At Detoxify, we take a strong "science-first" approach when creating our fast-acting herbal cleanses. After years of research, our formulas are specifically designed to get the most from Detoxify’s line of full body cleansing products. So, what exactly are the benefits of an herbal cleanse? We're glad you asked.
When to Cleanse?
The ideal time to detox varies from person to person. For some, the need to do a cleanse is urgent and based on a specific situation, such as overindulging on vacation or letting healthy habits slide a little. Science also suggests it may be wise for women to detoxify when they're ovulating. During this window, your liver is already working overtime to keep hormone levels in check, and backup is appreciated.
For many, though, periodic cleansing at regular intervals is simply part of their overall health and wellness routine. Even if you eat the cleanest diet known to man, your body is still regularly subjected to environmental pollutants and other toxins.
Detoxify Herbal Cleanses
While your body continuously removes toxins and impurities, the level of those elements in your system depends on several factors: environment, diet, and lifestyle (for starters!). While your body can efficiently remove unwanted substances, sometimes (a lot of the time) a little help makes a big difference.
Detoxify herbal cleanses use a combination of herbs, vitamins, and minerals, known to help improve your body’s natural cleansing function. Depending on your specific situation, choosing your Detoxify herbal cleanse is based on answering these questions:
- What level of toxins are you cleansing — average, high, or maximum?
- Are you looking for one-day or multi-day cleanse?
- Are you interested in short-term (three to four hours) or long-term results?
- Is this a one-time cleansing need or part of your periodic cleansing routine?
- Finally, how would you like to take your cleanse — drink, shooter, or capsule?
Whichever herbal cleanse you choose, with Detoxify cleanses, you can count on at least nine herbal cleanse benefits regardless of the option you choose.
9 Benefits of Herbal Cleanses
1. Sustained Energy
Your life is meant to be vibrant, but your energy levels are sometimes not what you want them to be. The sluggishness you feel can be attributed to your body lacking necessary nutrients needed to keep it up and running at usual speed. Using an appropriate herbal cleanse, you can provide your body with the nutritional support it needs and boost your energy levels in the process.
Starting your day with a cup or two (or three) of coffee might not be the most healthy option. Instead, an herbal cleanse can also provide relief from the blood sugar roller coaster kickstarted by caffeinated drinks. Got a sweet tooth? That may be zapping your energy, too. Both caffeine and sugar cause your blood sugar to spike and crash, spike and crash, spike and — you get it. This causes your energy to rise and fall as well. A regular cleanse helps your body become balanced and more consistent by eliminating these peaks and valleys.
2. Increased Mental Focus
Many toxins are fat-soluble, meaning they tend to gravitate toward the brain, resulting in foggy thinking. An herbal cleanse can help to reduce the buildup of heavy metals, solvents, and other toxins accumulating in the brain. The results? Having the clarity of thought and mental focus you need.
3. Nourished Skin
The skin is an organ, and more than that, it is the primary organ in eliminating toxins. When the body is overrun with toxins, the skin takes on the brunt of the work, expelling excess toxins through the pores and dermis. The toxins tend to diminish the skin's natural glow, but have no fear. The right cleanse can help breathe vitality back into your skin, resulting in a brighter and smoother complexion.
4. Toxic Overload
Toxic overload is a symptom of pollution and lifestyle and dietary shifts through the years.1 It occurs when your biological detoxification systems become overwhelmed by the level of toxins in your body and cannot quickly dispel them. Dietary cleanses help to clear out the excess toxins, preventing real damage from happening.
5. Healthy Joints
Toxins build up throughout the body, and when they collect in certain areas, they can cause inflammation and discomfort.2 The joints are where environmental toxins, especially those from household chemicals and cleaners, tend to gather. An herbal cleanse helps clear excess toxins, allowing your body to expel the rest through natural detoxification processes.
6. Restful Sleep
The removal of toxins results in better brain and body function, allowing you to fall into normal rhythms.3 When your body aches because of excess chemicals, it is hard to rest. Through long-term herbal cleanses, it is possible to relax your system and improve your quality of sleep.
7. Reduced Inflammation
The ingredients in herbal cleanses often boast anti-inflammatory properties. If you experience discomfort from chronic or periodic inflammation, an herbal cleanse can help reduce your symptoms. It works by limiting the number of free radicals in your body, which if left unchecked, can lead to inflammation and, in turn, contribute to a host of chronic conditions and diseases such as:
- Type-2 diabetes
- Heart disease
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases
8. Occasional Bloating
One of the leading causes of occasional bloating is an overworked liver. Your liver works tirelessly to remove toxins from your system, but excess toxins inflame the gut and body when overloaded. A variety of foods are extra difficult for your body to break down, such as processed foods and those that are high in sugar and/or fat. If you enjoy a cocktail now and then, that alcohol can also tax your liver. In short, your liver needs to call for backup sometimes. An herbal cleanse helps relieve some of the liver's burdens and calms the system overall. Some actively cleanse the liver as well.
Many of the ingredients commonly found in herbal cleanses are stomach soothers, too. These powerful herbs aid the entire digestive process, which also provides relief from occasional bloating and constipation.
9. Improved Mood
Cleanses essentially help revitalize the system, alleviating pain and re-energizing the body. When your body feels better, you feel better. Therefore, herbal cleanses directly correlate to improved mood.
While your body is capable of detoxifying itself, evolution never accounted for the number of pollutants and chemicals people experience every day. Using a cleanse to support your system helps ensure its continued efficiency and leaves you happy and healthy.
