The Skinny On Detoxing
Drink more water. Your body is made up of 70% water and needs approximately six to eight glasses a day in order to stay hydrated and to help to flush out the toxins. Add a squeeze of lemon for an extra cleansing boost.
2. GO ORGANIC
Eat organic food to minimise your intake of toxic pesticides. Organic food provides pure nutrients so your liver can cleanse. Organic fruits and vegetables also contains higher amounts of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and sulfur – which also help boost the cleansing effects of the body. They have powerful antioxidants that help drive toxins out of the body.
3. EAT NATURAL
Avoid processed foods, alcohol, and caffeinated drinks while also eating less dairy, meat and sugary foods. Eat foods rich in fiber to help support your body’s natural digestive detoxification. Eat lots of vegetables and whole fruit – especially leafy greens, avocados, berries, apples, pears and plums. Also, cruciferous vegetables are amazing detoxifiers! Cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts and other vegetables from the same family provide a compound called sulforaphane, offering potent antioxidant activity that is anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer, helping to rid the body of harmful toxins and combat their negative effects.
Exercise promotes detoxification via our perspiration. Exercise daily for improved circulation. As you exercise, blood circulates throughout the body bringing fresh oxygen and nutrients to your organs and muscles, while toxins are released through the pores in your skin. Exercise promotes detoxification and boosts your body’s systems.
5. CUT OUT SPECIFIC CAFFEINE/ALCOHOL
Cut down on caffeinated drinks and alcohol as these can all dehydrate the body. Over time these can turn into toxins that the body can’t process and will inhibit your body’s ability to naturally cleanse. By cutting down on these things, it will lead to a healthier lifestyle.
