Detox Smoothie Recipe for Boosting Kidney Health

    Keeping a pure and healthy body is a major responsibility carried out by our kidneys. Their job is to separate waste and toxins from the good stuff in our body and flush them out to keep our bodies functioning properly. While the kidneys do a pretty good job at this, it can be nice to lend a helping time now and then by enjoying this detox smoothie recipe.

    One of the best things you can do to lighten the burden put on your kidneys is to eat a mostly plant-based diet, as fruits and vegetables often contain helpful nutrients that boost kidney health and limit the workload kidneys are often faced with.

    This detox smoothie recipe is a fantastic way to increase your intake of vital nutrients and can be enjoyed as a substitute for less healthy meals every now and then.

    Not only does the water content and lemon in this detox smoothie help flush out toxins from the body, but the smoothie is also free of animal products, dairy, sugar, and salt, which are just a handful of the irritants that make the kidneys’ job harder.

    While this detox smoothie recipe may not be as enticing as a peanut butter banana smoothie, it will definitely make you feel refreshed and rejuvenated after consuming it. We like to enjoy this smoothie after a weekend of indulgence or when we’re feeling like our system is particularly sluggish and in need of a boost.
