Ginger is a great detox ingredient because it dramatically works to cleanse the body by stimulating digestion, circulation and sweating. ( AKA.. It kicks your bodies butt in a good way!)

When you ingest Turmeric, you are strongly supporting the liver which is one of the most important organs for detoxification! When the liver is supported, it becomes easy for it to clean the blood, reduce inflammation, and prevent blood clotting. As the liver gets cleansed, your body will finally be able to filter and expel all those yucky toxins that have been building up, making you feel amazing, inside and out!

This spice is WAY more than just added heat to your homemade chilli… it’s a detox miracle!
Cayenne is an amazing detoxicant because of it’s ability to rapidly stimulate the circulatory system and deliver fresh blood, oxygen and nutrients to the heart and other organs in the body. When your heart pumps at full force, your heart rate lowers, heart muscles relax and your blood pressure flows evenly and smoothly.
The hot and spicy taste of cayenne comes from a compound called capsaicin, which is what causes the body to produce extra heat and burn more calories for fuel! Burn, baby, Burn!
(Cool Tip: Try putting a pinch of cayenne pepper in your high heels! Cayenne reduces inflammation and helps to prevent, aches and swelling so you can wear your heels 4x longer without pain!)
