5 Ingredients for Spring Detoxification

 

With spring in the air, it’s out with the old and in with the new. Often, this means cleaning out the house and home—making way for a new season and a fresh chapter. But it’s not only about sprucing up our living space. This time of year offers the perfect time to kickstart our journey toward optimal health.

 

An easy way to do this is by detoxing the body with the right dietary approaches and supplements. Our digestive tract, along with our kidneys and liver, are the main superheroes 、when it comes to ridding the body of toxins, used hormones, and more. So, in this article, let’s take a look at what ingredients you might want to begin including in your life.

 

Top Supplements for Your Spring Detox

 

While not listed below, hydration is also a key ingredient in any detoxification recipe. So, don’t forget to drink plenty of water as you move throughout your day—especially if you work up a sweat!

 

With that in mind, here are five ingredients to add to your spring detox program.

 

1. Milk Thistle

 

The liver is a vital organ that helps protect against the harmful effects of toxins, chemicals, and metabolic by-products. It processes virtually everything you eat, drink, breathe in, or rub on your skin and is involved in over 500 different bodily functions. In other words, liver health should always be considered for detoxification. And this is where milk thistle comes into the picture.

 

Milk thistle has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that protect the liver from harm. It’s also shown to have an anti-viral impact when confronted with hepatitis C. It’s further been studied in relation to treatment for liver disease and damage.

 

All of the above is why Life Nutrition has chosen this ingredient as part of our Liver Detox supplement. We know it’s a proven ingredient to elevate your liver health!

 

2. Green Tea

 

Drinking a cup of green tea is linked to a lower risk of various chronic diseases, but that’s not all…

 

Green tea further supports the detoxification processes in the body by acting as a powerful antioxidant. In this way, it protects the body’s cells from harm caused by toxins and other compounds.

 

EGCG found in green tea may also reduce inflammation via its antioxidant properties. However, dosage is important. Too much of anything is never good. Thus, it may be best to stick to three or five cups of green tea (or less) per day.

 

3. Probiotics

 

Probiotics have become a hot topic in gut health circles. And this isn’t all for naught!

 

Probiotics can help restore the delicate balance of the gut’s microbiome (the bacteria in your gut)—ensuring everything else in the body, including immunity, cognition, and more, functions as it should. When the gut isn’t doing well, regular bowel movements (the key to ridding the body of all those toxins) can be tough. By taking care of your gut, you ensure your body can eliminate compounds, bacteria, and toxins as needed.

 

4. Soy Lecithin

 

Phosphatidylcholine—a major component of soy lecithin—plays a crucial role in maintaining the integrity of liver cells and the fluidity of bile.

 

Bile is essential for the digestion and absorption of fats and also serves as a route of excretion for many waste products and toxins. By supporting bile production and flow, soy lecithin (such as Life Nutrition’s Non-GMO Soy Lecithin) indirectly aids in the body's detoxification process by facilitating the elimination of toxins through the digestive tract.

 

5. Turmeric

 

Curcumin in turmeric is another powerful antioxidant. Beyond that, it may also maintain healthy bile by preventing the supersaturation of cholesterol in the bile contents—which can lead to gallstones and other issues. This ensures both smooth digestion and elimination.

 

One last thing to note is that fibre (found in veggies, fruits, oats, and more) can also be a wonderful addition to your diet, especially if your goal is detoxification. Fiber adds bulk to the stool and can make bowel movements that much easier. Begin your journey toward a healthy, clean, and refreshed body today by adding some of the above (and fibre) into your lifestyle.
