If you're feeling a bit lethargic, having difficulty concentrating, and have an overall 'heavy' sensation in your body and your mind, a morning detox is a sure-fire way to lighten up.
Even just one simple morning detox-flush can do wonders for digestion & elimination, and feed your body the nutrient-rich foods it's most likely craving. Nanogreens vegetable & fruit superfood contains the top 10 food for detoxifying your body through healthy, plant-based nutrition. No need for a fast.. nature provides everything the body needs to naturally cleanse and rid the body of harmful toxins that weigh you down. Below are 10 detoxifying superstars, all found in a single scoop of nanogreens superfood:
Beets are awesome. They are full of nutrients and are a great source of vitamins B3, B6, and C, plus beta-carotene, magnesium, calcium, zinc, and iron. They assist our liver and gall bladder in breaking down toxins, and their fiber is great for digestion and elimination.
Lemons jump-start digestion by stimulating the release of enzymes and Vitamin C helps convert toxins into a water-soluble form that can be easily eliminated from the body. Lemons also help stimulate the liver and purify our blood.
Apples give our bodies lots of fiber and nutrients and help stimulate bile production, which the liver uses to release toxins. The soluble fiber in apples, pectin, is helpful in removing heavy metals and food additives from our bodies. Be sure to eat only organic apples, as conventional apples are some of the most heavily-sprayed foods around.
4. Leafy Greens
What we want from green veggies is chlorophyll. Chlorophyll rids the body of environmental toxins, heavy metals, herbicides, and pesticides. Aiding in detox, increasing oxygen content, and purifying the blood, greens are the essential building blocks of any healthy and vibrant diet. Nanogreens includes the nutrient-dense plant protein Spirulina, which contains a powerful blend of vitamins and minerals that boost energy, remove toxins and could even ward off serious health problems like cancer.
5. Sea Greens
Sea veggies have antioxidants that help alkalize the blood and strengthen our digestive tract. The alginic acid in sea veggies absorbs toxins from this digestive tract. They also have the broadest range of minerals you can find in any food!
Broccoli contains important phytochemicals that aid in the detox process. These phytochemicals stimulate detoxification enzymes in the digestive tract. They, too are extremely high in antioxidants!
7. Green Tea
Speaking of, you should all know by now that green tea is a great big source of antioxidants, one of which are catechins. Catechins increase liver function, which we want. Plus, drinking green tea aids us in hydrating our bodies.
Artichokes increase bile production and both purify and protect the liver. They also have a mild diuretic effect on the kidneys, which aides in toxin removal once the liver breaks them down. Some studies have shown that artichokes may actually regenerate liver tissues (It is seriously all about the liver!). They are also super duper high in fiber, which, as we know, helps us with elimination.
Parsley is extremely rich in a wide number of nutrients, chlorophyll, and carotenes. It has been used for treating urinary tract infections, kidney stones, various gastrointestinal disorders, osteoarthritis, and anemia, among other conditions.
The king of the cruciferous vegetables, cabbage is full of fiber, which is good for our digestion and helps feed our gut bacteria. They are also celebrated for their anti-cancer benefits, as they contain more phytochemicals with anti-cancer properties than any other vegetable. These phytochemicals both increase the antioxidant defense mechanism in the body and help with detoxification of chemicals and hormones.
So the only question is: If you can get all of these amazing detoxifying foods from one single source, feel lighter, healthier and more vibrant.. why wouldn't you? The nanogreens superfood solution starts here www.nanogreens.com.
