Our organs, mainly our liver, which is the critical organ moving toxins and purifying our blood can get overwhelmed by things like pollution and chemicals. It’s important to make sure we eat and drink things that help to flush the toxins out and give our cleansing organs a much needed break. Certain foods have an effective cleansing properties when it comes to detoxification and reducing inflammation in the body. For instance, organic leafy greens, fermented foods, veggies and wild berries are great foods that not only cleanse and detoxify but effectively improve the well-being and overall health.

Add a teaspoon of Sea Buckthorn powder to your smoothie, natural yogurt or porridge. It has a wide range of nutrients that improve well-being and detoxification in the body.

Also try this nourishing smoothie.
