If you're like us, you might be feeling a little off after all of the 4th of July festivities. This
holiday, especially, is known for delicious food and refreshing drinks. It is good to indulge
occasionally, but it's sometimes hard to get back on track.
Why is detoxing important?
Beyond holiday celebrations, our modern world, while amazing in so many ways, has produced a host of environmental stressors. Some examples include environmental toxins (pollution), processed foods with harmful additives, trans fats, and artificial colors/flavors. A lesser thought-form of toxins can include using cosmetics with hormone disruptors such as parabens, phthalates, etc.
These stressors can make you feel tired, have low energy, experience brain fog, and may make you more prone to illness. Yes, it’s concerning, but there's no need to panic! Our bodies are naturally equipped with detox processes that do a fantastic job of clearing out toxins on their own. However, our bodies can benefit from some help to allow them to detox and cleanse more efficiently. Plus, as we age our natural detox pathways can get overburdened and you won’t feel as energetic, healthy, and optimized as you should.
So how can I detox?
During this time, water is going to be your best friend. It helps flush the toxins out of your system. If drinking a lot of water is hard for you, try adding some fresh lemon. This gives it a great flavor, and lemon has detoxing elements as well! Lemons help convert toxins into a water-soluble form allowing unwanted substances to be flushed out of your body.
For those who need more flavor, green tea is an excellent alternative or additive. The antioxidants in green tea can detoxify the body of accumulated toxins, providing positive health benefits. Antioxidants help prevent or stop cell damage within the body by reducing the amount of reactive oxygen that can cause medical problems.
There are a bunch of different healthy foods that help you detox, but exercise is also going to be key. Try to get your heart rate up and sweat all those toxins out! And don't forget that our product, Potion No. 2 I Love Myself is a great addition to your detox routine, thanks to its key ingredient, Setria Glutathione. Just take one capsule in the morning, and along with your lifestyle changes, you'll be seeing results in no time!
