Kidney Cleanse (Juicer Recipe)

This juice is an excellent detoxifier.  The cucumber and celery work as diuretics expelling extra water and flushing out the kidneys.  This juice is also very high in vitamin C.

Note: Parsley should not be consumed in large quantities if pregnant of suffering from kidney inflammation as it works as a uterine stimulant.

Ingredients
  • 4 sprigs parsley
  • 1 cucumber
  • 3-4 stalks organic celery (with our without leaves)
  • 1/2 lemon


This combination should produce approximately 2 1/2 cups of juice.

  5. Good question, that would depend on how well you want to detox. For a full kidney flush I would consult a professional. To just improve your kidney and help clean it I would drink this daily along with lots of water and clean foods for a few days. Always avoid alcohol, sugar and caffeine.
