7 Detox Herbs for a Natural Cleanse


.


Spring cleaning isn’t just for your home. As you clean your home to rid it of dust, clutter and toxins this year, consider giving your body the same treatment. If winter is the time to relax and let our bodies rest, then spring is the time for renewal and regeneration—and cleansing our bodies is the perfect place to start.

Adding detox herbs to your diet is a great place to start a healthy natural cleanse. The following detox herbs will strengthen and support the liver, kidneys and other important aspects of your body’s natural detox system.

Detox Herbs

Dandelion: This well-known detox herb helps cleanse the liver by stimulating the production of bile and its flow to the gallbladder, one avenue through which the body naturally removes toxins. Dandelion leaves are also a diuretic. Steep the roots to make dandelion tea, or add the leaves to salads. Learn more about gathering wild dandelions in “A Dandelion Celebration.”

Milk thistle: Silymarin, the active ingredient in milk thistle, prevents liver damage and stimulates this organ’s ability to generate new cells. German physicians frequently prescribe milk thistle as a treatment for those suffering from liver damage. Because silymarin is poorly soluble in water and not absorbed well by the body, a concentrated supplement is recommended. Try a 200 mg capsule representing 140 mg of silymarin.



Turmeric is another well-known beneficial herb for the liver. Turmeric increases the flow of bile, helping to remove toxins from the body. Take a 50 mg supplement daily, or incorporate it more into your cooking.
