Our bodies and minds are going through a tough time as we struggle through the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the body is designed to eliminate toxins, environmental pollutants, additive-laden foods and increased stress can put a downer on its detoxing abilities. Luckily, there is a lot you can do to give your body a helping hand to get rid of the blues and boost your health and happiness!

The practice of detoxification is based on a few key principles:

  • Allowing your organs to rest through fasting (you can try fasting for a day or two before starting your detox)
  • Supporting the liver and kidneys (your natural detoxifiers)
  • Loading up on healthy nutrients!

Not really sure where (or how) to start, especially during lockdown? These simple tips will kickstart a healthy detox…

Fill up on fibre

Fibre is super important in ensuring proper digestive functionality. Load up on brown rice and fresh fruit and veggies — beetroot, cabbage, broccoli, artichoke, spirulina and chlorella are all great detoxifiers.

Our recommendation: Spirulina Powder

Heal with herbs

Your liver works extremely hard — it holds about 13% of your body’s blood at any one time, and is fundamental for eliminating toxins. Give it a helping hand by drinking green tea and taking herbal supplements.

Our recommendation: Milk Thistle Extract

Sweat it out

Help your body to eliminate toxins through your skin by breaking a sweat! A great way to lower stress and toxin levels is to practice yoga or qigong. Or, for an at-home spa experience, create a sauna in your bathroom by closing all doors and windows and running a hot shower. Just be sure to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water or, better yet, any healthy drink high in electrolytes.

We recommend: BCAA Gluta-Hydrate
