How to detoxify the body and maintain a healthy gut for healthy skin
1 GIVE YOUR BODY GOOD BACTERIA
Good gut health starts with prebiotics, a type of fiber that feeds the good bacteria in your gut called probiotics. Probiotics are live bacteria or yeast that protect us. When our gut is lacking in these, we can feel bloated or even get sick more often.
The gut is where 70% of your immune system lies. If we’re not getting enough nutrients or digesting our food properly due to poor gut health, our skin won’t receive the nutrition it needs to support it. This affects skin elasticity and collagen production, leading to dull skin with uneven tone. An abundance of bad bacteria can contribute significantly to skin problems from acne, rosacea, premature aging of the skin, and poor energy levels among other health issues. Studies show that where there is gut inflammation, there will be skin inflammation.
To achieve a healthy gut, we need to support good bacteria in our digestive system. How? Give your body probiotics and prebiotics. Consume more lacto-fermented foods. These are found in yoghurts, kefir, kombucha, miso, and probiotic drinks. Consume more prebiotics. These are found in artichokes, bananas, asparagus, onions, and oats. 2 DETOX WITH ANTIOXIDANTS
You can enhance your body’s natural detoxification system by giving it antioxidants that protect your cells against damage caused by free radicals such as pollutants, UV, tobacco, and alcohol. Eating a diet rich in antioxidants can help your body fight oxidative stress caused by free radicals and other toxins that accelerate the skin’s aging and increase your risk of disease.
How? Increase your antioxidant intake.
You can find antioxidants in lemons, grapes, green tee, cocoa, and nuts.
You can also take L’or Divin to help you boost your antioxidant intake and fight free radicals. In just one stick of L’or Divin, the polyphenols (antioxidants) amount to 7,2 kilos (15, 87lbs) of grape seeds! Imagine how many grapes you would have to consume to gain the same antioxidant benefits.
Don’t forget to drink lots of water, get adequate sleep, and exercise regularly to help your body’s detoxification process. . .
