Gastrointestinal Detox – Get More Out of Your Cold Pressed Juices
The potent nutrient delivery that cold pressed juices provide, allows human cells to detoxify and rejuvenate. This has a profound effect on anything from improving energy levels to supporting the healing various ailments.
However if you are backed up (not moving your bowels optimally), where will all these toxins go? They will be re-absorbed by your colon and re-enter the body. This off course is counterproductive. . Ideally, we should have two to three bowel movements a day. In addition to optimal water and fiber intake, some herbs can be very effective at helping to improve elimination. Malva leaves and persimmon leaves are a good choice. They act as mild laxative, which are effective, yet gentle.
A healthy liver is another consideration. It is the primary organ responsible for neutralizing toxic substances before it ships them off for excretion, mainly through the intestines and the kidneys.
Some cellular toxins need to be “neutralized”, or “prepared” for excretion, or else they may be harmful If not fully eliminated. Nutritional deficiencies, as well as the toxic overload from our food, water, air and even from negative emotions, can diminish the liver’s ability to do its work properly. A key detoxification agent that is depleted in the process is glutathione. Certain herbs, such as milk thistle, are able to replenish glutathione levels in the liver and along with other thistles, such as blessed thistle help to improve liver functions.
If the intestines are inflamed, absorption of nutrients and proper elimination will likely me diminished. Concurrently a person may experience digestive discomfort such as bloating, gas, sluggish elimination (constipation), as well as diarrhea, and even inflammation.
Herbs such as malva (mentioned earlier), and marshmallow, have potent ant-inflammatory and “soothing” properties, helping to alleviate digestive discomfort.
Wholy Tea, a herbal detox formulation, contains all of the herbs mentioned here and is a great way to optimize the benefits you get form cold pressed juices.
Wholy tea users often experience improved elimination, alleviation of gastrointestinal discomfort, improved energy levels and when applicable, even weight loss.
