When people gain fat, they don’t get more fat cells, but the existing fat cells get bigger. This can happen because of hormonal imbalances, lack of exercise and foods that can make your body store fat instead of flushing it.
Fat cells store waste like unused amino acids. They can even store toxic compounds, like organochlorines, from pesticides along with other chemicals, which are not easily broken down by your body.
If you want to lose fat, or the fatty look, you must do two things. The first is to shrink fat cells. The second is to keep your lymphatic system in good working order.
Your lymphatic system is a type of circulatory system. It transports white blood cells through your body while transporting waste to organs of detoxification or elimination.
Your lymphatic system must work efficiently so that toxins leave your body, not just change locations. These are some of the beverages that can help.
Grapefruit Juice – Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice is one of the best cleanser’s for your lymphatic system. Grapefruits are extremely high in Vitamin C, which naturally helps the body detoxify.
In addition, grapefruits are high in phytonutrients called limonoids – in particular limonin. Limonin is a compound that helps promote the formation of glutathione-S-transferase, a detoxifying enzyme. This enzyme causes the liver to render toxins to be easily excreted from the body. These compounds are also work as powerful antioxidants.
Grapefruit juice can increase the activity of liver enzymes. In fact, it helps with Phase I and Phase II detoxification. This is important since some foods only help the body with Phase I detoxification. If unbalanced and left incomplete, these half-neutralized toxins can be more hazardous to your body.
Grapefruit juice will help your liver detoxify and clear harmful carcinogens from your body. Not only is this is an excellent preventive measure you can take for your health, but when your liver is fully functioning, it is better at burning fat – a job it may put on hold if it is over burdened.
Cranberry Juice – Pure cranberry juice is a natural fat flushing drink. It must be 100% pure cranberry juice without anything added. (Check the label, you might be surprised.)
Cranberry juice contains high levels of organic acids. When taken on a regular basis, these help the body dissolve fatty deposits.
Cranberry juice has been found in research to inhibit certain strains of bacteria from sticking to red blood cells or mouth cells which can cause them to linger in the body. In addition, it helps block a certain bacteria from sticking to cells causing urinary tract infections. This raises the body’s ability to flush the bacteria out of the system more easily.
Green tea – Green tea is one of the most famous fat flushing drinks. Like cranberry juice, green tea is extremely high in antioxidants. It has been known to help many dieters lose belly fat more quickly when taken 2-3 times a day. In 1997, researchers found that a component of green tea, an antioxidant called EGCG, is very powerful at limiting the negative side effects of a fatty diet and even smoking.
The Lemon Flush – Make this drink with spring water, juice from ¼ lemon, 1 Table spoon of grade B maple syrup and a dash of cayenne pepper. Make the water as hot as you can drink it and add the ingredients. Sip this drink 1-6 times per day to help flush fat and other toxins from your body.
Grade B Maple Syrup is loaded with vitamins and minerals to help maintain blood sugar during a fast or diet. Lemon juice helps break up hardened material in the joints and muscles, helps clear the kidneys and dissolves toxins and congestion all throughout your body and lymphatic system. Some herbalists claim that cayenne pepper is the most powerful herb in the world. It helps your intestines move out waste, speeds up metabolism, helps build heart tissue, and has been used to treat diseases of the circulatory system.
Consuming certain beverages can help your body perform the two jobs of fat loss more efficiently. These drinks can help your body remove waste from the fat cells and keep your lymphatic system clear and ready to transport toxins out of your system. They can help turn any weight loss program into a fat flush program.
