Detox drinks can have a dramatic impact on your weight, health, skin and bloated tummy. I believe that to a certain extent we all know this, but our environment is not geared towards allowing us to live it. Detox drinks are the lifehack most recommended to getting the required 5-7 daily servings of fruits and vegetables into your body without giving up your current habits and lifestyle.
Detox Drinks, backed by science
In the US “most calories are consumed from processed foods”. It’s obvious that nutrition isn’t high on our list of priorities. There are no profitable patents involved in prescribing food so pharmaceuticals do not pay scientists to study it. Doctors receive on average only 23.9 contact hours of nutrition (range: 2–70 h) during medical school. School cafeterias are notorious for providing students with unhealthy lunches that are cheaper to purchase and distribute. Parents feeling overwhelmed and under informed struggle to create and implement healthy meal plans at home.
Restaurants and supermarkets prefer foods with a longer shelf life to maximize profits and supply foods that are in demand. However, the research we have today (including observational studies and some randomized controlled trials) tells us that we should be eating real foods and mostly plants.
So how do you reap all of the benefits of eating vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, whole grains and legumes without actually giving up the things you really enjoy eating?
Detox drinks allow you to target your individual nutritional needs and effectively deliver the fuel your body requires to look and function at its best.
