Fight Silent Parasites with This Elixir

Unknown to us, intestinal parasites are a common issue in humans and are often overlooked. These can throw off gut health and cause a host of side effects. Fortunately, there are natural foods which aid in parasite elimination and can be combined to make an effective liquid elixir. To make your own at home, read on for my personal homemade recipe.

How to Make an Antiparasitic Elixir

For this recipe, we will be using kale, flaked coconut, cinnamon, honey, cranberry-pomegranate juice and beets. You may find these at your local grocery store and should be able to find all of the listed ingredients for under $15. Other ingredients you are welcome to add in are raw: carrots, garlic, pomegranate, pumpkin seeds, onion and papaya seeds, as well as pineapple, lemon juice, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon and dates.

Beetroot: Beets are a root vegetable boasting numerous benefits including anti-inflammation, blood pressure regulation and a high source of fiber. This root vegetable is well-known for its antiparasitic properties, so it was a must for our recipe. Here, we used cooked beets but using raw beets in your drink is preferable if possible.

Kale: Kale is a famous super-food; rich in vitamins, fiber, antioxidants, iron and other minerals, this plant is often consumed to boost overall health. Kale is also rich in chlorophyll – an agent which can stop the growth of microorganisms, such as parasites, in the digestive system.

Pomegranate and Cranberry: Pomegranate is known for its anthelmintic properties – meaning it destroys parasites by stunning or killing them. Pomegranate is also known for its immune system boosting properties, antioxidants and anticancer properties. This fruit is a necessity for anyone’s diet.

For our recipe, we used cranberry-pomegranate juice, but it’s even better if you are able to find pomegranate seeds nearby.

If using pomegranate seeds, be sure you still use cranberry juice for this recipe. Your best bet is to use a natural, unsweetened cranberry juice. Cranberries help the body naturally maintain the gut microbiome and reduce parasites.

Coconut: Naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial, coconuts are another excellent source of antiparasitic. This is an item you will want to ensure is unsweetened if using coconut flakes as parasites feed off of added sugars. An alternative option is coconut oil as it provides the same benefits of flaked coconut.

Honey: When pulling together ingredients for a parasite remedy, you have to reach for the jar of honey! Honey is another antimicrobial agent which can help eliminate parasites from the body. Its unique benefit is the ability to inhibit parasitic movement within the body. Apart from its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antidiabetic properties, honey also adds a natural sweetness to this recipe.

Cinnamon: Cinnamon is another ingredient known for its antimicrobial, antibacterial and antiparasitic properties. This wonder spice is also able to aid in reducing bloating as its high antioxidant content protects against aging and inflammation.

For this recipe, I used powdered cinnamon. To combine all of the ingredients, you will also need to have a blender on-hand.

  • 1 cup of kale
  • ⅓ cup coconut flakes
  • ½ teaspoon of honey
  • 1 beet – cooked or uncooked
  • ½ teaspoon of powdered cinnamon
  • 1 cup of cranberry-pomegranate juice
  1. Wash kale and pull off stalks.
  2. Put kale in the blender. Add in the ⅓ cup of coconut flakes.Fight Silent Parasites with This Elixir -add coconut flakes
  3. Add in ½ teaspoon of honey and a whole beet. As mentioned, the one pictured is cooked so it may look slightly different if you’re using a raw beet.
  4. Add ½ a teaspoon of cinnamon and a cup of cranberry-pomegranate juice.
  5. Blend and enjoy! For an iced version, feel free to add in ice before blending.

When it comes to parasites, knowing what foods help aid in elimination is key to balancing a healthy gut. Using this recipe on a consistent basis will provide you with much-needed parasite relief as well as all of the benefits mentioned earlier including; immune system boosting properties, antioxidants, antimicrobial benefits and protective effects.

How often do we drink this?

I will drink it twice a day for a week then skip a week and do it again. At least once a year after.

Hi Rebecca,

You can drink this once a day, preferably in the morning on an empty stomach, for a week or two. You can alternate this smoothie with another antiparasitic remedy of your choice.

Many blessings and good health!

That actually sounds tasty, too. I would throw in some pumpkin seeds if I had them. It says honey is anti diabetic. Really, or was that a mistake?

Hi Pam,

It’s a great idea to add pumpkin seeds to the mix! Raw Honey can be used by people with diabetes as a sugar substitute, however, it should still be eaten in moderation.

Many blessings and good health!

In the ingredient list it says 1 cup of kale. But in the instructions, it calls for 2 cups of kale. Which is at 1 or 2?

Hi Jane.

Thank you for your interest in this article! We apologize for the confusion.
The author of this recipe used 1 cup of kale.

Many blessings and good health!

I planned to make this, but the recipe is poorly written. The amounts change and/or are repeated more than once in the recipe directions. Also, the ingredients should be written in order of use. You change that order in the directions. Would be glad to help you write recipes more efficiently.

Once you get all your ingredients prepared and ready to go, it should make no difference what order it is in. I’d say 1 cup of kale would be adequate for one person and you drink this when you need it.

Come on you are joking right. It is very clear and who cares throw in a little extra it would do more good than harm


Thank you so much for your feedback! It’s very important for us.
We’ve corrected the mistakes and also made some changes according to your suggestions.

Many blessings and good health!

Hello! I’m excited to try this but I have a question. You said parasites feed on sugar. Isn’t honey basically sugar? Are we defeating the purpose by adding honey to the recipe? Thank you😊

Check out that cranberry juice; most commercial juices have 1!high fructose corn syrup!!

Hi Heather,

Thank you for your question. Some studies suggest that honey combined with herbs could actually help flush parasites, even though honey indeed contains some sugar.
You can leave out the honey if you are more comfortable that way.

Many blessings and good health!

Would this be beneficial for tick borne illnesses? I have RMSF and STARI. Or do you have another suggestion? Thank you.

The first time I made it the texture was gritty the second time I cooked it in our Ninja blender as a thin soup. It was allot less gritty and smoother. W then poured it into pint jars and put it in the fridge. In the morning I would add a little more cran- pomegranate juice and drink before breakfast.
Will cooking it like that take anything away from it?

Often times cooking things removes the medicinal properties from them.
