5 Best Detox Foods You Should Start Feeding Your Pet
As all of us known, water pollution, air pollution, soil pollution and chemicals, preservatives, flavoring & coloring in the food are the main pollutants which can lead to toxicity within our pet's bodies, and the unhealthy junk treats we feed our pets put a lot of load in their bodies too, all of these may cause serious physical and mental issues.
A high level of toxins in the body can lead to several diseases:
-Fatigue and weakness
-Muscle and joint pain
So it’s essential that we understand the importance of detoxifying our pets twice a year. Detoxification protects them from diseases caused by the toxins and promotes overall health and wellness. There are lots of ways to maintain a clean balance such as exercise regularly, quit some bad habits likes feeding processed food and treats. Here are some foods your pet can eat to cleanse their body:
This is such great food for pets (even though there is so much misinformation about this fruit) to eat because avocado is packed with antioxidants, including glutathione, which detoxes their body by transporting the harmful chemicals and toxins outside of it. Plus, its fiber content (one medium avocado contains around 10g) helps in detoxification.
Cabbage is another affordable great food for detoxing, it’s filled with sulfur too, as well as glucosinolates, which is essential to break the harmful chemicals and toxins and clean them from your pet's body, and this super vegetable also provides rich fiber to aid in the digestion process and regulates bowel movements which help their body get rid of the toxins.
Green tea is being considered as the least processed tea and thus provides the most antioxidant polyphenols, notably a catechin called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which can help the body get rid of free radicals effectively. And the antioxidants improve liver functions too, which is essential for detoxification.
Broccoli, this super cruciferous vegetable contains more calcium than a glass of milk and has more vitamin C than an orange. In addition to the minerals and vitamins, it’s full of antioxidants, which can cleanse your body, specifically works with the enzymes in your liver to turn toxins into something your body can eliminate easily. So try to add broccoli into your plate, and for a higher level of nutrients and better health value, choose raw broccoli. Remember, don’t microwave it as this may destroy its detox potential.
It’s important to make sure that the harmful chemicals and toxins actually make it out of your pet's body when you’re detoxing them. Beets can do this because they can boost the body’s cellular intake of oxygen and they are enriched in betaine and pectin, which protect your digestive system and the liver to cleanse the body. (Do not confuse the cheap beet pulp used in processed food as being the same are the non-processed whole food)
