Our Detox Meal Plan is an anti-oxidant-rich meal plan to support all of your detoxifying needs.
This plan features: Fiber.
Fiber is an important nutrient to reduce anxiety. It helps control blood sugar and feeds beneficial gut bacteria to produce short-chain fatty acids, which supply your cells with energy. Fiber can be found in this plan from whole grains, legumes, seeds, and cruciferous vegetables.
Polyphenols found in foods like spinach and olives may help to control oxidative stress and the inflammatory response. Fiber lowers C-reactive protein, a substance in the blood that indicates inflammation. It also modulates the gut microbiome, which helps to prevent inflammation.
As gut health impacts immune function, it is beneficial to restore a healthy gut barrier. Prebiotics are added to this plan from asparagus, garlic, and leafy greens.
Omega-3 fats can assist with stress reduction through cortisol concentrations. These healthy fats are found in the program from salmon, mackerel, and sardines. The liver is a key organ for regulating hormone balance, chemical levels in the blood, making immune factors, and breaking down and excreting harmful substances. Indoles (including indole-3-Carbinol) are essential to liver support and can be found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and kale.
The minerals zinc and selenium are critical for immune function. This plan provides zinc from meat and selenium from chicken and lettuce. Vitamin A is an essential fat-soluble antioxidant that reduces oxidative stress in cells and is useful in treating inflammatory diseases. This meal plan contains vitamin A sources like broccoli, salmon, and spinach. Vitamin C supports the immune system, and this plan provides vitamin C from cauliflower, kale, and lemon.
