Tips for a successful detox

Nowadays, our body and our immune defenses are increasingly attacked by our environment, on a daily and growing basis. Since Antiquity, many plants have been used in the form of beverages to purify and cleanse the body and mind. But, did you know that certain juices can truly detoxify the body?

What are detox foods?

Detox foods

Anti-detox foods are foods that allow our body to naturally detoxify, that is to say, they act to suppress the oxidation of our cells. They can be of plant, animal, or even mineral origin. Their action on metabolism (depending on the nutrients, vitamins, and free radicals they contain) allows the elimination of accumulated toxins and the elimination of waste. Here are the main ones:

* Birch juice: It has natural depurative and diuretic properties which purify the blood and promote the overall recovery of the body.

* Lemon juice: It has natural properties as a kidney stimulant, toxin eliminator, antioxidant, and preventative of cardiovascular diseases and cancer (thanks to its concentration of flavonoids).

* Cabbage: It has slimming and antioxidant properties.

* Spinach: It has a rich concentration of nutrients and a high potassium content, which provides diuretic and alkalizing properties.

* Asparagus: It has diuretic properties, and helps to drain the liver and eliminate toxins, as well as anti-stress properties thanks to a high concentration of folate.

* Leek: It has diuretic, detoxifying and anti-cancer properties (thanks to its concentration of potassium and kaempferol, and its low sodium level).

* Black radish: It has a high concentration of sulfur, magnesium, potassium and calcium, which helps regenerate the liver and drain the gallbladder as well as the kidneys.

* Carrot: It has a high concentration of glutathione as well as beta-carotene, which helps both cleanse the liver and promote the functioning of the immune system .

* Pineapple: It has fat burning and detoxifying properties, thanks to the many different enzymes it contains.

* Pomegranate: It has many antioxidants and improves blood and lymphatic circulation.

The best juice detox recipes

Among the foods mentioned above, many juices allow you to undertake short or more prolonged cures, based solely on vegetables, fruits, roots or even spices. In addition to these juices, it is very important not to have any particular deficiencies, to have a balanced diet, not to have serious pathologies, and not to have simultaneous heavy drug treatment. Here are examples of juices, smoothies, and soups, the most effective, and the simplest and most inexpensive to make. All ingredients should be used (unless contraindicated) fresh and prepared immediately. Don't forget to wash vegetables and fruits, especially herbs, well. They must all be prepared in a blender, or in a mixer, and using a centrifuge or a juice extractor in certain cases. Vegetables and fruits (unless contraindicated) must all be peeled and plants must be chopped. All recipes are to be enjoyed fresh and cold.
