Drinking green juice, cutting out gluten, loading up on fruits and veggies…most of the detoxification basics come naturally to us. But, for us, the most daunting aspect of cleansing is finding the right supplements. We know we need them, but with so many options to choose from, we get overwhelmed. Do we need bentonite clay? Psyllium husk perhaps? Or maybe we need a whole cleansing supplement kit…? The struggle is real.

Check out our top picks – and let us know what you love using, too! Let’s maximize the benefits of that New Year’s juice cleanse…

Featuring tangerine, rosemary, geranium, juniper berry, and cilantro essential oils, it supports the body’s natural ability to rid itself of unwanted substances. It targets the endocrine system and liver, aiding in hormone balance and the clearance of xeno estrogens. This helps prevent weight gain, mood swings, PMS, low testosterone levels and conditions of the breast, ovaries, uterus and prostate. Each individual oil provides protective cleansing and filtering functions for the body, supporting the organs’ capacity to rid themselves of stored toxic waste products. This oil can be used both internally and externally.
Low: Chlorella Manna by Health Force Naturals
Chlorella is a single-celled, micro-algae that is revered for its unique detoxification abilities. Its molecular structure allows it to bind to heavy metals, chemicals and some pesticides, and a number of studies have shown its ability to clear nickel and cadmium as well as environmental pollutants like dioxin. When chlorella is taken internally, it binds to lingering toxins found in your digestive tract. This hinders their entrance into the bloodstream, which prevents the development of diseases and inflammatory and chronic conditions. Chlorella is also rich in chlorophyll, a powerful blood cleanser, making it the chosen supplement for mercury toxicity and blood-related disorders. Made by Health Force, it is grown indoors in a sterilized and controlled system, yielding a product free from heavy metals, pesticides, microbes, and other potential pollutants. Add the powder to your morning smoothie, favorite juice or a glass of Pressed Juicery Almond Milk.
