Along with weight gain come toxins. For my regular readers, you know I love a good cleanse, and I am always looking for new natural products that can help flush toxins out of my body – and hopefully help me drop a couple of pounds in the process 🙂
About two years ago, one of my readers (who is now a close social friend!) recommend the Lady Soma Detox to me after I had written one of my first posts about cleansing and losing weight. After evaluating the ingredients, I gave it a shot and I was hooked. I now do the Lady Soma Detox every 6 months. One detox cycle lasts for 7 days. I take a 6 month break in between, but most people take a 3 month break. I feel like I am naturally healthy, so it takes a while for me to feel fatigue and toxin build up in my body, so doing it every 6 months is what feels good for my body.
What I like about the detox:
And it’s not just weight. It’s the toxins. That is what was causing the bloating – the large stomach, and not being able to fit into some clothes. I was swollen from toxins. At about Day 3 of being on the detox, it kicked into hyperdrive.
I was eliminating toxins and I could feel my body decompressing.
Yes, I was going to the bathroom a lot. Not in an uncomfortable uncontrollable way. It felt very normal and regulated, and I was happy to know my body was getting rid of all this waste. By day &, which is the last day of the detox, I could even notice my skin was so much clearer. I was lighter, fresher and just feeling overall good.
Here are some of the ingredients in the Lady Soma Detox and why they work:
- Psyllium husks, or plantago psyllium seeds: these are a fiber-rich ingredient that reduce bloating. The two essential components of psyllium husks are glycosides and mucilages. Fully soluble in water, these elements help waste release by softening the stool without forcing it through the intestines like normal laxatives.
- Flaxseed oil: It is an essential fatty acid that provides the amount of fat that your body requires on a constant basis to stop craving for “something sweet or nice”. Flaxseed oil is rich in fiber (11g in each dose), which enhances metabolism and boosts thermogenic fat processing. What it practically does is to convert the surplus of calories existing in the female body into heat instead of fat (thermogenesis). It enhances bowel movement thereby purging the colon. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, flaxseed oil does not injure the stomach lining.
- Spirulina: an amazing blue-green algae enjoying worldwide notoriety for its antioxidative qualities. Because of its fatty acid-rich content, spirulina can boost protein levels in your body while suppressing your appetite and keeping glucose levels in check. The magnesium contained in this ingredient helps smooth weight loss, while the gamma lineolic acids adjust blood sugar levels and slow digestion. The chlorophyll contained in spirulina decomposes heavy metals and toxins thereby enhancing the detox action of the dietary supplement.
- Garlic powder: boosts metabolic functions by alerting the nervous system to release adrenaline, a hormone which is responsible for burning calories. Allicin, the key component of garlic powder decreases the level of health-threatening fats and bad cholesterol in the body, while the hydrogen sulfide enhances blood flow causing the capillaries and blood vessels at the heart to open. The manganese plentifully found in this ingredient, improves metabolism by producing the enzymes that help break down fat.
This is my friend Mallory who told me about the Lady Soma Detox:
Toxins are all around us – in food, cleaning products and in cosmetics (phthalates, parabens, UV-filters, BHA, BHT).
