The Best Body Detox Diet

The Best Body Detox Diet

With so many detox diets on the market, how do you know what's best? In terms of simplicity and popularity, the Master Cleanse, or Lemonade Diet, stands out from the rest. I've tried it, and it really works.

Salt Water
To flush out your colon, you will need to drink a quart of salt water every morning. Add two teaspoons of unrefined sea salt to the lukewarm filtered water.

Filtered Water
Because most tap water contains fluoride, chlorine and can contain heavy metals and other toxins, it is essential to filter your water. After all, this is a detox diet, and the last thing you need is to add new toxins while eliminating the old ones.

Organic Lemons
Lemons are a natural diuretic, and they have high levels of vitamin C. Freshly squeeze two tablespoons of juice from an organic lemon into a 10-ounce glass of warm filtered water. Drink at least six glasses a day.

Cayenne Powder
Cayenne chili powder will improve your circulation and release accumulated mucus. Add 1/10 teaspoon per glass.

Grade B Maple Syrup
Only pure, organic grade B maple syrup will do as it is less refined and more nutrient dense. Add two tablespoons per glass.

Laxative Herbal Tea
Drink a glass of organic laxative tea before bed. The "smooth move" senna brand is a good choice.
