Article 1 of 4: Detoxing
This is the first in a series of articles that we will be running each week about the subject of detoxing. As it’s a subject that we are passionate about and the fact that we have recently launched our Bestow Beauty detox powder supplement, we felt it was fitting to pass on some of our detoxing knowledge.
Mother Nature has provided our bodies with a very efficient detox system, naturally eliminating toxins and metabolic waste primarily through the liver, bowel, kidneys and skin. Our bodies spend a considerable amount of time and energy on this process, with the majority of all the chemical processes in our body involved in one form of detoxification or another. Essentially we have a very efficient cleansing system and if we eat healthy diets and drink enough water, we should detox naturally everyday.
However, this isn’t always possible, so a ‘cleanse’ from time to time will give your liver a chance to detoxify and renew itself, channelling energy into revitalizing the body. Many people report benefits such as clearer skin, increased energy and concentration, weight loss, improved digestion and much more.
For an effective detox, however, it’s important to not only reduce the intake of substances that tax the liver (i.e. alcohol, coffee, sugars, wheat, trans fats and processed foods), but also to maximise the supply of nutrients needed to optimize your liver’s detoxification pathways.
