Become a Lean, Mean, Clean Machine
While many of us think of detoxing and cleansing as restrictive routines we may undertake once in a while to “reset,” our bodies actually cleanse and detox 24/7. Eating whole foods and superfoods rich in fiber, antioxidants, chlorophyll and spirulina is a surefire way to ready your detoxification system to do its best each day.
Fiber is a complex carbohydrate that our bodies cannot digest, which is what makes it so helpful in supporting your detox efforts. Not only does fiber in food help us feel fuller longer, it also sweeps up toxins as it moves through our digestive systems and helps our bodies eliminate that waste. Found exclusively in plants, fiber is abundant in Baobab powder.
Antioxidants are fighters: they take on unstable molecules in our bodies, helping protect our tissues and cells. In the simplest terms, antioxidants detoxify our bodies from these harmful molecules. Superfoods have some of the highest concentrations of antioxidants in any known food and can be easily (and deliciously) obtained from many of our superfoods.
Chlorophyll, the molecule that makes plants green, is a cleansing champion. It neutralizes toxins and free radicals and helps to flush heavy metals, such as mercury, out of the body. The potent nutrients in chlorophyll also support healthy liver function and build oxygen-rich blood, which are both paramount in detoxification processes.
