Detox — A must for cleansing your body

If you’re looking for an energy boost, it may be time to recharge from within. Remember, you are what you eat, so consider a complete body detox. 

According to the World Health Organization, one quarter of diseases are the result of pollution affecting our bodies and health. 

In this article, we bring you our top three smoothie recipes for detoxing your body. Read on to find out how you can start to shine from within in a few simple steps—all thanks to Alterra’s Detox Kit. 

Detox 101: Generally, the body does an effective job of eliminating impurities. However, exposure to toxins invading our environment and our bodies hinders the body’s ability to cleanse itself. The toxins at fault include polluted, processed and refined foods as well as the air around us. Cell receptors and mediators are inhabited by toxins that interfere with the body’s metabolism and regular functioning. Toxicity involves the manifestation of harmful effects following exposure to chemicals. 

The severity and reversibility of the toxin depends on the dose, concentration, duration of contact and potency. We most often hear about serious cases of toxicity occurring over long periods leading to various functional disorders. Such cases have no direct causal link, unlike the acute instances of toxicity commonly observed in medicine. 

Common benefits after a detox treatment:

  • Increased energy and vitality 
  • Improved metabolism 
  • Mental clarity
  • Improved sleep 
  • More radiant skin
  • Reduced gas and bloating
  • Improved digestion 
  • Body lightness
