Essence of the body cleansing programs
The theory of "slagging" the body and the need for its periodic purification does not lose its popularity.And if earlier such a hypothesis was popular mainly among adherents of traditional medicine, now it is imposed on young modern people.In social networks, girls advertise detoxification drinks, and cosmetic offices offer all sorts of cleansing programs.But the question is not only the effectiveness, but also the safety of such methods.

Cleansing the intestine
There are many complex folk recipes, dietary supplements, various detoxifying drinks designed to cleanse the intestines.But actually keeping the intestines healthy is not so difficult.To do this, avoid fatty, protein foods, all kinds of "junk-food", eat lots of vegetables, and water.These seemingly trivial things are true.In addition, there are special products that will help clear the intestines from undigested food residues.
Bran is a hard shell of grain.This product is a source of essential fatty acids, minerals, vitamins.Bran also contains fiber, which gets into the intestines, absorbs and retains water.In this swollen state, the area of the food lump increases and it intensively adsorbs all possible toxins from the intestine.In addition, bran has a mechanical effect, cleaning the intestinal wall of the remains of undigested food.As a result, the intestine is cleared, the microflora is normalized, the absorption of useful substances is increased.
Take bran two tablespoons three times a day, twenty minutes before meals.Bran should be washed down with two glasses of water.The entire course of cleansing can last no more than a month.
It is known that the seeds of this plant are rich in unsaturated fatty acids, antioxidants and fiber.The purifying effect of flax seeds is similar to that of bran: the fiber absorbs water and swells, absorbing toxins into itself.
For cleansing the intestine, two teaspoons of seeds should be poured into a plate and pour a glass of hot water.The mixture should be stirred for fifteen minutes, and then strain it and squeeze the remaining raw materials.The resulting mass should be taken on a quarter cup three times a day for half an hour before meals.Course - two to three weeks.Seeds can also simply be added to cereals, yogurts, kefir.
