These days, you’ve probably heard about the the latest fads and diets when it comes to detoxing. Whether it’s a 3-day juice cleanse or The Master Cleanse that includes 10 days of maple syrup, lemon juice, water and cayenne pepper, there are healthier ways to detox the body that don’t consist of these radical and even dangerous tactics. 

At Suddenly Slimmer in La Jolla, we’re all about detoxing the body and getting rid of the harmful and hazardous toxins that may have been building up. One of the easiest ways to do this can be found right at your local grocery store. There are certain foods that will not only nourish your body with the nutrients it needs to stay healthy, but will also help your body with jumpstarting the natural cleansing process.

Give your body a boost with these 8 detoxifying foods.

#1 Avocado

As Californians, we’re known to put avocado on everything. And why not? They’re delicious! It turns out that not only do avocados make for the perfect addition to almost any meal, but they are packed full of antioxidants and detoxifying nutrients that help the liver block out harmful synthetic chemicals.

#2 Lemons

Lemons are widely known as one of the more popular detoxifying foods and there are even some detox diets based solely around this fruit. By simply adding lemon juice to your water, the lemon will release certain enzymes that help convert toxins into a form that can be easily excreted from your body.

#3 Garlic

This flavorful ingredient is used in almost every cuisine in the world. By adding garlic to the next meal you make, your immune system will be boosted by this ingredient and the high amount of sulfur acts as one of the main components for detoxifying the body.

#4 Artichokes

Did you know that an artichoke is technically a flower that has not yet bloomed? Who knew? Well, it turns out that this unbloomed flower is packed full of benefits that will do your body a number of favors. Artichokes aide the liver with functioning properly which helps the body get rid of harmful toxins.

#5 Almonds

Almonds are among the world’s healthiest foods and it’s so easy to add this nutritious nut to your daily food intake. Almonds are extremely rich in Vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and potassium and have been known to block the body’s absorption of calories.

#6 Ginger

Consuming this root will kickstart your metabolism and flush out the waste in your body. Whether it’s adding it into the meal you’re preparing, letting it soak in a glass of warm water before drinking it, or chewing on a piece of ginger root, there are a number of ways to incorporate this ingredient into your diet. 

#7 Salmon

This delicious superfood is packed full of good fats that will help to reduce any inflammation and will boost your immune system. Not only that, but the high Omega 3 content in salmon is the main component that will keep your body energized and healthy.

#8 Beets

There are so many different benefits your body gets from beets, but it’s pretty rare to see this ingredient incorporated into meals. This root vegetable aids in detoxifying the body by making sure the harmful toxins are actually making it completely out of your body.
