Detoxification is about cleansing and nourishing your body and providing it with essential nutrients that the body needs. By removing and eliminating toxins, then feeding your body with healthy nutrients, detoxifying can help protect you from disease and help maintain optimum health.

Certain foods can support, or even speed the process, by providing vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, essential fatty acids, fiber and other needed nutrients. These foods will assist in boosting your metabolism, optimizing digestion, while allowing you to lose weight and fortify your immune system. Here’s a list of some great superfoods with detoxifying properties:


Broccoli is a one of the health food staple that cannot be missed when trying to detox the body. The combination of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and even protein that broccoli contains, helps all of your body’s major functions. Its high vitamin C content alone will help solve your problems of detox.


Almonds are rich in magnesium, a mineral that is needed for detox and often deficient in today’s diets of processed foods. Handful a day of vitamin-packed almonds could help cleanse the deposits out, according to a recent study from the Journal of the National Cancer Institute [i].Almonds are also high in many antioxidants such as vitamin E which again is needed for the detox system.


Cucumbers support the body in a number of ways, all of which really helps while trying to detox. They are known for their hydrating properties and supports your digestive system while at the same time reduces inflammation and provides your body with antioxidant support.

Green Beans

One of the tastier vegetables on our detox foods list, green beans make the cut because of their large amounts of antioxidants. These include both carotenoids and flavonoids, making them an anti-inflammatory that will help ease you through any detox symptoms and help you to feel energized throughout the process.


Lemons are one of the most popular detox foods packed with vitamin C and are thought to help restore the alkaline-acid balance of the body, enabling us to more effectively remove dietary and environmental toxins.
