cleansing

Cleanse programs can be time-consuming and costly, but smoothies can serve as an easy, gentle, everyday cleanse. While so many foods out there contain unhealthy hidden ingredients, our pure superfoods provide you with healthy nutrients for increased weight control, restored energy, improved skin, and bountiful health benefits. These help you feel full longer and get the nourishment you need, which can decrease cravings for those bad-for-you foods.

To make the most out of a “cleansing” smoothie, aim for ingredients that are high in fiber, low in sugar, and don’t be afraid to sneak in some purifying greens. Drink plenty of water, too! The more efficient our elimination process, the cleaner our bodies run!

Navitas Naturals Lucuma Powder, Wheatgrass Powder and Chia products each have unique cleansing benefits. A flavorful fruit powder, Lucuma provides the sweetness we crave in smoothies (and desserts), with a very low sugar content. Cutting back on sugars is a well-researched way to effectively cleanse the body, release excess weight, and promote healthy skin.

A potent natural source of chlorophyll (the green “blood” of plants), wheatgrass assists in increasing circulation, promotes the detoxification of impurities, neutralizes acids and toxins, and replenishes cells with essential minerals and vitamins. In just one serving (2 tablespoons), chia provides almost a quarter of our recommended daily allowance of fiber.

Chia Seeds / Powder — When soaked in water, chia seeds soak up the fluid around them, bulking up to 9 times their weight, creating a fibrous (and flavorless) filling agent that not only creates a fun texture in smoothies, but also keeps the stomach full … all at a very low calorie cost.

Yacon Slices / Syrup — With a fraction of the calories of fruits or other syrups like agave, yacon serves as an excellent way to sweeten foods. Plus, its sugars are primarily composed of inulin, which passes through the body undigested without spiking blood sugar.

Hemp Powder — High in both complete protein and fiber to help keep your intestinal track functioning properly, hemp rebuilds the body and makes smoothies more satisfying.

Additional cleansing foods include lemon, parsley, dark leafy greens, algaes (chlorella), cranberries, stevia, apples, cucumber, grapefruit, organic berries, green tea, burdock root and flaxseed powder.
