We all know that the best ways to take care of your body is through diet and exercise, but are there any additional steps to maintain your health?
Over time, poor diet, inactivity and stress can lead to clogged organs and thick fluid. That’s why it’s important to detoxify your body at least once a year to reset your system.
Here are the most important systems and organs to detox and how to do it.
The liver detoxifies the blood and gets rid of rid alcohol and drugs. It also stores vitamins and iron and regulates cholesterol, hormone and energy (1, 2).
When the organ is overwhelmed by excess consumption of fatty foods and alcohol or regular prescription use, it cannot perform its tasks. This means that the blood cannot be efficiently filtered.
To clear the liver, avoid high sugar, high fat or high alcohol food and eat more liver-healthy foods like ginger, cumin, cayenne, lemon, tomatoes, garlic, turmeric, green tea and cruciferous vegetables.
You can detox your liver in as little as 3 days with this diet.
