Today, a number of options are available in the market for a cleanse or liver detox, such as detox tea or detox diet.However, opting for a workable detoxification method needs proper insight.

Do you aspire to maintain your physical fitness? However, what does fitness mean? Is it a disease-free body or running a marathon? Well, let me tell you what is a good state of physical fitness?According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), physical fitness is defined as 'the ability to carry out daily tasks with vigor and alertness, without undue fatigue, and with ample energy to enjoy leisure-time pursuits and respond to emergencies’. Based on this definition, fitness involves everything from finishing your daily chores to responding well in any emergency. So, with changing time, life, culture, and diversions,are you able to cope up with the current demanding tasks without getting tired?

Let us check various ways to accomplish your daily tasks with ease and zest.

  • Consistent exercise: A cardio respiratory workout such as brisk walking, running, jogging, cycling, or swimming can improve blood circulation, oxygen uptake and keep the muscles and bones in the best of health.
    1. Toning muscles: Activities such as push-ups, sit-ups, and exercise using equipment makes you gain strength. It is highly recommended to maintain the fit body composition, particularly muscles mass and fat mass. This requires consistency to maintain the strength gained.
    2. Flexibility and balance: This is the most ignored area of overall fitness. Flexibility includes all the stretches that can be done with ease and balance.To make it simple- can you stand on one leg? This comprises of a major part in the overall fitness parameter. Majorly, to maintain weight, exercise is of prime importance.
  • Detox diet: A balanced detox diet can facilitate the daily nourishment necessary to stay fit and healthy, while removing accumulated toxins from the system. To amp up your metabolism, aid weight loss or to maintain weight, natural detoxification using a healthy balanced detox diet for a liver detox is vital. However, what needs to be incorporated for detoxification? Usually detoxification, also known as a liver detox, helps cleanse the liver, which plays a pivotal role in the detoxification of the entire body. However, many toxins collect in the liver, leading its functioning to weaken, precipitating symptoms of ill health.
    1. Detox tea: Tea is one of the most popular beverages consumed worldwide. For detoxification at home, detox tea, based on green tea can help in a liver detox and cleanse. From anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic, antibacterial to anti-diabetic, anti-cancer, cholesterol lowering, detox tea has a host of positive effects including being great for detoxification. Detox teas, especially the mixture of Green tea, Matcha tea, and Oolong tea found in FIT BODY™ DETOX TEA by BestSource Nutrition offer multiple health benefits.
    2. Evidence based data supports the health promoting effects of detox tea, mainly attributed to its polyphenols, flavanol and most abundant catechin- epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). Several epidemiological studies and clinical trials show that detox tea, green tea, and oolong tea may reduce the risk of many chronic diseases. This beneficial effect has been attributed to the presence of high amounts of polyphenols, which are potent antioxidants. In particular, green tea may lower blood pressure and thus reduce the risk of stroke and coronary heart disease.
    3. Catachins show positive results on type 2 diabetes as they lower triglycerides. Glutathione- an antioxidant – reduces oxidative stress, inhibits lipid peroxidation to prevent cancer, keeping cells healthy and resulting in healthy glowing skin.
