So, 2022 has arrived, and with it, a renewed dedication to our health and wellbeing. If the indulgence of Christmas has left you feeling bloated and uncomfortable, you aren’t alone. Christmas is a time of excess; in stark contrast, January is a time of resolving to do things healthier. One way to kick start your new year regime is a detox.
The benefits of detoxing
A detox is a way of healing your body, eliminating the bad stuff and replacing it with all the good things such as vitamins and minerals. Not only does detoxing help you lose a few pounds, but it gives you more energy, improves your mood and generally makes you feel better.
It’s a natural way to accelerate recovery and repair, as you allow the body to restore balance, remove toxins and excess fat.
During the cleanse, you ease the digestive process by replacing meals with organic, nutrient-dense juices to provide you with a whole load of healing and energising vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.
Once the fibres in the vegetables and low-GI fruit are broken down, the body quickly absorbs the vitamins, phytonutrients, minerals, amino acids, and beneficial enzymes.
The result of a juice cleanse is natural weight loss, glowing skin, brighter eyes, cleaner blood, liver, kidneys, and an invigorating sense of optimism. Let’s face it, after the last couple of years; we could all do with that!
A detox is like an internal shower – refreshing and invigorating, which is why it’s a great way to start the New Year.
Reasons to detox
Detoxing has a positive effect on many aspects of your wellbeing both physical and mental. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits below.
The majority of us live busy, hectic lifestyles, which lead us to take shortcuts such as eating takeaways or processed meals. As a nation, we’re overfed and undernourished because we tend to eat nutrient-depleted foods and contain toxins such as hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, and other artificial chemicals.
These toxins are stored in fat cells, tissues, bodily organs – even the brain. Fatigue, allergies, weight gain, low energy, poor immunity, and many other health conditions are all signs that we are not detoxifying properly.
To give your organs a break
By stopping and replacing convenience, processed or even just excess food with nutrient-rich juices, you’re giving your body a Spring clean.
This means that you shift toxins out of your body, giving your organs a rest and conditioning them to naturally increase your energy levels.
You tend to notice the physical benefits of a detox first. As toxins are removed, major organs start to operate more efficiently, and you can enjoy weight loss, increased energy levels, reduced bloating, clearer skin and eyes, improved circulation, decreased signs of ageing should all follow.
After the physical benefits, you notice the more subtle benefits of a detox. These can include decreased sugar cravings, improved concentration, feeling calmer, improved mental clarity and a better sleep pattern.
To start a lifestyle change
If you’re looking to kickstart a new lifestyle, a detox is a great place to start. Once you start feeling better, it can be addictive and can make you want to start living differently.
All that sounds great right, who wouldn’t want all those benefits? For many people, a detox sounds perfect on paper but come time to carry it out; it all seems so difficult. There’s the shopping list of ingredients to buy, a blender is needed, is it the right blender, will all the ingredients just go off sat in the fridge, will you forget to take your juice with you when you leave the house?
This brings us back full circle to the reason most of us are undernourished and overfed, to begin with. We think we may have found the perfect solution, though. What if you didn’t have to worry about veg and fruit going off? What if you could receive it all prepped and conveniently frozen, 100% vegan and nutrient-dense?
We’ve found a Unique 7-Day Superfood Juice Detox that can do all of that. You even get a 15-minute consultation with Dr Britt Cordi and an eBook to help you on your journey to a healthier you. Find out all about the 7-day detox here.
