How to Help Your Body Cleanse, Naturally

For the past decade or so, commercial cleansing has been all the rage. Whether it’s juicing, drinking nothing but cayenne and lemon juice, fasting, or actually taking a cleanse kit, we all seem to think that cleansing our bodies would be beneficial.

But our bodies are built to clean themselves—we cleanse everyday in ways we don’t usually think about. Our kidneys and liver flush toxins, we sweat out unwanted fluids, and our bowels excrete excess and unneeded food in the form of liquid and solid waste.

If we want to help our bodies cleanse further, here are a few ways to ensure optimum cleansing function, naturally:

Drink Plenty of Fluids

Especially filtered water. Why? Because the water that comes from our kitchen taps is often over-treated and contains too many chemicals. You can use a filter on your tap for an added layer of protection, which will assist the kidneys in their detoxification efforts.

Sweat, Baby, Sweat

(And as often as possible.) Your skin is a major toxin elimination organ, and sweating is the easiest way to purge unwanted substances from our bodies.

Focus on Daily Elimination

Having a bowel movement every day is imperative to your body’s natural cleansing process. Try incorporating NutraCleanse™ into your diet, to assist in increased digestive health. Flax seed is the main ingredient in our product, which is super high in healthy fibre and omega fatty acids. The fibre in NutraCleanse™ can help to ensure regular elimination—which is essential to cleansing your body of unwanted toxins, properly.

Be as Lean as Possible

Fat-soluble toxins reside in fat cells. Therefore, the less body fat you have, the less room there is for chemicals to hang out.

Wash Your Produce

Fruits and vegetables are likely the most important ingredient to maintaining a healthy body, but are often sprayed and treated with herbicides and pesticides—chemicals that are harmful to our bodies and hard to eliminate. So be sure to wash your produce well!

If you’re unsure as to which fruits and vegetables are sprayed with the most chemicals, see David Suzuki’s Dirty Dozen list HERE.

Get Outside

Maximize your time in the sun! Vitamin D is incredibly important to overall health, so breathe in as much high-quality air as possible.

By doing the things we recommend above, you can assist your body in its natural toxin elimination efforts, which will ensure optimum cleansing.

 

 

Spring Clean Your Digestive System

Spring has officially arrived, which has us all up in a serious cleaning frenzy! There’s something about the longer daylight hours and new life growing from the earth that triggers a desire to give everything a good polishing and re-organization; hence the expression ‘spring clean.’

From around the house to the yard, and perhaps—most importantly—within our own bodies, we’re on a mission to clean up!

It’s simple enough to pick up a broom and mop, sort a few boxes, and get rid of junk around the house you no longer have any use for. But initiating a good clean within our bodies might seem a little more daunting!

Essentially, the best way to begin a good spring clean is by focusing on polishing up your digestive system. In the spirit of March being Colon Cancer Awareness Month, we think these tips are quite fitting:

More Fibre

NutraCleanse™ can help add more fibre to your diet. Our product is made of primarily flax seed, which is the ultimate fiber superhero. In addition to flax, NutraCleanse™ also contains psyllium husk, which is also a great cleanse ingredient.

By adding NutraCleanse™ to your existing diet, you can turn almost all your favourite foods into high-fiber superstars. Check out this blog post, where we list our other favourite high-fibre foods for cleansing.

More Water

The best way to spring clean your digestive system is by drinking more water. Make a conscious effort to drink at least 2-3 litres of water a day to assist your body to flush out toxins and keep your colon lubricated and functioning smoothly.

Aside from water, fresh pressed juices are also a great way to clean your digestive system. These aren’t for everyone though, so do your research and understand what might work best for you, first.

More Rest, Less Stress

Good digestive health includes managing stress and getting proper rest. Making certain lifestyle changes aren’t always easy to do, as it may be dependent on your job or where you live. However, identifying anxiety-provoking stressors like certain foods, people, or sleep deprivation, and learning to manage them differently, is a big start.

Think about that yucky feeling in your gut when you are tired and stressed. That is your digestive system taking the brunt of it!

Better Exercise

Exercise and staying active goes hand in hand with improving the function of your digestive system. Simply heading outside to go for a walk every day for a minimum of 30 minutes will make a huge difference in how your body absorbs and processes the foods you eat.

Another bonus: you are more likely to manage a healthy body weight through regular exercise and feel more motivated to eat a regular healthy diet to keep excess weight off.

So go for it—take Spring on like a champ and get cleaning! Your house and your health will thank you. Learn where you can pick up a bag of NutraCleanse™ to add to your diet for even better digestive health benefits.

5 Ways to Detox Your Body, Naturally

It might be the end of January, but that doesn’t mean we’re ready to stop with the health streak. By now, most of us have cut down on alcohol and refined sugar (something we get way too much of during the holidays), and stepped up our exercise regime.

So what next? How about a detox?!

The next logical step to your New Year wellness plan is to detox. There are many ways to accomplish this, and we’ll outline some here. Check out these 5 ways to detox your body, naturally:

Drink More Water

Increasing your water intake is the number one way help your body detox. And? It’s free! This is what consuming more water will do for your body:
• Help release stored fluid, thereby decreasing puffiness.
• Clear the lymphatic system and assist in better blood circulation.
• Assist in better bowel movements, which helps detox the colon.
• Help your skin (your largest organ!) clean itself from the inside out, which clears up acne.
• Fills your stomach, which helps you to feel satiated longer between meals (ultimately assisting your digestive system in taking a load off).

Start Juicing

Juicing fruit and vegetables is a great way to get loads of antioxidants and vitamins into your body very quickly. Juicing also helps your body detox, by:
• Flooding your body with nutrients it desperately needs.
• Assisting in better quality bowel movements (again, good for the colon).
• Increases the amount of liquids entering your body, which helps to decease puffiness and flush out your urinary tract and digestive system (which both can harbor E. coli).

Add NutraCleanse™

Adding NutraCleanse™ to your smoothies, oatmeal, baking, and whatever else you can manage will greatly help with the detoxification of your colon. Here’s why:
• NutraCleanse™ is comprised of over 90% flax seed, whose fibre helps to sweep the colon clean.
• Flax has also been shown to decrease blood pressure and blood sugar, which takes the pressure off various organs.

Use a Dry Skin Brush

If you’ve never used a dry skin brush, we think you’re missing out. By slowly and rhythmically brushing your skin from top to bottom in long, meticulous strokes, you accomplish the following:
• Detox the skin by removing dead skin cells, which allows your skin to breathe and glow.
• Awaken the lymphatic system by encouraging drainage of excess fluids (this is why you work from top to bottom), and stimulate the nervous system.

Sweat. Like, A LOT.

You might already be doing this, but if you’re not, get on board. Here’s why:
• Sweating detoxes the skin.
• The exercise you do to become sweaty increases circulation and moves excess fluids from the body.
• Your organs are being worked extra hard during a sweat session; this helps them to do their jobs better, and ultimately eliminate accumulated trash.

So board the New Year detox train, and remember, our suggestions are natural, non-harmful detox solutions. They’re all safe, effective, and inexpensive. And if you haven’t tried NutraCleanse™ yet, you’re definitely in for a treat.

Good luck, and enjoy!
