Kids Love NutraCleanse™!

Friends, 44% of people who use NutraCleanse™ are between the ages of 25 and 44. That means that there are a lot of adults out there who love our product. Why not give it to your kids, too?!

NutraCleanse™ is made with whole ingredients, and is mainly comprised of flax seed, which makes it a safe food to give to children.

Why Kids Should Eat It

Why give NutraCleanse™ to your children? Because chances are, they don’t consume enough fibre. The flax component in our product ensures that your little ones will get the fibre they need, without resorting to over-the-counter alternatives.

Extra fibre can relieve constipation, help create a healthier digestive system, and assist in lowering blood sugar.

How Kids Should Eat It

Three popular ways to sneak NutraCleanse™ into your child’s diet are:

-In a smoothie

-In oatmeal

-In baking

Some people have even told us that they mix it with Nutella and spread it on their child’s toast for breakfast! Get creative, and let your kids reap the rewards.

Want Better Digestive Health?

We all suffer from tummy troubles from time to time, but what happens when they become the new normal?

Having chronic digestive problems is a definite red flag that something is very wrong, and it shouldn’t be ignored. Your gut is like your second brain, and many of your everyday functions and processes are affected by how healthy it is–or isn’t.

Here are 10 ideas to help you improve your digestive health:

Quality Over Quantity

Quality food is imperative for good digestive health. We’re talking about food that comes from nature, like fruits and vegetables, legumes, beans, nuts, and whole grains.

(Not packaged foods, or foods that are high in added sugar, filler, or preservatives.)

Chew Your Food Better

This might sound silly, but we live in a country full of busy people. Our culture doesn’t place emphasis on relaxation and rest, and we eat the way we live.

(Fast.)

By not chewing your food well and taking the time to eat properly, our digestive system pays a steep price. So slow down, enjoy your food, and let your tummy work the way it’s supposed to.

Drink Lots of Water

We know you know this, but honestly? None of us heed the advice very well. But by creating a chronically dehydrated state within our bodies, we force our digestive system to try and process what it needs to, without the right tools.

To properly digest food, our stomach and intestines need to have a certain level of lubrication and liquid, and that comes from water.

Incorporate Probiotics

Because these suckers work. By routinely feeding yourself stuff that your body doesn’t like, you build an irregular balance of good-to-bad bacteria in your gut. To get that balance back to normal, probiotics are necessary.

Basically, you’re swallowing live bacteria that will go down your throat and into your tummy, where they will live on to fight the icky bad guys.

Do it.

Prioritize Exercise

We know—this one’s a no-brainer. You need to move your body to get things moving (if you know what we mean), and exercise is how you do it. Even a 20-minute walk every day can make SUCH a difference to your digestive health.

Your belly will thank you for it, we promise.

Try Fermented Foods

Hint: we’re not talking about grapes, or liquid products derived from them. (Ha.)

We’re talking about fermented vegetables, kombucha, good quality yogurt, kefir, etc. Fermented foods are super high in good bacteria, and over time, they can have a huge impact on the health of your digestive environment.

Get NutraCleanse

Yep—we’re plugging our own product here. But seriously? The main ingredient in NutraCleanse™ (flax seed) is incredibly high in fibre and other nutrients that aid a healthy digestive system. As adults, we’re supposed to be raking in about 34 grams of fibre a day—which is waaaayyy more than the 11 grams we actually take in. (On average, of course.)

An incredibly easy way to increase your fibre intake, is by mixing 1/3 cup of NutraCleanse™ (per day) into smoothies, oatmeal, baked goods, and more.

De-Stress

Here we go with that “second brain” thing again. Stress plays a massive role in your health—actually, scratch that—the way you handle stress plays a massive role in your health.

And stress can mess with your stomach.

Although most people think the mind is what takes the brunt of your stress, that’s not necessarily true. Because of your brain-to-gut connection (both organs were originally one, and the term ‘enteric nervous system’ is used in the medical field to discuss that connection), stress can appear in the form of stomach knots, constipation, indigestion, and more.

So what do you do?

Lower that stress level and learn to manage stress better. You can do this by exercising regularly, eating well, meditating and practicing yoga.

Give Your Liver Some Love

Essentially, if you can boost your liver, you can heal your bad gut. By adding foods like leafy greens, beets, carrots, bitters, dandelion, and milk thistle, you inadvertently improve the health of your digestive system.

Tune Into Your Body

Again, we’re busy people who live busy lives. But by taking the time to listen to your body, we can really help to manage stress, know when a certain food isn’t working well for us, notice when a certain food is, and recognize the need for downtime and sleep.

By listening to your body, you can put all of the ideas listed above into play—and your digestive system will flourish and be healthy.

Prioritizing Wellness with NutraCleanse™

Wellness: isn’t is strange how we’re all ready and willing to pay top dollar for our favourite bottle of wine or the sports package on TV or a vacation, but we balk at the price of gym memberships and health food?

Investing in your own health is the best investment you can possibly make; if you’re unwell or your health is chronically compromised, everything else fades away.

So why do we find it so difficult to put our health on a pedestal and prioritize our own wellness? After all, we only get one chance to create the healthy lives we all want—why not do everything we can to tip the odds of that happy, healthy life in our favour?

Here are some ways to ensure a healthy body and mind:

DO these things:

  • Sleep: 7-8 hours per night.
  • Exercise: At least 30 minutes a day; 5 days a week.
  • Eat a plant-based diet: Incorporate lots of nutritious plant foods into your favourite meals!
  • Drink water: 8 cups a day, guys
  • Stretch: Everyday–motion is lotion.
  • Breathe mindfully: Try to be conscious about breath–especially if you’re feeling stressed out.
  • Practice what you enjoy: This is important.
  • Be grateful: Practicing gratitude every day leads to a happier life experience.
  • Say thank you: Because you should. Be thankful.

DON’T do these things:

  • Stress: Stress leads to inflammation, which is the cornerstone of disease.
  • Keep grudges: Because it’s not worth it. Be happy.
  • Forget what’s important: Remind yourself of what’s important to you every day.
  • Skimp on sleep: Sleep is necessary for cellular repair–it makes us look younger, feel good, and have more energy.
  • Eat empty calories: Why eat foods that do nothing to amplify your own wellness, when you can eat foods that your body craves?
  • Take your health for granted: Because we only get one body–take care of it.

It’s all about baby steps, right? One way to easily incorporate better health into your life, is to incorporate NutraCleanse™ into your diet. The ingredients in NutraCleanse™ have been shown to help lower your blood sugar and blood pressure, improve your digestive health, and increase your intake of important omega 3 fatty acids.

So try NutraCleanse™ today, and start investing in your health immediately. Your health matters—so improve it.

4 Reasons to Start Using NutraCleanse™ in the New Year

January is a month of resolutions, and everyone’s making them. If your New Year’s resolution is to get healthier, then NutraCleanse™ can help. Here are 4 reasons to make NutraCleanse™ part of your healthy living resolution in 2018:

Post-Holiday Detox

Let’s face it: after weeks on end of sugar, booze, and general overeating, we need some help to get our bodies back to normal in the new year. NutraCleanse™ helps, because its primary ingredient (flax seed) acts as a mild laxative—it literally gathers up waste and forces it to exit (in a nice, predictable, gentle way).

When your digestive tract is clogged up, the best thing to do is to, well…unclog it. And that’s where NutraCleanse™ comes in. Our product is composed primarily of fiber (a point we’ll touch on further down this blog post), and fiber works wonders for eliminating waste. Which brings us to:

Lose Weight

NutraCleanse™ aids in weight loss, because again, the ingredients the product is comprised of are known for encouraging the removal of anything extra that may be lurking in your intestine and colon.

Most people carry an extra 5-15 pounds of waste in their colons! Get it out by mixing 1/3 cup of NutraCleanse™ per day into your smoothies, oatmeal, or fruit juice.

Let the new year find you feeling happier and healthier!

Improve Your Eating Habits

If you’re hoping to adopt better eating habits in the new year, then start with NutraCleanse™. NutraCleanse™ is designed to add fiber to your diet in a tasty way. You can do this by mixing NutraCleanse™ with healthy foods for combined effect of enhanced health and wellness.

When you become mindful about what you eat, you automatically take in more nourishment and less empty calories.

Get More Fiber

We all hear about how we should consume more fiber, but why? Fiber helps us in several ways, including these:

  • aids in the relief of constipation, and increases bowel health
  • slows the absorption of sugar into our bloodstream, thereby lowering blood sugar levels
  • full of healthy omega fatty acids, which are essential for good health

By consuming more fiber (and in this case, flax seed), you increase your health in several ways, so consider making NutraCleanse™ a part of this New Year’s resolution—it’s simple, effective, and is sure to contribute to your better health, one scoop at a time.

Here’s to 2018. Happy Holidays from the NutraCleanse™ team! To find a NutraCleanse™ retailer near you, see HERE.

Here are 3 gluten-free winter recipes that use NutraCleanse™ (All 3 recipes adapted from Vegetarian Comfort Foods with permission from author Jennifer Browne.):

  5. Top with banana slices, walnuts, and cinnamon. Enjoy!

  5. Cook on high for two hours, or low for 6 hours, stirring occasionally.
  6. Just before serving, add NutraCleanse™ and stir into chili.
  7. Remove bay leaves, and serve hot.

Chunky Monkey Cookies

These cookies are soft and fabulous and entirely flourless. Be careful—they vanish quickly.

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • ½ cup NutraCleanse™
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mash bananas in a large bowl, and then stir in remaining ingredients.
  3. Let batter stand for about 10 minutes (this is important—it’s how the batter thickens up).
  4. Drop by small spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet, and flatten slightly with a fork. Bake for 12 minutes.
  5. Let cool completely, and then enjoy!

Ways to Keep Healthy During the Holiday Season

Once November rolls around, we all kind of begin to let loose where food and beverages are concerned. But why? To make our January harder? To increase our chances of contracting viruses and the flu by shattering our immune system? To follow the masses into the popular (but silly), unhealthy winter eating pattern?

Don’t do it!

By setting yourself up for a healthy November and December, you’ll automatically be ahead of the game by being fit when January rolls around, and everybody else is panicking at the gym. Win-win!

Here are a few ways to set yourself up for success through the holiday season, when it comes to health and happiness:

Create and Start an Exercise Plan NOW

Starting the first week of November, set a schedule for yourself to fit in exercise. Try and move your body for at least 30 minutes, 3 times per week. If you can do more, then great. If not, that’s alright. The consistency of this plan is more important than the length and even quality of your workout.

Just get off your butt, and move.

Keep an Eye on Your Alcohol Intake

Although tempted by eggnog in grocery stores and the general pass we receive to drink more booze in general, don’t do it. Reserve your alcohol consumption for parties—typically on weekends—and when you do drink, try and balance it out with equal amounts of water.

Try really hard not to binge!

Also. keep in mind that sugary drinks will contain more calories and almost guarantee hangovers. Try and stick to clear spirits and mix with water and/or club soda.

Make Smoothies with NutraCleanse™ for Breakfast

This is important, because you guarantee yourself a healthy start to each day. By incorporating our product into your fruit-heavy smoothie (full of antioxidants!), you also help keep your bowel clean and lose weight by doing this!

All that extra fiber from the NutraCleanse™ mix (mainly the flax seed) can also help to lower your blood sugar. It’s a win-win! For tasty smoothie recipes, click HERE.

More Water and Herbal Tea; Less Everything Else

It’s a great idea to try and stay as hydrated as possible throughout the holiday season. Why?

  • Water helps to balance out any dehydrating activities you many partake in. (Ahem.)
  • Water assists your body in staving off viruses by lubricating the inside of your nose, eyes, and throat.
  • Water aids in general weight loss.

So ditch the sodas and juices and stick to what you know your body really craves–water.

Eat Your Veg

Consuming tons of vegetables throughout the holiday season is imperative to assisting in fighting cold-and-flu season illnesses, they assist in weight loss, they provide antioxidants that help with cellular repair, and they lend energy for days that are dark and gloomy.

Essentially, vegetables are like therapy for your whole body, from the inside-out. For a great vegetarian recipe book suggestion, click HERE.

To help kick-start the holiday season in a healthy way, find NutraCleanse™ in a retail store near you, or order online at www.nutracleanse.biz.

Good luck, and Happy November!

10 Foods That Help Fight Back-to-School Stress

If you or someone in your family suffers from back-to-school stress and anxiety, you’re not alone. In fact, it’s very common. And not just for students—many parents report feeling stressed out during this time of year, too.

For kids, back-to-school can be stress and anxiety provoking for several reasons, including the imminent social and academic pressures, changes in schedule, and new routines.

Kids won’t often vocalize these feelings of stress, but since our body (particularly our gut) is so in tune with our emotional wellbeing, stress often manifests itself into a tummy ache for kids.

So what can we eat to help calm our gut and mind at the same time? Here are 10 foods that are known to be stress-reducing:

Asparagus

Depression has long been linked to low levels of folic acid, and one food that boosts tons of this mood-enhancing nutrient is asparagus.

Blueberries

Just a handful of nutritional powerhouse blackberries pack a powerful punch of antioxidants and vitamin C, making them incredible stress-busters. When we’re stressed, our bodies need vitamin C and antioxidants to help repair and protect cells.

Avocado

Feelings of anxiety may be rooted in a B vitamin deficiency, since we need B vitamins for healthy nerves and brain cells. Luckily, avocados are rich in stress-relieving B vitamins. Also, they’re super high in monounsaturated fat and potassium, which help lower blood pressure.

Win-win!

Milk

Everyone knows that a glass of warm milk before bed is a time-tested remedy for insomnia. That’s because milk is high in antioxidants, vitamins B2 and B12, protein, and calcium. Milk can create a calming effect by lowering blood pressure, while the potassium in milk can help relieve muscle spasms triggered by feeling tense.

Oranges

There’s a reason orange juice is said to be part of the breakfast of champions: Vitamin C is another vitamin known to lower blood pressure and cortisol, which is a stress hormone.

Almonds

Almonds are rich in vitamins B2 and E, which are both stress-reducing vitamins. These nutrients help bolster the immune system during times of anxiety and stress.

Salmon

A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids helps keep cortisol and adrenaline from spiking when you’re feeling tense. Since salmon is one of the very best sources of omega-3s, it’s a great choice for a couple of back-to-school dinners.

Turkey

That sleepy feeling you get after eating Thanksgiving dinner is due to the amino acid tryptophan found in turkey. Tryptophan signals the brain to release the feel-good chemical serotonin, which promotes calmness and even tiredness. Try making turkey soup for dinner and then packing your child leftovers for lunch the next day.

Spinach

Leafy greens aren’t usually most people’s idea of comfort food, but spinach can have a major comforting effect. It’s packed with magnesium, the mineral that helps regulate cortisol levels and promote feelings of well-being.

Oatmeal

Oatmeal is another food that helps get the calm-inducing hormone serotonin flowing. Choose the big old-fashioned oats that require cooking instead of instant oatmeal.

Why?

Coarse oats are less processed and way higher in fiber, so they take longer to digest (meaning their calming effect lasts longer).

Consuming these foods on a regular basis for the first few weeks of back-to-school would be very helpful in keeping stress at bay. And since stress can often cause constipation (more blood flow to the brain equals less in the digestive system), we’re here to help with that, too.

NutraCleanse™

Just 1/3 cup NutraCleanse™ once per day can help alleviate constipation, due to it’s main ingredient: ground flax seed. Since flax seed is super high in fibre, NutraCleanse™ works really well in aiding temporary digestive issues like constipation. To order online, visit nutracleanse.biz.

Happy back-to-school! Keep calm, and eat on.

 

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.

To order NutraCleanse™ online or find a retailer near you, visit our website.

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.
