The kidneys are the leaders of detoxing your body. They filter the toxic junk from your bloodstream and carry them out to be expelled from the body. Taking care of your kidneys is key to maintaining your body’s natural healing ability. Luckily, there are simple ways to help your kidneys keep clean and functioning properly. The easiest way is through beverages you can find at your grocery store.
Cranberry Juice: Look for the pure varieties with no added sugars. If you like a sweeter drink, try adding some stevia or warm honey.
Beet Juice: Beets are full of antioxidants. There are several natural blends that have beet juice in them you can try. Beets have a natural sweetness that make their juice a great base for smoothies as well!
Warm Lemon Water: Lemon juice cleans the kidneys and aids in digestion. Drinking a mug of warm water with a quarter lemon’s juice in the morning is particularly beneficial for jumpstarting your body’s detox process.
Apple Cider Vinegar: A raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar is a natural supplement for kidney cleansing. Add a tablespoon to your tea or warm lemon water for an extra kick.
Extra Credit: Do a 1, 3, or 5 day cold-pressed juice cleanse. Your kidneys benefit immensely from the shot of vitamins and antioxidants, while the liquid diet takes the regular strain of digestion off the kidneys and other organs.
