Everyone has different foods they turn to for Detoxing purposes. We are always interested in what others have tried and tested. In this post Dr. Craig Golding has listed his top 5 Detox foods.
Everyone has a different perception of the word ‘detox’. Detoxing your body can vary from juicing, or doing colon cleanses to only eating specific foods, or no foods at all. We believe that you can easily detox using nutritious, cleansing foods that your body will thank you for.
‘These are foods that I personally include in my diet in order to facilitate detoxification in my body’ – Dr. Golding
Great for heart health and muscle function. Increases bile production in the liver and has a diuretic effect on the kidneys.
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.
Loaded with vitamins and minerals necessary to promote detox and elimination of toxins. Beetroot also supports galbladder health.
Lemon water is alkalinising and stimulates the release of enzymes converting toxins into water soluble forms.
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.
Your health is in your hands,
