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.

 

 

3 Ways to Get Kids to Eat NutraCleanse™

Ensuring your child receives a healthy daily dose of nutrients in her diet can be a daunting task. Generally speaking, kids tend to have very particular appetites, tastes, and opinions, and it doesn’t usually support a large serving of greens or grains!

We have mentioned this before (see here): the importance of a healthy diet rich in omega fatty acids and fibre is imperative for kids’ growing bodies and brain development.

NutraCleanse™ can help!

Our dry food product is a unique formulation of flaxseeds and mostly organic (locally sourced) ingredients to provide an excellent source of fibre and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. You can easily sneak NutraCleanse™ into many kid-approved meals and snacks so they can’t taste the healthiness (heaven forbid!) or have any reason to turn it down.

Here are 3 ways to sneak NutraCleanse™ in your child’s snacks and meals today:

Smoothies

Smoothies are a favourite snack choice for kids; probably for the slushy-like, fruity flavours that mask the taste of spinach and other healthy ingredients that were possibly added.

They’re great, because you can throw in whatever ingredients you have on hand, add some liquid, add some ice, and that’s it! There are tons of great recipes for smoothies out there that your kids will enjoy, and it’s so simple to increase the nutritional value of the smoothies by adding ⅓ cup of NutraCleanse™ to them.

Here’s a smoothie recipe from Angela Liddon (author of Oh She Glows) that mimics a chocolate milkshake:

Cheerful Chocolate Smoothie

Add to blender:

  • 2 cups of almond milk
  • ¼ cup avocado
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Very small pinch of fine-grain sea salt
  • 4-6 pitted medium Medjool dates, to taste
  • 4-6 ice cubes

Now add 1/3 cup of NutraCleanse™ (and possibly a splash more almond milk if it’s too thick), put the lid on the blender, and blend on high for 30 seconds. Serve immediately.

Kids’ Oatmeal

Kids love the soft, gooey goodness of oatmeal and it makes for a great breakfast or snack. Avoid buying the prepackaged and processed stuff though; you’ll want all the nutritional benefits of making up your own batch from scratch.

Our tried and true recipe for oatmeal is always a hit with the kids: add 1/3 cup oatmeal to 1 cup cold water in a pot with a dash of salt. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently. Turn heat down and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add 1/3 cup NutraCleanse™ and stir. Empty into bowl, and serve with honey and milk.

Baking for Kids

Do your kids like cookies? (Silly question, right?)

Our product can be hidden into the goodness of all kinds of baked goods. This is a great one for kids, because you can include them in the process of baking, and talk to them about the importance of following recipes and measuring out ingredients. Kids love to help out in the kitchen, so go ahead and start them while they’re young!

To make a healthier version of whatever you happen to be baking, just add NutraCleanse™! All you need to do is portion out some of the flour. If the recipe calls for one cup of flour, you can use ⅔ cup of flour and ⅓ cup of NutraCleanse. Give it a try in your next batch of chocolate chip cookies or banana muffins!

Sneaking our product into meals and snacks everyday will provide your children (and you) with essential nutrients that your body needs to stay healthy. To learn more recipe ideas or find out where you can purchase our product, feel free to visit our website or watch the video below:
