Pesticides cover nearly 70% of all products.
Even though our body has a natural detoxifying system, the toxins we're exposed to in the 21st century are anything but natural. Long-term exposure to unnatural air, water, and food contaminants wear the body down and cause serious health issues. But giving your body a cleansing boost is only one of the many benefits of detoxing.
Here's how detoxing this summer can decrease stress, improve immunity, give you glowing skin and so much more.
#1 Managing Summer Stress
We could all use help relieving stressors like the presidential election, social unrest, and looming pandemic.
One of the key ingredients in our Detox Cleanser is Gotu kola, a herb with a long history in Ayurveda medicine. It's known to help balance the nervous system resulting in being able to better manage stressors.
A 2016 animal study found that Gotu kola has an acute anti-anxiety effect, especially on subjects that are sleep-deprived. Another human study also concluded that Gotu kola has antidepressant-like effects. The study focused on people with a generalized anxiety disorder.
Another animal study also found that Gotu kola improves symptoms of behavioral depression.
Gotu kola regulates neurotransmitters like gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). GABA's primary role is reducing neuronal excitability. Supplementing with Gotu kola can help create a sense of calm.
#2 Improved Immunity
It's smart to welcome anything that will give your immune system a boost during the pandemic. Many studies prove that taking garlic decreases your susceptibility to the common cold. Garlic also has the capability to fight against infectious diseases.
Two separate studies also found that milk thistle extract can improve the immune response in humans and animals. Milk thistle is one of the key ingredients in our detox. This is because milk thistle increases the production of the body's cells and compounds.
Several scientists support milk thistle's immune-boosting capabilities. They've even gone as far as to label the herb as a remedy against infectious diseases.
#3 Glowing Summer Skin
Many summer beauty products seem to promise sun-kissed, dewy mermaid-like skin. But wouldn't it be great if your skin just looked that way? Giving you a glowing look without the fuss?
Antioxidants and natural anti-inflammatory chemicals are vital to skin reliance, healing, and aging. High concentrations of these are found in fruits, veggies, and herbs. Our Detox Cleanser packs the benefits of eating pounds of produce into one capsule.
For example, one study on milk thistle found that taking it for eight consecutive weeks decreased acne by 53%. Garlic is another staple in herbalism. It's been used for its antibacterial properties for centuries. Which is why it's excellent to supplement if you're trying to clear up bacteria-caused acne.
Gotu kola has also been used by naturopaths for wound healing for centuries. The herb's natural terpenes, asiaticoside, and madecassoside stimulate collagen production. They also support the body's natural production of connective tissue. Along with aiding in the development of blood vessels.
Separate studies also found that Gotu kola improves circulation and fluid retention. This can decrease the visual symptoms of superficial venous disease with varicose veins and can also decrease the visibility of stretch marks.
All of these herbs also help protect cells against oxidative damage, which is a key driver behind aging.
#4 Confidence in Summer Clothes
Scientists predict record-breaking heat across the planet this summer. So if you plan to go outside, it's unlikely that you'll be able to completely avoid showing at least a little bit of skin. People with irritable bowel system or who are prone to constipation and bloating especially struggle with this.
Psyllium has been used as a laxative commercially for decades, but what you might not know about it is that it's also a prebiotic.
Prebiotics are compounds that help your gut harvest colonies of probiotics. The microbiome is starting to be recognized as the body's “second brain” and could be the key to immune function, tissue growth, aging, mood and so much more!
As a laxative Psyllium works by absorbing the water in your intestines. This creates a gel-like substance that moves through the digestive tract, pushing out lingering waste. Used regularly, it can promote regularity.
It's just essential that you drink plenty of water while taking Psyllium to experience the full effects.
#5 Energy and Focus for Summer Projects
When your backed-up or constipated it directly impacts your metabolism and energy level. But psyllium isn't the only component of our Detox Cleanser that will get you energized and focused this summer.
Milk thistle has historically been used as a natural remedy against Alzheimer's due to its ability to reduce amyloid plaques. Animal studies found that the antioxidants in milk thistle could also help prevent mental decay and boost brain function. Garlic has also been historically used to fight fatigue and improve labor capacity, and many animal studies support this.
Gotu kola has also been studied to improve cognition and memory. One study administered Gotu kola to patients after they had a stroke. Scientists found that the herb improved cognition and the memory of participants.
