The many health benefits of Detox Drinks include:
1. Removing Toxins from the Body
Every day we are exposed to environmental pollutants, preservatives, heavy metals, pesticides and cancer-causing chemicals. We inhale, ingest or come into contact with these toxins and they get stored in the tissues and cells throughout our bodies. This affects immune system function, our mood, metabolism and our ability to fight disease. Detox drinks help us to avoid toxic overload before it becomes a major health problem.
2. Reducing Inflammation
By cleansing the liver and giving the digestive system a chance to rest, disease causing inflammation within the body will be reduced. Some detox drink ingredients, like watermelon, cucumber, strawberries and ginger help to reduce inflammation while easing your digestive system.
3. Aiding Weight Loss
Detox drinks boost metabolism and energy levels, leaving you feeling fresh and light throughout the day. Grapefruit for example, contains special enzymes that help the body to utilise sugar, thereby boosting the metabolism and aiding weight loss.
4. Promoting Skin Health
By eliminating toxins from the body and reducing inflammation, detox drinks boost skin health and minimise the signs of ageing. When the skin becomes clogged with pollutants and chemicals, it leads to wrinkles, dryness and other signs of ageing.
5. Boosting Energy & Mental Alertness
The ingredients of any detox drink will work together to reduce Inflammation, cleanse the liver and boost energy levels naturally. Without the toxin overload weighing you down, you will feel lighter and refreshed as opposed to living with fatigue, mood swings and brain fog.
It’s pretty clear it’s worth taking the time to do a Spring detox when it can bring so many health benefits and improve how we operate on so many levels.
