According to this study, eating at least 1 cucumber daily can help reverse liver damage and reduce toxin overload in the liver. Since the liver is the largest detoxification organ, eating foods that help it function properly should be high on your list.

Also, cucumbers are rich in dietary fiber and a compound known as cucurbitacins, both of which help support digestive health and function. If you didn’t know, fiber helps keep you regular and reduces fluid retention and bloating.

As you consume cucumbers regularly, you will pee more and in the process, your body gets rid of toxins. As for lemons, they contain antioxidants that relieve the body of free radicals and toxins. That said, if you suffer from GERD or acid reflux, it can increase your symptoms.

Apple cider vinegar helps balance your pH levels, improves good gut bacteria, and increases circulation and lymphatic drainage.
