It's Feel Good February, which means there's never been a better time to chat about all things health and detoxes. As you may already know, your body is well designed to get rid of toxins and waste. However, with age and an unhealthy diet, exposure to substances, stress, and, let's not forget, environmental toxins, your body's natural detoxification pathways may slow down and feel the full weight of your lifestyle choices. Want to get your body firing on all cylinders again? Here are six simple tips to support healthy detoxification:

1. Limit alcohol

Not what you wanted to hear after Christmas and New Year, or maybe it is. Either way, there's a reason why alcohol is brought up time after time, no matter what health topic you read about. Excessive drinking is harmful to your body and results in many health problems. It can severely damage your liver, have a detrimental impact on sleep, and so on. Limit your weekly drinks and watch your body reap the benefits!

2. Prioritise Sleep

We spend a third of our life sleeping. It's the body's mechanism for recovery. It's like charging your phone. When running low, your performance is impaired. Sleep affects both cognitive and physical performance. Thinking, energy, mood, well, pretty much anything you can think of is affected. Adequate sleep allows your brain to recharge and remove toxins accumulated throughout the day.

3. Get Serious About Water

Water does more than quench your thirst on a hot day; it's essential to life. Not only is it paramount to many bodily processes, but it also detoxifies your body by removing waste products. Not sure how hydrated you actually are? Check out this helpful urine colour chart by clicking here.

4. Avoid Processed Foods

Sugar and processed foods are linked to chronic diseases and obesity. These diseases can impact your own body's ability to detoxify itself. Eat more fruits and vegetables since they contain vitamins and minerals that will aid in preventing disease.

5. Look After Your Liver

The liver is your body's detoxification system. It filters your blood and removes toxic substances, which is why it's so important to keep your liver healthy. By ridding your liver of excess fat and harmful substances, you can help it work optimally. A few ingredients are shown to support liver health: Inositol, Choline, Methionine, L-Cysteine & the electrolyte Potassium.

6. Exercise

Moving your body and staying active will positively impact your body's own ability to detoxify itself. But why? Because it helps reduce inflammation. Too much inflammation impairs your ability to function properly, weakening your body's systems and ability to protect itself against diseases.
