Many people know that they have toxins in their bodies, but hard work can’t eliminate them, so all kinds of detoxification products on the market have become popular. In fact, the most effective disinfectant is around us, which is food. As toxins are accumulating every day, how to start with diet and clean up the body becomes the basic task of detoxification. Health experts recommend:
(1) Drink more water. Drinking water to excrete is one of the important methods of human detoxification. Drinking more water can promote metabolism, shorten the retention time of feces in the intestine, reduce the absorption of toxins, and dissolve water-soluble toxins. It’s better to drink a cup of warm boiled water on an empty stomach every morning. The amount of drinking water should be about 2 liters every day. In this way, the toxins in the body can be flushed by water to reduce the burden on the kidney. Li Shizhen’s Compendium of Materia Medica also lists “water chapter” as the first chapter of the book. There are also common sayings such as “medicine is better than food, food is better than water”, which fully express the importance of water health care.
(2) Change your eating habits. Salted foods contain nitrosamines, which are substances that cause aging.
Modern people stress to eat light, and even rise a wave of detox food. Many Detox meals are vegetables and fruits, which is a correct concept.
To replace refined food with natural food, fresh fruit is a powerful purification food, pineapple, papaya, kiwi fruit, pear are good choices. In addition, the reason why the feces stay in the human body is that the intestinal peristalsis is not enough. Usually eat more fiber rich food, such as brown rice, vegetables, fruits, etc., can speed up intestinal peristalsis, reduce the occurrence of constipation.
(3) Control salt intake. Too much salt will lead to the closure of urine, sweat, water accumulation in the body. If you always have a strong taste, try using celery and other vegetables with natural flavor instead of salt.
(4) Add antioxidants properly. Some antioxidants, such as vitamin C and vitamin E, can eliminate free radicals in the body.
(5) Eat slowly and chew carefully. In this way, it can secrete more saliva, neutralize various toxic substances, cause benign chain reaction and discharge more toxins.
