Blood - the unsung hero of the body.

in #health3 years ago

Toxins are stored in our body on a daily basis through certain types of foods, pollution and stress among other factors.Detoxification process boosts the immune system, improves the skin and regulates healthy changes. A detox of your body wouldn’t be complete without purifying your blood.
Our blood is responsible for a lot of things, ranging from transporting oxygen,hormones, sugar, fats and cells to your immune system to cleansing your body system and further keep it moving. Kidneys and liver contribute the maximum in the purification of blood. One can take care of these organs in order to stay fit and healthy.
You don’t need a fancy, expensive diet to purify your blood. Just maintaining the right balance of sugar, lipids, and minerals in your blood as well as keeping your hemoglobin and iron levels in check would help too. Water is one of the most common and simplest natural blood purifiers. Kidneys flush out toxins from the blood through urine and water is your best bet to help stimulate this process.
There are foods that may make the job slightly easier. Natural blood purifiers like cabbage, lemon, and beetroot can do exactly this for you. cabbage is considered to be a blood purifier. This leafy cruciferous vegetable has antioxidants like vitamins A and C that are good for your liver. Additionally, the fiber content in cabbage helps cleanse the digestive tract. It can neutralize chemical compounds like those in cigarette smoke and cleanse your liver too.
Beetroot is said to be a natural source of nitrates and antioxidant betalains that can reduce inflammation and oxidative damage in the liver. Most studies have shown that beetroot juice helps increase the production of enzymes that naturally detoxify the body.
Warm water with lemon is said to promote the breakdown of fat and also tends to ease the load on your kidneys,while the vitamins and minerals in the lemons help detox your blood and overall body system.
Turmeric is a golden spice which has numerous benefits. It promotes liver function and is one of the best natural healers. A compound found in turmeric named curcumin can fight inflammation and most of the other problems in the body. Beside this, turmeric generates red blood cells and pills the body with essential nutrients which act as health tonics.
Various fishes like salmon, sardines, and tuna contain omega-3 fatty acids which decrease the triglyceride levels in the blood and also lowers the blood pressure which ultimately helps liver and kidneys to purify it effectively.
Thanks for reading.


One thing I don't see mentioned in things like this is the helpfulness of milk. Milk (especially lowfat milk) is able to bind with excess fat, and rather than going through the effort of breaking it down, it just makes it harmless until it reaches the kidneys.
