Strengthen Your Liver and Kidneys With This Powerful Smoothie

Much is talked about detox diets and recipes. However, not everybody knows exactly how they can help their bodies.

Detoxication is any process done in the body that aims to eliminate or reduce the activity of chemical substances or molecules strange to the body.

The main form of contact with these substances is through breathing, as is the case when we inhale the smoke of cars and cigarettes, through the skin, by makeup, and through eating, where chemical compounds, such as agrochemicals and pesticides found on foods are absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract.

The body has a sophisticated way to eliminate these toxins, which involves the liver, kidneys, digestive system, skin, and lungs.

However, because of the modern way of life, sometimes this function has its capacity reduced.

So it is necessary to stimulate the natural capacity of eliminating undesirable and useless substances by using juices that combine powerful ingredients.

In today’s video, we will teach you the recipe of a powerful detox juice that uses carrot and cucumber and can strengthen organs such as the kidneys and liver, responsible for the function of filtrating and eliminating harmful substances from the body.

But, what do these two ingredients have that is so special?

Carrots are rich in minerals, vitamins A, B, C, and E, and potent antioxidants that improve lung, kidney and liver function, and also help prevent different types of cancer.

Another benefit that carrots offer is that they help treat constipation, prevent stone formation in the kidneys, and also purify the intestines, eliminating toxins and helping the correct absorption of nutrients.

When we eat it raw, it gives us the necessary enzymes to regulate the digestive system.

Cucumber is an excellent food for the liver, being considered one of the best natural diuretics. It also fights liver fat and other inflammatory actions.

Because it contains beta carotene, vitamin C, flavonoids, and quercetin, cucumbers protect us against many chronic diseases.

Its soluble fibers promote liver health, besides helping clean the intestine and making us feel more satiated.

How Your Diet Can Affect Your Mood and Sleep (Nutritional Psychiatry)

You know those days where everything seems bad?

Stress, irritability, tiredness, and even depression can be signs of bad eating. Did you know that?

Just like sleep can affect our eating, our eating also can affect our mood. We even made a video about what foods improve sleep and mood, so if that’s your problem, click on the video to learn more about them.

In cases of fatigue, worry and tiredness, the body seems to ask for a chemical reward in the form of serotonin, a neurotransmitter responsible for the sensation of wellness, produced through the consumption of sugar and fat.

Have you ever noticed that, on days when you are anxious about something, you end up eating more, and sometimes even compulsively?

We also have a video on our channel about what food can help you in cases of anxiety and depression. Have you watched it yet?

The fact is that, in the last 10 years, many doctors, dietitians, and psychiatrists have been investigating how much our eating habits contribute to our mental states of euphoria and sadness.

With all the studies, a new field was born: nutritional psychiatry. Isn’t it interesting?

But it doesn’t relate only to our mind: our intestines can also be harmed when we don’t eat correctly.

We also have a video about the link between these two organs. Watch it, you will like to learn more!

Eating bad damages the brain through a process known as oxidative stress, which is the release of free radicals of oxygen in the body, something that happens naturally and builds up as we age. An unbalanced diet ends up accelerating this buildup.

On the other hand, things that are good to the brain are anti-inflammatory, simple fats (monounsaturated or polyunsaturated) and antioxidant foods, like fruits, vegetables and nuts.

These foods have a restorative effect on the brain, protecting it from oxidative stress and inflammation that affects the balance of neurotransmitters, responsible for regulating our emotions. Interesting, right?

To the researchers, fats and sugar are bad for us, not because they make us sad when we gain weight and feel bad about the numbers on the scale, but because our eating habits make us get sick, reduce our immune system and end up affecting our mental health.

Now, tell us, have you done a diet that made you less anxious and sad?

The Best Digestive Enzymes to Build a Stronger Gut

In a recent video, we talked about how digestive enzymes affect our health.

Our enzymes are so important to the body that, if they are in a deficit, our digestive and nutrient absorption capacities are reduced, causing many health issues;

Digestive enzymes are produced and secreted by the mouth, stomach, pancreas, gallbladder, and intestines, and they help with the digestive process so that the nutrients of foods can become bioavailable. Did you know that? 

For them to work correctly, it depends on the levels of mental and physical stress, the intracellular, extracellular and bodily environment, and also the level of toxins in the body.

The lack of some digestive enzymes is linked to some diagnosis, such as dysbiosis, parasites, food intolerance, malabsorption syndrome and others.

Their lack may cause chronic inflammatory processes and autoimmune diseases.

So, we will show you now the main digestive enzymes and how to supplement them.

Protease
Lipase
Amylase
Pepsin
Pancreatin
Bromelain
Papain
Betaine

Phew! There are so many, aren’t there?

And these are only the main ones. If you suffer from any of these issues, talk to a doctor or dietitian so they can help you choose the best enzymes for your case.

But, if you suspect you have a deficiency of one of them, just buy the ready-to-take capsules.

Making sure that your digestion is working correctly is one of the best ways of ensuring that your whole body is healthy.

After all, nutrients, when broken down and absorbed, result in a well-nourished body.

And good nourishment is nothing more than a synonym of good health.

Many people have the habit of drinking caffeine right after waking up, as a means of waking up the brain and getting that energy boost to start their days.

Could Gelatin Get Rid of Joint Pain in Just Seven Days?

We have talked many times on our channel about how to treat knee and joint pains naturally, right? Do you suffer from this problem?

Osteoarthritis, commonly known as arthrosis, is nothing more than a degeneration of the joints, which causes a lot of pain and limits movements.

Have you ever thought about how people treated this kind of problem in the past? Many people opted for making a mixture of water and flavorless gelatin.

For many, drinking this mixture for some time not only brought relief  to the symptoms of arthrosis but also improved mobility. Isn’t it curious?

The fact is that gelatin contains collagen, a very important substance for our skin, cartilage, and muscles.

It can be found almost anywhere in our bodies, not only in bones.

However, according to the experts, gelatin has a very small amount of this protein, compared to what we need to prevent joint problems.

And there is also an issue with the collagen not being well absorbed by the body since it is not hydrolyzed.

You certainly must have heard that hydrolyzed collagen is great for the skin and bones, right? But, since the collagen in gelatin is not hydrolized, its absorption is very low.

That way, there is no proof that gelatin, by itself, can control or prevent joint issues.

The only collagen that is good to the joints is type II collagen, which is the main structural protein found in cartilage.

The collagen gives resistance, traction, and firmness to the cartilaginous tissue.

The type 2 collagen supplement is a 100% natural product obtained by using the cold extraction method on chicken sternum, a structure rich in this type of collagen.

By acting together with the immune system, type II collagen contributes to reducing pain and inflammation.

So, if you suffer from these symptoms, search for a type 2 collagen supplement to improve your life.

If you have any doubts, talk to an expert to get orientation.
