JUICE DETOX DRINK 6 – I AM DIVINE
I AM DIVINE is the sixth or Dessert drink recipe in our FREE JUICE DETOX. This final juice of the day is full of magnesium, which will help you sleep. If you are Magnesium deficient, it can result in insomnia, constipation, irritability, and pain, so this will help reduce that and allow Magnesium’s natural sedative to kick in for a deep sleep. The cinnamon will help regulate your blood glucose levels throughout the evening, preventing too much spiking since this delicious juice does contain dates for a natural sweetener! 🙂
This juice detox recipe can easily made with your power blender – but we have tested and you can make this recipe with regular blender as well however, you might want to strain it through a nut milk bag or two layers of cheesecloth.
Also – we recommend RAW and SOAKED almonds to remove the digestion inhibiting enzymes on the outside. Start soaking in the morning, they will be ready by dessert time! 🙂 If you are ALLERGIC to tree nuts, we recommend subbing the almonds with sunflower seeds.
Almonds reduce the risk of heart attack, lower bad cholesterol, protect artery walls from damage, andhelp to build strong bones and teeth. They provide healthy fats and aid in weight loss when used in moderation by providing the body with a full, satisfied feeling after consumption, as they control a minimal rise in blood sugar after meals.
Dates are easily digested sources of dietary fiber, copper, vitamins A, K, and B6, magnesium, manganese, niacin, and riboflavin, which help keep eyes, skin, mouth, and lungs healthy while also warding off cancer. Dates help your body to break down carbohydrates, proteins, and fats while providing lots of carbohydrates to keep your body going throughout the day and night.
Vanilla contains cancer-fighting antioxidants that target and neutralize free radicals in the body, reducing inflammation. As an extract, it can act as a mild tranquilizer or antidepressant, as well. The warmth and comfort of the extracted vanilla will have a positive affect on mental health as you wind down and get ready to sleep.
Cinnamon regulates blood sugar and improves blood glucose control. Just half a teaspoon of cinnamon every day can significantly reduce blood sugar levels, triglycerides, bad cholesterol, and total cholesterol levels in diabetics. Cinnamon also improves digestion, relieves congestion, and can reduce inflammation, including relieving pain and stiffness in joints due to arthritis.
