DETOX THE BODY

7-Day Superfood Detox

DAY 1: Liver Detoxification

The liver is responsible for metabolizing many toxins, including drugs and medications, chemicals, and natural substances. Because the liver removes toxins and transforms them into harmless byproducts, there are usually small amounts of toxins in your liver. This is generally not a problem. Issues start, however, when there’s a buildup of too many toxins – which is precisely what this plan is designed to address.
Another important role of this organ is to produce bile, a substance the digestive system uses to break down fat. Since liver cleansing promotes bile production, detoxing your liver is also considered to be the place to start if you want to lose weight

Beet, Apple + Ginger Cooler

Detoxifying ingredients:

  • Beet: This root vegetable is rich in phytonutrients that have strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The nutrient betaine found in beets promotes the flow of bile for better digestion. Beets are also wonderfully detoxifying and blood purifying.
  • Ginger: Ginger helps to stimulate better digestion and may help protect the liver from oxidative damage.
  • Apple: High in pectin, apples hold the chemical constituents necessary for the body to cleanse and release toxins from the digestive tract. This, in turn, makes it easier for the liver to handle the toxic load during the cleansing process.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • ½ cup beetroot juice
  • ½ tsp freshly grated ginger
  • ½ cup chopped apple
  • ½ cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • ½ tbsp stevia (optional for added sweetness)
  • 1 serving protein powder – 25 grams of protein (optional)
  • ½ cup ice

How to make your detox drink:

Simply add all of the ingredients into your blender starting with the liquids first and blend for 40-60 seconds. You may add more liquid (water) to reach a thinner consistency or add more ice to thicken the drink recipe.

DAY 2: Digestive System Detoxification

The digestive system is considered to be our ‘master absorptive’ organ system. Therefore many toxins can easily become absorbed by the water, food, and air we breathe. As a result, these toxins often become trapped in this region of our body, causing inflammation, weight gain, and digestive issues. For this reason, it’s critical that we clear this organ system from toxin buildup so that we can effectively digest nutrients from foods, decrease inflammation and eliminate solid wastes.
The small intestine’s role is to absorb nutrients from food whereas the large intestine (also known as the colon), rids the body of leftovers from digestion in the form of solid wastes. The pancreas, which is considered to be an accessory structure to the digestive system, plays a role in converting food into energy and also helps stabilize blood sugar, so it’s important to detoxify these organs in the initial days of detoxification.

Thin Mint Smoothie

Detoxifying ingredients:

  • Mint: This herb aids digestion and can help to relieve indigestion and heartburn. It can also assist with relaxing intestinal muscles.
  • Wheatgrass: Wheatgrass contains the essential enzymes protease and amylase, which assist in protein digestion and facilitate general digestion.
  • Spinach: Research has found that spinach leaves contain significant amounts of a newly discovered enzyme, sugar sulfoquinovose (SQ), which feeds good gut bacteria.
  • Avocado: This superfood has a number of health benefits but digestion is a little-known one of them. This food has a high level of healthy fat and it also contains lipase. Lipase is a digestive enzyme that is used to help break down fat in your digestive tract. It can help reduce the symptoms of indigestion and discomfort.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • ½ tbsp chopped mint leaf (or ½ tsp extract)
  • 1 tsp wheatgrass powder
  • 1 cup chopped spinach leaves
  • ½ small avocado
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • ½ cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • ½ tbsp stevia (optional for added sweetness)
  • 1 serving protein powder – 25 grams of protein (optional)
  • ½ cup ice

How to make your detox drink:

Simply add all of the ingredients into your blender starting with the liquids first and blend for 40-60 seconds. You may add more liquid (water) to reach a thinner consistency or add more ice to thicken the drink recipe.

DAY 3: Kidneys + Bladder (Urinary Tract) Detoxification

Now that the liver and digestive organs are primed, it’s time to filter and eliminate these waste substances from our blood by cleansing the organs associated with our urinary tract – the kidney and bladder. These organics clear wastes from the blood and also maintain our fluid balance, therefore optimizing the health of these organs will greatly support the detoxification process.

Cranberry Carrot Cooler

Detoxifying ingredients:

  • Cranberry: Cranberries are a group of evergreen dwarf shrubs that support urinary tract health by flushing UTI bacterial overgrowth out.
  • Carrot: Another powerful root vegetable, carrots are rich in vitamins and minerals that are essential to kidney health. The nutrients found in carrots flush out excess uric acid and safely remove toxins.
  • Lime: Limes act as a powerful diuretic, flushing toxins out of the body. Its high levels of flavonoids (antioxidants) help the body to dissolve mucus and scour for harmful free radicals.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • ¼ cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • ¼ cup shredded carrot
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or unsweetened coconut milk, skim, or water)
  • ½ tbsp stevia (optional for added sweetness)
  • 1 serving protein powder – 25 grams of protein (optional)
  • ½ cup ice

How to make your detox drink:

Simply add all of the ingredients into your blender starting with the liquids first and blend for 40-60 seconds. You may add more liquid (water) to reach a thinner consistency or add more ice to thicken the drink recipe.

DAY 4: Heart + Lungs Detoxification

The heart is responsible for pumping blood throughout the body via the circulatory system. Together with the lungs, both organs are responsible for supplying oxygen and nutrients to our tissues and removing carbon dioxide and other wastes.

Pomegranate Punch

Detoxifying ingredients:

  • Pomegranate: Pomegranates appear to be particularly useful in improving heart health. This fruit is remarkably rich in antioxidants, such as soluble polyphenols, tannins as well as anthocyanins.
  • Ginger: Not only is this spice anti-inflammatory, but it is also detoxifying and promotes the elimination of pollutants from the lungs. Ginger molecules may eliminate air pollutants out of air passages, relieve congestion, and improve circulation to the lungs, boosting lung health.
  • Strawberry: Fruits containing vitamin C, like strawberries, boost the production of enzymes that help in liver detoxification, cleansing it naturally and helping in the effective transportation of oxygen throughout the body by the lungs.
  • Chlorella: The superfood, chlorella offers your body a rich supply of beta-carotene and vitamin A. This form of algae is also known for its distinct ability for heavy metal detoxification which can purify the lungs from airborne pollutants we breathe in.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • ¼ cup pomegranate juice (no sugar added, organic)
  • ½ tsp grated ginger
  • 3 large strawberries
  • 1 tsp chlorella powder
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or unsweetened coconut milk, skim, or water)
  • ½ tbsp stevia (optional for added sweetness)
  • 1 serving protein powder – 25 grams of protein (optional)
  • ½ cup ice

How to make your detox drink:

Simply add all of the ingredients into your blender starting with the liquids first and blend for 40-60 seconds. You may add more liquid (water) to reach a thinner consistency or add more ice to thicken the drink recipe.

DAY 5: Thyroid Detoxification

Although the thyroid isn’t considered to be directly related to detoxification, this organ is responsible for releasing hormones that control our metabolism. Therefore by supporting this organ, we can promote healthy metabolism which enables fat loss to occur.

Grüner Smoothie mit Apfel und Gojibeeren

Goji Green Smoothie

Detoxifying ingredients:

  • Sea plants: Your car runs on gasoline, and your thyroid runs on iodine. Insufficient levels of the element inhibit the production of metabolism-regulating thyroid hormones; and since your body doesn’t make it, it’s essential to include iodine contains foods such as sea plants (like seaweed, spirulina, and kelp) in your diet.
  • Goji berries: In general, the endocrine system (which includes the thyroid) is relatively fragile and vulnerable to damages caused by oxidative processes. Goji berries can relieve this stress as they are an excellent source of flavonoids and rich in antioxidants.
  • Greek yogurt: Yogurt is a good source of iodine, as well as protein, calcium, and digestive bacteria that all help promote thyroid health and a healthy metabolism.
  • Ashwagandha: This adaptogenic herb helps the body cope with stress, reduces cortisol levels (another cause of abdominal weight gain), and improves thyroid function.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 tbsp goji berries
  • 1 tsp spirulina powder (can substitute with chopped seaweed or kelp)
  • 1 tsp ashwagandha powder
  • 1 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • ½ tbsp stevia (optional for added sweetness)
  • 1 serving protein powder – 25 grams of protein (optional)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or unsweetened coconut milk, skim, or water)
  • ½ cup ice

How to make your detox drink:

Simply add all of the ingredients into your blender starting with the liquids first and blend for 40-60 seconds. You may add more liquid (water) to reach a thinner consistency or add more ice to thicken the drink recipe.

DAY 6: Skin Detoxification

The skin, the body’s largest organ, filters toxins and waste products through sweating. For this reason, it’s important to optimize our skin at the cellular level to ensure this detoxification can occur at its fullest potential.

Cucumber, Carrot + Kale Smoothie

Detoxifying ingredients:

  • Celery: It’s wonderful for purifying the blood and reducing inflammation, all of which are reflected on our outer layer.
  • Cucumber: Since they are 90% water, they provide wonderful internal hydration, which is key for external radiance. They are also naturally cooling and can help tame inflammation-caused redness.
  • Carrot: It’s high in vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene, which is a powerful antioxidant that prevents cell degeneration and helps to slow the aging process. It’s high in vitamin C, which is key in helping the body produce collagen. Potassium is also found in carrots, which promotes the growth of new skin cells.
  • Lemon: It’s packed with vitamin C and B vitamins, another blood purifier, which also helps to eliminate toxins that lead to a brighter complexion.
  • Kale: It’s an anti-inflammatory, nutrition-rich, and vitamin-rich powerhouse packed with vitamins A, C, K, E, calcium, and beta carotene that all help repair skin damage. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids amp up its anti-inflammatory properties even more.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • ¼ cup chopped celery
  • ¼ cup shredded carrot
  • ½ cup sliced cucumber

DAY 7: Total Body Detoxification

Now that all corners of your body are primed, supporting the entire system of interconnected organs will yield maximum detox benefits on a daily basis. The detox drink on the 7th day can be consumed every day for total body daily detoxification.

The Green Detox

Detoxifying ingredients:

  • Ginger: Including ginger in your total body detox drink will ensure inflammation stays at an all-time low. Since it aids in digestion, it will promote regular waste elimination as well.
  • Superfood berries: The top-ranked superfood berries are cranberry, pomegranate, goji, and acai berries. Each of these berries contains a rich source of antioxidant compounds, particularly anthocyanins and Omega-3 fatty acids which can protect against damages from exposure to toxins from the environment such as solar radiation and air or water pollutants. Since superfood berries are known to fight free radicals and are antioxidant-rich, they are considered vital for our everyday health and well-being.
  • Leafy greens: Leafy greens such as kale and spinach are rich in vitamin A – good for building your body’s natural defenses against toxins, vitamin C for healthy skin and bones, and vitamin K to help your body heal itself quickly when necessary.
  • Sea plants: Spirulina, chlorella, and kelp (seaweed) are critical for not only their role in supporting our metabolism (through thyroid support), but also in detoxifying the body from heavy metals that can be consumed through our air, food, and water supply.
