7. Berries

All berries are high in anti-inflammatory compounds. They are also high in fiber, which can help the body to detox via waste elimination. In general, colorful foods from nature are high in antioxidants and anthocyanins, which provide the body with antioxidant, anti-cancer, and anti-inflammatory compounds. Although all types of berries are good for you, the best for fighting pain, inflammation, and for detox power, are blueberries, cranberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries. If you really want to kick inflammation to the curb and detox at the same time, eat 1 cup of mixed berries every day.


8. Fish Oil

Cold water fatty fish such as salmon, trout, and halibut, are high in omega-3 fatty acids which stop inflammation in the cells of muscles as nerve endings. Omega-3 also improve blood circulation, which can offer support to the detoxifying organs of the body. Aim to eat 2 servings of the safest fish to eat each week. If you don’t enjoy fish, you can take a fish oil supplement. Vegan options are chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, and walnuts but these are not converted completely by the body.


9. Apples

Apples are high in a compound called quercetin, which is a polyphenol that fights inflammation in the body. For detoxifying, apples are hard to beat. They contain both pectin and fiber which naturally act like a broom, removing toxins throughout the digestive tract.

Apples are also high in antioxidants which offer serious support for the organs of the body. Eat any variety you like, just be certain that you eat organic and you consume the peel.
