I hope this year is your best yet! Unfortunately when this time of year rolls around instead of raring to go, many of us just feel like a detox.
While ‘Detoxification’ or ‘detox’ generally refers to the removal of a phamocological toxin in cases of drug abuse. The term quickly got stretched into a way to target belly fat, a quick way to lose weight or to jump-start a healthy lifestyle.
A detox agrees with our psyche, we all want to remove the pain and guilt of what we’ve been doing. “Buy this product.....” and you are taking action, regaining control of the situation - we all like that feeling.
The ‘toxins’ (xenobiotics) that build up in cells are in fact self-inflicted (you knew that didn’t you).
Mostly from chronic over consumption of sugar, carbohydrate-rich foods and alcohol (you also knew that didn’t you!) Removal of these xenobiotics requires metabolic breakdown driven by enzymes in every cell of our bodies.
According to the research on detoxing, the way to increase the activity of the natural cellular enzymes that detox the body is via the consumption of plant foods.
The best dextoxing foods
In particular, rich green, yellow, reds and orange vegetables, legumes and fruits are shown in research to boost natural detoxing cellular pathways & processes. Read more in our Report, The Clear Science of Detoxing.
