The Reboot Detox Plan
Detoxing is popular in January following the festivities and also time to reflect on the past year and the health goals missed. Here are our top detox tips to try and support your journey to a healthy you moving into the new year. Don't forget that living a healthy lifestyle isn't only for a month. It's about finding a routine that is sustainable and gradual. Drastic and restrictive diets only last for a period of time and things start to unravel when you stop the restrictive eating regime.
Exercise is key to strengthening your lung capacity and ability which is key every day especially during Covid-19. It is good to incorporate movement into your daily routine. It might be better to break exercise into smaller chunks for example taking 10 minutes in the morning to stretch or go for a 15 minute walk during your lunch break - this will improve productivity and get you moving. Also during your detox try to be active in your social life - maybe a walk with friends instead of a cocktail or coffee!
Specific foods help to assist your body in removing toxins such as heavy metal build up. Try to hit a daily target of 10 fruits and vegetables daily. A great way to make this happen is through juices and salads. Add in chlorophyll-rich foods such as wheatgrass and barley grass, as well as herbal teas and sea plants such as nori. Foods such as oranges, lemons, brazil nuts and sunflower seeds can also help remove heavy metals from the body. Also, drink water - lots of water - your body needs this to naturally detox itself.
It can be difficult to keep on top of foods that help to detox your body so by adding in supplementation you will make your detox much quicker and easier for your daily life. Below are some of the main natural detoxing supplements. So, here are the top detox supplements that we think will support your detox plans for January 2021.

Milk Thistle - The Liver Cleanser
Milk thistle is considered the “king” of detoxifying herbs, making it ideal for a liver cleanse. Milk thistle helps to eliminate the buildup of heavy metals, prescription medications, environmental pollutants and alcohol in the liver. In addition, it helps to reduce the negative effects on the liver after chemotherapy and radiation. The active ingredient silymarin helps to strengthen the cell walls in the liver, while supporting healthy regeneration.

Chlorella - Removes Heavy Metals from your body
Chlorella is a type of algae that acts as a natural chelator to remove heavy metals from the body. High levels of exposure to 23 environmental metals considered “heavy metals,” such as lead, mercury, aluminum and arsenic, can cause acute or chronic toxicity. This can result in damaged or reduced mental and central nervous function, along with damage to vital organs. Long-term exposure may lead to more serious physical, muscular and neurological degenerative processes.
Reishi Mushroom - Cleans, detoxes and protects the Liver
The liver is one of the most vital organs in the body. It is responsible for aiding in detoxification and helping clean, process, store and circulate healthy blood and nutrients. Reishi mushrooms work as adaptogens to help improve liver function and prevent liver disease. They allow your body to flush out toxins and bacteria more efficiently and improve immunity against diseases that can develop over time. A 2013 study published in the International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms found that Reishi induces hepatoprotective effects on acute liver injury because it contains antioxidant properties and fights harmful immune responses that slow down liver function.

Turmeric - Reduces inflammation in the body
Turmeric reduces joint pain; is an effective antidepressant; aids in digestion; helps to restore a healthy blood sugar balance; and supports healthy liver tissue and liver metabolism. Currently, researchers are studying turmeric for a variety of health benefits for diseases and conditions, including: Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, depression, osteoarthritis, breast health, prostate health and chronic pain.
But it's known as an anti-inflammatory and to support the liver.
Aloe Vera - The Gastro Cleanser
In traditional Indian medicine, aloe vera is used to treat constipation and other gastrointestinal complaints. Juice made from the plant’s leaves helps to keep your digestion regular by maintaining the water content in your intestines. This promotes the elimination of stool and helps to relieve constipation. Because aloe vera juice is water-dense, it keeps you hydrated and even promotes detoxification. By increasing your water intake, you’re flushing toxins and other impurities out of the body naturally. This boosts the health of your kidneys, liver, blood and skin.

Breathing fresh air and trying to get some natural vitamin D - even if it is difficult in the winter months - can help boost your mood and clear your mind. It could be as simple as choosing to exercise outside instead of the gym or eating your lunch outside.
Sleep is important to help rejuvenate cells and helps your body to heal and repair itself. It is recommended you get between 7 and 8 hours sleep every night. It is sometimes hard to see the importance of sleep during a busy life but small things like avoiding caffeine before bed can make such a large difference. Making time to unwind before you sleep by dimming the lights or turning off the TV can also improve your sleep quality. Scheduling your sleep times can also help build a positive sleep cycle!
