According to Dr. Alejandro Junger, "Father of the Detox," nurturing your digestive system and “cleaning the gut” is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Use this shopping list and prebiotic shake recipe to accompany his 3-Day Jumpstart Cleanse.
Dr. Junger's cleanse is designed to repair your gut layer by layer, thus enhancing your digestion and energy levels. For three days, he suggests starting the day with a prebiotic shake and taking a series of supplements that will help promote healthy gut flora and nuture both your immune and digestive systems. For all of Dr. Junger's guidelines and recommendations, read the complete 3-Day Jumpstart Cleanse plan.
For the prebiotic shake, you will need the following:
10 oz almond milk
1/2 cup blueberries
1 medium banana
1 handful baby spinach
1 scoop plant-based protein powder
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
Blend and enjoy!
Note: Before starting any cleanse, make sure to consult your physician, especially if you have a medical condition like diabetes. Also, don’t participate if you’re pregnant or nursing. Detoxes are also not a substitute for medical diagnoses or treatment.
