Best 15 Herbs And Foods To Cleanse Your Blood

how to cleanse your blood with these foods and herbs

During the day a wide range of toxins and chemicals end up in our blood stream. These are waste products formed by our own body or chemicals absorbed through the food we eat, the air we breathe in, medication we take, or cosmetics and household products we use.

Your body has its own detoxification system. It is constantly filtering blood to eliminate harmful compounds to maintain health. The kidneys, liver, intestines, lungs, and skin are our main filtration systems. By eating the right kind of food you can aid your internal organs to filter more toxins out of your blood stream and avoid build-up and disease.

So cleansing your blood comes down to aiding your liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs, and skin to eliminate more toxins and avoid build-ups.

Top 15 Foods And Herbs To Cleanse Your Blood:

Raw garlic is loaded with sulfur, an essential mineral that helps the body to get rid of toxins. It stimulates your liver to produce detoxification enzymes to filter toxins out of your blood stream.

    • Jenny says:

      Yes, the seeds are quite hard with a tough exterior which makes them difficult for the intestinal enzymes to break down. If you eat the seeds without grinding, they’ll pass through the intestines and out of the body without giving you their benefits.
