Your first line of defence against toxins is your liver! Cleansing the liver helps it produce better, more efficient bile, which helps your body flush toxins and break down fat more effectively.
Many fruits and vegetables help to cleanse the liver, but dandelion greens (and other bitter greens like arugula and mustard greens) are particularly effective.
This amazing green helps to increase bile flow so that the liver can be properly detoxed. The incredible mineral and vitamin density of these greens also helps flush out toxins, binding to them and transferring them to the kidneys to be eliminated via urination.
Celery is also a diuretic while increases urine flow to help expel toxins at a faster rate, while ginger helps to eliminate bacteria and viruses and any inflammation that might be harming our precious detox organs.
