You probably aren’t a big fan of garlic and their strong odour. However, these bad guys are great agents for detoxifying. 

Garlic contains allicin which helps in protecting the body against infections by producing white blood cells. Since garlic contains antiviral, antibiotic, and antibacterial properties, this makes it a great detoxifier.

To get the best effects of garlic as a detoxifier, consume it raw. Now while this might seem repulsive, chopping garlic in small bits and adding it to already made food or salad dressing is a great way to go about consuming the herb raw.

Brew raw ginger into tea or include some ginger into a fresh fruit juice.
