Did you know that juicing high-glycemic vegetables can affect the intricate physiology of the body? Doctor Ginger Southall’s new book The Rainbow Juice Cleanse (Running Press, 2015) showcases how juicing with all colors of the rainbow can ensure the best possible nutrition profile. This excerpt explains the benefits of the rainbow juice cleanse.

My favorite juice of all time—and an alkaline nutritional powerhouse at that!—this juice delivers the right hook to a toxic body. The high-protein sprouts are more nutritious than your most nourishing veggies, so enjoy them in this juice and add them to others for extra nutrients. Add the garlic and/or ginger for added nutritional properties.
