Reviewed by Herbalist, Rasheeqa Ahmad on 20 July, 2019
Considering the importance of blood to your overall health, it is a surprise that more people don’t know about blood cleansing and its benefits. Every day your body is encountering large quantities of toxins in your food and the environment and whilst your body is built to fight these off, why not give it some help?
Cleansing can make you feel more energetic, clear your skin of unwanted blemishes, and leave you feeling more alert.
Here are some of our best tips for keeping your blood at its brilliant best.
Have Plenty of lemon water
One of the best ways to flush out the harmful chemicals is by having lemon water every morning. Your liver – an organ responsible for removing toxins and poisons from the body – is incredibly active as you sleep so supporting its function when you wake up is important. Drinking lemon water in the morning can improve your body’s ability to filter toxins by allowing your liver to function at full speed. This has the knock-on effect of improving the purity of your blood and lymphatic system.
B vitamins for healthy blood cells
Vitamin B12 and folate can be found in most green-leafed vegetables like spinach, beans and peas. These natural chemicals help to metabolise homocysteine. When homocysteine is too abundant in our bodies, it can increase the damage to arteries and restrict blood flow. All of these factors reduce the body’s ability to remove toxins.
Echinacea shouldn’t just be taken when you have a cold. The properties that help you fight a cold also help to keep you body – and blood – in tiptop condition. Studies have shown the Echinacea increases the production of white blood cells and macrophages: both of which are vital in the process of fighting off foreign bodies, chemicals and toxins.
Burdock root is famed for its anti-oxidant properties amongst herbalists. It is also a diuretic which helps the kidneys filter impurities from the blood. It also helps the liver perform the same function.
Burdock is also a good source of polyacetylenes which has been shown to have strong anti-bacterial properties.
Dandelion may be seen a common lawn weed by some but it is a potent blood purifier. Like Burdock root, it aids the kidneys and liver with purification.
You can take Dandelion as root, herb or tincture but if you want to try something new, why not try dandelion coffee?
You can support the benefits of these remedies by ensuring you exercise regularly. Aim to do at least 30 minutes of exercise and stretching each day. This will improve your blood circulation and break down the toxins stored in fat cells. It will also help you excrete toxins through your sweat!
