Dairy free, Gluten free, Low fat, Low GI, Wheat Free

Flaxseeds are a highly effective laxative. In water the kernels soak up an incredible amount of water to form mucilage which provides gentle relief from constipation and congestion. Combined with prunes and fresh vegetables this juice is extremely palatable and very effective.

8 prunes pitted and soaked in 0.5 cup water overnight
2 tbsp flaxseeds, soaked in 0.5 cup water overnight
3 stalks celery
½ lemon

Soak the prunes and flax seeds in 1 cup water overnight.

Juice the beetroot, carrot, celery and lemon. Add the juice to a blender with the prunes, flaxseeds and water and blend until smooth.

Note: The sugar in fresh juice is from fructose, a natural sugar. It can accelerate the removal of alcohol in the bloodstream and gives sperm the energy to move. Fructose is better taken in the natural form of fruit and although it is available as a sweetener, in excess it may accelerate the aging process, and increase the risk of heart disease, kidney stones and irritable bowel syndrome.
