Top 5 Foods to Detoxify Your Body



Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to bring balance back to the body in the simplest way...through food. Maybe you aren’t quite ready to start on a strict diet just yet. However, you can prepare your body for healthier eating by incorporating some of these top five foods for detoxing.

  1. Water: Yes, one of the most overlooked and underused resources we have. Drinking at least half your weight in ounces of water can help the body flush out the nasty toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis and help keep things flowing in the digestive tract for easier elimination. If you find it difficult to keep up with water intake, there are many simple water trackers for mobile devices with reminders that will alert you when to take a drink.

  2. Collard Greens: Collard greens are not only great for salads, but have benefits such as helping lower cholesterol and help bile flow, therefore, facilitating the work of the liver and gallbladder.

  3. Lemons: Lemons are a popular additive to water due to its ability to cleanse the body, balance acidity, and boost immunity. Simply adding a few slices to water can be a great way to incorporate to your diet.

  4. Seaweed: Seaweed is loaded with antioxidants but has one key nutrient necessary for thyroid health...iodine. The thyroid controls many of the body’s functions and when not in balance, the body becomes sluggish in many aspects, such as slowing down metabolism, which affects digestion and hindering elimination of toxins from the body.

  5. Lemongrass: Its ability to cleanse the kidneys, bladder, and digestive tract have made it a favorite herb to add in some dishes or even just as tea. It has also been labeled as a popular antibiotic by helping prevent the growth of some bacteria.
