5. Consume Detoxifying Foods
Modern life means that we’re all constantly exposed to toxins, from the food we consume, to the air we breathe, but did you know that by simply adjusting your diet you can boost your body’s toxin shedding process?
The number one detox food has to be chlorella, a freshwater algae and a superfood, which helps to detox heavy metals and boost your uptake of phytonutrients. Turmeric is another potent detox aid, and research has discovered that curcumin, turmeric’s active ingredient, can help to remedy fatty liver disease. There are many foods you can add to your diet to speed up the detoxing process, from milk thistle and artichoke which help to detox the liver, to brazil nuts, which are high in selenium, a key compound that studies have found helps to detoxify the body.
To aid in the toxin removal process, why not try adding some antioxidant boosting blueberries to your daily diet, or swap out caffeinated drinks for green tea, which is packed with natural polyphenols that support detoxification? Many people purchase expensive juice cleanses or supplements when they want to detox, but with these healthy additions to your diet, there’s no need, as you can incorporate some simple, natural foods that do the job just as well, or even better!
