Detoxification is a great way to remove built-up waste and toxins in the intestines and colon and as well as free radicals and harmful parasites.
In order to maintain its proper function, our body needs this cleanse from time to time.
There are certain foods and drinks which can help you in the process of body cleanse. Just incorporate them one by one in your morning diet routine (or you can even combine them) and you will notice significant improvements.
1. Lemon Water
Even though it is a really simple drink, the benefits that lemon water can provide are simply impressive.
Drinking lemon water should become the first thing you consume in the morning. It can improve your digestion and detoxification as well.
Due to the atomic structure it has, similar to the digestive juices in the stomach, lemon water tricks the liver into producing bile, thus helping food to move through the body and gastrointestinal tract easily.
Lemon water contains enzymes and acids which can stimulate the overall detoxification of your body and skin, and stabilize your insulin levels.
2. Beet Juice
The liver takes part in more than 500 functions within the body, many of which include detoxifying the body. The rich content of antioxidants, vitamins, calcium, and iron make the beets extremely effective for maintaining optimal detoxification.
You can make fresh beet juice or add the juice to your smoothie.
3. Dandelion Root Tea
Dandelions can synthesize and metabolize fat and cholesterol, and break down and store amino acids, all of which are crucial for liver detoxification. Moreover, dandelions can stimulate and maintain the proper flow of bile, thus improving our digestive system.
It is recommended to consume 1 cup of dandelion tea in the morning.
