Tips To Support Healthy Elimination

Elimination and detoxification go hand in hand. Check out these tips to support a healthy gut and regular elimination. 


It's no secret that the health of our digestive system, specifically the gut, plays a pivotal role in maintaining our immune system, supporting mental health, and even influencing our body's ability to eliminate waste effectively. 

In this post, we'll explore the fascinating world of gut health and delve into the secrets behind achieving healthy elimination.  

Understanding the Gut

The gut is a complex system consisting of various organs and is responsible for the digestion and absorption of nutrients from the food we consume. However, it's significance extends far beyond digestion alone. 

The Gut Microbiome

The gut is home to trillions of microorganism, collectively known as the gut microbiota. These tiny organisms, mainly bacteria but also including viruses, fungi, and other microbes, form a symbiotic relationship with our bodies and contribute to various aspects of our health, including digestion, metabolism, immune function, and brain health. 

Maintaining Gut Health 

A healthy gut relies on a delicate balance of beneficial bacteria. To promote a thriving gut microbiome, certain lifestyle and dietary practices can be adopted:

  1. 🔸Probiotic-rich Foods: Foods such as yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, and other fermented products contain live bacteria that can support the growth of beneficial gut microbes. 

    💡PRO TIP ➡️Supplement with Cultivate

  2. 🔸 Minimizing Processed Foods: Processed foods, particularly those high in sugar, unhealthy fats, and additives can disrupt the balance of gut bacteria. When able, opting for whole, unprocessed foods is the best bet for your gut. 

    💡PRO TIP ➡️Just had a binge moment, big vacation, or generally stray away from healthy options lately? Don't sweat it! Reset in 1 Week with Clean 7

  3. 🔸Stay Hydrated: Drinking an adequate amount of water (translation: half your body weight!) helps maintain healthy digestion and prevents constipation, a common issue that can affect elimination. 

Healthy Elimination 

Efficient elimination is a crucial aspect of gut health. When the digestive system functions optimally, waste products are eliminated regularly, preventing the buildup of toxins and promoting overall well-being. A few tips: 

  1. 🔸Regular Exercise: Engaging in physical activity stimulates intestinal muscles, aiding in the movement of waste through the digestive tract. Aim for at least 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week. 

  2. 🔸High-Fiber Diet: Consuming a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and nuts provides ample fiber, which acts as food for beneficial gut bacteria. This aids in maintaining a diverse and robust microbiome. 

    💡PRO TIP ➡️In need of an extra dose or fiber supplement for when such foods aren't readily available? Try Move

  3. 🔸Because it's worth repeating... Stay Hydrated! Drinking enough water keeps the stool soft and easy to pass.

    💡PRO TIP ➡️ To further assist in this, Clean offers Eliminate- an easily absorbed source of magnesium, which can provide heightened relaxation, relief from muscle pain and cramping, and healthy bowel movements.
