NOTES:

The health benefits of a natural detox:

  • CLEANS THE LIVER: With a detox cure, the toxins are removed from the body, namely the liver is cleansed. The toxins stored in tissues and cells affect the immune system, our mood, metabolism and our ability to fight disease.

  • INCREASES ENERGY AND MENTAL ALERTNESS: A life without toxin overload reduces fatigue and mood swings. It also increases your energy level so that you are more alert and fitter. Ingredients such as lemon, rosemary and mint will rejuvenate the body and can improve mental alertness. Furthermore, these powerful foods also help with hydration after exercise or a busy day.

  • SUPPORTS DIGESTION: The digestive system gets a chance to rest because the body does not receive heavy meals.

  • REDUCES INFLAMMATIONS: A number of ingredients reduce inflammation and swelling in the body. Watermelon, cucumber, strawberries and ginger are among these beneficial ingredients and they also ease digestion.

  • PROMOTES HEALTHY SKIN: By removing toxins, you get a more beautiful skin. Daily exposure to toxins and chemicals clogs your skin. This causes wrinkles, dryness and other signs. You will improve this through a detox and will minimize signs of aging making you look younger.

The combination of a healthy diet, exercise, fresh air and adequate sleep is fundamental for a complete detox and for a transition to a healthier lifestyle.
