Basil being a detoxifier and a mild diuretic, helps to reduce the acid level in the body, which is one of the main components linked to kidney stones. It also helps to clean out the kidneys through increased frequency of urination.
The accumulation of acids in the body are some of the ill effects of eating toxic foods. Strawberries, with their impressive content of antioxidants and detoxifiers, can effectively help to eliminate acid in the body. Many of these acids are the primary causes of arthritis, gout and many other irritating and debilitating conditions.
One of the many causes of arthritis is an excess of uric acid that builds up in the body. Uric acid is one of the waste products that normal urination will clear out of the body, but when too much builds up, it can make the pain and inflammation in the body worse. Key limes helps to eliminate acids from the body with its anti-inflammatory properties.
