With a new year and changes in season, it’s typical to come across countless articles and advertisements about detoxing and cleansing. While there are plenty of decent detoxing programs out there, the good news is that nature provides lots of help in this department on her own. Below are 5 healthy ways to detox. Incorporate these often to jumpstart your body’s automatic and natural cleansing work.
Lemon water. You might be tired or even a little hungover, but your morning coffee is not the answer. When you wake up, don’t immediately reach for coffee. Instead, have warm water with lemon, the lemon kick starts digestion (and your metabolism) and helps flush the liver.
Brassica Veggies Many foods that are considered detoxing support the live meaning they aid in getting garbage transformed and packaged for elimination through your GI tract. Brussel sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, and kale are detox powerhouses. They’re full of fiber and contain enzymes that help metabolize toxins and excess hormones.
Beets One of the most powerful foods to eat when detoxing. They are full of nutrients and are a great source of vitamins B3, B6 and C, plus beta-carotene, magnesium, calcium, zinc, and iron. They assist our liver and gall bladder in breaking down toxins, and their fiber is great for digestion and elimination.
Apples The pectin in apples are great for ushering out detoxed hormones and other junk. They’re also one of the highest water and fiber to sugar ratios of any fruit, making them a great high fiber, lower sugar fruit choice.
Cut out gluten, dairy, and granulated sugar. Yes, this is quite a list. You need to give your body a break from rich holiday foods for a spell. Foods high in gluten, dairy and granulated sugar can create a toxic buildup. Try cutting them from your diet for five to seven days after the holiday to reboot your system.
