There has never been a better time to detox: Exposure to environmental toxins is more prevalent than ever. But few people are eager to embark on a restrictive cleansing regime. Don't bother. Instead, take these detox supplements daily.
This single-cell algae Chlorella pyrenoidosa is loaded with chlorophyll, a compound believed to cleanse the blood and keep the body from absorbing industrial toxins such as dioxins, says Crinnion. Polysaccharides in the algae’s cell wall also have strong immune-boosting properties. One study of 35 pregnant Japanese women found that those who took chlorella supplements had significantly lower dioxin levels in their breast milk. Dose: One scoop (2–3 grams) of chlorella or another chlorophyll-containing greens powder daily.
