What you consume after a fast plays a pivotal role in maximizing the benefits of the fast. Enter functional beverages – a category of drinks that offer a multitude of advantages to help replenish and rejuvenate our bodies after a period of fasting. In this blog post, I will explore the reasons why the functional beverages at Organic Pharmer are a fantastic choice to support your post-Phast recovery.
1. Detoxification Support
During the Phast, a detoxification process is started. After the phast, these toxins need to be flushed out. So this transition phase after the phast is KEY to reaping the benefits.
The number one reason I rely on the Botanical Beverages when transitioning from the Phast is that they offer support for the lymphatic system and the liver. Background: Your liver does the chemical reactions that remove toxins from your body and your lymphatic system is the pump that mechanically removes them. The Organic Pharmer beverages are formulated to flush your system of the toxins. For example, the Alpha Green has burdock root and nettle leaf that help cleanse the lymphatic system. The alpha Green also has fennel and dandelion to support your liver.
2. Gut Health and Digestive Support:
During a fast, the digestive system takes a break, allowing it to restore and rebalance. As you reintroduce food, supporting your gut health becomes crucial. I want to KNOW that I will not spend the days after my Phast with bloating and constipation, so I use the Happy Gut Botanical Beverage from Organic Pharmer. It has slippery elm, which helps thicken the lining of your GI tract, protecting against inflammation. It also contains star anise that promotes digestive ease. IE no bloating! This one tastes so great with the coconut water and pineapple additions!
3. Mental Well-being and Stress Relief:
Fasting not only affects the body but also has a profound impact on mental well-being. After a fast, it’s essential to support your mind and reduce any post-fast stress. Organic Pharmer’s Calming chamomile beverage is warming from the inside out. I think it is more calming than wine, and a great way to end your evening.
From detoxification support to nutrient replenishment, digestive support, and stress relief, these beverages provide a holistic approach to post-fast recovery.
