What are body detoxing drinks?

 

These are teas or drinks that can support your liver function throughout the day, as it does it’s very important job of detoxing your body. And what makes them so easy? They are teas or mixes that are easy to find and add to your drinks throughout the day. Here are the top 3 drinks that support your body in detoxing without losing your mind at the grocery store without trying to buy 25 different ingredients.

 

Number 3: Dandelion Tea - This tea is easily found at most grocery stores and is very inexpensive. Brew it during the morning or afternoon for liver support. In lab tests, dandelion root (which is used in making the tea) was able to reduce the stress on the liver from alcohol. This was accomplished through dandelion root raising the antioxidative properties in the liver which helps to prevent alcohol toxicity [1]. With the ability to raise the antioxidative properties in the liver this tea is a great support throughout the day for your body as it detoxes other pollutants out of your body.

 

 

Number 2: Milk Thistle - This is another tea easily found in stores or online and is super affordable. This plant extract has been used for centuries for treating liver disease and has been heavily researched for its role in preventing damage to the liver. Its ability to block toxins by inhibiting them from binding to cell membranes is a huge help when it comes to keeping toxins out of cells. It has also shown in tests to have the ability to reduce liver injury from chemicals, medications known to do damage to the liver, and alcohol [2]. These everyday toxins become blocked from creating more liver damage than normal, helping to give your liver a break and do what it needs to do: continue detoxing your body. While your liver has the ability to heal, it’s always a good idea to minimize damage from everyday toxins in your life as much as possible.

 

 

Number 1: Super Green Powders - Wheatgrass, barley grass, alfalfa, horseradish tea leaf, chlorella, peppermint... and the list goes on. We know these powerful greens are not only nutrition powerhouses, but they also boost antioxidant power in our body when we consume them.
