If you’ve indulged over Christmas and now want to spend the new year getting back into shape, then you may well be wondering how best to rid your body of harmful substances and get your body – and especially your liver – healthy again.
One option that’s definitely worth giving some consideration is a Moringa Detox, which involves using the leaves of the moringa tree to help your body clear away toxins. Consuming moringa is a simple as using the dried leaf powder to brew a hot cup of tea – although it can also be blended into a smoothie for an additional hit.
Best of all, you only need to use a small amount each day to feel the benefits, with a recommended serving of around 1 to 1.5 teaspoons per cup of water. From this, you receive vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12 and C, minerals such as potassium, iron, phosphorous and calcium, and a healthy amount of protein.
How Does a Moringa Detox Help Your Body?
Before you decide whether the moringa detox is right for you, you need to know which health benefits it will bring. There are an impressive number of different potential effects, including:
– Stabilising blood sugar levels.
– Slowing down physical signs of ageing.
– Providing your body with antioxidants.
– Encouraging normal blood pressure.
– Boosting energy
– Helping you to control cravings and lose weight.
– … and more!
Some Tips for Your Detox
If you’re ready to put a moringa detox on your New Year to-do list, here are a few key points to help you make the most of it. Firstly, set aside a 2-3 week period and commit to having several moringa capsules or moringa brewed mugs of tea each day.
Secondly, make sure the rest of your diet is healthy, moderate and clean – focus on foods such as vegetables, white meat and fish. Absolutely avoid putting any more alcohol, caffeine or processed food into your body! In particular, you’ll want to add foods that support your liver to your daily diet, which can include dark green vegetables, citrus fruit, beetroot and carrots.
All told, the small amount of preparation and effort that’s required is well worth it for such a long and diverse list of health benefits. And, if you are one of the many people who indulged just a little too much this Christmas, you’ll be able to turn over a new leaf come January and quickly feel the benefits.
