While it’s indeed hard to resist foods like cheese cakes, ice creams and BBQ,  it’s easy to eat too much because of the comfort it brings you. In addition to excessive energy intake, which increases the risk of obesity, extra food also adds a burden to your gut and leads to problems such as indigestion and constipation. This allows for the accumulation of toxins in your body, which adversely affects your health.

What are toxins? Western medicine practitioners agrees that “toxics” are harmful substances to human body. While toxics include pressure and pollution from the external environment along with bacteria and viruses, waste produced from the metabolism of substances like fats, sugar, and proteins also count as toxics. Toxins are waste resulting from the metabolism of the human body, such as feces, carbon dioxide, heavy metals, and free radicals. Immunity can be strengthened if toxins are removed. There are already detoxification mechanisms in the body, but the accumulation of toxins is just too fast for all of them to be eliminated completely. On the other hand, foods containing excessive additives and bad eating habits clog up detoxification channels. Follow the few points below if you want to clean up your body and have the toxins removed to maintain good health: Sweat with Regular Exercise Skin is our body’s largest detoxification channel. Completing more workouts and sweating help the body eliminate toxins via the skin. However, remember to avoid vigorous exercise if it’s outside your normal routine. Exercise according to your capability and drink more water before and after workouts. Water is essential for the human body, as detoxification through sweating and urination is possible only when there is plenty of water in the body. Digest Well by Eating Slowly and Chewing Thoroughly Do not eat too fast just because you are faced with so many delicious dishes. Eating too fast and not chewing food well enough cause insufficient secretion of digestive fluid, which results in poor digestion. After 20 minutes, when the blood sugar levels rise to a certain degree, the brain will signal you to stop eating to prevent overeating. Also, chewing more helps secrete more saliva, which neutralizes various toxic substances. This triggers a positive chain reaction and more toxins can be removed. Consume More Fresh Foods that Promote Detoxification As for your diet, consuming more fresh and organic foods and avoiding processed foods and instant food products lower the intake of toxins like preservatives and coloring substances. You may also want to control your intake of salt because excessive consumption leads to urinary and sweat retention, accumulating water in the body. Foods like carrots, radishes, honey, seaweed, black fungi, bitter gourds, and green beans have detoxification functions. They help remove waste from the body, so eating them more regularly keeps you healthy.

Let’s look at the USANA Products for detoxing – the green team:

USANA FibergyConsume Fiber to Prevent Constipation

City dwellers tend to consume more meat but fewer vegetables. This may result in a lack of dietary fiber and lead to constipation, which causes toxins to accumulate in the body. It’s important, then, to pay attention to your fiber intake. USANA Fibergy™ Plus, with natural ingredients, contains 12 grams of dietary fiber per serving. It not only promotes good digestive health, but also aids in normal bowel regularity, which helps move wastes and toxins out of the colon. The high fiber content in USANA Fibergy™ Plus will also leave you feeling satisfied, making it easy to skip unhealthy snacks throughout the day. Its inulin stimulates the growth and activity of bacteria in the digestive system, which in turn assists in the absorption of nutrients and the breakdown of foods.

USANA ProbioticsProbiotics Promote a Healthier Gut

To keep everything working smoothly, it is vital that you drink plenty of water, exercise, and consume a proper diet with plenty of fiber from fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. In addition to eating a healthful diet, using Probiotics can help create an ideal environment for healthy digestion. USANA Probiotic contains Bifidobacterium, BB-12 ® and Lactobacillus rhamnosus, LGG ®, two bacteria strains that can survive transit through the harsh, acidic environment of the stomach to colonize the intestines. Verified to supply 12 billion Colony Forming Units (CFU) of viable bacteria, USANA Probiotic helps promote a natural balance in the gut and maintain the health of the digestive system. Not only do probiotics stimulate the digestive system, but they may also play a role in sustaining healthy immune function. Friendly bacteria are vital to the proper development of the immune system, and more immune cells are concentrated in the gut than in any other region of the body. The intestinal tract can encourage healthy bacterial growth and normal bowel regularity, so impacted stool with toxins won’t accumulate in the body.

usana hepaplusBe Energetic with a Good Liver

People are living with stress nowadays. Heavy workloads and long working hours consume most of our energy. When the body is required to consume large amounts of energy, glucose, fats, and proteins will be broken down for energy. Meanwhile, acidic substances including lactic acid and phosphoric acid are released, causing muscle and joint pain and making people feel tired. These acidic substances may even cause dizziness and insomnia. Maintaining healthy liver function helps relieve fatigue because the liver flushes out metabolic wastes, filters toxins in the blood, and aids in converting fats, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals into usable forms. The unique formulation of USANA Hepasil™ helps combat oxidative stress in the liver with a powerful blend of antioxidants, including green-tea extract and broccoli concentrate. It is also rich in milk-thistle extract, which stimulates liver enzymes, promoting the detoxification process.

What you can do to protect your liver with healthy diet and USANA HepaPlus™

from USANA Australia Aug, 2014 Product Focus News Letter.

Your liver is your body’s waste management system and it performs over 500 hundred functions. It:

•    Filters toxins from the blood 
•    Helps with food digestion 
•    Regulates blood sugar and cholesterol levels 
•    Helps fight infection and disease.

You already know that alcohol can damage your liver. And you may also know that one of the first stages of liver disease is when fat builds up in the liver. But, did you know that the most common cause of fatty build-up in the liver is being overweight and consuming too much sugar? 

Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) is a range of conditions but it is reversible. Around 70-80 per cent of people who are obese are thought to be affected and if untreated, the damage could eventually lead to cirrhosis – tissue scarring which is serious and even life-threatening. NAFLD also raises you risk of conditions such as heart attack and stroke. So, if you are overweight/obese or consume too much of the sweet stuff, here’s what you can do to give your liver a little loving

Limit high GI  

Too much sugar (high GI foods and drinks) is difficult for your body to cope with and stresses body systems. While your body and brain rely on a steady supply of glucose which the body tries very hard to keep within a normal range, sugars like fructose (which is added to many ready-prepared foods and fast foods) is processed in your liver. Too much sugar prompts your liver to produces a type of fat called triglycerides which are then deposited around the abdomen and in the liver. Fat in the liver impairs the functioning of the liver. Low GI foods and drinks are easier for the body to cope with.

Snack carefully

Consuming too many calories causes weight gain (no surprise). But recently, researchers, writing in the journal, Hepatology, found that eating frequently – i.e. snacking – increased the concentration of triglycerides – this encouraged belly fat and fat storage in the liver. So, opt for three daily meals and two to three healthy low GI snacks.

Choose nuts  

Nuts are concentrated in protein and healthy fats – walnuts contain omega-3 fats and almonds are a great source of calcium – nutrients that many of us fall short of. Other healthy snacks include veggies sticks and hummus or tomato salsa and wholegrain crackers with peanut butter or good ol’ Vegemite.

Get into a healthy weight range

Doing this gradually helps reverse NAFLD and can also reduce your risk for cardiovascular conditions like heart attack. At the same time, get moving. Exercise helps to burn calories in the form of excess stored fat. Plus, it encourages your body to build more lean tissue and boost circulation to further boost body – and liver – health.

Try some curry

The Indian spice, turmeric which is a relative of ginger and gives curries their golden glow is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Curcumin, its active ingredient, may also protect the liver by helping to expel toxins via phase liver detoxification reactions.

Try a liver loving cleanse! 

USANA HepaPlus™ supplement contains numerous ingredients including milk thistle extract, alpha lipoic acid and turmeric extract to support healthy liver function. These ingredients not only help cleanse and remove fat in liver but they also help regenerate cells.

USANA HepaPlus – A unique liver supplement formulation

usana hepaplus

Article extracted from USANA Australia Magazine 2013

The unique formulation of USANA HepaPlus uses breakthrough nutritional hybrid technology to combine two formulations into one bilayer tablet while maintaining the distinctiveness of the formulations. HepaPlus is suitable for vegetarians.

HepaPIus contains a scientifically-selected range of liver-cleansing ingredients to help support healthy liver function and normal detoxification processes. Ingredients include:

Milk thistle

Milk thistle

Made from the dried seeds of a wild flower, milk thistle has been widely used as a liver health booster for over 2000 years – although it only burst onto the western herbal
market relatively recently. The active ingredient, silymarin, is a group of anti-inflammatory flavonoids (antioxidants) that may help to protect liver cells against oxidative stress
and even protect new liver cells from being destroyed by toxins. Silymarin reduces inflammation and this is why it may be suggested for people with liver inflammation .
USANA HepaPIus provides close to 200mg of milk thistle extract plus other antioxidants, including green tea extract and broccoli concentrate.

Turmeric (curcumin)

Turmeric

This yellow root is widely used in both Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine as an anti-inflammatory, to treat digestive and liver problems and skin conditions. on animal
studies, curcumin, the pigment that gives turmeric its distinctive yellow colour, can slow the changes caused by excessive alcohol consumption that lead to liver damage. l..can also lower the levels of two body enzymes that cause inflammation. USANA HepaPlus contains curcumin in a special patented and highly bio-available form.

Alpha lipoic acid

Alpha lipoic acid is a naturally occurring antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals. Most antioxidants are either soluble in fat- or water-soluble so they can’t access every part of every cell. Alpha lipoic acid is able to enter both the fatty and aqueous (water-based) sections of the cell, boosting it’s ability to trap free radicals wherever they are.
Ready to make better health changes? If you’re ready to make positive changes to your diet, take things slowly. Drastic changes are too difficult to keep up in the long run and can leave you feeling defeated and down. Small, day-to-day changes will have a much bigger
and longer-lasting effect. If you’re having trouble making changes to your diet. or you’re worried that you’re not getting all the nutrients you need, talk to your GP. Your doctor may be able to give you some practical advice or refer you to an accredited practicing dietitian who can give you tailed personal advice.
