GO GREEN, HIT RESET.
WHAT'S A DETOX?
Detoxification is our body's natural way of changing, neutralizing or getting rid of toxins. Toxins are harmful substances we inevitably come across in our everyday lives (air/ water pollutants, pesticides, processed foods, alcohol, cigs, pharamaceuticals etc.)
Although our bodies are constantly working to take care of us, the load of toxins we ingest these days have gotten greater.
A detox, like the one in the next section, is a regimen which SUPPORTS and ASSISTS your body in carrying out this process- which consists of two phases:
Phase one: Your body neutralizes the bad stuff and where antioxidants such as glutathione and vitamins C & E are crucial. This is where our berry exotic blend comes in.
Phase two: Your body adds certain chemicals to the bad stuff to make it soluble, in hopes of excreting it. This is where glutamine, glycine and sulphur rich foods come in handy. Plenty of which can be found in our green blend.
And there you have it. You now know how your body naturally detoxifies and how our green blend and berry exotic blends were designed to support your body through this process and maintain overall health.
It's a great way to reset your body- the first step towards a healthy lifestyle. Our blends ASSIST your body in the processes needed to eliminate toxins and restore a healthy balance. You will feel less bloated, energized and actually start craving healthier foods!
SIGNS YOU NEED TO DETOX
A detox is a great way to simply give your body a break once in a while. Or it could be a great way to kickstart a healthier lifestyle or a diet. A detox can bring numerous health benefits to anyone, regardless of what their end goal is. However, there are a few clues that your body might be giving you to tell you it's time for a change.
A few of those key signs are:
○ Abdominal Bloating
○ Clogged Sinuses
○ Constant Cravings
○ Resistance to Weight Loss
○ Hormonal Moodiness
○ Poor Skin
○ Increased sensitivity to Alcohol
○ Poor Immune System Function
If you feel like you can relate to or experience atleast 3 of those signs- It might be time for a change! Time to hit reset, give your poor liver a break and fuel your body with the right stuff.
HOW DOES A DETOX WORK?
Since a detox is all about giving your body a break to heal itself, it can be considered fairly restrictive. But good news is that it's only for a short 3-5 day period.
Each day will consist of the following :
○ Start your day off with a smoothie that includes 1-2 tsp of our green blend
○ A lunch where you try to incorporate as many fresh whole foods (Brown rice, Quinoa, Mixed greens salads with natural dressings)
○ End your day with a smoothie that includes 1-2 tsp of our berry exotic blend
After this intense yet rewarding period, you can ease into healthier regular eating habits using the meal ideas, recipes and planner found in our guide included with our superfood detox bundle.
Things to remember:
○ Try your best to AVOID snacking during this period, as a detox is all about giving your body a break from digesting, as it tries to heal itself naturally
○ Always stay hydrated!
○ Light Exercise: Walks, Yoga, Run or Light weights
(Remember to listen to your body and stay within your limits)
○ Practicing Mindfulness: Meditation, Gratitude, Positive Affirmation.
Basically be aware, don't Stress, be nice.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Everyone's body is different, so results can vary. But most often, friends, family and our customers experience feeling less bloated, an increase in energy levels, glowing skin, better mood, better sleep, healthier weight, fewer sugar cravings and most importantly, a will to eat healthier!
We recommend doing a detox anywhere between 2-4 times a year, usually around the same time as the season changes. This is to ensure that your body doesn't end up depleting itself of nutrients in the process of getting rid of toxins.
After the detox, we believe the key is to follow a diet that you can stick to and one that consists of many different whole foods, as possible. Smoothies made using a Smoov Blend make a fantastic addition to a healthy diet as they are natural, nutrient-rich and most importantly convenient to make anywhere.
