Verve is kicking off it’s Summer Nutrition Series with a nutrition lecture this Saturday afternoon from 2pm to 3pm. Verve’s own Clara Wisner will be talking about a topic chosen by you. . . “Keys To Detoxification”. What does that even mean, you ask. Well here is a brief outline of what you have in store for you:

What Is Detoxification?
• Removal of toxins
• 4 primary toxin removal systems

• The processing of toxins by your liver, most of which go into the bile and then into your digestive tract for final clearance)

How do we get Toxins in the first place?

How detoxification affects our sleep?
• Sleep helps “detox” our brains

How detoxification affects the skin?
• The skin is your largest organ.
• If your detox systems are working properly your skin will be glowing and clear
• Acne is not about your body trying to push toxins out through the skin
• When the body is inflamed, it cannot detox properly and the skin will become irritated, and the compounds that are needed to repair and replenish the skin will be

How detoxification affects the your energy?
• If your detoxification systems are working properly you will have good energy, if not you feel sluggish, have brain fog.
• 80% of all the energy in your body is devoted to detox processes.
• If you eliminate foods that contain the most toxins: gluten, grains, dairy, and legumes then your body will have more energy to use for you!
