Whether or not people can help the body detoxify itself is a matter that can be quite controversial. While there is no doubt that certain foods may accelerate elimination, a true “detox” is something that numerous products claim to accomplish. The fact that there is always a generous supply of charlatans on hand to exploit just about every market probably does not do much for the issue of detoxing. While people may argue about whether a particular food or drink can assist the body with detox, millions of people will go ahead and follow recommendations from various product manufacturers and practitioners. It seems as if true detox may be something that may have to be tried and judged on an individual basis. The following foods are healthy options that you can eat when ‘detoxing’.
Many fruits are very high in fiber and contain numerous beneficial vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Since the fiber content will usually help accelerate the elimination process, it seems reasonable to presume that eating fruit could contribute to the body’s natural detoxification process.
