New Year, New Detox
Brace yourselves…quick fix New Year’s detoxes and cleanses are coming. As you are making your new years resolutions don’t fall for the quick fix promise of a 3 day juice cleanse.
Have you heard of the all natural, guaranteed to work cleanse? It’s called your liver! Yep, no need for expensive juicing plans (they can run up to $75 per day!). You have the power to treat your liver right so you can naturally detox without feeding your body copious amount of fructose aka juicing.
The liver sifts through everything that comes into your body, uses what it can, and then gets rid of (detoxes) what it doesn’t need. It detoxifies your blood, produces bile to break down fat, helps rid of excess hormones, and stores important vitamins and minerals. Your liver is arguably one of your hardest working organs!
So how can you support your liver?
Break up with sugar. Added sugars, processed foods, alcohol- these all mess with your blood glucose and create that “crash” feeling. Cut those out and focus on fueling your body with delicious whole foods that give you sustaining energy.
Eat your veggies. Reach for those cruciferous veggies like brussel sprouts and collards. These have high amounts of vitamin C, A, and sulfur all of which aid the liver in detoxification.
Try some herbal teas like dandelion root. Dandelion root naturally supports the liver.
Eat the highest quality foods possible. Highly recommended to buy organic since processed meats and produce can contain pesticides that put more work on the liver. Choose real, whole foods that are naturally made and provide nutrients and energy for your body.
Get off the juice! Instead create healthy habits that support your liver in this upcoming New Year!
