- Increased energy & vitality

A true fast involves complete abstinence from food of any kind (usually practised with just water). The Lemon Detox is in effect liquid food – nourishing and energizing. It is important not to burden the body with solid food during the detox.Digesting solid food consumes much of the body’s energy and overrides many of its other tasks. In the absence of solid food the body can focus its energy on cleansing.
Throughout history, experience has shown a periodic abstinence from solid food to be a blessing for the entire organism, the best investment in improved health and a longer natural life span.
While the actual inner cleansing and rejuvenation is performed by the body itself, the Natural Tree Syrup & lemon drink fulfils important functions in assisting this process: It supplies the nutrients necessary for the body’s continuing alert functioning, assisting to restore the biochemical and mineral balance in tissues and cells and expediting cell regeneration. It is assimilated directly into the bloodstream, placing no additional burden on the digestive system. It provides a liquid medium essential for the efficient flushing of wastes from the system.
The acidity of lemon juice assists the cleansing process, acting like an internal detergent to dissolve excess fats and the cayenne pepper or ground ginger helps speed up metabolism, thus promoting circulation and the elimination of toxins.
