What Foods To Help After a Juice Detox
10 Foods that help to detox the body.
Our recent research into our juice detox packages brought us to Dr. Edward Group – he has helped to list the following 10 food items as aiding the body to cleanse & detox, just what you need just after the festive season.
Fruit’s are packed with antioxidants, minerals and are a great source of hydration which helps the body to cleanse toxins.
Plants are packed with Chlorophyll which can help to cleanse the body of harmful toxins. Great sources of Chlorophyll are Kale, Wheatgrass, Spirulina and most leafy greens. It's for this reason we believe they're one of the most important ingredients in our juice detox!
3. Citrus Fruits
Citrus Fruits like Lemons, Oranges and limes can help to boost the digestive system.
Remember, vitamin C is one of the best detox vitamins around, as it transforms toxins into digestible material. Eat vitamin c foods often to help get more of these benefits.
This pungent little bulb is one of the best detoxing foods out there. It helps stimulate the liver into producing detoxification enzymes that help filter toxic residues from the digestive system. I recommend adding sliced or cooked garlic to a suitable dish, as this will help any detox diet.
5. Broccoli Sprouts
Extremely high in antioxidants, the ability for broccoli sprouts to stimulate the detoxification enzymes in the digestive tract is unparalleled. The sprouts are actually more effective than the fully-grown vegetable.
6. Green Tea
Packed full of antioxidants, green teawashes toxins from the system via its liquid content, but also contains a special type of antioxidant called catechins, which are known to increase liver function.
7. Mung Beans
The mighty mung bean has been used by Ayurvedic doctors for thousands of years. It is incredibly easy to digest, and absorbs toxic residue from the intestinal walls.
8. Raw Vegetables
Best juiced or eaten raw: Onions, carrots, artichokes, asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, kale, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, garlic, beet, turmeric, and oregano. The combination of these foods will help your liver purge toxins during the cleansing process. These are high in naturally occurring sulphur and glutathione. Sulphur helps the liver detoxify harmful chemicals.
9. Seeds and Nuts
Incorporate more of the easily digestible seeds andnuts into your diet. Flax seed, pumpkin seeds, almonds, walnuts, hemp seeds, sesame seeds, chia seeds, Siberian cedar nuts, and sunflower seeds are all excellent options. While detoxing, avoid nut butters.
10. Omega-3 Oils
Use hemp, avocado, olive, or flax seed oil while detoxing. This will help lubricate the intestinal walls, allowing the toxins to be absorbed by the oil, and eliminated by the body.
Performing a periodic body cleanse may also be beneficial. I also recommend following my Body Cleanse Diet. Do you have any suggestions for foods that detox the body? If so, please drop them in the comment section below. I’d love to hear your thoughts
