Detoxing your body, exercising and eating ‘clean and lean’ are the best ways to manage your weight, rejuvenate your body and improve your overall health and wellbeing.
Cleanse your body naturally
Your body is a complex machine and it takes a lot of hard work and discipline to keep it running as it should. Eating well, exercising and making positive lifestyle choices all go a long way to keeping things working as they should.
But even if you have the healthiest of lifestyles, sometimes, you need to give your body a helping hand to help it cleanse itself and rejuvenate.
Cleaning up your diet and detoxing your body naturally can help improve your health and support your weight management goals. It can also help your body flush its system and get rid of all the toxins that stand in the way of better overall wellness.
What is a detox?
Detoxification is a process which helps your body to flush away all the toxins and other harmful substances it has taken in from food and the environment. Eating healthy, natural foods, drinking plenty of water and taking herbal food supplements are just some of the ways that you can help your body detox itself.
Your liver plays a key role in the detoxification process. It works 24-hours a day to produce enzymes and hormones, filter and store nutrients and process toxins and other digestive by-products, before filtering them out of your system.
In a healthy liver, daily detoxification occurs naturally, but if your body is overloaded with toxins, it can impair your liver’s natural function.
Long-term, this can have several health implications including increased inflammation and the risk of chronic disease.
How do I detox?
There are several things you can do to help your body to cleanse itself and detox. Eating a diet that’s rich in lean proteins, fibre, complex carbohydrates and fresh fruit and vegetables is a good place to start. Avoiding processed foods, smoking and alcohol will also help, as will drinking plenty of water.
Cutting excess sugar and fat out of your diet will also help to reduce the stress placed on your liver. Lily & Loaf’s range of natural, nutritional supplements for adults are a good way of complementing your detoxing efforts.
They can help you to cleanse your body and eliminate toxins naturally, to ensure your body’s vital organs are functioning properly, and enhance your overall health and wellbeing.
