Detoxification is a trending word in health and wellnessindustry. Each and everyone of us should be embarking on a detox plan every few months, as our digestive systems are constantly exposed to a number of undesirable ingredients, like food preservatives, excess sugars and artificial flavor enhancers. So what is a detox really?  Simply put, it is the process of removing toxinsfrom the body. Think of a detox plan as a mini-vacation for your body, giving it a break from having to process harmful and unnatural ingredients.

To maintain optimum health and to kick-start an effective weight loss plan, a detox should be included in your lifestyle.  Experts recommend that you follow a detox plan two-four times a year.

Once you have committed to starting a detox program, you will need to determine what foods and drinks are to be eliminated from your diet, and which should be increased and/or included for the duration of your detox.  There are a number of various detox plans and programs available. Mostly, detox programs will be based on consuming fruit and vegetables in a liquid form for three to seven days, followed by a period of clean eating. Real fruit and vegetable smoothies are the perfect addition to a detox plan- as they will keep you hydrated, satisfied, and ensure you are getting your daily intake of vitamins and minerals.

Now, let’s take a closer look at the multiple benefits that you will enjoy, when including smoothies as part of your detoxification plan.

  • Smoothies will help tominimize and eliminate the intake of toxins common in food - such as chemical preservatives, food colourants and flavour enhancers: On a daily basis we are unknowingly exposed to many artificial chemicals added to our food. These are difficult for the body to breakdown as they are not natural ingredients.  A build-up of these toxins, can cause fatigue, headaches, and even lower your immunity. Drinking healthy beverages, like real fruit and vegetable smoothies will reduce and even reverse the effects harmful ingredients can have on your body.

 

  • Sustained energy levels throughout the day – The natural nutrients found in real fruit and vegetable smoothies, allow our bodies to easily absorb the valuable vitamins and minerals. Along with providing a good source of hydration, the nutrient content in natural juices and smoothies will contribute to sustained energy throughout the day. By staying hydrated and getting your daily dose of vitamins and minerals you will prevent the occurrence of frequent headaches, anxiety, mood disorders and cognitive performance.

 

  • Helps controlling the cravings – Food cravings can be caused by a number of different factors.  Common causes include: a lack of certain vitamins and minerals, emotional factors, such as comfort eating, and low blood sugar levels. Food cravings can significantly impact eating habits and may result in unnecessary weight gain. Natural smoothies can help to keep these cravings at bay, by offering a delicious and healthy pick-me-up.  The natural sugars will boost blood sugar levels and provide sustained energy, whilst the vitamin and mineral content will contribute to your body’s daily requirements.

 

Detoxing as part of Stress Management – Cortisol is a hormone produced by our bodies during times of stress.  When Cortisol levels are heightened for prolonged periods of time, it can negatively affect our bodies.  Weight gain, fatigue and depression are common symptoms of excess Cortisol production.  By starting a detox program, your body’s internal functions will be rebalanced. So start sipping a delicious and natural smoothie to beat stress and give your body the break it deserves.

If you are embarking on a proper detox diet it will offer you multiple health benefits.  By including natural fruit and vegetable smoothies into your detox plan, you will enjoy variety of flavors, convenient and easy to make and you can be sure that you are giving your body a quality source of vital nutrients.
