CLEANSE, DETOX & SPEED UP WEIGHT LOSS
What’s the most frustrating part of dieting? Easy: Stalling. Being stuck. Hitting a plateau.
A few months of hard work aren’t showing up and here’s a little SECRET as to why:
weight loss OFTEN stalls due to an inefficient gut and digestion issues.
Here’s a scenario we’ve all been through: ever feel “backed up” and nothing moves in the right direction until the ever-so-relieving “whoosh” occurs? Or you “detox” and then the weight seems to fly off?
That’s because the digestive system was FINALLY able to clear excess waste and do its job again. A healthy gut that can digest and assimilate nutrients more efficiently can:
It’s simple: a healthy gut will not only help weight loss come faster, but also increase daily energy levels and support whole body health.
WHAT IS "DETOXING" OR "CLEANSING" AND HOW DOES IT HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS?
Detoxing or cleansing has become a robust topic in the health and fitness circle. It seems every personal trainer recommends to “detox your system” before starting a new program. But why? What even is detoxing?
Everyday, we’re exposed to dozens of toxins, chemicals, and other pathogens in the air we breathe, food we eat, and water we drink. Overtime, this buildup can cause harmful negatives, such as:
Not very good things if your goal is to feel and look your absolute best. Detoxing is the actual act of using ingredients to help flush those toxins out, allowing your body to reset and reach its normal “balance” point again. Detoxing has a ton of health benefits, including benefiting your skin’s healthy glow and increasing mental alertness, but with Detox Nourish, we’re targeting the more efficient weight loss benefit that comes from a good detox.
Detox drinks, such as Detox Nourish, can boost your metabolism and energy levels to support healthy weight loss. Not only can detox drinks like Detox Nourish provide benefits, but some noteworthy “detoxing fruits” like grapefruit and pineapple, even contain digestive enzymes that help the body to utilize protein, carbs, and sugar. This improved utilization of nutrients from Detox Nourish or specific nutrient-dense foods boosts your metabolism, helping your body become more efficient at burning calories. and utilizing stored body fat as a fuel source.
Now, how exactly does Detox Nourish support natural detoxification and cleansing? By supporting your liver’s natural detoxification processes.
YOUR LIVER AND FAT BURNING, FEATURING: CHOLINE, INOSITOL, & L-CARNITINE
One of the biggest benefits of a detox, and one of the main mechanisms of action behind the Detox Nourish formula, is its ability to cleanse and recharge your liver. In a 7-day detoxification process, researchers observed how even a 7-day detox was able to help improve the rate at which the liver detoxes the body by 23%.
Your liver is one of the hardest working, and perhaps most underappreciated, organs in the body when it comes to whole body health and weight loss. It detoxifies our blood, store essential vitamins & minerals, and produces the bile needed to digest and properly utilize fat. Because of the liver’s ability to breakdown and utilize fat, maintaining a healthy liver is crucial if your goal is to lose weight.
Detox Nourish contains 4 ingredients that help detox the body and liver and one’s ability to burn fat: Choline, Inositol, & L-Carnitine.
Choline is a water soluble nutrient that plays a critical role in normal liver function, brain development, muscle movement, and maintaining an optimized metabolism. Choline’s main benefit in the body occurs during cellular methylation, which is used for detoxification.
With regards to detoxification, choline helps support liver detox by properly transporting fat that is stored in the liver to cells throughout the body. Choline actually cleanses the liver since its responsible for keeping the liver clear from fat build-up (A.K.A. Fatty Liver) that can build up and cause health issues tire the liver.
When one has lower levels of choline in the body, research has shown they are more susceptible to liver issues.
Inositol is a “pseudovitamin” and while not considered a “true” vitamin, inositol commonly referred to as Vitamin B8. It’s a small molecule structurally similar to glucose (and is also commonly referred to as a sugar alcohol) that is involved in cellular signalling.
Inositol also helps with detoxing and cleansing the liver by helping remove excess ammonia and other harmful buildup that the liver helps metabolize and remove from the bloodstream. What’s most interesting with inositol is the impressive synergy with choline when it comes to utilizing and burning stored fat. In one study, researchers saw that the combination helped prevent excess triglyceride (fat) and cholesterol buildup in the liver.
Together, choline and inositol help clear the “logjam” of fat build up in the liver, which can help you bust through that fat loss plateau, and make the process of actually burning stored fat more efficient.
Carnitine is an amino acid that helps transport fatty acids into mitochondria where there are used to carry out metabolic processes. When the fatty acids are used up by mitochondria, that is when fat is actually burned up and used as fuel. Because of this mechanism of action, carnitine has become a very popular inclusion in supplements where the main goal is to burn body fat. Which is good since Carnitine has been shown in human clinical research to help support weight loss, too.
Carnitine works synergistically with choline and inositol to increase fat burning. While choline and inositol help the liver churn through fat, carnitine takes those new found fatty acids and helps them to get utilized faster, allowing for an increase rate of fat burning. A study conducted in Germany saw that after 10 days of carnitine supplementation, the group receiving carnitine was shown to have a significantly increased ability to breakdown fat.
APPLE CIDER VINEGARS WEIGHT LOSS ABILITIES
The new kid on the block in the revamped and improved Detox Nourish formula is Apple Cider Vinegar. Apple cider vinegar has been plastered all over the news for its seemingly amazing abilities to make you healthier. From regulating blood sugar, to improving skin health, and even supporting weight loss, apple cider vinegar truly is an amazing ingredient and fits perfectly in Detox Nourish.
Apple cider vinegars purpose in Detox Nourish is its ability to support weight loss, so we’ll focus on how it aids that goal.
Blood Sugar Support
First, apple cider vinegar has been shown in research to help support and maintain healthy blood sugar levels. In one study, apple cider vinegar was shown to help reduce blood sugar levels by an average of 31% after a meal. What’s even better about this research, is that it was performed in healthy subjects, meaning, the benefits can be seen by pretty much all.
Not only does apple cider vinegar support healthy blood sugar, but it also may help increase levels of satiety, or the feeling of being full. Controlling and supporting one’s appetite is key when it comes to weight loss, and one study saw that drinking apple cider vinegar reduced daily caloric intake by the subjects anywhere from 200 - 275 calories per day.
Easy Weight Loss
Lastly, another study saw that just 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar per day over the course of 12 weeks helped subjects lose almost 4 lbs with zero change in lifestyle or diet. This is likely due to apple cider vinegar’s ability to support insulin sensitivity and reduce appetite. Obviously, apple cider vinegar coupled with a healthy diet and exercise will yield better results!
IMPROVING GUT EFFICIENCY WITH DIGESTIVE ENZYMES
Digestive enzymes primarily have one role in the body: to act as catalysts in speeding up specific chemical reactions in the body. For what we’re most interested in for the purpose of their inclusion in Detox Nourish is their ability to help break down larger molecules into more easily absorbed particles that the body can use easier and more efficiently. It goes without saying, improving absorption of what you is an important role in digestive health!
Detox Nourish contains four digestive enzymes to help your body better breakdown the protein, fats, and carbs you eat on a daily basis.
Protease is a proteolytic enzyme that aids in the breakdown and digestion of protein. These enzymes digest protein by aiding in the digestion process, breaking it down into smaller, more easily digestible amino acids.
Often times, a diet very high in protein can cause stomach issues such as increased bloating and gas. Most of the time, this is due to higher amounts of gastrointestinal inflammation from the stomach working overtime to digest higher amounts of protein. Proteolytic enzymes like protease help support a healthier inflammatory response of the body.
Protease and proteolytic enzymes also provide protection for the colon from free radicals. Due to their ability to help the body break down and digest protein, which helps support healthy inflammation in the gut and intestines, research suggests that these enzymes healthy inflammation in the colon.
Amylase is an enzyme that is necessary for the breakdown of carbohydrates. This enzyme helps to break down carbohydrates and convert to glucose for energy - which crucial for keeping natural energy levels optimised to tackle your daily goals. This makes sense, as amylase will break down the starches you eat into more easily digestible simple sugars.
Lipase plays a critical role in breaking down fat. Lipase is found naturally from pancreas, intestines and adipose tissue, where it helps hydrolyze fats like triglycerides into their component fatty acid and glycerol molecules where it is more readily usable by the body. Supplements containing lipase have been shown to help reduce bloating, gas and fullness following a meal, especially one high in fat.
Through clinical research, lipase has also been shown to support weight loss since it helps break down stored fat in the body. Scientists were able to make lipase enzymes work three times harder, increasing fat digestion from 15 percent to 45 percent of the time, which resulted in improved weight loss.
Bromelain an enzyme that specifically helps with digesting proteins and also has been shown to help support healthy inflammation in the gut.
There has been clinical research shows that bromelain can help reduce secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines that damage the gut lining. Because bromelain is very effective at healing the lining and tissues within your gut, bromelain is often supplemented specifically to heal ones gut.
