The Green Tea & Chia Drink – Simple, But Powerful!
- Green Tea
- Chia seeds
- Some Honey or Stevia if you want to go zero-calorie!
This drink seems simple, but is amazing in so many ways! It packs a powerful detoxing punch, thanks to it’s combination of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and the EGCG antioxidants of green tea. The drink in the picture is prepared using matcha green tea, which is a powder you mix with water and not a tea you steep. Good matcha is quite expensive, but feel free to use regular green tea too! Matcha is quite strong as well, so if you are not used to drinking it, by all means, go with regular green tea. The caffeine from the green tea is an important component, because it stimulates the hepatic nerves in the stomach, which stimulates the liver and helps it detox. This is the same reason coffee enemas work well.
The Sour Carrot and Turmeric Drink
- 60% Carrot Juice
- 20% Lemon Juice
- Some Honey
- Half a level teaspoon of turmeric
Another great detoxing drink! The detoxifying power of lemons, turmeric and honey, combined with the carotene from carrots. This drink tastes great and can be made in a large glass, instead of the shot glasses I used (come on, they are pretty). The antioxidants in turmeric are absorbed much better in combination with the lemon juice. Carrot juice has some antibacterial benefits, as does honey. This is important, because bacteria, like h.pylori, which more than 50% of people have can actually make your liver store toxins.
Rapid Weight Loss Results and Aging-Reversal After a Simple Detox Regimen?
If you’re looking for a way to quickly get rid of belly fat, massively improve skin complexion and feel 20 years younger, a diet regimen that has been getting a lot of rave reviews lately is Erin Nielsen’s program – it’s a simple regimen that aims to control your gene expression through the foods you eat, leading to quite a rapid transformation in about 70% of people. It works particularly well for women over ~40. We have known for many years that certain spices, foods and supplements have a direct effect on gene expression. Turmeric for example, alters the expression of more than 200 genes in the human body. Certain food combinations have the power to trigger hormones like leptin and turn off inflammatory gene expression. This is why you sometimes hear about people who have lost massive amounts of weight, just after a simple juice detox.
How Liver Detoxing Works and Why It’s Important
Some people look at detoxes and cleanses as over-hyped trends, but they are actually not. Many people will lose large amounts of belly fat, just after doing a proper liver detox with juices. The reason is actually very clear and it’s no mystery at all – your liver accumulates fat-soluble toxins and in order to keep them ‘diluted’ it has to hold on to a certain amount of fat. The way the toxins are eliminated is with the help of a phytonutrient molecule, which the drinks above have plenty of. Your body uses the phytonutrients to turn the ‘stuck’ fat-soluble toxins into water-soluble ones, which are then easily removed by the kidneys. This is why you may notice some increased peeing after drinking those two powerful drinks, especially on an empty stomach in the morning.
Since the liver is involved in virtually all vital processes, the benefits you will notice from those detoxing drinks are many. Better skin, improved mood and higher energy levels are usually the first benefits people notice. Increased metabolism is often experienced as well – you can feel this by your hands feeling warmer and your energy levels increasing!
