Detoxing; the top 5 power foods

Ginger

This root vegetable has been recognised for its medicinal value since ancient times. It is thought to be not only anti-inflammatory but also possess strong anti-ulcer and antioxidant properties.

Ginger is also great for when you want to cleanse your body of toxins; this is thanks to its ability to stimulate the circulation and digestion within the body and also sweating for an external release.

Blueberries

Not only are blueberries rather tasty they are also full of antioxidants, which means they are great for cleansing the system. It is thought that blueberries may even help to slow down liver disease with minimal side effects to your body.

Avocado

Avocado is huge at the moment and we are not talking about the size of the vegetable. As a food avocados are absolutely packed full with antioxidants and fabulous fats which help us to feel at our best.

They are also low in cholesterol and free radicals making them ideal for clean eating as well as low fat diets and best of all they contain protein which helps us to feel fuller for longer.

Sea Vegetables

They might not sound like the most tempting dish for some, but sea vegetables offer some pretty impressive benefits. Not only do they strengthen those all important digestive organs but they also can actually absorb toxins that have built up in the digestive tract.

If that wasn’t enough to tempt you into trying them then perhaps the fact that they contain one of the biggest variety of minerals of any food! Sound a little more appetising now?

Turmeric

Tumeric seems to be one of those spices that everyone has in their cupboard. What people may not realise is that turmeric contains plenty of anti-oxidants and even is know to improve the livers function. It increases the levels of the enzymes that your body needs to remove those harmful chemicals and give everything a big clean out!

Don’t forget Matcha

Alongside these fantastic detox foods, Matcha can help cleanse your body and ensure that you are feeling fabulous. Mix it with a smoothie, pop it in a cake or simply enjoy a cup of Matcha at home; whatever you choose to do with it you are sure to reap the benefits.
