From the air we breathe to the food we eat, water we drink,
and products we put on our bodies and in our homes, each exposes us to an overload of environmental toxins.
Reducing Your Toxin Load Top 2 Ways:
Educate yourself as to what things cause this exposure and do your best to avoid it.
Eat foods that strengthen your body’s detoxification pathways as well as boost your immune system.
Which Foods Should You Eat? ď ľ
Following 5 foods can help support liver detoxification by
altering levels of liver enzymes involved in deactivating and clearing toxic compounds from your body.
1. Greens ď ľ
Chlorophyll may actually be able to bind cancer-
causing chemicals, allowing chemicals to be excreted by the body instead of being absorbed.
Try: Barley or Wheatgrass, Chard or Kale, Lambs Quarters or Dandelion
2. Cruciferous Vegetables ď ľ
These powerhouse vegetables not only help
promote liver detoxification, but they also contain indole-3-carbinol, a compound that helps balance estrogen levels.
Try: Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, and Cabbage
3. Turmeric ď ľ
This delicious spice contains a phytochemical called curcumin,
which decreases inflammation and promotes liver detoxification.
Tip: Sprinkle on any meal, in any smoothie or juice.
The colorful pigments in beets may help support liver detoxification and also serve as potent antioxidants in addition
to being nutrient-rich.
5. Garlic ď ľ
In addition to garlicâ€™s detoxifying properties, studies suggest
that populations with higher garlic intake have decreased risk for stomach and colorectal cancers.
