I just finished a cleansing program, and I am feeling better then ever!
The meals were delicious, and these supplements allowed me to do this as naturally and efficiently as possible. This seven-day plan will cleanse your body so that you can more easily shred unwanted body fat and increase lean muscle mass.
If you are feeling lethargic, slow, bloated, or ill; or if you are experiencing problems with your digestive system, then a 7-day detox might be just what you need.
5 Detox Supplements
Use the following 5 supplements as directed:
Choose a high-potency multivitamin with selenium, molybdenum and zinc. I prefer raw food multivitamins, because they break down easier and won’t give you any stomach problems.
Choline and Methionine
Choline and Methionine are known as lipotropic factors, meaning these supplements will regulate fat metabolism and increase the flow of bile.
A water-soluble vitamin, vitamin C aids in detoxification. It also helps to decrease some of the potential side effects of cleansing your body, such as headache or nausea.
This herb has many positive effects on the liver. It is an antioxidant, assists in liver cell regeneration, and is particularly useful if you have there has been excess alcohol or fat consumption.
Dandelion roots helps to remove excess water weight from the body while simultaneously increasing the flow of bile.
5 Detox Foods
Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
Choose food sources that are high in vitamin C and glutathione, which are essential for detoxification. Additionally, add the following 5 healthy foods into your diet to promote detox:
These plant compounds are known as caffeoylquinic acids. These acids increase the flow of bile and help to digest fats.
The main nutrient in beets is betaine. This promotes the regeneration of liver cells and the flow of bile, while simultaneously having a beneficial effect on fat metabolism.
Broccoli and other members of the brassica family that include: cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale and kohlrabi, support the liver’s detoxification enzymes.
Onions and Garlic
Onions and Garlic are rich in sulfur-containing compounds, which will lead to the process of sulfication. Sulfication is the main detoxification pathway for environmental chemicals and certain drugs, food additives, etc. These foods are also very helpful with the elimination of harmful heavy metals from your blood stream.
JUICING FOR A HEALTHIER BODY!
If you are new to juicing try the Apple, Carrot, Ginger and Spinach. These smoothies are very tasty and a good place to start if you have never tried juicing. There are endless possibilities here so have fun with it!
APPLE, CARROT, GINGER AND SPINACH SMOOTHIE
This can be made in any basic fruit & vegetable juicer. Blend together:
- 8 Medium Carrots
- 2 Apples (I prefer Royal Gala or Braeburn)
- Slice of root Ginger (to taste)
- 1 head of spinach
Don’t try to find a shortcut that will leave you feeling restless and unsatisfied. Know that you must keep working hard and diligently to experience what is seemingly no progress. As time goes on you will spend more time on the plateau then on the rise. But if you put enough thought, labor, love, and diligent work you are guaranteed to experience the epiphanies that are staggered between your plateaus insuring your success!
