Cauliflower is high in phytochemicals called glucosinolates and hence helps in the detoxification process. Glucosinolates are broken down in the intestines to compounds called isothiocyanates and indole-3-carbinol. These compounds regulate the body’s detoxification enzymes.
Plus, cauliflower contains vitamin C that supports liver functioning and vitamin K that helps protect the liver from damage and fights free radicals.
Cauliflower can be enjoyed sautéed, steamed or boiled. You can also add raw cauliflower florets to salads.
Ginger is also considered one of the best detoxifying herbs. The compounds called gingerols and shogaols in ginger promote detoxification by speeding the movement of food through the intestines. This in turn helps remove harmful waste and toxins from the colon, liver and other organs.
Ginger is also beneficial to your liver, especially if you’re suffering from a fatty liver caused by drinking too much alcohol.
One of the best ways to enjoy ginger’s detoxifying benefit is by sipping ginger tea. You can prepare the tea by steeping about two teaspoons of fresh grated ginger in a cup of hot water for five to 10 minutes. You can also add freshly grated ginger to salad dressing, or extract the juice of fresh ginger root along with other green vegetables.
