Moreover, we will reveal three of the most effective detox remedies:
Epsom Salt Bath
Epsom salt baths are extremely effective in detoxifying the body, as it raises the levels of magnesium, which is especially needed for detoxifying cells. Moreover, it also eliminates the metals and can alleviate the pain in the body.
What you need to do is to add one to two cups of Epsom salt in a bathtub filled with warm water and soak in it for around 15 minutes. Repeat this detox method three times a week. Yet, you need to note that this treatment is not recommended in the case of heart problems and high blood pressure.
2. Green Tea
Green tea is abundant in antioxidants, so it is extremely effective in eliminating free radicals. Moreover, it has epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which is a powerful antioxidant that prevents toxic damage to the liver.
All you need to do is to consume two to three cups of green tea every day, and you can also take green tea extracts (100 to 750 mg per day).
Lemon juice is one of the most potent alkalizer and detoxifiers. Furthermore, it triggers the liver’s bile production and stimulates mineral intake as well as absorption.
Lemons are rich in antioxidants and vitamin C which boosts the immune system. These fruits, and particularly the peels, are rich in an antioxidant called d-limonene, which successfully activates enzymes in the liver that help eliminate toxic compounds.
Therefore, regularly consume a cup of warm water mixed with the juice squeezed from one lemon as soon as you wake up.
Also, you can drink a cup of warm water mixed with one-half cup of lemon juice, one tablespoon of honey, and one teaspoon of cayenne pepper every day for a period of few weeks.
