Detox drinks and smoothies are usually made from natural organic ingredients, which would typically be high in vitamins and minerals and are selected to be gentle on the digestive system. Fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes are just a few examples of what you could expect to find within these health drinks. By liquefying food and eliminating certain fats and proteins from the diet which are difficult to digest, the digestive system is given the much-needed break it requires to kick-start the body’s natural detoxification process, in turn boosting the immune system with a healthy dose of nutrients which are commonly missing from the modern-day diet.

Nearly every retreat will have its own special recipes and schedule of detox drinks to form part of your daily routine throughout the course of the programme. Following a strict course of detox drinks and smoothies may be challenging at first, as they may be accompanied by the sensation of hunger and cravings. Once the body and mind commit to these adjustments, cravings and hunger subside, followed by an increase in energy levels and concentration as well as huge improvements in the feeling of wellbeing.
