Tips To Ensure Nutrients Are Absorbed Sufficiently:
Address your digestive health if it is at all compromised; see a Nutritional Therapist who specialises in digestive health if necessary.
Chew your food thoroughly in a relaxed manner, because digestion begins in the mouth and eating when stressed actually reduces digestive capacity.
Food To Avoid
Processed foods require more nutrients to digest and detoxify than they supply, thereby bankrupting your nutritional stores.
Avoid using polyunsaturated oils for cooking. Use only butter, coconut oil or olive oil.
Foods To Include To Support Immunity and Detoxification:
Eat 2-3 portions of cooked vegetables and 3-4 portions of raw vegetables everyday. Cooked vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli support liver detoxification and raw vegetables supply enzymes to assist digestion.
Favour berry fruits for their antioxidants that help calm inflammation and support the detoxification processes.
Choose organic fruits and vegetables wherever possible because they are higher in antioxidant nutrients.
