January is coming to an end and most New Year, New Me aspirations are dwindling. The most simple ways to help detoxify your body and help rejuvenate yourself back to brilliance is through ingesting some of these fab products. Did you catch last week’s blog on products to help detox your outsides? I am back with more detox-centric products, but this time with some amazing products to help detox your insides. Bring on the food and drink…and powders.
Powders can be consumed in juices, smoothies, protein shakes and even sprinkled on yoghurts or in smoothie bowls. My favourite way is to add any powder to a smoothie to mask any flavour of the powder. I find that most powders taste far too earthy and feel worse than I should once consuming them. The only powder that actually smells and tastes good is Perricone MD’s Super Greens powder, they actually taste like a fruity kids squash! …totally stomachable 🙂 Perricone’s super greens also come in handy little sachets which you can see in the picture below. If you are often on the road travelling this would be an amazing product to pop in your bag and add to your glass of water each morning. Other greens which Liam and I often use and have in our cupboard are spirulina and chlorella. Spirulina is an incredible supplement to add to your daily intake if you are a vegetarian or someone who suffers with low iron. The green powder has 3900% more iron in it than spinach. Both spirulina and chlorella are great antioxidants and help with detoxifying your body. You can tell how incredible their nutritiousness is by the darkness of their colour in the image below…insane, you could make some incredible paintings with those powders!
Tablets take a little bit longer to dissolve and infiltrate your body yet they are great if you need to boost a certain aspect. These are the two products which I recommend. I take silica tablets daily to boost the healthiness and strength of my hair and nails. I find these tablets are amazing for the job. Check out Monday’s post where I talked about the two products which help my nails grow. Another tablet which I take, yet far less frequently is milk thistle. Milk thistle tablets are great to take when you have indulged a little too much. It is actually widely known to be a great tablet for a hangover because it is designed to help the protection against liver damage. Are you back on the booze yet? Maybe you should give them a go.
Liquids are easy to include into your diet and there are some tasty options out there. Two drinks that Liam and I drink are coconut water and more recently kombucha. I would say that coconut water can be a bit of a “required” taste. I’m not much of a fan but want to include its potassium and magnesium benefits into my diet. I tend to add it to my smoothies so its flavour isn’t so obvious. Liam on the other hand drinks it like water. Kombucha has began to grow in popularity and is actually rather yummy. Kombucha is basically a fermented tea, I think it tastes like slightly off sweet apples…yet, get that thought out of your head and it can be quite yummy hehe. There are so many claimed benefits to the drink including detoxification, improved digestion, weight loss and many more benefits. It is definitely a drink to be researched into further. My only hesitation to it is that it is very heavy in sugar. What do you think about it?
Do you already use any of these products? Which is your favourite?
