Cleanse New Years

NutrIcon: Cleanse 2020 out of your system!

When it comes to the topic of juice cleanses, the opinions vary. Although there is no scientific way to prove cleanses work, many people feel more energized, and attribute cleanses to enhanced athletic performance.

Naturally, as humans, we are exposed to many toxins in our daily lives. These toxins can come from the environment we are exposed to and even the food we eat. As these toxins accumulate, they stick to the walls of our intestines and organs. Maintaining a detox regimen can eliminate toxins from your body, cleanse your organs, purify cells and tissues, eliminate waste build-up and decrease inflammation.

There are many methods you can try, although if your ultimate goal isn’t weight loss, then detoxing is relatively easy. We have an exceptional system in place made up of our kidneys and liver, which do an outstanding job at eliminating any toxins in our body. Which means the ultimate cleanse is merely looking after your liver.

You can start by cutting out:

  • Energy Drinks
  • Sweet CoolDrinks
  • Fried Foods
  • Saturated Fats
  • Sugar and Sweets
  • Alcohol

And increase:

  • Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
  • Whole Grains
  • Lean Proteins

As for the cherry on top, add garlic! Garlic is made up of sulphur compounds which activate liver enzymes. These enzymes are the primary solution to flushing out toxins. Garlic also has high amounts of selenium and allicin compounds which prevent your liver from getting any toxic damage!

Though, if you want to take it a step further, the most effective detox juice is made up of a combination of freshly squeezed lemon juice, cayenne pepper and maple syrup. You can consume this mixture up to six times a day for a minimum of 10 days. There is no need to consume it for longer than 40 days at a time. Pair it with herbal teas, such as green tea, to encourage the expulsion of waste.

The reason lemon juice is the main component is that it is high in vitamins and acts as the cleansing agent while balancing your bodies pH levels. Maple syrup is used because it is seen as having the perfect balance between positive and negative sugars, and there is a high belief that cayenne pepper speeds up the metabolism.

When you choose to do a cleanse, make sure you are cutting out harmful foods to see the best results. You may not decide to try the detox cleanse right away, but remember, simple changes to your diet will maintain liver health and encourage a healthier and happier lifestyle.
