Basil, Turmeric, And More Natural Alternatives To Detoxify The Blood


Our blood plays a significant role in our bodies. It supplies oxygen and nutrients to tissues, maintains homeostasis, removes waste, regulates body pH and core body temperature, and transports hormones and other signals throughout the body. For our blood to be able to do all of these, we must ensure that it is pure and toxin-free. And when it comes to blood purification, our kidney and liver are the ones that are majorly responsible. There are also some natural ways wherein we can help these organs in their detoxification process.


Dandelion


This herbal weed is packed with a powerful punch of phytonutrients and antioxidants. It may scavenge free radicals and eliminate toxins from the blood and digestive tract. It works by stimulating the liver and pancreas to pull out toxins from the bloodstream and detoxify the blood.

One way of enjoying this benefit is by brewing tea with fresh or dried dandelion leaves, flowers, or roots.


Basil


Basil is known for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. But aside from this, the culinary herb also has the ability to purify our blood and remove any toxic buildup from the liver and kidneys.

Simply enjoy a cup of an herbal tea by brewing six to eight basil leaves in a cup of hot water. We can also crush five to six basil leaves and add it to salads, soups, or pasta for some extra flavor


Lemon juice


Lemon juice is naturally acidic but once metabolized it actually becomes alkaline. It may help in clearing our blood and digestive tract of toxins that may interfere with our health. With an alkaline environment, many viruses and other pathogens are unable to survive. Drink fresh lemon juice every day in the morning on an empty stomach to remove unwanted toxins from the body. Squeeze the juice of 1/2 lemon into a glass of warm water and drink it before breakfast.


Turmeric


This golden spice is one of the best natural healers. It can help fight inflammation, promote liver health, flush out all the harmful toxins from our body, and fight most of the other problems in the body.

An easy way of adding turmeric to our diet is by drinking turmeric water. Simply add water in a pan and bring to boil. In a cup, add 1 to 2 pinches of turmeric powder and squeeze some lemon juice. Now add water to this cup and mix. Honey can also be added for some sweetness. Drink this turmeric water regularly. Aside from this, we can also mix 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder in a cup of warm milk and drink it. This drink helps the liver in optimal function.
