Let’s face it––we could all use a little bit of a detox every now and then.
Our livers filter a lot of toxins from our body, and even our body’s natural yeast could use a good detox. Heck, even the healthy foods we know and love can cause lingering inflammation in the stomach and gut.
In any case, you could use a good detox when a) it’s been a while and b) you’re in tune with your body and you just have a feeling it’s time. If this is you, we have good news! There are 3 very common, natural detoxifiers you can use for a little detoxification.
The Big 3
Believe it or not, the 3 biggest detoxifiers are extremely common and super accessible. You might even have one or all of them in your kitchen right now!
- Maple Syrup
- Cayenne Pepper
For optimal detox results, you’ll want to work all 3 into your daily routine…but don’t worry, it’s easier than you think. But first, let’s explore the benefits of each!
The Benefits of These Natural Detoxifiers
Lemons are one of nature’s Vitamin C powerhouse. Additionally, lemons also provide your body with antioxidants to help fight free radicals in the blood and possibly assist in weight loss. Lemons also promote healthy digestion and help rid your body of unwanted metals and toxins. They are also good for your skin.
Not only does maple syrup provide your body with numerous antioxidants, it is also a sweetener that rates very low on the glycemic index. Over-indulgence of processed sugars and artificial sweeteners can send your health into a tailspin. Alternatives like maple syrup can help avoid those negative effects. Maple Syrup is also rich in minerals, which are necessary for your everyday health.
Cayenne pepper is so much more than a spice. Some consider cayenne pepper the “king of medicinal herbs.”1 Like the other ingredients in our Detox blend, cayenne peppers help with digestion by helping deliver enzymes to the stomach. They are also important for metabolization and create a state of diet-induced thermogenesis.
All these ingredients combined create a dietary supplement that will help curb hunger, aid in digestion without the negative effects of some laxatives, detoxify your body, and possibly help clear up your skin.
An Easier Way to Detox
Want to supplement a meal or stay hydrated without going through the process of blending up a shake or adding sugary powders to your water bottle? We’ve got you covered.
Our simple, but effective Detox blend is made from three simple ingredients: lemon, cayenne pepper, and maple syrup. This blend has one of the most tried-and-true, popular detoxes for many reasons over the years, but we’ve decided to give it an upgrade.
Each of the ingredients in our Detox blend brings its own set of benefits for your health.
Instead of fussing around with squeezing lemons and getting sticky maple syrup all over your hands, we’ve taken all three key ingredients and turned them into water-soluble powder. Simply add one scoop to 8-12 oz of water and you’re good to go.
