The Best 5 Foods to Detoxify the Body

The gut is also referred to as our “second brain”, which is why we get what is called a “gut feeling”. In addition, everything that goes through our gut has an effect on our general wellbeing, whether good or bad.

In the busy age we live in, it’s so easy to unknowingly damage our digestive systems with all the processed foods that promote themselves as healthy. Thankfully, there has been an increase in awareness over the years and real healthy eating is on the rise.

While some people opt for full-on detox diets (which you can read about here), there are also some individual foods which can help to cleanse the gut and act as a detox.

Avocados

This fruit is rich in fiber and antioxidants, proving to be one of the most detoxifying foods of all. Originally, avocados were “rejected” because they are relatively high in fat, but ever since the difference between good and bad fats has become more commonly known, they have slowly gained popularity. To fully benefit from the cleansing properties of this food, opt for organic avocados and consume them with as little added ingredients as possible – a bit of guacamole to dip your food in won’t do the trick.

Turmeric

This herb can be used in a versatile way, most famously in curries and teas. Research shows that turmeric has an anti-inflammatory effect, and including it in your diet could significantly reduce bile duct blockage and curbed scarring (fibrosis). Include it in your diet by adding it to rice, vegetables, omelets, soups, and even smoothies.

Asparagus

Not only is this yummy vegetable high on the detoxifying list, but it also has anti-inflammatory qualities and helps to prevent cancer, keep your heart healthy, and delay the signs of aging. The amino acids and minerals found in asparagus can protect liver cells from toxins and help to flush them out of your system, and can even alleviate hangover symptoms.

Beets

Beets should be included in your meals more regularly for a number of reasons, including that they help to fully rid your body of toxins. They also help with free-radicals, making them an anti-cancer aid, and help to regenerate cells in the liver to give it an extra boost.

Lemon Water

It might not be a food, but drinking water with lemon every day, particularly first thing in the morning, is highly recommended for everyone and not just those trying to detox. It helps to alkalize the body and improves digestion by flushing out toxins and boosting sluggish bowels.

Including all of these things into your diet will help to boost your digestive system and thus improve your overall health and wellbeing. In general, try your best to avoid anything processed – you’d be surprised how many hidden ingredients can be found in everything you eat.
