Ever hear “just drink lemon water?” There’s a reason for that, especially if you’re having digestion issues. According to Alive Magazine, Lemons are digestion aids because they cause saliva flow to increase and promote liver function. They are also alkalizing food which helps neutralize acidity and helps with digestion. We like to start our mornings with a hot cup of water with lemon. It helps with bowel movement but also gives you energy!
Garlic is one of the most powerful detoxifying foods. According to a 2020 study, Foods that cleanses the liver, due to having sulfur compounds, garlic helps the liver flush out toxins. In addition, garlic helps fight against toxins, which is due to the makeup of Allicin and Selenium. Thank goodness, garlic is detoxifying because garlic is pretty much in every recipe! So, you’re most likely consuming detoxifying food without even trying.
