Detox your Life
Where Do Toxins Come From?
Your body is exposed to toxins on a daily basis, which have the potential to damage cells and contribute to ageing and disease. While some toxins are naturally produced in your body, you are also exposed through dietary and environmental influences, such as alcohol consumption, smoking, chemical exposure and pollution. If you are a hairdresser, plumber, builder, mine worker or work near or on roads, your risk for toxin exposure is increased and makes detoxification even more important. Nevertheless, everyone can benefit from a detox.
Toxins…A Balancing Act While toxin exposure cannot be avoided, it is possible to improve your ability to cope with and eradicate toxins efficiently.
By completing a detox, you effectively reduce your toxin burden by decreasing your level of exposure to various toxins. You will also improve your ability to process and eliminate toxins from your body (known as toxin resistance) for improved health…so what are you waiting for?!

Key ingredients to enhance your detox.
The following ingredients are essential to any successful detox program: Spirulina: supports detoxification thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant actions. It’s particularly useful in assisting the removal of heavy metals from the body. Milk thistle: reduces the impact of toxins on the liver. Cape jasmine: protects the liver from damage caused by toxin exposure and aids in elimination of toxins. Amino acids (from rice protein): bind to toxins and facilitate their removal.
Detox Your Diet An essential aspect of any detox program is implementing a detox friendly, healthy diet. This should be predominantly plant-based, with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, legumes, spices, nuts, seeds and whole grains. It is also important to stay hydrated by drinking 2 to 3 litres of water daily and avoiding sources of toxin exposure including alcohol, caffeine and processed foods.
Detox Your Home and Lifestyle During a detox is the perfect time to give your home a spring clean too! This can be achieved by opting for natural cleaning products and selecting more natural skincare products, avoiding chemical ingredients that can be absorbed through the lungs and skin.
Other detox tips include: Keep moving! Aim for 30 to 40 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic exercise three or four times a week, plus one or two strength training sessions. Dry skin brushing before your shower for 5 to10 minutes each day can aid toxin elimination via the skin. Reduce toxic emotions and stress by reading positive affirmations that inspire you to fight off negative thoughts.
