7 Foods You Should Consume Regularly To Cleanse Your Body And Remove Toxins Naturally

When it comes to cleansing your body of harmful toxins, food really is the best medicine. You’ll be amazed to learn that many of your favorite foods also cleanse the body’s detoxification organs like the liver, intestines, kidneys and skin, preventing harmful toxic buildup. Help ward off the harmful effects of pollution, food additives, second-hand smoke and other toxins with delicious fruits, vegetables, nuts, oils and beans.

Not only can these foods help your body remove toxins, but they also provide nutrients that you need to lead a happy and healthy life. Check out these nine foods that you can add to your plate to help you feel better

1. Spinach

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

2. Soy

Good news for edamame lovers: Soy is rich in vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant in detox reactions in your body. Plus, it contains isoflavones that convert free radicals into water-soluble compounds (also through detox reactions) so they can be easily excreted. We suggest purchasing only organic soy foods to avoid genetic modification and pesticides.

3. Green tea

Green tea as well as matcha tea are known to promote detoxification. Green tea contains antioxidants and boosts the performance of the liver. Matcha is high in a catechin which can help fight cancer. It also prevents heart disease, type 2 diabetes and aids in weight loss.

4. Avocados.

We rarely think of avocados as a cleansing food but these nutritional powerhouses lower cholesterol and dilate blood vessels while blocking artery-destroying toxicity. Avocados contain a nutrient called glutathione, which blocks at least thirty different carcinogens while helping the liver detoxify synthetic chemicals.

5. Ginger

If too much fatty food or alcohol has caused problems for your digestive system, it may be worthwhile 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 good 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.

6. Beetroot

For those needing a quick health-boosting shot of nutrients, you can’t do much better than beetroot. Packed with magnesium, iron, and vitamin C, the vegetable has recently been hailed as a superfood due to its many reported health benefits. Not only is beetroot great for skin, hair and cholesterol levels, but it can also help support liver detoxification, making it an ultimate detox food. To enjoy its benefits, try adding raw beetroot to salads or sipping on some beetroot juice.

7. Grapefruit

Add a ruby red grapefruit to your breakfast to benefit from pectin fiber that binds to cholesterol, thereby cleansing the blood. Pectin also binds to heavy metals and helps escort them out of the body. It also has antiviral compounds that cleanse harmful viruses out of the body. Grapefruit is an excellent intestinal and liver detoxifier.
