Cleaning The Liver With Raisins: Traditional Russian Medicine’s Recipe

It is well known  that the liver represents  a so called  biochemical laboratory of the human body, where more complex processes take place.

One of the many functions the liver  performs is  detoxification. Excessive intake of medicines, improper diet and certain bacterial and viral infections  often leave severe consequences and  pose a threat to the liver’s well functioning.


The liver (hepar) acts like a blood factory in the body. It helps the organism to strengthen and stimulate digestion as well as to clean the  blood and remove all the toxins and waste products found in it.

According to this  it is clear that a clean liver gives the body health, vitality, energy, fresh look and a good mood .

Liver cleansing using  black grapes starts with the following procedure: First, choose high quality raisins. Be aware that  nowadays high quality raisins aren’t always available in the nearest market or store. When buying raisins, avoid choosing  very light, yellowish raisins.

Bright colored raisins come as a result of  sulfur dioxide treatment or in the best case, due to inappropriate drying rules. Also don’t choose the  “glowing” looking  raisins . The chances are very high that they have also been chemically treated.

Raisins with high quality  are not shiny , wrinkled, not too soft nor too hard (similar to soft rubber). They  must be preserved and not damaged.

Good raisins have to be dark or brown coloured ( if it comes to brighter grape variety – then raisins have light brown color). There are also black raisins with a bluish shade, made by dehydrating darker vine types.

It would be ideal if you can find raisins along with their small stems, which is one of the main indicators of naturally produced raisins. Once you select the best and chemical-free raisins, you can start preparing the following recipe which will help you cleanse your liver.
