inflammatory properties, good for joint health and the immune system.

Tree tomatoes (nothing like ordinary tomatoes) – is considered a fruit that relieves stress, headaches, helps treat obesity, colds, sore throats, liver diseases, diabetes, improves the immune and circulatory systems.

Pumpkin and squash – rich in beta-carotene, a powerful anti-oxidant that the body uses to convert into vitamin A by the liver. Beta-carotene is excellent for the health of the skin, lungs and the bowel lining.

Apples – are high in antioxidants, flavonoids and fibre like most fruits and vegetables. Apples however, are high in a particular fibre called pectin. All fibre is good at cleansing but pectin is particularly good for cleansing the colon and flushing toxins out of your system. The high pectin content in apples helps removes cholesterol and the residues of toxic metals. Apples are particularly good at helping to cleanse your liver and gallbladder.

Pears – good for the thyroid function.

Grapefruit – cleansing and cardiovascular health.

Various dark green leaves (kale, collard, cabbage, watercress, spinach etc etc) – good source of minerals and chlorophyll, a powerful cleanser, very good blood purifier and is great for stimulating the bowels. Strengthens the blood especially if you are prone to anaemia.

The detox juice fast smoothies to a degree are reliant on what is available and in season at any given time.
