Spring is finally HERE! When you think of spring cleaning, we tend to think of housework, but the new season is also the perfect time to refresh our mind and body.
We all know spring cleaning our homes can be such a chore, but when it comes to our bodies, it’s much easier. Simply adding lemon to your drinking water or adding more fresh fruit and vegetables to your diet are all ways you can flush out the bad and bring in the good this spring.
Here are 7 ways to spring clean your body and mind.
Two Letters, 1 Number: H2O
Water is essential to life. As the weather gets warmer, it’s important to drink lots of water to prevent dehydration. Be sure to up your water intake this spring. To calculate your body’s ideal water intake, divide your weight (i.e. lbs) in half to arrive at the number of ounces you should be drinking on a daily basis (e.g. 140 lbs ÷ 2 = 70 ounces).
To get a quick energy boost to balance and replenish your electrolytes, try our COCONUT OIL MCT ENERGY & Electrolytes®* formula, which has been specially formulated to support electrolyte balance and hydration throughout your body, as well as delivering a quick-boost of cellular energy.*
Support wellness with B Vitamins*
B vitamins are some of the most important tools that your cells use to get their jobs done. There are hundreds if not thousands of known biochemical reactions in the body that require one or many B-Vitamins. They are important for metabolism, energy production, the maintenance of a healthy nervous system, and are used in a variety of chemical reactions related to cellular detoxification.* Yeah, you said it…these are some seriously important nutrients.
Probiotics – the unsung hero of a healthy body
Keep your digestive tract healthy and your intestinal flora balanced this spring with regular probiotic supplementation.* Probiotics can help replenish, rebuild and nourish the intestinal flora to promote optimal digestive function.*
Get help with our two popular probiotic formulas. Choose between our Active-Cleanse and Probiotics®, a gentle yet effective formula that works through the digestive tract to promote toxic waste elimination and probiotic replenishment.* It can be used as part of a detox program or as a stand-alone product for deep internal cleansing* or our Healthy Tract Probiotic-UP®*, a one-per-day probiotic guaranteed to deliver 3 billion live cultures per Liquid Soft-Gel at time of manufacture!* This product can be taken daily for ongoing maintenance of optimal digestive functions.*
Detoxify with Spices
As you spring clean your spice rack, make sure to refill or stock up on some delicious yet detoxifying spices and herbs like dandelion, turmeric, or milk thistle. Although not all of us at Irwin Naturals are culinary ninjas we know our herbs and have formulated powerful detoxification supportive tools for your health to benefit from.
Let the Sun Shine
The sun is the best way to get vitamin D. Now that we are leaving our winter blues behind, spend more time outdoors and enjoy the start of warmer days! If you struggle finding your way outdoors, make sure you are finding other ways to support your Vitamin D status such as through supplementation.
Think about Fitness
Warmer weather means that you’ll have more reasons to get outdoors and hopefully the improved weather will encourage you to hit the gym. Not only will working out help stimulate blood flow, oxygenating every cell of your body, and providing you more energy, but your mind also benefits from exercise. Overall, exercise is the best way to promote health of the body and mind, and it doesn’t cost a dime! Be sure to check out our Sports Performance formulas to help you on your fitness journey.*
Eat Fresh Fruits and Veggies
We may be preaching to the choir about this one, but always, always, always get enough fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet! Not only do fruits and vegetables provide the micronutrients your body needs to maintain the health of each cell in your body, but they also provide valuable fiber that can help you stay regular and enjoy the benefits of a healthy digestive tract. Check your local farmers market and see what’s springing up with spring!
Spring cleaning your health may also involve a bit of actual spring cleaning your medicine cabinet. It’s a great time to make sure all your over-the-counter health products are not expired, and the same holds for your prescription medications. Happy Spring Everyone! Be sure to stop and smell the blossoming flowers.
