Tidbits:

  • All ingredients in this salad are intended for cleansing the liver.   
  • Liver is the primary filter for cleansing the blood and also metabolizes hormones, toxins, and other substances that enter the bloodstream and also stores carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.   
  • Beets- keep fat from depositing in the liver, giving the liver a break from all the hard work. 
  • Flax oil- absorbs up to 8 times its own weight in water and helps material to move through the intestine.
