10 Foods That Detoxify Your Mind & Body, Plus Things To Avoid

Posted on Updated on

  1. Almonds – Consuming a hand fill of almonds daily, will load your body with essential nutrients like fiber, calcium and magnesium. These nutrients help to stabilize the blood sugar in the body and thus help to eliminate various impurities.
  2. Apples – This fruit is filling, satisfying and it can help suppress unhealthy cravings. When sugar cravings creep up when detoxing, grab an apple. Green apples are especially good for decreasing appetite.
  3. Asparagus – This vegetable detoxifies the liver and flushs out all impurities. Eating it raw will help reduce bloating in your belly too!
  4. Avocado –  Avocados contain a nutrient called gluthione, which helps to block various carcinogenic from the liver. Also, helps to lower cholesterol level in the body and dilates blood vessels while blocking artery-destroying toxins in the body.
  5. Broccoli – A  good source of folate, broccoli also contains phytonutrients. Broccoli is also an excellent source of vitamin C — an antioxidant that protects your body’s cells from damage. It is also an excellent source of vitamin A and is linked to preserving eye health.
  6. Celery – A good source of fiber, that helps move food through your digestive tract.
  7. Grapefruit – The fiber and the nutrient-rich juices in a grapefruit really get your body into action as far as detoxing goes. It’s all about flooding the body with good things for it while helping it dislodge the bad things.
  8. Green Tea – Green tea is packed with antioxidants which help to wash off most of toxins in the body in liquid form. The presence of catechins – antioxidant also helps to improve liver functioning. Its high antioxidant value helps seek out and kill free radicals before they can do any damage.
  9. Kale – Kale is a nutrient-packed leafy green packed full of vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin K, as well as iron.
  10. Watermelon – Helps your liver and kidneys flush out impurities.

Things To Avoid When Detoxing

Alcohol – Try to eliminate or at least drastically cut back during any detox program. Alcohol is very toxic to the liver, and will undo all of your hard detox work. It can cause a fatty liver, or it can contribute to one. When your liver is taxed your whole body suffers.

Caffeinated Beverages – I know this one is hard, but beverages with caffeine have a dehydrating effect on the body, and make the liver work overtime to process the caffeine. You have to drink plenty more water to counteract the dehydrating effects they cause, so it’s easier to just avoid them while you’re trying to detox.

Sugary Sweets – Sugar will cause excess stress to your liver, and will ruin your cleansing efforts. Try to cut out these foods you’re craving. You’ll notice the craving for these kind of foods less and less as you release toxins from your body, but you have to give them up in order for this to happen.

    Remember the grapefruit and egg diet? Maybe there was something to it, other than fad eating at its worst. Think I’ll go and have an almond 🙂
