This powerful liver cleanser is a delicious way to reap the rewards of beetroot benefits. Beet juice is a powerful liver cleanser and it’s high in betalains and other compounds that provide anti-inflammatory benefits. For this liver cleanse juice, we add apple, lemon, parsley and ginger for an incredible combination of flavors.
Adding homemade fresh juice to your daily wellness plan is an easy way to boost your immune system. This beet juice is a favorite of mine and I make it at least once a week.

Are Beets Good For You
Yes! Beetroot benefits your whole body! Beets are rich with vitamins (folate), minerals (potassium and iron), antioxidants (vitamin C), and fiber. Betalains are the reddish pigments found in certain fruits and vegetables (like beets). These betalains are rich with phytonutrients that provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and detoxification benefits.
Health Benefits of Beet Juice
- Improves Blood Flow
- Reduce Blood Pressure
- Detoxifies The Liver
- Helps with Iron Deficiency and Anemia
- Good for Muscles (may increase muscle strength)
- Treats Inflammation
The combination of these natural ingredients makes for a powerful liver cleanse drink.
- Beets: Beetroot benefits have been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and vascular-protective effects benefits. (1) They also contain lutein and zeaxanthin which offer support for eye health.
- Apples: Heart-healthy apples provide important polyphenols (quercetin) that are rich with antioxidant properties. The apples added to this liver detox provides just the right amount of sweetness. a
- Parsley: Parsley contains a substance called chlorophyll, which has been shown to detoxify, purify and rejuvenate our bodies. The anti-inflammatory properties found in parsley help build strong blood and renew tissues. You can read more here about the benefits of parsley.
- Ginger: Ginger is rich with anti-inflammatory properties. You can read more here about the health benefits of ginger.
- Lemon: Rich with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immune-boosting, alkalizing and detoxifying benefits.
Beetroot Benefits for Skin
Our skin has two layers: the outer layer (epidermal) and inner layer (dermal) which provides strength and elasticity and nutritional support to the outer layer. Skin contains high concentrations of vitamin C and vitamin C stimulates collagen synthesis. As we age our bodies produce less collagen (the most abundant form of protein found in the body) and the lack of collagen can result in wrinkles and sagging skin. With healthy collagen levels, skin tends to be smooth and firm. You can help boost collagen levels by consuming foods that are rich with vitamin C – like beetroot, citrus and other fruits and vegetables. (2)
I love adding beets to my salads! It’s a great way to sneak this healthy root into your diet. And, even if you’re not a big fan of beets, tossing them in salads (dripping with delicious homemade salad dressings) just might change your mind about things.
