5 Fast & Easy Ways to Detox After Your Holiday Feast
No one wants to miss out on the family Thanksgiving feast, but overindulging can leave you feeling sluggish, bloated, and in need of a detox.
It’s improbable to think of going on a cleansing diet or doing a week-long body detox during the holidays, but there are quick ways to do an easy cleanse that won’t interfere with your holiday plans. There are easy ways to quickly detox and refresh your system during the holidays to help you feel energized and rejuvenated – just in time for that next family or work gathering. Here are 5 Quick Ideas to Body Cleanse Post-Thanksgiving:
1. Lemon Water
Warm water with lemon in the morning instead of coffee or a latte can help chase away a hangover, boost your metabolism, flush out your liver, and give your digestive system a kick start. These benefits help to detox your liver and body before you move on with your day (and move on to that next holiday party).
2. Apple Cider Vinegar with Water
Unfiltered, organic Apple Cider Vinegar attacks undesirable bacteria and germs, as it has antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Look for the organic, unfiltered type of ACV that contains the ‘mother,’ which is composed of strands of proteins, friendly bacteria, and helpful enzymes. Drinking one tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with a full glass of purified water will give you a quick body detox and speed up that post-dinner sluggish digestive system.
3. Stinging Nettle, Dandelion or Green Tea
Any of these three teas can help with an easy cleanse and quick detox after your holiday meal. Green tea can help detox your liver, reduce your blood sugar, and relieve bloating from digestive gases. Stinging nettle tea also helps relieve bloating and gas, and it also soothes the digestive system and promotes healthy digestion, which in turn helps you cleanse after a large meal. Dandelion tea helps relieve intestinal gas, soothes an upset stomach, and gets your elimination system moving by acting as a laxative and stimulating your kidneys and bladder – all of which aid in a body detox.
If you were already taking Probiotics before that big Thanksgiving feast, that would be great, but if not, now is a great time to start. Taking a probiotic helps with a body cleanse anytime. You need that healthy flora in your digestive system to help you absorb good nutrients and get rid of the junk you may have consumed. The digestive system contains about 70% of your immune system, so a probiotic may also help you fight that winter cold you may have picked up from family or friends at your Thanksgiving dinner.
A 30-minute after-dinner walk will get your blood pumping, oxygenate your body, and help lower your blood sugar levels. Getting your blood pumping helps get everything moving and delivers oxygen and nutrients to your digestive and elimination systems, which is a great start to helping your body detox and cleanse itself, so hold off on that nap until after your walk!

About Schwartz Bioresearch Probiotics:
Schwartz Bioresearch probiotic supplement guarantees high-quality, shelf stable probiotic strains which maintain at least 20 billion CFU until the labeled expiration date and survive harsh stomach acids to reach the intestinal tract where they exert their greatest benefits. Most probiotics have weak strains that don’t survive the shipping and storing processes, let alone stomach acids and bile. Some manufacturers are even offering probiotics with a chemical-filled coating so the weak strains won’t die in the stomach. Schwartz Bioresearch is one of only a very few brands that can guarantee potency until expiration date; strength of our probiotic lies in the high quality strains we work with, not in artificial coatings.
