After a holiday season full of cakes, late night and extra cocktails, it’s normal our body needs a proper reset. Although you might be tempted to opt for a strict diet, this is certainly not the right way to start the new year, so it’s important to nourish yourself from inside out.
John Bell & Croyden gathered some tricks to get you back in track on the new year!
January is the perfect time to trade sparkling prosecco in herbal tea. Peppermint, camomile, ginger root and lemongrass are our favourites. Packed with antioxidants that help to detoxify from within, lemongrass has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties and it helps to cool down your upset stomach.
PUKKA Lemongrass & Ginger tea is a fresh blend of lemongrass, ginger and licorice, perfect to stimulate digestion, metabolism and relief fluid retention.
Kick-start your day with a warm cup of matcha tea. Matcha is rich in chlorophyll (that’s where the intense green colour comes from), and chlorophyll has many functions: it detoxifies and oxygenates the blood, cleansing the body of harmful toxins, enhancing mood and helping in concentration.
Rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, a cup of SUPER U Magic Matcha is ideal for use as part of a detox program. A great support all year long, this blend of premium Japanese Matcha, Lion’s Mane Mushroom, de-stressing adaptogen Ashwagandha Root & warming inflammatory Ginger, help you stay focused throughout a busy day.
Trying to supplement your detox with vitamins and minerals and bring your body back to a normal state, is crucial after holiday season. Try this NORDIQ Detox Complex: a unique blend of traditional organic and fresh freeze-dried botanicals along with nutritional co-factors to support liver detoxification. It includes selenium and vitamin C that protect cells from oxidative stress.
Catch some ZZZ's
Giving yourself a good night rest and ensuring adequate sleep is a must to support your body’s natural detoxification process. Sleep gives your body the time to repair, reduces stress levels, helps to strengthen your body’s immune system response and it regulates how to use food for energy. Lack of sleep doesn’t help these functions happen and toxins can easily build up.
Help yourself spraying this L:A BRUKET organic pillow mist that contains essential oils of mandarin, lavender and cedar. It creates a relaxing, soothing and calming atmosphere that helps to counteract stress and anxiety.
Keep your electrolytes high
After Christmas and New Year, you might have noticed you feel more tired and drained than usual. Drinking plenty of water regulates the body temperature, aids digestion and nutrient absorption, detoxifies by removing waste products and is hugely beneficial for weight loss. Keep yourself hydrated can reduce stress, improves your blood circulation flushing out toxins and impurities.
