7 foods that will help you to detox naturally

Your 'diet' is really the best medicine, when it comes to cleansing or detoxification of your body, from the harmful toxins. It will be a surprise when you know that some of your favourite daily ingredients or foods also cleanse the body's detoxifying organs like the liver, intestines, kidneys and skin, preventing harmful toxic build-up. Always remember to include fruits, vegetables, nuts, oils & beans in your diet, to ward off the harmful effects of pollutants, food additives, second-hand smoke & other toxins that affect your well-being. Let's find out some of the common foods that detoxify your body naturally.

1) Ginger 

If too much fatty food or alcohol has caused problems for your digestive system, it may be beneficial to add some ginger to your diet. Ginger is not only great for reducing feelings of nausea, but it can help improve digestion, beat bloating and reduce gas. In addition to this, ginger is high in antioxidants and is suitable for boosting the immune system. To give your digestion a helping hand, try sipping on ginger tea or adding some freshly grated ginger to a fruit or vegetable juice.

2) Garlic

Garlic has long been known for its heart benefits; however, this pungent food is also good at detoxifying the body. Garlic is not only antiviral, antibacterial and antibiotic, but it contains a chemical called allicin which promotes the production of white blood cells and helps fight against toxins. Garlic is best eaten raw, so add some crushed garlic to a salad dressing to boost its flavour and your health at the same time.

3) Broccoli

Broccoli contains sulforaphane, which is great for fighting off infectious cells in our bodies. Eating broccoli also helps your body fight off cancer-inducing chemicals and boosts the liver’s ability to clear bad chemicals or toxins from our bodies.

4) Spinach

Spinach is low in calories but packed with nutrients. Spinach contains vitamins A, C, E, and K, as well as thiamine, folate, calcium, iron, and magnesium—the list just goes on! Flavonoids in spinach helps keep cholesterol from oxidizing in your body by acting as an antioxidant.

5) Flaxseeds and Flaxseed Oil 

Loaded with essential fatty acids, particularly the Omega-3s, flaxseeds and flaxseed oil is essential for several cleansing functions throughout the body.

6) Legumes 

Add a handful of cooked beans to your next meal since they are loaded with fibre, which helps lower cholesterol, cleanses the intestines and regulates blood sugar levels. Legumes also help in protecting the body against cancer.

7) Brown rice 

If you want to cleanse your system and boost your health, it is a good idea to cut down on processed foods. Instead, try supplementing your diet with healthier whole grains such as brown rice, which is rich in many key detoxifying nutrients like Vitamin B, magnesium, manganese and phosphorous. Brown rice is also high in fibre, which is good for cleansing the colon, and rich in selenium, which can help protect the liver as well as improve the complexion.
