DETOXIFICATION

Your body has it’s own built-in systems to take care of itself! When it comes to detoxification, the liver is our best friend. This organ works to remove toxins by taking dangerous substances and converting them to something we can eliminate from the body completely. Signs that your body isn’t detoxing itself well are water retention, acne, inflamed skin, constipation, increased body fat, low energy, and even increased temper! I don’t know about you, but I don’t want any of that!

Substances that the liver removes are alcohol, caffeine, pesticides, trans-fats, refined sugars, and some viruses and hormones (like cholesterol and estrogen). It can be critical to support the liver through nutrition and supplementation so that these are removed effectively!

We have a couple of great options for you to try that are safe on Stage 1 of ShiftSetGo!

Total Tea is caffeine free, non-GMO, gluten free, kosher certified, vegan, and promotes whole body wellness and function through eliminating toxic build up, bloating, and constipation.

Wing Man by Hum is a great liver support supplement! Milk thistle, dandelion, and artichoke leaf work to detoxify and protect the liver, improve liver function, and lower cholesterol.

Did you know?

Your liver cleanses your blood 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year NONSTOP. Anything you inhaled, digested or absorbed through the skin has to be filtered by your liver in case it might be dangerous for your body. Be sure to support it!
