Liver Flush Detox Drink – Recipe for a Daily Liver Cleanse

In an earlier blog post, I talked about the Liver/Gallbladder Flush and outlined the recipe to naturally release gallstones from the liver. In this post, I want to share with you the recipe for a standard Liver Flush Detox Drink. Think of this drink as a much more mild version of the actual gallstone flush…in fact, do not expect any gallstones to come out from this drink as it is not strong enough to trigger that reaction in the body. This drink is perfect for those who are looking to do some occasional mild detoxing of the liver from time to time or for anyone who is preparing to do a fast or cleanse as this drink helps the body to begin a gentle phase of pre-cleansing.

Recipe for a natural, gentle Liver Flush Cleanse

If you feel unwell after you have had this drink, it is a sign that your liver is detoxing rapidly and for sure you would benefit from additional cleansing, whether it be colon cleansing or liver cleansing. You can have this drink once a day for a period of time when you are working on your liver, and if you enjoy the taste, feel free to have it every day! It is all natural and a fantastic blend of Mother Nature’s cures!

Simple Ingredients for a Powerful Cleanse

Simple Ingredients for a Powerful Cleanse

The Liver Flush Daily Detox recipe:

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil – anywhere from 2 Tbsp. to 1/3 cup, as you prefer
  • Freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice, 1/3 cup
  • Fresh garlic, 3-5 cloves
  • Fresh ginger, 1/2″
  • Cayenne Pepper, dash to taste
  • Freshly squeezed orange juice, 2 cups

Put all ingredients in a blender, blend and drink immediately. Think about all the good you are doing for your body!! Enjoy!

Keep in mind that freshly squeezed apple juice is also an excellent liver cleanser as well as dark leafy bitter green juices, so feel free to switch it up a bit if you start to get bored from the Liver Flush Drink. Remember too that everything you eat and drink which is natural will be good for you body!

    I loved this drink. I used apples. I did feel somewhat ill about 30 minutes later so I guess I should do this more often

    Jennifer says:

    Raw Apple Cider Vinegar (acv) can be used, yes. You could add 1 capful to this drink. It will make the drink taste more sour, so be prepared! I personally love the taste of acv so I don’t mind! Another version if you don’t want the oil is this: water, 1 capful acv, juice of 2 limes or 1 lemon, cayenne, ginger and garlic, blended. Wow – a powerful cleanse and a great way to start the day!

    This is a good question and there seem to be varying opinions on it. Many people on the ‘net’ say that coconut oil is fine as a replacement. I personally follow the recipe from Dr. Hulda Clark which specifically advises on olive oil. I suppose you could try coconut oil, but perhaps the fat density is too high (meaning it solidifies at room temperature) for this flush. I’ve done this cleanse 14 times with excellent results using olive oil, and am happy to stay with what seems to work. I hope that helps!

    Shan says:

    Can I just go on this diet and drink this the whole day and not eat or drink anything else at all. One of my friend said that she did this (drink the liver flush juice and water) for 8 days and she feels really good after that. I am just worried if I might end up getting gastric or something…

  5. Jennifer
    Jennifer says:

    Hello Shan,

    I have personally never done a 100% Liver Flush Drink Cleanse, but there is no reason why you can’t do that. Really, it would just be a modified juice fast with some more focus towards liver cleansing. Olive oil is considered a food, so in my opinion, this would not be a true fast, but the oil being high in caloric density (9 calories per gram) should help to ward off any hunger. The garlic and ginger are very cleansing and also contain anti-viral and anti-parasitic properties. The orange juice is high in vitamin C. I would suggest that you make a plan to try to do 3 days and then re-assess how you feel. You can always continue if you are feeling good. It is also important to have a daily bowel movement or consider doing a daily enema if you extend longer than 3 days.

    Blessings,
    Jennifer

    I must admit this didn’t taste too bad, and you can tell this is going to be beneficial after drinking it.

  7. Jennifer
    Jennifer says:

    Hi Sharon, In my experience, I find large genetically modified garlic gloves from China (sold at every supermarket) to be very ‘stinky.’ If I buy organic garlic cloves, not only is the taste more mild (as it should be) but there is no ‘stinky’ permeation from the skin for days after. My advice: buy organic garlic cloves!

    Jennifer says:

    I am going to try this drink this weekend and I had one question about the recipe how much is 1/2″ of fresh ginger?

  9. Jennifer
    Jennifer says:

    Hi Jennifer, 1/2″ = 0.5 inches or 1.27 centimeters. As you cut the ginger, you can approximate the size of 0.5 inches x 0.5 inches, or measure it with a ruler if you are unsure. Thanks and good luck!

    Jennifer says:

    Wow I was amazed at how great this drink tasted. Are there any other drinks similiar to these one that have the same benefits? Or any foods?

    Kathy says:

    I have done several liver flushes over the years to remove gallstones, but sadly had to have my gallbladder removed last January. I am noticing some pain in the liver region and in my intestines and over all am tired a lot. Is this fine to do without a gallbladder?

  12. Kim
    Kim says:

    concerned about the amount of garlic ? I have done a cleanse before and eaten raw garlic (quite often in salad) but there was a few times when eating a clove of garlic that I had severe abdominal pain have you ever known this cleanse to have that effect ?

  13. Jennifer
    Jennifer says:

    You may have an intolerance to garlic (and other high sulfur foods like onion and cabbage). If so, then simply do not add any garlic to your drink! Blessings to your health!

  14. Liz
    Liz says:

    what about using real oranges vs using orange juice. I have the nutra blend so I would be using the WHOLE orange.

  15. Jennifer
    Jennifer says:

    Olive oil is the standard recommendation for this cleanse. People who have tried coconut oil have reported having little to no results, seemingly from the difference in type of fat. So, in a tropical climate, I would recommend that you buy extra virgin organic olive oil.

  16. Jennifer
    Jennifer says:

    Hi Becky, I feel very bad for anyone that would use this remedy as a band-aid for an unhealthy lifestyle and I do not recommend people to drink alcohol on a regular basis. If used correctly and for preventative purposes in alignment with a clean and healthy lifestyle, this cleanse can be very beneficial. If anyone has problems with addiction, I strongly advise them to seek professional help and emotional support. Blessings!

    Karen K. says:

    I just tried this drink for the first time last night and I felt great this morning! I’ve been tired and in some pain lately and wasn’t quite sure what was wrong. I’m a yoga teacher and live a very active and healthy lifestyle. I took an anatomy workshop this past weekend and figured out that I might need a liver flush. My blood wasn’t absorbing the nutrients from the food I was eating. Do you recommend doing this daily while at the same time eating foods that promote a healthy liver?

  18. Alfred
    Alfred says:

    Jennifer, not to be redundant, but I to had my gallbladder removed. Are there any considerations for this situation prior to trying this liver cleanse? One other question is how often should I do this liver cleanse? Thanx

  19. Jennifer
    Jennifer says:

    Hi Alfred, I am very sorry that for legal reasons, I can only advise you to consult your medical doctor. This website is for informational purposes only. Thank you so very much for your kind understanding and I wish you all the best for vibrant health!

  20. Jennifer
    Jennifer says:

    Freshly squeezed organic orange juice is best. This is a drink, not a smoothie, so there should be no fiber (whole oranges) in the drink. As a liquid drink with no fiber, the oil will go to the liver very fast and stimulate cleansing. Fiber slows down that process. Of course, you can always try with your whole orange and see if you like it….it’s certainly better than not drinking it at all! Thanks and many blessings to your health!

  21. Jennifer
    Jennifer says:

    Hi Leah, It depends on your goal. If you are doing a raw food cleansing diet or some kind of change of diet/lifestyle, like giving up alcohol, coffee or cigarettes, you can do this flush every day for 30 days, for example, to help the liver detoxify. For maintenance, you can have it 2-3 times per week.

    Hi – can I do this milder version of a liver cleanse while I am nursing my 9-mo. I am having some thyroid issues and would like to start with a diet detox and try to avoid having to wean my daughter earlier than I had planned. Thank you :)

    Some of u mention that it mskes u feel sick. What does that mean? Is it like nausea or headaches or what exactly

  24. Cindy
    Cindy says:

    Is there a recommended time to do this clense? Morning? Empty stomach? Full stomach? Restrictions like no dairy?

  25. Jennifer
    Jennifer says:

    It’s usually best to drink on an empty stomach. I prefer first thing in the morning, so I have the time to prepare it and don’t get lazy and put it off later in the day.

    Ideally, one should be on a “no dairy diet” because dairy is mucous-forming and a nutritionally empty food. Of course non-organic dairy is full of anti-biotics and hormones as well…can you see what a contradiction to health it is to have dairy on one hand and do a liver flush drink on the other?

    Be sure you are ready for long-term changes in health when using this drink. It complements a healthy diet, so focus on a healthy diet first! Good health is for the rest of your life!

    Many blessings to your vibrant health!

I plan on buying a Liver Detox Recipe book this weekend but I was also planning on starting with a 3 day fast so that I can prepare my taste buds for a change.

    Can you drink a cappuccino without milk? Well yes of course, but then it’s no longer a cappuccino!

    This drink works because of the ingredients in the recipe. If you cannot get the ingredients, then you’re close, but not on the target for making a real liver flush drink. Keep in mind that you can order Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and organic cayenne pepper online and have it shipped anywhere in the world for just $4 on international shipping if your order is under 4 pounds.. here, I’ve already found the products for you…click on this link: http://www.iherb.com/tr/cb?pcodes=FLO-62273_SOG-18761&rcode=JHJ003

    Hi, when you say blend do you mean juice the oranges and lemon and blend the rest with the juice in a blender? Thanks.

  33. Jennifer
    Jennifer says:

    Hi Lynn,

    Yes! Fresh orange juice means you press the oranges to make a juice. Fresh lemon juice means you press the lemons to make a juice. You can use a simple citrus hand-press and it takes about 1 minute to make the juice needed for this recipe. No juicer required. After the citrus juice is made, you add it to the blender with the remaining ingredients. Bless!

    Cherie says:

    Hi, it says anywhere from 2tbsp to 1/3 cup olive oil, does using more olive oil mean it will work better??

  35. Jennifer
    Jennifer says:

    It will be stronger using more olive oil, but mind you…it will be very high in fat then and you might not want to have so much fat from oil every day. If you want to have this drink continuously, I recommend 2 Tablespoons of olive oil per day. Thanks!!

    Donna says:

    I’m looking forward to trying this and am glad I came across your recipe. Many other ones include epsom salts but I can’t find an epsom salt package that says its safe to take internally. So I’m trying your recipe tomorrow. So would you take this daily, forever? Thanks!

    Cat says:

    When I drink the juice in the morning, how long should I wait to eat?

    I tried it for the first time this morning – it tastes great! It’s already helping to clear my sinuses; I’m hoping it’s doing the same thing for my liver!

    Thanks!!

    Ryan says:

    So I modified this a bit because I have severe candida and didn’t want to overload my body with sugar so I skip the orange juice. I have been drinking it for about a week and have started to see little green gallstones come out of me. Nothing like the big ones you get during a liver flush but this drink has helped me immensely – my energy has improved,, my skin is getting better and the whites of my eyes are slowly returning to normal. Thank you so much for posting this amazing recipe! I plan on drinking this daily throughout my candida detox since it’s been helping with die off symptoms as well!
