Four Shakes to Eliminate Toxins
Your body is constantly changing and struggling to eliminate toxins and maintain a good state of health. But what are you doing to help? Do you eat healthy and try to avoid toxins, or is it something you don’t place much importance on?
Although our internal organs perform cleaning processes, they cannot always be kept free of toxins, because we have adopted such damaging habits that most of the time the task of eliminating toxins is a complicated one.
Fortunately, there is hope. There are herbs that can help you maintain your health. The detoxifying herbs that we will mention provide nutrients as they clean your body.
Ready? Take notes, and take these smoothies to remove toxins consistently. You’ll be sure to get great results.
1. Basil shake for removing toxins from the kidneys
Basil is a great aide for eliminating toxins that have accumulated in the kidneys. These small organs play a crucial role in the cleansing of the blood, and are easily damaged by processed foods.
When you eat basil, it will ensure that your kidneys function correctly for a long time. If you are already having problems like infections or kidney stones, don’t wait any longer.
Also, try to stop eating processed foods and salt for a time.
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 1/2 peeled mango cut in cubes
- 1/2 cup of basil leaves
- half of a banana
- 2 ice cubes
- Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend them
- Make sure you drink it immediately to avoid oxidation of the nutrients
Because of the fruit it contains, we recommend you drink it before exercising, or in the morning. Its high calorie content makes it an excellent energy source.
2. Cilantro shake for cleansing heavy metals
Cilantro is an herb widely used in cooking for its incredible flavor. Here you’ll find that it makes good contributions to your health that you should not overlook.
The reason why cilantro is excellent for eliminating toxins is that it favors the removal of heavy metals in a natural way. Consuming these metals through water and some foods is much more common than you think.
Even if you don’t like it, you should know that it is virtually impossible not to ingest a small dose of these metals on occasion. So, including foods in your diet that eliminate them is the best way to prevent future problems.
Because of cilantro’s taste, it’s best to combine it with citrus fruits. Try this shake, we’re sure you’ll love it.
- 1 cup of fresh spinach
- 1/2 cup of fresh washed cilantro
- 1 cup of water
- the juice of one lemon
- 1 cm of fresh ginger
- Blend all ingredients and drink immediately
This milkshake is great if you want something easy to prepare, and that tastes good. If you end up not liking the taste, you can add the juice from one grapefruit to add more citrus flavor.
3. Mint shake for colon health
Eliminating toxins will not only improve kidney health, but your colon will also benefit. When toxins affect the colon, you’ll have digestive problems.
Mint leaves have two functions:
- Eliminate toxins that have accumulated in the colon
- Improve the digestive process to hinder toxins from accumulating
If that’s not enough, your sin will also be cleansed from toxins thanks to mint. Therefore, it is not unusual to find facial cleansers that use it as a base ingredient. This time we propose taking advantage of mint’s benefits to internal organs.
- 6 disinfected frozen strawberries
- 1 cup of plain greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup of coconut milk
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 10 disinfected mint leaves
- Put all the ingredients in a blender
- Blend until all the ingredients are mixed well and have a creamy consistency
- Drink immediately
This shake is deliciously creamy, so it will become one of your favorites if you like sweet things. You can drink this milkshake as a snack between breakfast and lunch when you lack energy.
