Full Answer

Drinking fresh apple juice breaks down toxins and encourages bowel movements. One option for an apple juice cleanse is to drink a glass of fresh apple juice followed 30 minutes later by a glass of water. Repeating this several times a day for three consecutive days and avoiding solid food promotes the cleanse.

Lemon juice is an antioxidant that is high in vitamin C. Drinking a glass of water mixed with the juice of a lemon, a pinch of sea salt and a bit of honey works as a colon detoxifier. This mixture should be drunk on an empty stomach in the morning and followed throughout the day by several glasses of lemon juice mixed with fresh apple juice.

Raw vegetable juices also help to remove toxins from the body. Green vegetables are beneficial as they contain chlorophyll and are rich in vitamins and minerals. Using a juicer or blender is an easy way to make vegetable juices at home. Herbal tea is also suitable for drinking during a cleanse.
