The body goes through a natural detoxification process for optimal organ function and to eliminate toxins from things like air pollutants and processed foods. You can do many things to assist your body in a detox, from staying away from excess processed foods and getting enough sleep so your body has plenty of time to rejuvenate. Here are a few more natural ways to detox your body:
1. Drink a lot of water and take supplements.
Drinking lots of water helps to flush toxins out of your body, especially promoting kidney and liver detoxification and function. An important thing to note– it’s necessary to drink only purified water in order to avoid adding more toxins to your body. Now let’s talk about supplements. Many detox support supplements will assist you in a total gut reset. Detox Support specifically targets liver detoxification and contains natural ingredients that increase cellular defense and regulates the detoxing process. Gluta Repair & Restore promotes healthy gastrointestinal lining so that antigens and toxins cannot cross into the bloodstream. Pure Biotic Cleanse delivers a rapid GI and immune system reset, and IgG Defense contains colostrum which provides vital healing and strengthens the gut-immune barrier from unwanted organisms.
2. Add a probiotic to your diet.
Probiotics are living organisms essential for gut health and the body’s natural detox process. While you can get prebiotics and probiotics from some foods like yogurt and kimchi, it can also be beneficial to add a probiotic to your diet. Ther-Biotic Detoxification Support is a powerful supplement that supports the intestinal barrier and aids in detoxification. Other supplements that provide detox support include the Cleanse & Detox Herbal Tea with clarifying herbs Rooibos, Burdock Root, and Licorice Root. Finally, Dual Detox contains enzymes that help protect the body from exposure to unhealthy chemicals by reducing their absorption in the GI tract.
3. Stay active and sweat.
One of the simplest ways to detox your body is to sweat. Physical activity that results in regular sweating is one of the body’s most natural methods of eliminating toxins. Being active also aids in immune health and mental well-being while also reducing stress and lowering the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Another component that links healthy activity to a full-body detox is the reduction in inflammation. Exercise reduces unnecessary inflammation in the body, allowing it to function better and detox efficiently. Brisk walking 150 to 300 minutes a week is a good place to start, but whatever you can do to stay active will certainly help!
4. Limit salt, sugar, and alcohol intake.
Salt, sugar, and alcohol can hinder your body’s natural detox process when consumed often and in large amounts, causing water retention, higher risks of obesity and diabetes, as well as inflammation and damaged liver function. You can counteract the bloating of too much salt by drinking lots of water. Also, potassium helps to counterbalance the effects of sodium, so think about adding foods like kidney beans, spinach, and bananas to your plate. Instead of consuming processed foods, soda, and energy drinks, which are high in sugar, consider swapping fruit, veggies, and more protein-filled snacks such as nuts, vegetables with hummus, or cottage cheese. An easy way to get your daily fruits and veggies in while also enjoying something sweet is by making a simple smoothie! Lastly, enjoy a beer or glass of wine with dinner or order a cocktail when out with friends, but just remember that overdrinking can lead to fat buildup, liver damage, and inflammation, prohibiting your body’s detoxification.
