La formule parfaite pour une cure détox de printemps - La Boite à Grains

The gradual rise in temperatures and the arrival of spring have an impact on our biological clock... And what if it was time for a detox cure by turning to tried-and-tested natural remedies?

It's harder to balance a healthy diet with regular exercise in winter. Not to mention the holiday season, which naturally brings with it certain excesses. As the season draws to a close, taking care of your body and your health is an excellent idea.1

Flora, undisputed expertise

The Canadian company Florabased in British Columbia, was founded in 1965. With its long experience, it has earned the trust of a wide audience, in Canada and far beyond.

Flora offers a wide range of natural supplements and formulasincluding tinctures, medicinal teas and liquid tonics. The active ingredients used are carefully controlled, and most are certified organic.2

Flor-Essence, plants to purify your body

Flor-Essence by Flora is a natural formula combining several certified organic medicinal plants to help purify the body. Burdock, slippery elm, milk thistle, red clover, rhubarb, sheep sorrel and kelp effectively eliminate waste and toxins at the cellular level. The result is optimal digestion and better absorption of nutrients.

The combined action of Flor-Essence's medicinal plants helps combat free radicals, supporting the immune system and promoting greater energy in daily life.

With Flor-Essence, a successful spring cure in 2 to 4 weeks

Flor-Essence is a tea concentrate to be mixed with an equal amount of water. It is taken daily 30 minutes before eating, and the duration considered ideal for a spring cure is between two and four weeks. If you wish, this purification cure can be repeated at other times of the year.

A few tips to accompany your Flor-Essence cure

Diet

In addition to taking Flor-Essence for two to four weeks, here are some practical tips for a successful spring cure:

  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day. The medicinal plants in Flor-Essence have diuretic properties that will make you urinate more.
  • Eat plenty of fiber, with an emphasis on fresh fruit, vegetables and whole grains. Fiber is essential for a healthy digestive system.
  • Opt for antioxidant-rich foods for good circulation and healthy digestion: fresh fruit, spices like turmeric or why not cayenne pepper.
  • Support your liver by eating sufficient protein (meat, fish, dairy products, eggs, legumes, etc.) and cruciferous vegetables (kale, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, etc.).

Food supplements

  • Vitamins C, E, B, carotenoids, selenium and N-acetylcysteine (NAC) help support liver enzymes.
  • Antioxidants such as grape-seed OPC, coenzyme Q10, astaxanthin, green tea catechins and milk thistle to counter any increase in free radicals during the treatment.
  • Probiotics help support the health of your intestinal mucosa and intestinal regularity.
  • Vegans may want to talk to a health professional about taking supplements to boost their methionine or cysteine levels, as these are highest in animal foods.

To try

  • Light exercise to promote blood and lymph circulation: yoga, walking, etc.
  • Massage, hot bath or infrared sauna
  • Meditation or journaling on your intentions and goals for this spring cure

What to avoid

  • Excess caffeine: ideally, you want to be in parasympathetic rest/repair mode and not over-stimulated or nervous during your cleansing period. Try switching to green tea during your cleansing period if you need caffeine.
  • Excess alcohol: for obvious liver health reasons. Abstain if you can, or a small glass of red wine if you can't.
  • Lack of sleep: 7 to 8 hours of restful sleep are ideal to help cleanse the body - both your liver and your brain.
  • Junk food and refined sugars. These are the opposite of nutrient-rich foods and are not helpful to the detox process.

Purify your body with Flor-Essence and get spring off to the best possible start!
