Top 5 detoxifying foods
We've chosen 5 foods that you can easily add to your normal diet to nourish your body and help get rid of unwanted toxins.
Ginger is so warming to your body and because of its anti-inflammatory properties is great for relieving aches & pains. It is deeply comforting & healing to the digestive system.
Turmeric comes from the ginger family and so also has anti-inflammatory properties. It helps to purify the blood and is a great liver tonic.
Beetroot is a great stimulant for the liver, kidneys and lymphatic system. It has been known to improve blood flow and lower cholesterol.
Cucumber is made up mostly of water so it helps to keep the body hydrated and flushes toxins out. It's also great for healthy skin, hair and nails.
Lemon is full of anti-oxidants and vitamin C, it plays a powerful role in alkalising the body and decongesting the system.
Most of these wonderful detoxifying ingredients can be easily added to smoothies, juices and soups. I have a cup of green tea with fresh lemon every morning :)
I'd love to know how you incorporate these ingredients into your diet.
