Isn't the world on a sudden health-conscious overhaul? Even the buzz about detox has been around for quite a long time.

Why detox? ...because noxious elements induced in our body by our unhealthy lifestyle and the environment that we live in create a need for major cleansing of our body and mind as well.
For over thousands of years, Ayurveda has provided us with effective home remedies. 'Herbal cleanse' is an ideal way to detox and avoid overloading your organs with extra work as they have a whole slew of functions to take care of. When toxins proliferate in a frenzy, that's when Ayurvedic herbs come to your rescue.


Neem, a wonder herb fits the bill perfectly for a detox regime, due to its antifungal, antibacterial, antiseptic and antiviral properties. It actively flushes the unwanted metabolic waste thereby cleaning your system and catalyzing better blood circulation.

Aloe Vera

Bacteria and toxins formed by acidic foods cause inflammation and other maladies. Being an alkaline-forming food, Aloe Vera acts as the perfect antidote to the acidic waste and so, proves to be a potent colon cleanser. With its powerful antioxidants, it rinses toxic matter from the kidneys, stomach, spleen, liver and bladder.


Ginger happens to be a staple ingredient in various detox procedures. This zingy spice miraculously stimulates digestion, perspiration and circulation. Known as the disease-fighting herb, it not only improves metabolism but also invigorates liver function. This warming root aids to scavenge free-radicals too.


A renowned detoxifier, Nettle possesses properties that ensure wiping out malignant toxins and stimulate the lymphatic system which result in healthier kidneys. Its diuretic nature neutralizes the body waste and eliminates it immediately purifying your liver.


The Charaka Samhita asserts that the nourishment procured from Haritaki is equivalent to a mother’s milk. It is a Rasayana that cleanses the channels (Srotas) due to an easier absorption by the body.

A restorative, Haritaki balances the three basic elements governing our body - Vata, Pitta and Kapha - also known as Tridoshas.


Revered by Ayurveda, Amla is one of the best rejuvenative herbs. Moreover, it balances stomach acids and relieves constipation. When it comes to detox, it has a Bhedana effect, i.e., it drills the clogged channels clean of the impurities. An excellent source of vitamin C, this tangy fruit promotes a long and disease-free life.

Licorice Root

An indispensable herbal formula, Licorice (Yashtimadhu) can remove a whooping 1200 toxins. Licorice is also considered as an excellent detox drink, which simultaneously strengthens the liver and kidneys. It flushes out metal and chemical contamination from your system which may otherwise pose a threat to your immune system.

Chyawanprash - A Revitalizing Potion

Gone are the days when herbs were found in every herbalist’s cabinet. An easier option is the age-old herbal concoction 'Chyawanprash'. This immunity boosting superfood is widely acclaimed as a blood purifier and body cleanser. It annihilates toxins, heals the body of ailments and works wonders for your overall health.
