5 Fruits That Can Help Detoxify Your Body
Detoxification is about resting, cleansing and nourishing the body from the inside out. A detox doesn’t need to be about eating soup five times a day, kale juice for breakfast or starving yourself for two days and purging for five. Detoxing is simply removing the toxins from the body to free up the body for optimal immune functioning, fat loss and improved quality of life as a whole. If you don’t want to commit to a whole diet focused on detox, we’ve found the five fruits with the best detoxing benefits.
Rich in Vitamin C, lemons posses amazing health benefits ranging from its active antibacterial and antiviral properties to its immune boosting abilities. The most popular way to consume lemon is using it to flavour foods or by juicing it and drinking it with warm water. Lemon water not only helps with weight loss but also increases the body’s metabolic rate. Try drinking a glass in the morning before breakfast for optimal results.
Everyone’s heard the old saying, ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’. In actual fact this saying holds a lot of merit. The pectin and malic acid in apples provide effective detoxification for the liver. The soluble fibre in pectin works to remove cholesterol and toxins from the blood by soaking them up and moving them through the intestines, while malic acid cleanses carcinogens.
All berries are rich in Vitamin C and fibre, containing their own detox properties. However, blueberries in particular are very high in antioxidants and have antiviral properties, which can help to prevent infection. Blueberries can also combat inflammation in the body.
Rich in bromelain, pineapples help break down proteins and assists with their digestion. Anyone who’s had a protein bar or large serve of protein dense food can attest to the bloat that accompanies it. Pineapples are rich in vitamin c and can help to reduce inflammation and boost immunity. Fresh pineapple is the way to go as the canned alternative often has had bromelian removed.
Kiwi fruit contains a protein-dissolving enzyme called actindin, which helps you to properly digest meals and improve your digestive system overall. It is also a fantastic source of fibre, which will work to improve your bowel movements, and help to remove toxins from your intestinal tract.
