Looking for a cleansing solution to lessen your internal toxin levels? Incorporate these 5 foods in your diet to support the liver in the detoxing process.

We are inundated on a daily basis with toxins we cannot avoid. The world we live in is toxic, the air we breathe is full of pollution, our water is not 100% clean.

Fortunately, there are many things we can avoid and control when it comes to what enters our bodies. Choosing to fuel ourselves with foods that naturally fight toxins is an essential step in decreasing our toxic load.

5 Most Powerful Detoxing Foods

Here are five foods that naturally detox the body:

1. Garlic

Packed with sulfur – a mineral that supports the body in detoxification. Garlic is also extremely valuable to the body as it contains antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial properties that keep your immune system resilient.

Best news yet – it is delicious and a great addition to almost any meal. So, eat up!

2. Turmeric

You may know this beneficial herb as the main spice in curry. Great for inflammation, free-radical fighting antioxidants, and detoxing the liver.

You can use turmeric to season your veggies, add into your soups, take it as a supplement or make a homemade turmeric tea.

Homemade Turmeric Tea Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 tsp of ground turmeric
  • Honey to taste (optional)
  • Cinnamon to taste (optional)
  • ½ tsp of ginger (optional)

Directions

  1. Blend all ingredients together in a blender.
  2. Pour into a small pan and heat on the stove until the desired temperature is reached. Enjoy!

3. Leafy Greens

It is no surprise that I am telling you how advantageous it is to eat your greens, right? Loaded with vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, getting greens into your diet will leave you with lasting results.

Greens are also filled with fiber which helps you to feel satisfied longer. You can be sure to get your greens in salads, green smoothies, juicing, and cooking your greens into your meals.

4. Dandelion Root

You may not have been expecting that one! Yes, dandelion root has incredible health benefits – especially beneficial for your digestive system and your liver.

A favorite way to add this into your diet is by drinking dandelion root tea, which you can pick up at your health food store.

5. Beets

Beets are fantastic for detoxing the liver, among the tremendous amount of antioxidants, calcium and vitamins they possess.

I love the earthy-ness that beets bring to a salad or smoothie (and pickled beets are a childhood favorite!).
