Amazing Foods That Detox Your Body and Mind

Cabbage:

Much like Brussels sprouts, cabbage also contains sulfur and stimulates the activation of two crucial liver detoxifying enzymes.

Detox Food Trick! If your days get busy and dinner seems impossible, some low-simmering Crock-pot green cabbage and hamburger soup can seem like a life saver.

 Lemons:

The citrus fruit helps to convert toxins into a water-soluble form that can be easily excreted from the body, literally flushing the unwanted substances from your body.

Detox Food Trick! If you’re not starting off your morning with a cup of hot lemon water, you’re seriously missing out.

 Turmeric:

This ancient spice not only boosts your memory in just one hour, but it can help heal a host of other health ailments. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric is used to treat liver and digestive disorders in Ayurvedic medicine.

Detox Food Trick! Ditch the pumpkin spice latte. That’s so last year. Enter, the turmeric spice latte, which will alert your taste buds and revamp your detox processes.

Olive Oil:

Some liver cleanses out there call for olive oil mixed with fruit juice in order to trigger your liver to expunge its gallstones. But aside from that olive oil should be your go-to oil for use in cooking when you’re trying to detox the body. That’s because it has a lot of healthy properties, and makes for a better choice of fat than most of your other options.

Just be sure not to cook with it at high heat. Use it as a salad dress to help things like dark leafy greens go down.

Flax seeds:

Fiber-powered flax seeds can help keep many diseases at bay and its mix of nutrients helps internal cleansing. Since flax seeds contain both soluble and insoluble fiber, they facilitate smooth bowel movement and prevent the re-absorption of cholesterol from the colon. Sprinkle a few tablespoons into your morning smoothie or salad.

Beets:

Beets are awesome. They are full of nutrients and are a great source of vitamins B3, B6 and C, plus beta-carotene, magnesium, calcium, zinc, and iron. They assist our liver and gall bladder in breaking down toxins, and their fiber is great for digestion and elimination. Shredded raw beets are the best
