To help your body purge itself of stored toxins that can threaten your heart health and general well-being, try the following detox drink recipe once or twice a week.
Dr. Sinatra’s Best Detox Drink Recipe
4 to 6 ounces of one or two flavors of organic juices (dilute with an equal amount of water)
Up to one teaspoon of vitamin C powder (start with ¼ teaspoon and slowly increase the amount over time). I like the fine ascorbic acid powder from the Mary Clinic in New Orleans, available by calling (504) 833-4338 or online at www.maryclinic.com
A level teaspoon of glutamine powder. Glutamine, an amino acid, is a vital raw material for a healthy intestinal tract. It also helps the immune system and liver remove toxins. Glutamine powder is available at health-food stores.
A heaping teaspoon of psyllium powder. This fibrous plant material that helps clean out intestinal toxins that might otherwise be absorbed into the body and threaten heart health. Psyllium powder is available at health-food stores.
A heaping teaspoon of “greens.” Choose from a variety of powdered vegetable formulas rich in immune-boosting antioxidants and minerals for your detox drink recipe. Greens mixtures are available at health-food stores.
Pour the juice into a wide-mouthed glass jar. Add the powders. Shake up or blend. Add more or less juice and water according to taste.
Drink this detox drink recipe and clean out for a healthy heart!
