Foods That Support The Lymphatic System
Start treating your lymphatic system better by avoiding toxins, chemicals, and foods that are hard to digest—that means processed foods that are steeped in pesticides, preservatives, and artificial ingredients.
Then begin adding more of these foods to your life.
Water – Maybe it isn’t a food, but it is vital to life. Drink plenty of clean, purified water. Water keeps the lymph fluid hydrated and flowing smoothly.
- Cranberry – Cranberry is an excellent emulsifier of fat. It will help break down excess fat for the lymphatic vessels to carry away. Choose fresh cranberry fruits and juices, not the sweetened and pasteurized processed ones.
- Leafy Greens – Chlorophyll, the green nutrient that captures sunlight, has powerful cleansing properties and beneficial effects on the blood and thus on lymph fluid as well. Look for dark greens for chlorophyll like kale, spinach, wheat grass, barley grass, turnip greens, dandelion leaves, broccoli, and mustard greens.
- Nuts and Seeds – Essential fatty acids, the healthy fats found in seeds like chia, nuts, olive oil, coconut oil, sacha inchi, coconut, and avocado, play a role in fighting inflammation. They also strengthen vascular tissue, help in the absorption of fat soluble vitamins and minerals, and aid in the removal of fat soluble wastes.
- Garlic – Garlic boosts immune function and combats harmful microbes. It improves circulation and aids in the cleansing of toxins.
- Ginger – Ginger has beneficial effects on digestion and circulation, two systems that are tied directly to the lymphatic system.
- Turmeric – Turmeric is related to ginger. It helps reduce inflammation, thins blood, and improves circulation.
- Seaweed – Sea vegetables help the body detox and eliminate excess fluid that can build up in tissues and slow the lymphatic system down. An alternative to seaweed is with regard to lymph drainage is fresh fruits; organic dried fruits; green vegetables such as kale, spinach, wheatgrass, broccoli; garlic; turmeric; raw, unsalted nuts and seeds (pre-soaked and dehydrated); foods that are high in iodine – organic baked potatoes with skin, cooked navy beans, boiled eggs.
- Citrus – Citrus fruits aid hydration, carry powerful antioxidants and enzymes, and help cleanse and protect the lymphatic system. They aren’t alone.
- Home-made fresh fruit and vegetable juices of all sorts will deliver more hydration, enzymes, and antioxidants to the body.
- Echinacea tea – reserved for extreme cases of lymphedema.
