8 Ghanaian foods for detoxing your body

Ginger flushes out toxins and supports liver function all day.


An apple a day saves you extra money. Apple is good for detoxing because of the fiber pectin. Try apple and pineapple smoothie before bed or fruit salad for breakfast.


Avocado is a versatile fruit and also a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin K, copper, folate, vitamin B6, potassium, vitamin E, and vitamin C.

Prepare guacamole, or throw a few slices on your breakfast toast, but the healthy-fat fruit is actually also a detox superstar. Avocados contain glutathione, which helps the liver detoxify synthetic chemicals, helping to rid your body of the unwanted toxins.


Much like Brussels sprouts, cabbage also contains sulfur and stimulates the activation of two crucial liver detoxifying enzymes.


Carrots contain glutathione which makes it one of the most powerful and recommended detoxing vegetable. It is rich in beta-carotenes and vitamin A that’s why most cosmetic companies make good use of it.

Carrots also have cardiovascular benefits and help improve immune function.


Here’s why use plant dandelions in your gardens. Dandelions act on the liver by straining and filtering toxins and waste from the bloodstream. Dandelion root tea has been shown to rid the liver of toxins.


Popularly spice, ginger is powerful for detoxification and also spikes your metabolism, helps to flush out waste, and supports liver functions all day long.


Forget the pungent smell, onions adds flavor to your diet and remove toxins from your body. Onions are packed with sulfur-containing amino acids that detox the liver.


The citrus fruit helps to convert toxins into a water-soluble form that can be easily excreted from the body, literally flushing the unwanted substances from your body.
