According to Ayurveda Expert, Dr. Ashutosh Gautam, "In order to lose weight effectively, one should have a good digestive system." In the absence of disease, a well-rounded diet and adequate water intake are usually enough to keep your kidneys healthy. Here are 10 foods you can add to your diet to cleanse your liver. Prebiotics are types of fibre that cannot be digested and help to cultivate a healthy microbiome by helping gut bacteria to flourish. Gut bacteria break these fibres down by fermentation to produce short chain fatty acids that supply energy to the cells that line your colon.
Acupuncture is often used in drug detox programs for its powerful effects in removing toxins from the body. Green apples are super high in pectin which binds to toxins, such as heavy metals and drug residue, to gently and naturally eliminate these unwanted pollutants from the body. So try and add a Granny Smith to your daily green juice or smoothie. Did you know that drinking 3-4 litres of filtered spring water each day is essential for the body’s detox processes to work at the optimum level? Avoid tap water wherever possible, and consider using a copper vessel to boost the benefits of staying hydrated.
A regular intake of these simple detox drinks can aid weight loss, give a boost to your metabolism, work as an incredible laxative agent and helps digestion. Detox drinks also aid smoother liver functioning, better sleep and improved hair and skin.
