top 10 detoxing foods to start eating today

Simone Laubscher PH.D., formulator of the Super Elixir and founder of Rejuv Wellness, shares her top 10 detoxing foods to start eating today.

Our bodies perform a natural detox by design. That’s what the liver, the colon, and so many other organs and processes are programmed to do. However, in today’s modern world, toxins are everywhere, all the time. Since our bodies are inundated with so many more pollutants now, it's important to aid your body's natural detoxification abilities. Discover Dr. Simone Laubscher, Phd, favorite foodie allies she recommends to add to your rotation!

Support your body & nourish it well with these 10 herbs & plants you can easily implement in your everyday health routine!

1. Garlic

Garlic is so wonderful to support detox due to its antibacterial, antiviral, and antibiotic properties. And it contains allicin, which is brilliant for cleansing the liver and boosting white blood cells, thus supporting your immune system, too.

Throw it in any dish, or sauté it in a pot before heating some broth to sip on for the ultimate detoxifying and immune-boosting elixir.

2. Turmeric

Turmeric, a vibrant spice, is celebrated for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, primarily due to curcumin, its active compound. It can help mitigate chronic inflammation, potentially reducing the risk of diseases like heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer's. Turmeric also supports joint health, easing arthritis symptoms, and boosts the immune system. Its antioxidant effects may improve skin health and combat aging signs. Moreover, turmeric has been shown to aid in digestion and detoxification. Incorporating turmeric into your diet, either in meals or as a supplement, can offer a natural boost to your health and wellness.


3. Lemon

Lemons, rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, offer numerous health benefits. They support the immune system, improve skin health, aid in iron absorption to prevent anemia, and may protect against cancer. Their soluble fiber promotes digestive health and weight management. Adding lemon to water enhances taste and encourages better hydration, contributing to overall wellness.

4. Ginger

Ginger is a powerful root with extensive health benefits, renowned for its ability to alleviate digestive issues such as nausea and indigestion. Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties can reduce muscle pain and soreness, making it beneficial for exercise recovery. Ginger also plays a role in lowering blood sugar levels and improving heart health. Additionally, its compounds might help in fighting infections and boosting the immune system. Incorporating ginger into your diet, whether as a spice, tea, or supplement, can contribute to overall health and well-being.

If you're not the biggest fan of ginger, you can still reap the benefits in a powdered form, with the Rejuv Digestive Support Capsules which also contains Turmeric!

"I love the combination of lemon and ginger. I recommend all my patients start their day with 500 ml of room-temp or warm water with fresh lemon juice and ginger—it’s the ultimate liver detoxifier. Since we have been fasting overnight, it helps bind to toxins, flushing them out via our urinary system. Lemon and ginger are both are loaded with antioxidants, which slows down ageing and reduce DNA damage.”

5. Hibiscus

Hibiscus supports detox, particularly the liver, by increasing drug-detoxifying enzymes to reduce your toxic load, and is very nourishing for your blood, too. You can drink hibiscus in tea form, which is delicious and tart. Drink alone or mix with dried rose or nettle for an extra high-vibe tea pick-me-up.

6. Artichoke

Artichokes protect your liver from damage and promote the growth of new liver tissue—a wonderful restorative ability. They also increase the production of bile, which helps remove harmful toxins from your liver and supports digestion. Have it steamed or roasted and dipped in butter! 

7. Moringa

Moringa is amazing at reducing acidity and inflammation—great detox support at a cellular level. It is also great for hair, skin, and nails, and as a bonus, for male sexual performance. Add it to smoothies, or use it to pump up your daily matcha!

8. Sauerkraut

In addition to being packed with prebiotics and probiotics to support your digestive and immune systems, sauerkraut also helps detox your liver and remove heavy metals in your system. Fermented foods are powerful, not to mention delicious.

9. Green Tea

The main polyphenol compound in green tea is a potent free radical scavenger to support your liver’s detox. Polyphenols are also linked to preventing cancer and heart disease. Since green tea is also quite bitter, it is useful to reduce sugar cravings, reduce appetite and therefore, a great weight loss tool. Besides enjoying a cup of green tea, you can also take the Rejuv Thermo Metabolic Support Capsules to reap the super benefits of Green tea.

Matcha is an even more powerful option: 1 cup of Matcha is nutritionally equivalent to 10 cups of brewed green tea! Did you know that Matcha has 5 times the amount of antioxidants of any other plant-based source, what's not to love!

10. Wheatgrass

The green chlorophyll in wheatgrass is a powerful detox aid supporting the removal of impurities and toxins, including heavy metals. It’s a great friend to reduce inflammation and support our mitochondria to boost energy levels. Juice it, blend it, or get a green powder to add to water, juice, or smoothies. Easy peasy.

My go-to, the all in one greens powder, The Super Elixir, contains Wheatgrass along with 40+ other whole food ingredients from Spirulina to Kelp. The Super Elixir is a simple & delicious way to get in your daily dose of greens!


By integrating these natural detoxifiers into our diets, we can enhance our body's resilience against pollutants, support vital organ function, and promote overall vitality and well-being. Let's nourish and fortify our bodies with these essential foodie allies for optimal health.
