What makes it “DETOX”:
Garlic: In one 12-week study, a daily garlic supplement was shown to significantly reduce cold symptoms by nearly 70% compared to a placebo group. Some other studies suggest that garlic supplementation is also helpful with lowering blood pressure and aid in fighting cancer.
Ginger: Ginger is thought to aid in digestion and reduce bloating. Some research suggests that it may also help to lower blood sugar levels.
Turmeric: Turmeric contains curcumin, which is a powerful antioxidant that is thought to fight inflammation.
Lentils. Lentils are rich in polyphenols, which may help to improve blood sugar. Lab tests also suggest that the polyphenols in lentils may help to slow or stop skin cancer growth.
(Optional add) Cilantro. Also known as coriander, this powerful herb may help with removing heavy metals from the body. Research suggests it may also help to improve memory and manage anxiety.
(Optional add) Lemon: Lemons are a source of vitamin C, providing about 31mg per lemon. (That’s about 51% of the reference daily intake (RDI).) Vitamin C may help to lower the risk of stroke and promote heart health.
