While most commonly known for their cute, yellow flowers on front lawns, dandelion greens are actually a nutritional powerhouse and strong liver cleanser! Dandelion is an excellent source of calcium, which keeps your bones strong and your nervous system healthy. A serving of this powerful leafy green provides your entire daily intake of vitamins A and K, which help boost the creation of blood cells and the regulation of blood clotting. It also contains vitamin C to support the immune system and possibly shorten colds! Dandelion is beneficial for eyesight as it boasts a great amount of the nutrients lutein and zeaxanthin.
Cucumber water is found in spas so often for a reason – they’re extremely hydrating for the skin and detoxifying to the body! This fruit masquerading as a vegetable is loaded with antioxidants that fight free radicals and inflammation to possibly fend off or prevent cancer. Cucumbers also offer polyphenols that boast anti-aging properties from oxidative stress. As a natural diuretic, cucumbers help to flush the body of toxins and waste while bolstering the digestive system and liver. This also helps to reduce bloating!
YOUNG COCONUT WATER
The water from fresh young coconuts is the perfect, natural substitute for sugar-laden sports drinks after a workout! Coconut water is loaded with the electrolytes potassium, sodium, calcium, and magnesium, which are vital in maintaining fluid balance, pH levels, and muscle health. These can be lost through our sweat during a hard workout or with dehydration-related illness. Coconut water replenishes electrolyte stores and rehydrates the body while also providing vitamin C and B6.
The benefits of lemon can’t be overstated! This citrus fruit stimulates digestion, which can ease an upset stomach and prevent bloating. It can also boost nutrient absorption and liver function to help flush out toxins in the body. Lemons are a good source of vitamin C to help bolster the immune system and protect the body from oxidative damage. When lemon juice enters the digestive system, it promotes a more alkaline pH and can actually be an energy and mood booster!
Burdock is an orange root vegetable most commonly found in North Asia and Europe and known for its extreme detoxification and blood purification properties. Active compounds in burdock root can help remove heavy metals from the blood leading to improved organ health. Burdock also helps with lymphatic drainage and toxin removal, which promotes your body’s capability of healing itself. Studies have also found that a phytochemical called arctigenin found in Burdock may actually help combat cancer cells!
