The Best Foods To Eat For Detoxing

TOP DETOXING FOODS TO EAT MORE OF

Our bodies are pretty good at detoxifying. Your liver, and colon, along with other organs and processes, are made to do exactly that! Toxins, on the other hand, are absolutely everywhere in the modern world. We're all searching for a little extra support after the holidays to get our act together (hello wine, cocktails, and sweets), and Dr. Simoné Laubscher, a naturopathic nutritionist, has offered her top picks for the best food buddies to have in our kitchens.

  1. GARLIC

    “Garlic is so wonderful to support detox due to its antibacterial, antiviral, and antibiotic properties. And it contains allicin, which is brilliant for cleansing the liver and boosting white blood cells, thus supporting your immune system, too.”

  2. CURCUMIN

    “The active component in turmeric is a free-radical scavenger and wonderful to reduce inflammation and facilitate detoxification.”

  3. LEMON & GINGER

    “I love this combination, and I recommend all my patients start their day with 500 ml of room-temp or warm water with fresh lemon juice and ginger—it’s the ultimate liver detoxifier. Since we have been fasting overnight, it helps bind to toxins, flushing them out via our urinary system. Both are loaded with antioxidants, which slow down aging and reduce DNA damage.”

  4. HIBISCUS

    “Hibiscus supports detox, particularly the liver, by increasing drug-detoxifying enzymes to reduce your toxic load, and is very nourishing for your blood, too. You can drink hibiscus in tea form, which is delicious and tart.” 

  5. ARTICHOKE

    “Artichokes protect your liver from damage and promote the growth of new liver tissue—a wonderful restorative ability. They also increase the production of bile, which helps remove harmful toxins from your liver and supports digestion.”

  6. MORINGA

    “Moringa is amazing at reducing acidity and inflammation—great detox support at a cellular level. Moringa is also great for hair, skin, and nails, and as a bonus, for male sexual performance.”

  7. SAUERKRAUT

    “In addition to being packed with prebiotics and probiotics to support your digestive and immune systems, sauerkraut also helps detox your liver and remove heavy metals in your system.”

  8. WHEATGRASS

    “The green chlorophyll in wheatgrass is a powerful detox aid supporting the removal of impurities and toxins, including heavy metals. It’s a great friend to reduce inflammation and support our mitochondria to boost energy levels.”
