 Set yourself on the right road towards maximum health

Most people have some “bad” eating habits that they find hard to break. Because of these, our bodies are permanently under assault from toxins and over time, this can damage cellular health and contribute to the ageing process and age related diseases. These five habits to make will also set you on the right road towards maximum overall health.

1)   Drink eight glasses of water a day

Water helps to dilute toxins in the blood for elimination through the kidneys. Drinking enough water helps your kidneys to function better and makes an enormous difference to how you feel.

2)   Eat the big five superfoods each day

Superfoods are foods that hit all the right health buttons. They are packed with nutrients and antioxidants and are free from too much natural sugar. The five superfoods are; seeds such as pumpkin, sunflower, flax and sesame seeds; dark green vegetables such as spinach, watercress, basil, parsley and avocado; cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, brussels sprouts and kale; sources of sulphur- containing amino acids such as onions, spring onions, garlic and shallots ; super fruits such as blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, oranges, grapefruit, watermelon and grapes.

3)   Maximize your intake of anti-ageing antioxidants

Antioxidants help to neutralize the oxidants that can cause damage to your liver. Some great antioxidants are pomegrate, blueberries, blackberries, kale, strawberries, baby spinach, broccoli, plums, alfalfa sprouts, beetroot, avocado, red peppers, cherries, kiwi fruit, baked beans and grapefruit.

4)   Take detoxifying supplements

You can further improve and support your liver’s ability to detoxify with supplements, especially on a scheduled detox. Patrick Holford recommends Digest Pro, a supplement that he formulated that contains a good combination of digestive enzymes, probiotics and Glutamine

5)   Do detoxifying exercises

Detoxification is about eliminating what is unnecessary. Exercise has a vital role to play in this, and that is the generation of vital energy. Any whole body exercises are good for you, including brisk walking, jogging, swimming, yoga etc
