The start of a new year is the perfect time to stop and think about what we wish to accomplish in the year ahead. For many it is a chance to reflect on ways to improve in certain aspects of our life with health becoming an increasingly popular area to focus on.
Whether your goal is to lose weight, increase energy levels or improve immunity making a few changes to your current diet and lifestyle is a must. For many giving your body a ‘detox’ is the perfect place to start.
‘Detox’ is often a misunderstood word with many saying that its pointless or a waste of time. While the word itself may be misused within the health industry it is actually a vital process that your body constantly does in order to keep you healthy. The liver is the body’s major detoxifying organ, with its primary role to process and alter substances such as hormones and toxins into something that can be used or excreted from the body. By continually consuming liver loaders such as alcohol, coffee and medications your liver function can become less than optimal resulting in toxic substances circulating around your body for much longer than they should be. This can lead to a range of negative health consequences such as skin problems, a compromised immune system and difficulty reaching a healthy weight.
To put it simply – your liver is very important and in order to reach optimal health, supporting your liver should be a top priority.
The best way to do this is to decrease your consumption of food and beverages known to put strain on the liver such as alcohol and processed foods as well as to increase your consumption of green leafy vegetables. Your greens are your best friend when it comes to optimising your liver function as they provide the necessary nutrients such as chlorophyll, to aid your body’s natural detox processes.
