The celery and cucumbers are water rich and will provide the base for this juice. If you are unable to get parsley or mint leaves, you could always try dandelion greens, watercress, spinach or arugula as well.
We added the bone broth collagen to add in a really great protein for your body but if you would prefer to do this without the protein that is good as well! The organic bone broth collagen I use is unique in that it also has a high dose of the adaptogenic herb ashwaghanda which is fantastic for helping to improve energy, mental clarity, sleep quality and your overall vibe in life!
Dr Jockers Comments
This collagen boost green juice is very refreshing and cleansing on the body. It contains nutrients that support liver and kidney function and help the body to produce new collagen for healthy skin, hair, nails, joints and gut lining.
Collagen protein is a missing piece in modern diets which consist of nearly 100% muscle meats. Our ancestors used to consume the collagenous joints and bones of animals as they would use every part. Our society only focuses on the muscle meats and is missing out on the key glycosaminoglycans and amino acids glycine, proline, hyroxy-proline that are so vital to a healthy body. Adding in a scoop or two of high quality bone broth or collagen protein helps to get you the key amino acid balance you need.
Parsley, mint, ginger, celery and cucumber are all fantastic for the drainage pathways of the body which include the liver, kidneys, lymphatic system, respiratory system, intestines and colon. These veggies and herbs help to flush out toxins and support cellular and tissue wide cleansing of the body.
