New year is the prime time of the year for that annual cleanse and detox. To kick start us into the new year, Herbal Reality will be focusing on how herbs can help bring back the spring in your step.
Living in a modern world means we have a higher level of exposure to environmental pollution, pharmaceutical drugs and convenience foods. So, it’s no wonder that cleansing and detoxing is becoming more popular.
The main organ in our body that supports natural cleansing and detoxification is the liver. There are many effective plants that will boost liver functioning and enhance these processes. Some of the best herbs for the job are those with a characteristically bitter taste and plants with a strong green colour, indicating the presence of chlorophyll, a natural antioxidant that protects our body from damaging free radicals.
