The kickoff month of 2017 is already winding down, and if your ultra-militant intentions to never so much as look at a chocolate chip again have you feeling overwhelmed by the wellness world’s elusive nature, we’ve got the cure. You see, the ultimate secrets to effervescent health are in working proactively, instead of reactively, to the environment’s toxins. This translates to utilizing some tried-and-true (tried, as in harnessed + celebrated for centuries) nutrients and supplements that will help cleanse your system each day. Imagine a daily combo of tune-ups and rituals that keep you glowing, regardless of what the universe has in store. In turn, you’ll feel light, agile, and inspired to tackle some bigger ideas than how to avoid the vending machine at work.
Oil of Oregano-Digestion is a major cornerstone in feeling truly fabulous, and this spicy extract of the oregano plant is a dynamite combo of antimicrobial and anti-infective. With one drop or two in a 16 ounce glass of water, oil of oregano has the ability to aid in boosting immunity while ridding the GI tract of bacteria and viruses, which can lead to malabsorption and persistent belly bloat. When your body’s second brain can’t decipher which nutrients it needs to thrive, it stubbornly hoards on to the bad stuff, which can result in unwanted weight gain. Skip all of that nonsense and reduce inflammation instead!
Vitamin B-Far from mainstream, the idea of methylation is one which proposes that our body has a natural detoxifying system. Unfortunately, the nature of our bustling-lives-in-the-big-city has caused our body’s reserve for detoxing to be lacking, leading many to have a B12 deficiency. Have your levels checked, especially when these are some of the most essential vitamins for your bod: think mood, energy levels, and nervous system function. Solid levels of the B vitamins can promote proper physical and mental clarity.
Magnesium-This INCREDIBLE mineral helps perform critical functions like maintaining muscle, controlling blood sugar and metabolism. Point blank, it’s an essential nutrient and too often than we’re happy to report, women are deficient. With proper levels of magnesium, we have better sleep, an alkalized body, and better enzyme function, which helps with the thousands of chemical reactions that occur in our body each day.
ACV shot (w/ lemon water)-We could all stand to give a little more love to our liver– its role in our body as CEO of Cleansing Operations make it pretty darn important. By starting your mornings with a shot of Apple Cider Vinegar in a mug of hot water and lemon, you will be helping regulate your body’s ph, and stimulate the hydrochloric acid in your stomach which is essential for digestion. It’s an ultimate AM cleanser before you even go out into the world.
Rotating Roughage– If you aren’t feeling giddy about the same.salad.selection. you’re feeding yourself everyday, chances are your body isn’t too stoked either. We need to diversify our plates and keep our bodies guessing not just for fun, but to ensure that the vast variety of nutrients are being properly absorbed and utilized. An easy change is to switch up your intake of raw and cooked foods. Raw cauliflower and hummus gives us amazing benefits, just as cooked cabbage can in our fave bone broth recipe.
This is just the tip of the iceberg! If you want to transform your routine to find ultimate wellness, we invite you to explore our programs to get all good +glowy!!!
