6 Wonderful Health Benefits of Detox Drinks

Detoxing one’s body is fast becoming a new trend in the world of fitness. While the word is shrouded with multiple ambiguities, those who  have incorporated detox drinks as an important component in their fitness routine can’t stop talking about its natural health benefits.

So what does detoxification really mean and why is it important?  As the name suggests, detoxing aims to help the body rid itself of toxins. The human body has many natural pathways to allow detoxification through liver, sweat, urine, faeces and more. But fast urbanization and exposure to pollutants, heavy metals, preservatives and pesticides has taken the average toxin consumption by human beings to an all-time high. These toxins get stored in tissues and cells of our bodies and manifest in harmful metabolical, reproductive and mental health effects. In serious cases, these toxins can also lead to cancerous consequences. By detoxing your body you help the vital organs cleanse themselves of the toxins, and enable the liver to function appropriately in excreting them.

Detox drinks are fast gaining recognition in the fitness world for preventing toxic overload and major health problems. Toxic intake which is not excreted properly may can cause bloating, gas, headaches, constipation, headaches, fatigues, nausea, skin problems, bad breath and bring your energy levels really down. Many Ayurvedic herbs, antioxidant rich fruits or vegetables full of fibre can be added to water or tea to make a perfect detox drink, which can naturally aid weight loss, improve liver functioning, and benefit your skin.

1. Help in weight loss

One of the best aspects of detox drinks is that it helps you lose weight naturally. Detox drinks offer a major boost to your metabolism, thus aiding weight loss. Some of the fruit based detox drinks that can help in weight loss are as follows:

Raspberries: Experts claim that the ketones in raspberries prevent weight gain to a great extent. Raspberries are also rich in Vitamin B and C which are good for skin as well.

Apple Cider Vinegar: The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar also increases your metabolism and speeds up weight loss. Its enzymes also aid in digestion.

Lemon: A lemon water detox can also help you shed those extra kilos, due to its richness in pectin fibre. This fibre helps you to feel full for a longer period of time.

Health Benefits of Sun Exposure: Vitamin D and Beyond

Several recent papers have discussed whether the health benefits of sun exposure are due to vitamin D production or other factors.  This question has been raised since randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of vitamin D do not always support the findings from observational studies that report reduced risk of disease for those with higher vitamin D levels. This issue was famously proposed by Philippe Autier and colleagues in a 2014 paper, in which he suggested that “reverse causality”, i.e., the disease state could cause low vitamin D levels, could explain the findings from observational studies.

Autier hypothesized,

“The discrepancy between observational and intervention studies suggests that low 25(OH)D is a marker of ill health. Inflammatory processes involved in disease occurrence and clinical course would reduce 25(OH)D, which would explain why low vitamin D status is reported in a wide range of disorders.”

In my opinion, there is little evidence to support that hypothesis. In fact, John Cannell, Michael Holick and I reviewed papers reporting changes in biomarkers of inflammation in vitamin D RCTs. We found that for those studies where the baseline vitamin D level was >20 ng/mL (50 nmol/L), there was only a 26% chance that a beneficial effect would be found. However, if the baseline level was <20 ng/mL, there was a 50% chance. Thus, the discrepancies between observational studies and RCTs may simply be due to the fact that many vitamin D RCTs have been poorly designed, conducted and analyzed.

Additional evidence that “reverse causality” does not explain the discrepancy between observational studies related to vitamin D and RCTs was provided on January 17, 2017. An observational study of children who developed respiratory tract infections in Norway found inflammatory markers did not predict 25(OH)D status. Despite increased inflammation, vitamin D levels did not change during illness and after recovery.

ADA: Updated Diabetic Neuropathy Treatment Guidelines Available

A new position statement on the prevention, treatment, and management of diabetic neuropathy has been released by a team of endocrinologists and neurologists in conjunction with the American Diabetes Association. This serves as an update to the last statement released by the ADA in 2005.

The statement contains recommendations for physicians on the overall prevention of diabetic neuropathy, highlighting prevention as a key component because of the lack of treatment to reverse this condition. Other types of diabetic neuropathies are discussed and proposes guidelines on their management and treatment. Lead author of the statement, Rodica Pop-Busui, MD, PhD, stated, “Our goal was to update the document so that it not only had the most up-to-date evidence, but also was easy to understand and relevant for primary care physicians.” The statement also intended to clarify the various forms of diabetic neuropathy that exist and present a more objective and easy-to-follow recommendation method.

A classification system describes the 3 main types of diabetic neuropathies: diffuse neuropathy, mononeuropathy, and radiculopathy or polyradiculopathy. Recommendations for overall prevention of diabetic neuropathy include the following:

  • In type 1 diabetes, work to effectively control glucose as soon as possible to prevent or delay the development of distal symmetric polyneuropathy (DSPN) and cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (CAN).
  • In type 2 diabetes, work to effectively control glucose to prevent or slow the progression of DSPN.
  • With type 2 diabetes, consider a multi factorial approach with targeting glycemia and other risk factors to prevent CAN.

 

Regarding pain management, the researchers recommend the following:

  • As the initial approach, consider either pregabalin or duloxetine.
  • Gabapentin can also be considered as an effective initial approach, but the patient’s socioeconomic status, comorbidities and potential drug interactions have to be taken into consideration.

Why Body Detoxification is Essential for Vibrant Health

Growing older is unavoidable. It’s a reality that each and every one of us will one day have to face as part of the collective human condition. And yet, nobody can escape the aging process entirely. The good news is that we can avoid some of the worst effects by simply making the right lifestyle choices. Wherever you currently fall on the age spectrum, there are immense benefits to be had from properly maintaining your body. Even if you’re just now starting down the path to better health. Just like your car requires regular maintenance in the form of routine oil changes, new tires, fresh coolant, and a thorough washing and detailing…so is regular body detoxification a necessity for optimal health.

Why You Need to Detox Your Body

The human body is much like a car’s engine in that it tends to get “gunked up” from constant exposure to toxins. Cleaning chemicals, environmental pollution, pharmaceutical drugs, processed foods – all these and more place a constant burden on the body’s natural cleansing systems. While these systems are designed to capture and flush as many toxins out of the body as possible, they can (and do) become overwhelmed by the immense, constant toxic onslaught of our modern world. This is why supplemental body detoxification is so important. In order to jump start your body’s flushing capacity to ensure that any and all toxic stragglers are removed as quickly and thoroughly as possible, it’s absolutely vital that you follow certain protocols on a routine basis.

Detoxification as a Way of Life

Detoxification is about a whole lot more than just a superficial notion of feeling “clean” as part of some trendy dieting fad. It’s about protecting your body against the very real and damaging effects of toxic buildup. For instance, did you know that peer-reviewed science continues to show that harboring toxins inside your body can trigger a wide array of health conditions – including everything from chronic fatigue and muscle and joint pain to brain disease and cancer?
