Detox


There is little or no doubt that our daily intake and consumption of food/drinks do a lot of damage to our health especially when they are unhealthy. Our environment is polluted with toxins
and harmful substances therefore making these toxins detrimental to our cell function.
Detox entails the process or period of time in which one abstains from or rides the body of toxins/unhealthy substances. This simply means quitting the intake of unhealthy food and drinks into the body for a period of time in order to improve health.

BENEFITS OF DETOX

Physical Benefits
The most noticeable benefits from detoxification are the physical ones. Since the toxins store up in major organs, detoxification will help these areas the most. The organs which are affected, such as the liver and stomach, will begin to work more effectively. After the detox is completed, you may feel “lighter” and have more energy. Also, since a detox is used to clear away free radicals, your body’s immune system will be stronger and you will have a lower risk of getting cancer. Finally, a detoxification regimen will clear your blood, helping it circulate better.

 Mental Benefits
Toxins and free radicals that accumulate in the body can also affect brain functions. Before a detox, you may have trouble sleeping, chronic fatigue, and trouble with your concentration. Once you work through this process, many of these issues will gradually disappear. You will be able to sleep better and concentrate more.

 Lifestyle change
A benefit which most people don’t think of can be the change to your lifestyle. As you progress through the body detox, you will begin to feel better physically and mentally. This feeling can be addictive and lead to changing your lifestyle to cut out bad elements which give your body those toxins. Quitting smoking, eating better, and getting more exercise are all actions which help protect the body. After a detox is a perfect time to begin these actions.
You can easily get your detox started with the options below......

Green Juice
A green juice comprises of fruits and vegetables filled with antioxidants, phytochemicals, minerals and vitamins sometimes as much as a day's worth of vegetables in one serving. When vegetables are juiced, the natural sugars in the vegetable are separated from the pulp, which is where the fiber is located. A green juice may contain the following: lettuce, cucumber, pineapple, ginger, kale, cabbage, broccoli, spinach, banana, ugwu, apples, avocado, watermelon etc. Combine fruits and vegetables to your taste but ensure the vegetables exceeds the fruits.
