Thank you all for continuing to read the Tip of the Day. Since Spring is finally here, now is the time to cleanse your body and make sure you are in tip top health. I listed out four foods that are great to help you detox your body naturally. I hope everyone enjoys their first weekend of Spring.
Four Super Foods for Detoxifying
Dark leafy greens
Dark leafy greens such as Kale, Swiss chard, Collard greens and Dandelion are among the healthiest food on Earth. They contain powerful anti-cancer and antioxidant compounds that help cleanse the body of harmful substances. Dark leafy greens also contain a lot of fiber, which helps to detox the digestive tract and supports liver function. They also help to build strong bones and to alkalize the body.
Lemon is one of the best foods for a liver detox diet. It contains more than 30 detoxification assisting nutrients including limonene and vitamin C. Lemons can help to lower cancer risks, fight against pollution exposure and prevent cell damage. Lemons also help the body to achieve a balanced pH level.
Garlic has important antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. It also helps the cardiovascular system and help to lower blood pressure. Garlic contains powerful antioxidants that support the body's natural detox process.
Grapefruit is rich in lycopene, glutathione, folate and naringenin. Glutathione supports natural liver detoxification. Naringenin, also protects the liver against damage. Grapefruit significantly increases the production of liver detoxification enzymes, helping to detox from chemicals and carcinogens.
