Foods that Boost Your Natural Cleansing Capabilities
Posted on by
Think of the words ‘detox’ and ‘cleanse’. Don’t they make you feel miserable just by hearing them? Aren’t you already thinking about having to spend a week drinking nothing but green sludge for every meal?
We are here to tell you that you don’t need to take such extreme action. The human body is designed to detox on its own. And all you have to do is add a few foods to your diet to help it along the way.
Cucumber: They are good for more than scaring cats. On average, cucumbers are made of 95% water and a great way to flush out toxins and alkalize the body while delivering a powerful nutrient punch.
Garlic: Whether you are trying to rid the world of vampires or rid yourself of toxins, garlic encourages the production of detoxifying enzymes that stimulate the liver.
Broccoli: For a vegetable that is both delicious and supremely healthy, broccoli has gotten a really bad rep. We blame the parents on Cartoon Network for that. What it does do in real life is deliver a large dose of nutrients and vitamins in each bite.
Lentils: They are extremely rich in fiber and proteins. Lentils also help aid eliminate toxins, balance blood sugar, reduce cholesterol and give you a welcome energy boost.
Walnuts: boost your mood and metabolism while also being a rich source of vitamins.
Citrus Fruits: If cleansing is the game, Vitamin C is the master. It helps breaks toxins in the body into digestible materials that can be easily flushed out.
Kale: You know we love this leafy green superfood for all its health benefits. What you may not know is how much we love to detox with Kale. High Vit C, fiber, and sulfur content make it perfect for keeping your liver healthy and get rid of toxins.
Quinoa: Quinoa is both gluten free and has large quantities of protein, fiber, and various other vitamins and minerals.
