This is detoxing 101

Post-winter blues getting you down? It’s time to shake things up and we don’t mean behind the bar. Introducing three wonderful – and maybe a little weird – concoctions mixed up by Jack Graham. As the master juice mixologist (yes that’s a thing) over at hip London health hang-out Raw Press, there’s no one better for the job. Thought argan oil was just for your hair? Think again.

Let’s get mixing…

INDEX

Reishi mushrooms have been used historically to strengthen the immune system, relieve stress and cleanse the liver.

Turmeric is an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory that ordinarily isn’t that well absorbed into the body, but is fat-soluble. It therefore becomes even more potent when combined with argan oil, which itself boasts numerous benefits including lowering bad cholesterol.

The sea buckthorn berry contains some of the highest amounts of vitamin C found in fruit. They have a strong citrusy aroma and have become naturalised around Britain’s coastlands.

Activated charcoal is another ingredient that has been super-popular in juicing circles over the past year or two, and is the perfect way to detoxify the system from various toxins.
