My 5 Favourite Detox Foods

After the holidays a lot of people ask me what my favourite detox foods are, so I thought I would share my top 5 list with you.

These are foods that I personally include in my diet in order to facilitate detoxification in my body:

Artichoke

arti

Great for heart health and muscle function. Increases bile production in the liver and has a diuretic effect on the kidneys.

Broccoli

broc

Contains sulphorophanes, indole 3 carbinol and D-glucarate which have a specific effect on detoxification. Sprouts contain 20 times more sulphorophanes than the rest of the plant.

Beetroot

Loaded with vitamins and minerals necessary to promote detox and elimination of toxins. Beetroot also supports galbladder health.

Lemons

lemon

Lemon water is alkalinising and stimulates the release of enzymes converting toxins into water soluble forms.

Garlic

Garlic is a powerful natural anti-biotic and is an important sulphuric compound essential for detoxification.

These foods are an easy way to help your body detoxify. One can of course also follow a detox programme that has been designed for you as individual by a professional. Whichever route you decide to follow, remember that we live in a toxic environment and need to supply our bodies with enough tools to cleanse.
