Top 10 Detoxifying Foods

My last post was quite educational.

Your diet and your fitness are extremely important for overall health. Find below the top 10 detoxifying foods.

Beets

Beets are full of vitamins B3, B6, C and beta-carotene. They’re also a valuable source of iron, magnesium, zinc and calcium – all necessary to promote optimal detoxification and elimination. Beets also support good gallbladder and liver health – organs that are paramount for breaking down and removing toxins. The high amount of fiber in beets improves digestion and helps eliminate bodily waste.

Sea Vegetables

Often known as seaweeds, these amazing foods house powerful antioxidants that help to alkalize the blood and strengthen the digestive tract. The algin in seaweed absorbs the toxins from the digestive tract in much the same way a water softener removes the hardness from tap water. Sea vegetables offer the broadest range of minerals of any food, containing virtually all the minerals found in the ocean. The same minerals that are found in human blood.

Dandelions

These are considered a powerhouse food full of nutrients that are essential for anyone regularly eating the Standard American Diet. They’re a rich source of antioxidants that support cleansing of the digestive tract and offer great liver support. Try adding dandelion leaves to your salad.

Broccoli Sprouts

Broccloli is part of the powerhouse brassica family of vegetables. Broccoli contains important phytochemicals that are released when they’re chopped, chewed, fermented, cooked or digested. The substances are released then break down into specific things, which all have a specific effect on detoxification. Broccoli sprouts can actually provide more benefits than regular broccoli as they contain 20 times more sulfurophane.

Flax seed

Flax-seeds serve many purposes. When detoxifying your body, it’s essential to ensure toxins are eliminated properly. Ground flax seeds provide a wonderful source of fiber that helps to bind and flush toxins from the intestinal tract. They’re also a great source of health promoting omega 3 oils. Try consuming two tablespoons of found flax seeds in lemon water every morning.
