What's the best apple for a liver cleanse?

Your liver is essential for removing toxins from your body. Apples and apple juice are recommended to consume prior to a liver cleanse because the malic acid in the juice helps to open the ducts that run through the liver, allowing the liver to more easily be flushed. Consider making your own juice for the pre-cleanse.

For juicing, Red Delicious is a favorite for its sweetness and high antioxidant count. Granny Smith is an option for those tart apple lovers.

Pro tips

  • Throw a few different veggies into your juice for extra health benefits, like spinach and carrots.
  • Work fresh apple juice into your regular diet. Not only is it cleansing, but studies have shown it may delay the onset of Alzheimer’s and reduce the risk of heart disease.
