What is Detox?
Detoxification is the process in which our body gets rid of toxins, mostly through our liver and kidneys. However because of our daily exposure to heavy metals and chemicals, additional detoxification is important through lifestyle practices and diet.
Why is it important for our health?
Heavy metals and chemicals can damage our body in many ways. The most serious effect is DNA damage which can lead to severe diseases like cancer.
If you notice a lack of energy, emotional instability, inability to focus or pay attention, rashes on your skin gastrointestinal problems then it is a good idea to start detoxing so you can eliminate those symptoms and achieve overall health and balance.
What steps should we take to detox?
You can easily boost your body’s detoxification process by:
Using natural cleaning products (avoid chemicals)
Avoiding eating fish as it contains heavy metals (mercury)
Only drinking filtered water
Eating a lot of fruits and vegetables
Drinking Green Smoothies
Drinking Matcha Tea Daily
How does Matcha Tea help us detox?
Matcha tea has been found to aid in the detoxification process of the body through its chlorophyll and L-Theanine content. Heavy metals bind with chlorophyll and gets removed from the body faster. Additionally the powerful antioxidant effect of matcha helps to protect us from free radicals which can cause a lot of DNA damage. L-Theanine assists in repairing the DNA damage that has already taken place due to the toxin levels in the body.
