Detox Your Body From the Inside Out

Detoxing is more than taking a hot yoga class and drinking some lemon water. Detoxing involves cleaning out impurities and toxins in your body and bringing it back in balance.

It is important to keep our bodies pure, free from toxins and free radicals. Detoxing our bodies is not something we should only do a few times a year; detoxing should be part of our daily routine. Everyday our bodies are exposed to toxins, and it’s imperative that we continually free ourselves from these damaging particles in our bodies. Our kidneys and liver are two essential organs which are responsible for this daily detoxification process. Our liver and kidneys filter out everything that we consume, so it is essential that we keep our liver and kidneys clean and healthy for optimal detoxification. Keeping our vital organs healthy through daily detoxification will save us from years of disease and illness.

Some insight into the top 4 detoxing foods: artichokes, asparagus, beets, and broccoli. Artichokes help the liver to function at it’s best by increasing the production of bile in the liver. Bile helps to break down food and toxins and assists in eliminating them from the body. Asparagus has a similar job assisting the liver in eliminating food, drinks, and toxins from our body by way of drainage. This vegetable is a powerful diuretic and helps to flush any remaining toxins in our system. Asparagus is also well known for fighting cancer and heart disease by decreasing the inflammation in our body. Broccoli is a key detoxing vegetable as it consists of multiple phytonutrients which aid in detoxification process. Beets, among many others on our list, help to ensure the toxins in our system leave our body completely and do not stay trapped inside.
