So it’s a brand a new year and like many fit-minded optimists, you want to give your body a fresh start. You want to kick off your healthiest year ever by rebooting your digestive system, flushing out toxins, boosting your metabolism, and maybe shedding a couple of pounds. Hey, don’t we all?
But before you fork over your hard-earned dough (and we mean upwards of hundreds of dollars) for an expensive cleanse or detox program, consider this: your body is already equipped with natural detoxification pathways—a complex system of organs and processes, each with their own unique role. Your liver, kidneys, and intestines do most of the heavy lifting when it comes to metabolizing, filtering, and eliminating harmful by-products and waste in your system. Proper blood and lymph circulation also play a vital role, as well as our lungs and skin. Together, these systems help keep the body in perfect health when nourished and supported with the right lifestyle choices. Pretty amazeballs, right?
Here, we’ve compiled a list of expert-recommended, research supported strategies for optimizing your metabolism, digestion, and elimination for a longer, healthier life. The best part? You can implement them starting today, without forking over a dime.
