As a food and travel writer, I don't always take the best care of myself. European breakfast buffets with their charcuterie offerings add too much salt and fat, while not adding fiber or fluid. My complexion and body ends up feeling dehydrated, mottled and out of sorts. How to restore some semblance of normalcy and retrieve your looks? With a cleanse by Glow Bio, crafted by nutritionist Kimberly Snyder. I was very happy to be hosted to experience it!
I can tell you that though my schedule has been extremely hectic and stressful -- when normally, my skin and system would go berserk -- I am doing very well after my cleanse. It seems to have boosted my immune system and self-healing abilities. The One Day Cleanse incorporates 8 products -- a significant amount to drink, along with your water for the day. There are cleanses that go up to 5 days. This is what they say about it:
The Glow Bio Cleanses are developed in accordance with the Glow Bio Process, and designed to ensure products are the most bio-available to your body. Ingredients are pre-hydrated, activated/sprouted, properly combined and enhanced with probiotics. Toxins will be kicked up and escorted out of the body. Your digestion can rest and also rebuild, so your body can then channel energy into a deep cleansing of toxins as well as function more efficiently in the future. The result? Renewed energy, a more svelte and toned physique and glowing, radiant skin.
Included in all cleanses:
Bio-Available Smoothies: Nutrients plus strategically placed fiber to escort more toxins
out of your body, and also maintain your blood sugar at normal levels.
Probiotic-enhanced Cold-Pressed Juices: Antioxidants, vitamins, plus probiotics
to support rebuilding your system for the long-term, while improving digestion and
powerfully rooting out toxins.
Specific Boosters: “Debloat”, enhance immunity, support digestion and overall system
It is also advised to:
Chew them. Never chug them. By making a chewing action with every swallow of smoothie or juice, you will mix saliva and therefore important digestive enzymes in with the drinks, such as amylase, which help the nutrients absorb into your body even better. This also helps prevent bloating.
1 - The world-famous Glowing Green Smoothie. To my palate, it had a little lettuce/banana/melon flavor. It's thick and has a clean taste.
2 - Immunity Shot. It's very tart and spicy with ginger.
3 - Glowing Green Juice. It has Kale, celery, romaine, parsley, lemon, apple and is fluid, not smoothie textured, very drinkable.
4 - Very Spring-like. I tasted flavors like celery, green pea and wheat grass. It's more savory, not sweet.
5 - A sharp citrus-sweet shot
6 - Active Vanilla Shake Soaked raw buckwheat groats, cinnamon, banana, raw coconut nectar, almond milk, vanilla extract. I would describe the flavor as almondy, snappy and apple-tart.
7 - Detox Shot, it has a sweet cranberry flavor.
8 - A repeat of 1.
