Detox Smoothies

If you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy eating leafy greens and herbs, green detox smoothies are the perfect way to sneak them in. Your body is in a constant battle of fighting harmful toxins you take in every day. Processed food, pollutants, herbicides and pesticides, or pharmaceuticals are all sources of toxins. While it’s impossible to avoid toxins altogether, you can help your body eliminate these toxins by incorporating some detoxifying foods in your diet.

The top 5 ingredients for a detox smoothie include:
Apples – apples are full of fiber and nutrients that stimulate bile production to help the liver get rid of some toxins. Apples are also a good source of the soluble fibre pectin, which can help detox metals and food additives from the body. Be sure to eat only organic apples, as conventional apples are some of the most heavily-sprayed foods around.
Ginger – one of the most potent disease-fighting spices, ginger offers antioxidant activities and helps to flush out waste from the body.
Herbs – another green food that is powerful for detoxification are herbs, including parsley, cilantro, basil or mint. These green herbs help to the rid the body of heavy metals by loosening them from the blood, tissues, and organs and assisting with their elimination from the body.
Leafy greens – green vegetables like kale, spinach, or collard greens are rich in chlorophyll, which rids the body of harmful toxins. Leafy greens also increase oxygen content and purify the blood. Whenever you shop for leafy greens, make sure to get organic. Leafy greens are one of the most heavily pesticide-sprayed crops.
Lemon – this little citrus fruit stimulates the release of enzymes and helps convert toxins into a water-soluble form that can be easily excreted from the body. Lemons have also a powerful effect on detoxifying the liver.
