The human body is naturally equipped with several systems that work together to eliminate toxins, including the skin, liver, kidneys, and digestive system. These systems can be boosted by using superfoods that have the potential to bring about a number of benefits.
These benefits include improved digestion, clearer skin, and increased energy levels after detoxing. Detoxing may also help to boost the immune system and support overall health and well-being.
Can Berries Help Detoxing?
Berries can be very helpful when detoxing. Berries are usually high in antioxidants, yellow berries being especially high in vitamin C content, and dietary fibre.
Antioxidants can help to protect your body from the damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells and contribute to the development of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Antioxidants help to neutralize free radicals and prevent them from causing harm.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can support the body's natural detoxification processes, such as the production of glutathione, a compound that helps to eliminate toxins from the body.
High fibre content can help to support digestion and promote the elimination of toxins from the body.
Which Berries Are the Best for Detoxing?
Some good options for detoxing include blueberries, blackcurrants, sea buckthorn, raspberries and strawberries.
Boost Your Detox with Elixirs
Our Elixirs include nettle, angelica and rhodiola. Loaded with vitamins and minerals, nothing can compete with the pure arctic power of the elixirs.
Nettle is a powerful purifier that cleanses the body. It's also a strong diuretic, aiding in the functioning of the kidneys and the elimination of toxins.
Angelica for Liver Detox
Angelica root (Angelica archangelica) is a plant that has been traditionally used to support digestion and promote overall well-being. Its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and carminative properties may help to reduce inflammation, kill harmful bacteria, and alleviate gas and bloating. Most importantly, its liver detox effect has been proven by a study in 2003, which found that angelica root extract was able to reduce the levels of several toxic compounds in the liver of mice.
Rhodiola to Reduce Fatigue
Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea) is a plant that has traditionally been used to boost energy, reduce fatigue, and improve mental performance. Evidence suggests that rhodiola may be helpful for boosting energy levels and reducing fatigue during a detox. For example, one study found that rhodiola improved physical performance and reduced fatigue in people with stress-related fatigue. Another study found that rhodiola helped to improve mental performance and reduce fatigue in people with a mental workload.
