4 Day Mini Cleanse (Carrot, Beet, Cucumber, Greens)
The Four Day Mini cleanse gives all benefits of a regular Detox with the added bonus of variety. Many health experts recommend eating a wide array of colors to ensure you get the nutrients typically specific to each color or food. For example, Carrots and carotenoids have been shown to have anti-cancer effects, due to their antioxidant power in reducing free radicals in the body. Studies have found a possible link between diets rich in carotenoids and a lower risk of prostate cancer. Carrots also contain beta-carotene. Past studies have concluded that beta-carotene supplementation may reduce the risk of lung cancer. The antioxidant beta-carotene gives carrots their bright orange color. Beta-carotene is absorbed in the intestine and converted into vitamin A during digestion. Vitamin A deficiency can lead to xerophthalmia, a progressive eye disease that can damage normal vision and result in night blindness, or the inability to see in low light or darkness. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a lack of vitamin A is one of the main preventable causes of blindness in children.
Beetroots, commonly known as beets, are a popular root vegetable used in many cuisines around the world. Beets are packed with essential vitamins, minerals and plant compounds, some of which have medicinal properties. Heart disease, including heart attacks, heart failure and stroke, is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. And high blood pressure is one of the leading risk factors for the development of these conditions. Studies have shown that beets can significantly lower blood pressure by up to 4–10 mmHg over a period of only a few hours. These blood pressure-lowering effects are likely due to the high concentration of nitrates in beets. In your body, dietary nitrates are converted into nitric oxide, a molecule that dilates blood vessels, causing blood pressure to drop. Several studies suggest that dietary nitrates may enhance athletic performance by improving oxygen use and time to exhaustion. For this reason, beets are often used by athletes. Nitrates appear to affect physical performance by improving the efficiency of mitochondria, which are responsible for producing energy in your cells. Beets even help with inflammation. Chronic inflammation is associated with a number of diseases, such as obesity, heart disease, liver disease and cancer. Beets contain pigments called betalains, which may potentially possess a number of anti-inflammatory properties.
Beets also help with digestion. Dietary fiber is an important component of a healthy diet. It has been linked to many health benefits, including improved digestion.
One cup of beetroot contains 3.4 grams of fiber, making beets a good fiber source Fiber bypasses digestion and heads down to the colon, where it either feeds the good gut bacteria or adds bulk to stool. This can promote digestive health, keep you regular and prevent digestive conditions like constipation, inflammatory bowel disease and diverticulitis. Beets may even help with brain health. Mental and cognitive function naturally decline with age. For many, this decline can be significant and may result in conditions like dementia. A reduction in blood flow and oxygen supply to the brain may contribute to this decline. Interestingly, the nitrates in beets may improve mental and cognitive function by promoting the dilation of blood vessels and thus increasing blood flow to the brain. Beets have been shown to particularly improve blood flow to the frontal lobe of the brain, an area associated with higher-level thinking, such as decision making and working memory.
Cucumber although commonly thought to be a vegetable, is actually a fruit. It's high in beneficial nutrients, as well as certain plant compounds and antioxidants that may help treat and even prevent some conditions. Also, cucumbers are low in calories and contain a good amount of water and soluble fiber, making them ideal for promoting hydration and aiding in weight loss. Cucumbers are especially rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are molecules that block oxidation, a chemical reaction that forms highly reactive atoms with unpaired electrons known as free radicals. The accumulation of these harmful free radicals can lead to several types of chronic illness. In fact, oxidative stress caused by free radicals has been associated with cancer and heart, lung and autoimmune disease. However, fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants, like cucumbers, reduce the risk of these conditions. Cucumbers are low in calories, high in water and can be used as a low-calorie topping for many dishes. All of these may aid in weight loss.
Lastly, but certainly not least is Kale. Of all the super healthy greens, kale is king. It is one of the healthiest and most nutritious plant foods in existence. Kale is a popular vegetable and a member of the cabbage family. It is a cruciferous vegetable like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, collard greens and Brussels sprouts. Kale, like other leafy greens, is very high in antioxidants. These include beta-carotene and vitamin C, as well as various flavonoids and polyphenols. Oxidative damage is believed to be among the leading drivers of aging and many diseases, including cancer. But many substances that happen to be antioxidants also have other important functions. This includes the flavonoids quercetin and kaempferol, which all are found in relatively large amounts in kale. They have powerful heart-protective, blood pressure-lowering, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-depressant and anti-cancer effects, just to name a few. Kale is also extremely high in vitamin C, an antioxidant that has many important roles in the body. A single cup of raw kale actually contains more vitamin C than an orange. Kale can even help lower cholesterol, which may reduce the risk of heart disease. Cholesterol has many important functions in the body. For instance, it is used to make bile acids, which is are substances that help the body digest fats. The liver turns cholesterol into bile acids, which are then released into the digestive system whenever you eat a fatty meal. When all the fat has been absorbed and the bile acids have served their purpose, they are reabsorbed into the bloodstream and used again. Substances called bile acid sequestrants can bind bile acids in the digestive system and prevent them from being reabsorbed. This reduces the total amount of cholesterol in the body. Kale actually contains bile acid sequestrants, which can lower cholesterol levels. This might lead to a reduced risk of heart disease over time. One study found that drinking kale juice every day for 12 weeks increased HDL (the "good") cholesterol by 27% and lowered LDL levels by 10%, while also improving antioxidant status! Kale is one of best sources of Vitamin K in the World.
Vitamin K is an important nutrient, It is absolutely critical for blood clotting, and does this by "activating" certain proteins and giving them the ability to bind calcium. Kale is even loaded with compounds that are believed to have protective effects against cancer. Cancer is a terrible disease characterized by the uncontrolled growth of cells. However one of compounds in Kale is sulforaphane, a substance that has been shown to help fight the formation of cancer at the molecular level. It also contains a indole-3-carbinol, another substance that is believed to help prevent cancer. Many important minerals are found in kale, some of which are generally lacking in the modern diet. These include calcium, potassium and magnesium. All of which play a role in our overall health and wellness from bone health to lowering risks of heart disease. Kale is also high in lutein and zeaxanthin, nutrients that have been linked to a drastically reduced risk of macular degeneration and cataracts. In summation, as a nutrient-dense, low-calorie food, kale makes an excellent addition to a weight loss diet but more importantly it helps your body in a plethora of ways in order for it to operate at its highest level.
5 Day Reboot Cleanse (Turmeric, Carrot, Beet, Cucumber, Greens)
Added to this 5 Day Reboot cleanse is Turmeric. Turmeric may be the most effective nutritional supplement in existence. Many high-quality studies show that it has major benefits for your body and brain. Turmeric contains bioactive compounds with powerful medicinal properties. Turmeric is the spice that gives curry its yellow color.
It has been used in India for thousands of years as a spice and medicinal herb.
Recently, science has started to back up what Indians have known for a long time — it really does contain compounds with medicinal properties. These compounds are called curcuminoids, the most important of which is curcumin. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. Curcumin is strongly anti-inflammatory. In fact, it’s so powerful that it matches the effectiveness of some anti-inflammatory drugs, without the side effects. It blocks NF-kB, a molecule that travels into the nuclei of your cells and turns on genes related to inflammation. NF-kB is believed to play a major role in many chronic diseases. Without getting into the details (inflammation is extremely complicated), the key takeaway is that curcumin is a bioactive substance that fights inflammation at the molecular level. Curcumin is a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals due to its chemical structure. In addition, curcumin boosts the activity of your body's own antioxidant enzymes. In that way, curcumin delivers a one-two punch against free radicals. It blocks them directly, then enhances your body's own antioxidant defenses. Curcumin even boosts brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which is a type of growth hormone that functions in your brain. Many common brain disorders have been linked to decreased levels of this hormone, including depression and Alzheimer's disease. Interestingly, curcumin can increase brain levels of BDNF. By doing this, it may be effective in delaying or even reversing many brain diseases and age-related decreases in brain function. It may also improve memory and make you smarter, which seems logical given its effects on BDNF levels. It has even shown potential in treating depression. Depression is also linked to reduced levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and a shrinking hippocampus, a brain area with a role in learning and memory.
Curcumin boosts BDNF levels, potentially reversing some of these changes. There is also some evidence that curcumin can even help boost the brain neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. Curcumin has beneficial effects on several factors known to play a role in heart disease. It improves the function of the endothelium and is a potent anti-inflammatory agent and antioxidant. Ultimately, Curcumin leads to several changes on the molecular level that may even help prevent and perhaps treat cancer.
7 Day Complete Cleanse (Spurlina, Cayenne, Turmeric, Carrot, Beet, Cucumber, Greens)
In this 7 Day Complete Cleanse we added Spirulina and Cayenne. Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae that many people consider a superfood due to its excellent nutritional content and health benefits. Spirulina has a high protein and vitamin content, which makes it an excellent dietary supplement for people on vegetarian or vegan diets. Research suggests that spirulina has antioxidant and inflammation-fighting properties, as well as the ability to help regulate the immune system. The principle behind loosing weight is eating fewer calories than you ingest. Spirulina is a high-nutrient, low-calorie food that contains a lot of nutrition in a small amount of powder. Thus, introducing spirulina to your diet may help you lose weight without compromising nutrition. In 2018 Review Study found that spirulina supplementation significantly lowered people's fasting blood glucose levels. High fasting blood sugar is a common problem in people with diabetes type 1 and 2. This suggests that spirulina supplements may help people control diabetes. Similarly, A 2016 systematic review and meta-analysis suggests that taking spirulina supplements may have a positive impact on blood lipids, which are fats in the blood. In the study, spirulina was found to significantly reduce total cholesterol and lower LDL — "bad" — cholesterol while increasing HDL — "good" — cholesterol. Taking spirulina may even help boost a person's metabolism. A higher metabolic rate may make a person feel as if they have more energy. It may also increase the number of calories they burn each day, which may aid weight loss.
In a small-scale 2014 study, people who took 6 g of spirulina a day experienced beneficial metabolic effects, alongside weight loss and better health-related quality of life. In 2018 an article was written highlighting the potential role that spirulina could play in treating mood disorders. The theory is that spirulina is a source of tryptophan. Tryptophan is an amino acid that supports serotonin production. Serotonin plays an important role in mental health. People with certain mental health conditions, such as depression and anxiety, may have reduced levels of serotonin. So, taking tryptophan supplements to maintain healthful serotonin levels may play a role in supporting mental wellbeing. Showing that research proves spirulina has many benefits and can help with many different health conditions.
Cayenne peppers are a type of chili pepper. They belong to the nightshade family of flowering plants and are closely related to bell peppers and jalapeños. Cayenne peppers are a popular spice used in many different regional styles of cooking, and they have been used medicinally for thousands of years. These peppers boast an impressive nutrition profile, which includes a variety of antioxidants that are beneficial for your health. Capsaicin, the active ingredient in cayenne peppers, is what gives them their medicinal properties. It also gives them their hot taste. In fact, how hot a cayenne pepper is depends on its capsaicin content. The more capsaicin it contains, the hotter it is. The capsaicin in cayenne peppers has metabolism-boosting properties. It helps increase the amount of heat your body produces, making you burn more calories per day. It does this through a process called diet-induced thermogenesis, which causes an increase in your metabolism. In one study, people who ate a breakfast containing capsaicin and medium-chain triglyceride oil burned 51% more calories during that meal, compared to people who had neither for breakfast. Many studies show the capsaicin in cayenne peppers helps reduce hunger. More than likely because it reduces the production of the hunger hormone ghrelin.
Cayenne pepper may even help boost the stomach's defense against infections, increase digestive fluid production and help deliver enzymes to the stomach, aiding digestion. It does this by stimulating nerves in the stomach that signal for protection against injury. While some believe that spicy food may cause stomach ulcers, a review paper has shown that the capsaicin in cayenne peppers may actually help reduce the risk of stomach ulcers. Capsaicin even has powerful pain relief properties. It relieves pain by reducing the amount of substance P that your body produces. When less substance P is produced, pain signals can no longer reach the brain, and feelings of pain decrease. Capsaicin can even help reduce Psoriasis symptoms. Autoimmune diseases are conditions in which your body attacks itself. Psoriasis is an example of an autoimmune disease that appears as patches of red, itchy and scaly skin. Currently, there is no cure for psoriasis. However, capsaicin creams can help relieve itching and improve the appearance of psoriasis-affected areas. In summation, cayenne can be a great addition to jumpstart your diet or your metabolism. from cardiovascular disease and all cancers.
