Spring is upon us, making it the perfect time to focus on healthy detoxification. As the seasons change, many of us are inspired to do some spring cleaning in our homes - but our bodies could probably benefit from a gentle detox too!
With that being said, you don’t (necessarily) need to do anything radical. Our bodies are equipped with highly effective detoxification systems - but our daily diet, environments and routines can overwhelm the body’s detoxification organs - which can lead to inflammation.
Get back on track by focusing on REMOVING unnecessary toxins, BOOSTING your nutrient intake, ADDING healthy habits into your daily routine and SUPPLEMENTING with SpiraVeg fresh spirulina daily!
REMOVE toxins by avoiding processed foods, buying organic when possible, storing leftovers in glassware or BPA-free containers and using eco-friendly cleaning products.
BOOST nutrient intake by filling your plate with nutrient-rich vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, legumes and, of course, SpiraVeg fresh spirulina.
ADD healthy habits by relaxing and restoring with massage, sauna, skin brushing and meditation.
SUPPLEMENT with fresh spirulina to boost your daily protein, antioxidant, iron and fatty-acid intake. This superfood supplement can help to lower inflammation, which is critical when detoxifying the body.
Enhance your daily detox and gently cleanse your liver, skin, colon, kidneys and lungs with the nourishing elixir recipe below! This easy-to-prepare elixir combines the powerful detoxification properties of spirulina, mint and lemon - and may even replace your morning cup of coffee!
SPIRAVEG FRESH SPIRULINA: Spirulina’s high-antioxidant content makes it the perfect detoxing food! This blue-green algae is also recognized as a powerful cleansing food because it contains proteins and peptides that are particularly good at binding to toxins and excreting them from the body so that they are not absorbed into the bloodstream.
MINT: Did you know that fresh mint has one of the highest antioxidant capacities of any food? This herb is the PERFECT ingredient for detox drinks because it offers a fresh flavour while soothing an upset stomach, aiding digestion and supporting oral health!
LEMON: Lastly, lemons have amazing alkalizing and detoxification properties! The lemon in this elixir can help to cleanse and detoxify the entire body. This not only leads to being healthier internally, but also can also reduce blemishes and support clear skin.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
Juice 1/2 lemon
1 cup warm, filtered water
Fresh mint leaves
1 tbsp SpiraVeg fresh spirulina
Add all ingredients into a tall glass and gently stir to combine.
