The best cleansing vegetables will add the most nutrition, the most fresh vitamin/mineral water with the least burden on the digestion. Even though all vegetables are cleansing, some have more cleansing qualities than others. These qualities are also dependent on how you consume your veggies.

Most organic, raw, fresh vegetables will work with a colon cleanse. These should be eaten during the day when the digestion is at its strongest. This will stimulate the cleansing process while strengthening your bodies ability to cleanse itself.

Eating fresh, organic veggies lightly steamed will work wonders in the evening. When lightly cooked so the veggies are at their brightest in color, you will benefit from most of the vitamins and minerals. At the same time, these are easier to digest than raw veggies, so eating them in the evening when the digestion slows down will be beneficial for most people.

Drinking fresh vegetable juice can help many people with health issues. It will give the body the nutrition it needs to heal itself. A good quality juicer will press most of the nutrients out of the vegetables and put them in the juice. Because you are drinking your nutrients, you will be able to absorb all of them even if your digestion is not in top shape.

Some of the best cleansing vegetables are these:

• Spinach which will provide the antioxidants needed to protect against cancer-causing toxins that may be traveling through your body on their way out during a cleanse.

• Carrots when eaten fresh and raw contain a phytonutrient that protects against colon cancer. this is extremely important since many toxins leave through the colon during a colon cleanse. In addition, the carrots contain cartenoids which may help regulate blood sugar – especially important while eating lighter during a cleanse.

• Celery juice is known to be one of the best cleansing vegetable juices. It helps regulate and strengthen the heart while at the same time adding highly nutritious vitamin/mineral water to the diet.

• Beet juice has gotten a bad rap because it contains a high amount of vegetable sugar. It is important to note that the body does not react to this the same way it reacts to table sugar. In fact, beet juice is one of the best strengtheners of the liver and kidneys which are the main cleansing organs! This juice is also known to be effective for strengthening and healing during the cleansing process even for those with candida – and does not aggravate the candida when used properly. (Drink no more than a half a beet per day.
