When carried out once a week, detoxification (or "detox") programs flush toxins from the body. You can perform this fairly simple process using many ingredients found lying around the house. One effective method employs Certo—a pectin ingredient used in jellies and jams—and citrus fruits, which can provide relief for individuals suffering from metabolic disorders. Because we all store various biological toxins and need to remove them in order to feel our best, however, everyone can benefit from a weekly detox.
Things You'll Need
- 2 lemons
- 1 tbsp. maple syrup
- Cayenne pepper
- 2 Cups of lukewarm Water
Squeeze the lemons, mixing the juice with maple syrup and a pinch of the Cayenne pepper.
Add the above combination to the lukewarm water and one tablespoon of Certo; mix thoroughly in the blender.
Drink the concoction in the morning on an empty stomach, and then fast the remainder of the day. (You can snack on leafy vegetables and carrot sticks if you like.) Remember to drink plenty of water, and do not maintain this routine for more than 24 hours. Perform this detox once a week for optimum biological results.
