4 Surprising Benefits of Detoxing
If you're like anything like most of us, living in this increasingly toxic world, then it’s probably a good idea to do a detox about twice a year. Doing a detox is like hitting a reset button for your body. It will cleanse you of all accumulated toxins, relieve your liver and revitalise you. We all know about improved digestion and health, but what are some of the less talked about benefits of detoxing?
1. Stress control
Alcohol, sugar and caffeine contribute to adrenal fatigue. By following a detox diet high in foods that keep sugar levels stable, you will help regulate your stress hormone (cortisol) levels and give your adrenal glands a much-needed break, as well as your liver (high cortisol levels have been linked to fatty liver disease!). So by detoxing you are actually managing stress and stress damage on a chemical level! You will feel the benefits in both, body and mind.
2. Food cravings go away
When your digestion is less than optimal, your body isn’t absorbing the right amount of nutrients. This causes your body to think it’s hungry, even when it’s not; cravings are actually your body telling you it’s low on a key nutrient. By improving your digestion and nutrient absorption, you are giving your body what it needs, it can finally relax – the cravings for unhealthy foods go away!
3. Increased energy throughout the day
A detox diet might cause some tiredness, at first (especially if you were taking in a lot of toxins before), but later on, many people find that their energy levels go up (and stay there). Since your digestion is improved and you’re taking in food that’s rich in nutrients, you’re optimising all your systems, leaving you feeling refreshed and energised!
4. Boosted Weight Loss
A body cleanse helps boost your weight loss. But how, you ask? When your body has loads of toxins coursing through, your liver gets overwhelmed and starts storing them away – it does that by encasing them in fatty tissue. By detoxing, you are helping your liver: with fewer toxins around, it can really go to work, breaking up fat reserves. Combine that with healthier food choices and the stubborn pounds you thought would never go away, start disappearing!
