Pampering isn’t just reserved for your exterior parts. The insides need it too. That’s why a cleanse is great for the organs every once in awhile. Nowadays, the word “cleanse” gets thrown around almost as loosely as “natural” does on food labels. What do you picture when you hear the word, “cleanse”? Probably a misery-filled week of green and maroon juices without any solid foods. But really, a cleanse is just a system of detoxifying and refreshing your organs.
For the most effective way to cleanse your system, you’ll want to add the food list below to your grocery list, try some raw and organic juices, and check out Blessed Herbs’ Internal Cleansing Kit. By the end of the cleanse period, your organs will be refreshed and happy. Just like your wallet will be if you add a Blessed Herbs discount code to your order at checkout!
If you’re ready to try a full cleanse – juice, raw foods, and supplements, the whole shebang, then great! But if you’d like to incorporate more of these foods into your diet just to start, your body will still benefit from the change. Here are six foods for natural detoxing.
Oh, kale. This veggie is like the “Blurred Lines” of the food world. It’s extremely popular at the moment and shows no signs of going stale, despite the bitter taste and rough stems. The difference between the two, is that kale will extend your life with all of its health benefits. Kale has more calcium per calorie than milk, and is a great source of insoluble fiber. Fiber keeps your stomach full, awake, and keeps things moving along.
All hail, Schrute Farms! If memory serves, beets were not nearly as prominent on healthy food lists or gourmet menus before we became enchanted by the lovable beet farmer on "The Office." Beets are cool now, guys. And here’s another reason why - beets contain betalains, which promote cell structure, repair and regeneration, especially in the liver.
With their tear-inducing stench that seems almost impossible to remove from your hands after cutting, onions are a difficult bunch to handle. However, they add so much flavor to dishes, and they contain flavonoids that stimulate the production of antioxidants in the liver. So yeah, I guess they’re worth the tears.
Broccoli and kale are similar in their superfood super powers. Like kale, broccoli reduces the risk of cancer with its powerful antioxidant properties.
A delicious, heart-healthy fat that contains properties which block the absorption of bad fats in the intestines. Seriously, one of the good guys of the fatty food world.
Full of anti-inflammatory nutrients, this veggie does a whole lot more for your bod than making your pee smell.
