Greens, Cleansing, Detox


Greens

Greens sup­ple­ments are fruits, veg­eta­bles, algaes and/or grasses that have been processed into pow­dered form. Greens prod­ucts con­tain a vari­ety of nutri­ent rich foods like bar­ley grass, wheat grass, spir­ulina, chlorella, alfalfa, herbs, veg­eta­bles, legumes, and fruits. Greens sup­ple­ments that can pro­vide a con­ve­nient way of increas­ing your daily serv­ings of fruits and veg­eta­bles, while pro­vid­ing an array of vit­a­mins, min­er­als, fiber, and phy­tonu­tri­ents. Many Greens sup­ple­ments today, are also gluten free and GMO free.

Why take a greens sup­ple­ment? It’s said that due to inten­sive agri­cul­ture, the foods we eat are severely lack­ing in min­er­als, vit­a­mins, fiber, enzymes, carotenoids and antiox­i­dants. A good greens sup­ple­ment, like Barlean’s Greens (http://www.barleans.com/greens.asp), will sup­ply a con­cen­trated mea­sure of organ­i­cally grown nutri­ents, stripped and miss­ing from our mod­ern day foods, due to non sus­tain­able farm­ing prac­tices. There’s also the con­ve­nience fac­tor of being able to shake with water and go, or blend into your morn­ing smoothie.

Cleansing/Detox

When it comes to cleans­ing, the first ques­tion might be, “what is a cleanse?”, and the next ques­tion might be “why cleanse?”.

Since 1950 at least 70,000 new chem­i­cal com­pounds have been invented and dis­persed into our envi­ron­ment. Only a frac­tion of these have been tested for human tox­i­c­ity. We are, by default, con­duct­ing a mas­sive clin­i­cal tox­i­col­ogy trial, and our chil­dren and their chil­dren are the exper­i­men­tal ani­mals,” say Her­bert L. Needle­man, M.D. and Philip J. Lan­dri­gan, M.D., authors of Rais­ing Chil­dren Toxic Free.

There are a num­ber of rea­sons why peo­ple might decide to do a cleanse. Whether you’d like to help elim­i­nate tox­ins from your body, or maybe kick-start a diet, Fuel has a whole body cleanse option for you.

Cleans­ing can be an impor­tant adjunct to your per­sonal health regime — and help to kick start your weight loss efforts. With­out ques­tion, our envi­ron­ment and food sup­ply is chock full of toxic chem­i­cals and com­pounds, and reflec­tion of how our bod­ies are affected: in Canada in 2006, there were 4.1 mil­lion peo­ple suf­fer­ing with arthri­tis, in 2011 that num­ber was more than 4.7 mil­lion peo­ple, mostly women. In 2011, almost 2 mil­lion peo­ple had dia­betes & 2.5 mil­lion were strug­gling with asthma. 1 in 8 women will develop breast can­cer and over 1/2 mil­lion Cana­dian chil­dren are obese.

The fact is, the toxic com­pounds in our food, water and envi­rone­ment, are accu­mu­lat­ing in our bod­ies. Doing a whole body cleanse a cou­ple of times a year, could help your body to clear some of the toxic impu­ri­ties from your body. There are numer­ous cleans­ing prod­ucts on the mar­ket, one prod­uct our cus­tomers have seen god results with is a 2 week cleans­ing kit by Enzy­matic Ther­apy, called Whole Body Cleanse. As you might have guessed from the name of this prod­uct, it’s designed as a whole body cleanse.
