Health Tip: Fiber, Water & Omega-3s are all you need for a safe and effective cleanse


Whether it’s a juice cleanse, a specific diet, pill or supplement, many people are feeling the need to jump on the body cleanse bandwagon. The point of cleansing is simply to rid the body of toxins; essentially, cleaning out the colon. Instead of wasting money on commercial cleanses, consider a simple and inexpensive alternative.

– Increase Your Fiber Intake: Aim for about 30 to 35 grams of high quality fiber per day.

– Drink More Water:  As a rule of thumb, divide your weight in half and drink that many ounces per day.

– Increase Your Omega-3 intake: These oils lubricate your intestinal system, aiding your body in the cleansing process.

Natural Body Cleanse Benefits:

1. More Energy
Due to more efficient digestive system, you will have more energy. Our bodies spend so much time fighting off toxins and dealing with ailments stemming from the foods we take in. When we flush our system, it gives it a break and revitalizes it.

2. Calibrated Appetite
Cleansing works to regulate those food cravings that are often times harmful to the body.

3. Glow
By ridding the body of many of the harmful by-products resting in our gut, our skin gets to radiate. Also, many have experienced an increase in the skin’s elasticity.
