•FIBRE THE MAGIC SPONGE•
All cleansing begins in the colon - a happy gut = a happy body.
The main purpose of consuming fibre is elimination. Without fibre elimination is almost impossible.
All toxins from every part of the body end up daily in the colon BUT in order to eliminate, the body needs fibre.
There are two kinds of fibre: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fibre is found in fruit 🍉, beans, peas, oats, chia seeds etc. Insoluble fibre is found in greens, nuts, seeds, etc. Insoluble fibre acts as a sponge absorbing every piece of toxin it can find. It grabs the toxins and takes them out into the toilet. It is a magic sponge. If we do not consume fibre, most of the toxic waste accumulates in our body & sets us up for disease, aging & bad skin. We need to be eliminating daily. Just as we cannot clean a kitchen without a sponge, the human body cannot eliminate without fibre. If the body isn't eliminating, the first place it can eliminate through is our skin. Think spots, mucus etc. it needs to eliminate somehow.
Fibre can: •Strengthen a diseased heart.
•Fibre prevents many different cancers - it binds to carcinogens. •It can lessen the risk of diabetes.
•It can strengthen the immune system. •It keeps the bowels healthy.
•Encourages healthy intestinal bacteria. Feeds the good bacteria. •Helps curb overeating.
Not taking in enough fibre can also lead to premature aging.
Having at least one green smoothie per day is one sure way you are taking in enough roughage to pull all those toxins out of your body, keeping you healthy & beautiful. Flaxseed is also another great add on as it contains both soluble & insoluble fibre. Best to have them ground.
Green smoothies only take 5 minutes to make and are easy to clean up. If you consume way too much dairy, meat, poultry, processed meals etc. these contain zero fibre - in order to eliminate well you need to consume enough plant foods. For the sake of fibre and elimination, drink your green smoothies regularly. 🌱Think of fibre as your vacuum cleaner.
