Daily detox tips for a fresh 2016

HAVE you spent your Christmas break indulging in the finer things in life; decadent food and drink, lazy days and large nights, coupled with minimal physical activity?

If your answer is yes, it's time to shake off the festive season and spark up for the new year ahead!

The implementation of daily detox measures can help to counteract the less than healthy choices we're all guilty of making during the holidays.

Instead of relying on intense, short-lived and often hard-to-maintain detox fads, you can begin incorporating a few changes into every day that will assist you to detox your body every single day of your life.

Here's our top five hot tips to get you started:

1. Drink hot lemon water

Kick-start the detoxing process first thing in the morning by drinking a cup of warm water with lemon and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper.

2. Fresh juice

Try a blend of lemon juice, kale, spinach, spirulina, and ginger - the more greens the better. Allow your body to absorb the fresh nutrients more quickly by drinking this blend on an empty stomach.

3. Add apple cider vinegar

Along with a host of other benefits, apple cider vinegar alkalizes the body and helps detox the liver. Buy the raw, unfiltered and organic variety.

4. Sweat it out

Sweating is the key to expelling toxins from the body. Whether you use an infrared sauna (which assists to remove heavy metal toxins stored in fat tissues), take a yoga or gym class, or exercise with extra layers on to help increase body temperature and cause perspiration.

5. Get a massage

Massages increase circulation, stimulate the lymphatic system and remove toxic build-up from the body. They also feel pretty great and require minimal effort!
