It has been more than a week since the official first day of spring. The leaves will start changing, and certain parts of the country will start having warmer weather. Summer will be here before we know it! This is the time of the year when most of us work the hardest to get our physiques ready to hit the pool or beach. But before the summer arrives, how about we do a little bit of "spring cleaning?" Not the cleaning of the house per se, I mean taking in nutrients that help detox the body. It is a great way to help make sure your body is ridding itself of toxins, plus detoxing the body might help melt away those last few pounds before summer.
Here's a short list of ways we can “spring clean” our bodies:
1. Make sure you're incorporating fiber-rich foods into your daily eating. Foods like oatmeal, leafy greens, broccoli, apples, pears, nuts, and seeds all make an excellent addition.
2. Add fiber powders like Renew Life Skinny Gut 100% Organic Acacia Fiber powder. It is unflavored, and can be mixed into drinks or sprinkled over any food you like.
3. Supplement with Triphala. Source Naturals makes an excellent tablet or capsule form of this ancient Ayurvedic trio. Triphala is the only gentle laxative on the market that helps with all three parts of the digestive process. It helps with the digestion of foods, assimilation of nutrients, and the proper elimination of waste. Triphala can be taken daily.
4. Start a good cleansing product. Vitamin Discount Center carries a vast array of products for people of all different stages of health.
