August 27, 2010

*Something to keep in mind… the liver is the body’s major organ of detoxification.*

1. Dandelion greens

They are high in Vitamin B complex, vitamin C and several minerals. The chlorophyll in dandelion greens acts as a powerful blood purifier.

2. Ginger

Ginger helps to increase circulation as well as helping toxins be excreted via the skin, bowels and kidneys. Ginger also works to combat inflammation.

3. Apples

Purify the bloodstream and increase lymphatic action. Apples increase colon function and help to promote the excretion of toxic waste. (high in vitamin C)

4. Lemons

Aids digestion by increasing saliva flow and stimulating liver function. Lemons alkalize the blood and have laxative and diuretic properties.

5. Grapes

stimulates liver and promotes bowel and kidney function. Grapes speed up the metabolic function and have a cleansing effect on all tissues and glands. * Purple grapes are high in resveratrol– a powerful disease-fighting antioxidant.

6. Artichokes

Artichokes stimulate the liver. By increasing bile production, they help to metabolize fats.

7. Beets

beets help to purify the blood, cleanse the liver and stimulate lymphatic activity. They also help to flush out uric acid from the body.

8. Parsley

Powerful cleansing effect on the blood-stream.  Parsley stimulates the bowels and supports the lungs, liver, kidneys and spleen. Like dandelion greens, parsley is a great source of vitamin A, C and detoxifying chlorophyll.

9. Grapefruit

Grapefruit has a cooling and purifying effect on the body. Frequent consumptions of grapefruit before meals promotes weight loss.

10. Yogurt

Helps to detoxify the intestinal tract by promoting beneficial bacteria in the stomach, ensuring proper assimilation of foods and nutrient synthesis.

11. Donuts
