We all have our Christmas ritual, and ours is a detox before Christmas. Whether true or not, bulking up on good food and drinking lots of water in the weeks leading up to the party period always holds us in good stead. Here are our top foods that help to create the internal body beautiful, and making sure that living to excess doesn’t make you pay later…
Drink more water. We recently heard that the biggest improvements humans need to make to their lifestyles are to breathe more and drink more water. Drink a glass of water before every meal and every snack and watch your skin take on a well-hydrated glow.
Avocados lower cholesterol and dilate blood vessels. Better yet, they contain a nutrient called glutathione which helps the liver breakdown toxins caused from ingesting synthetic food products.
Beetroots fight infection, purify the blood and detoxify the liver. They also help to stabilise our internal ph balance, keeping dreaded acid at bay.
Garlic rids the body of infection, and lowers blood pressure. It also helps to expel mucous from the respiratory tract, making it ideal for those of us battling chest infections.
Lemons are amazing liver cleansers. They are also high in vitamin C and help to alkalise the body.
