Are you joining us for a detox post-holiday season?
We want to share with you some of our top supplements that are crucial in supporting the detoxification pathways in your body. These are the perfect addition to add to a clean eating plan!
But first we want to address the elephant in the room... We know what you're thinking… "Is it really necessary for me to detox?"
Unfortunately, many of the foods that we eat as well as our environment is flooded with toxins now days that place a load onto our organ systems (especially the liver and gut) such as microplastics, pesticides, additives, preservatives, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, alcohol, junk food + more. Performing a detox once a year is a great way to help flush these out and give your body the extra boost that it needs to restore balance and thrive.
Most people will feel more energy and overall enhanced health & well-being following a detox protocol, with other possible benefits including improved mental clarity, hormone balance, immunity, gut health, skin health and weight loss.
So why not join us and give yourself the best start to the year?
Check out some of our favourite detoxification supplements below to get started on your detox plan alongside a healthy diet! These can be used individually but will have greater results when used all together.
1. The Ultimate Liver Herb: Flordis Legalon
This is going to have a spot in every proper detoxification program out there! Milk thistle is a herb that acts as a super antioxidant and clinically researched to support the health and detoxification pathways of the liver. It also assists with relieving inflammation in the body, reducing free radical damage, supporting elimination pathways and promoting gut health. We highly recommend this product and consider it a must have for your detox regimen.
2. Aloe Vera: The Ultimate Tonic & Health Booster
Aloe Vera is known as one of the oldest medicinal plants and has numerous benefits that act on each organ of elimination such as the skin, liver, lungs, lymphs, kidneys and bowels! If you're going to invest in some aloe vera juice - this is the month to do it! This is one of the purest brands you can get, and contains over 2000 nutrients in one serving, including essential minerals required for healthy liver function and properties that support the healing of the gut. We recommend adding this to smoothies or taking it as a shot as a great way to support bowel movements and proper elimination of toxins from the body.
3. Super Greens for Super Health
A complex blend of nutrient dense sprouts, grasses, algae and digestive enzymes, this is going to help create a true glow from within. The addition of digestive enzymes help kickstart and take a load off of the digestive processes to facilitate detoxification as well as added antioxidant rich Chlorella and Spirulina to support heavy metal detoxification. We recommend adding this one to truly energize the body!
4. Neutralize Toxins with Chlorophyll!
There's no such thing as a detox without chlorophyl! This is the part of the plant that assists with converting sunlight to energy and giving plants their green colour. Studies have found that chlorophyl reduces aflatoxin (a specific type of carcinogen) biomarkers by 55% as well as assisting with heavy metal detoxification. Not only this but it has also been found to dramatically improve the immune system by improving white and red blood cell count.
5. NAC: The Ultimate Amino Acid Detoxifier
And our lucky last but definitely favourite nutrition supplement that every detox protocol must have 🙌🏼. N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is necessary for the body's production of glutathione, which is a master antioxidant involved in kidney and liver detoxification processes. It has been found to significantly prevent toxic side effects of pharmaceuticals and environmental factors such as heavy metals. Imagine it as giving your liver the ultimate boost it needs to get the job done.
We are so excited to continue this month of detoxing with you!
