Cleansing your system or detoxification is an important step when you are trying to lose weight. The process is simple and only needs a few ingredients you have in hand. Check them out.
Avocado contains compounds that aid the body in the production of an amino acid called glutathione which binds to toxins in the liver before they are excreted. This helps in liver detoxification. Avocados also contain healthy fats that stimulate the release of bile from the gallbladder which is important because the liver discards the toxins that it processes into the bile, and the timely release of the bile is important for detoxification.
Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable which helps in detoxification. The presence of sulphoraphane in broccoli triggers the liver to produce detoxifying enzymes that block free radical attack on DNA. Broccoli also contains glutathione that helps to get rid of harmful toxins from the liver.
Adding broccoli in your smoothie will help prevent colon cancer as well due to the presence of indole glucosinolates.
There are people who drink cucumber water to detox their body. Cucumbers are known for their anti-diabetic, antioxidant and lipid-lowering properties which give a cleansing effect on the body. It cleanses the liver by removing the accumulated waste material in the blood and gut.
Adding cucumber in this green smoothie will offer valuable vitamins and minerals and they are low in calories too, which is ideal in losing weight.
4. Green Apple
Green apple is as healthy as the red apple though both differ in taste; the green ones are little sour and sweet in taste compared to the red ones. Green apples have low fat content and are an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin C.
Adding green apples in the green smoothie will fight wrinkles, improve the skin's texture and cleanse your system due to the presence of antioxidants.
Coconut water contains antioxidants that can fight the free radicals which cause the early onset of ageing and other diseases. It is an ideal beverage filled with nutrients which prevent the formation of kidney stones and also help to remove toxins from the body.
Coconut water speeds up your metabolism which, in turn, helps to burn sugar and lose fat faster.
