Detoxifying the liver is important to promote efficiency of the liver to metabolize, store, and synthesize energy transferred from our food. This is to ensure our body is using nutrients proficiently.

I’ll be drinking these a few times next week myself!
Flavia, this may be a silly question, but should the asaparagus be cooked or raw? Thanks!
Not a silly question. If you have cooked ones, use them but raw is better!
this sounds good ~ a lot less $ then milk thistle 🙂 Reflexology is always great too.
this sounds great. but what about when asparagus is not in season? Canned? i would not think canned would be great for a toxic liver cleanse….any ideas?
You could use broccoli or spinach. Asparagus also has a natural diuretic effect so it is great when you can use it.
Did not known it was that easy !
I’m going to definitively try this..I drink about 4 cups of green tea daily..does green tea cleanse the liver?
Yes and so much more. Green tea is really great for your insides 🙂
Good for the liver? Ok nice! But mainly it looks really refreshing to me and thats why I am going to try this one for sure! Thanks Flavia!
OMG, what a great idea. This is your best recipe yet. Thank you so much. I’ll be making one as soon as I get home from the grocery store!
Am I the only one that can’t stand asparagus??? What else could I use?
LOL…my husband hates it too! Broccoli will work 🙂
Do you drink this in place of a meal or with a meal? Or does it not matter?
No it doesn’t relpace a meal. Add it to your day when you can, in between meals would be the most beneficial and first thing in the morning to help balance your PH balance that is acidic first thing in the am.
I’m definitely going to give the detox a try Flavia. Question: Anxiously waiting to see the pictures from the photo shoot. I am excited to see the continued transformation to your body with the additional muscle. Plus, I’m anxious to hear the success of your 3lb fat loss goal for the photo shoot. Any updates on that?
Hey Flavia, one quick question: I am trying to eat broccoli every day, and I enjoy eating it steamed, but don’t like it near as much raw. Is raw that much more nutritious?
As long as you leave some crunch to the broccoli, meaning, do not overcook your foods, you should be just fine!
ok, great! thank you so much!
Thank you, Flavia, for this tip. I didn’t know that. I’ll try that every week!
Hello everyone out there in the getting fit world I just got all of my ingredients and can’t wait to try this……and it taste….. YUMMY….BUT!!! VERY TARTY!!!
….But I can live with this 🙂 Thanks Flavia
I tried it tonight. A little tart. I added some cilantro, garlic, and salt. It is great. Thanks for the ideas!
Sound yummy! Thanks
A terrific drink. Are there “sulfites” in the the asparagus? Would that explain why there is a change of aroma to my urine? Seems to have affected me that way. is that ok?
Asparagus just gives your urine a smell….it happens everytime to me too…
Hi would this be any good before bedtime or on an empty stomach in the AM?
Not before bed as you want to eat protein and fats as your last meal to control hormone levels as you sleep. First thing in the am would be ok also but you need to eat more protein with this meal.
ideally, how long before going to bed should you have your last protein/fat meal?
That depends on when you started your day and when you trained. If you just trained at 9pm…still eat after. If you started your day late and only got in 4 meals, have one before you go to bed if that is the time to squeeze in that last meal. Try to eat right after waking up and every 3 hours after for a total of 5 to 6 meals (6th being the post-workout) and don’t worry about the time. If you are not hungry and it is late…skip it, but don’t make this a habit.
ok, thanks. I usually workout first thing in the morning because if I don’t then I really don’t want to do it 🙂
That’s totally fine. Try to get 5-6 meals in a day all within 3 hours of each other and don’t worry too much about the time of day per se
I really like your site. It is very informative.
Thanks, Flavia! 🙂
How often should we attempt this liver cleanse?
At least once a week but you can have this drink as often as you like.
Thank a lot!
Hi! I love this drink, I have been drinking it a few times a week for the last month! I am wondering if substituting Lime instead of Lemon would have the same detox benefit?
No, lemon is the key detox ingredient. But you can add lime as well.
with the vegtable drinks and fruit drinks is it ok to use frozen vegtables and frozen fruit rather than fresh?
Can I drink this first thing in the am instead of coffee?
Absolutely! That would be great Lisa 🙂
All the best!

Would it be ok to alternate the 2 different liver detox recipes everyother day? I’ve been drinking the beet recipe morning and night and I was thinking to switch it up with this one.
Excellent article.. anyone have missed alot of syntax whenever i actually finally first got it runningno far more large record errors: D No worries, thankful the notion and strategy is of usage up to the code. Without a doubt I might refactor the code easily needed the item once again: ) Finest, Vincent rapid Received extra 300 megabytes as a result of anyone, and also the review I worked on the ferry on my macbook had been cloned to the pc in the office could I travelled to the office and the iphone at the same time! Simply great, also it functions undoubtedly better than icloud.
We cannot think a person couldnt mention JANGO. com, that i really like ha, i understand, jango is the best plus they don’t know that Why not consider shuffleer simple to operate google chrome ext that provides that you report on styles to choose from plus it trawls through sites and sites to find excellent msuic for you personally take a look Issue with all of these is if a person tune in to whatever really underground most likely screwed. Very last. fm has advised me personally a lot of distinct, under the palpeur performers awesome yet We can in no way locate whatever else about these performers through the sites as listed above. Total web sites are useful for what these kinds of are created for so I aren’t party some of them. Great info.
