In our benefit yoga class this weekend, a yogi asked us if The Ultimate Rejuvenation Cleanse speeds up your metabolism. Our program will definitely benefit your metabolism, the healthy way.
The only thing on the cleanse that possibly increases metabolism is green tea, but it’s only a modest 4%, and isn’t significant. The real reason we recommend green tea is for its powerful antioxidant properties (especially matcha green tea).
Although there is nothing in the cleanse that forcefully revs your metabolism, we do avoid the foods that suppress your metabolism – things like sugar, artificial sweeteners, gluten, peanuts, and other allergens. These foods can directly suppress the thyroid, negatively affect insulin sensitivity, contribute to leaky gut, and/or result in systemic inflammation, which is not good for any part of your physiology or metabolism. At the same time, we focus on delicious, whole foods that protect the mitochondria (the cells’ energy centers) from oxidative damage, so that they can work at full capacity.
Unlike unsafe drugs that force your body to burn more calories, our clean eating plan simply removes the blockages to a robust metabolism. The result is that you start losing weight without starving yourself or running 20 miles a day.
