A Thorough Cleansing

Last week I embarked on my very first (it won’t be the last!) 3 Day Suero Viv Cleanse. I admit that I was a little uncertain as to how I would handle drinking six SueroViv beverages per day and consuming no other foods or beverages. Would I feel tired? Hungry? Experience blow sugar swings and be contrary? However, I was pleasantly surprised at how stable my blood sugar remained…and the very few times I did start to feel the slightest bit tired or hungry, it was time to drink another Suero Viv which filled me up and gave me an energy boost. I did not even experience food cravings during or after the Suero Viv Cleanse.

What did I experience?
·       A clear mind to accomplish daily tasks and get settled into a new routine and some new commitments.  
·       Energy to do some pretty insane workouts every morning and extra group workouts two evenings.
·       More time! I found myself saying, “there are too many hours in the day”. With time saved preparing and eating meals, I found “extra time” to do things I had been putting off for another day.
·       Restful nights, awaking refreshed and ready for the morning.
·       Weight loss
·       Inflammation removed
·       Smooth soft skin

Now, you may be asking, “what is Suero Viv and what exactly are the internal benefits to following a 3 Day Suero Viv Cleanse?”
Suero Viv, meaning Whey of Life, is a cultured whey beverage alive with probiotics and enzymes, hydrating and packed with electrolytes and B vitamins, plus it is addictively delicious with a slightly sweet/slightly tangy flavor.
Drinking Suero Viv or following a Suero Viv Cleanse aids your body in eliminating waste and toxins that accumulate as a result of pollution, radiation from electronics, and consuming foods commonly found in the standard American diet. The cultured whey works to cleanse your liver, colon, kidneys, and lymph system. The potassium actually pulls waste from the cells of the body. Check out this excerpt from a recent article on draxe.com:
Potassium is in a class known as electrolytes. When dissolved in water, electrolytes conduct the electricity needed by our muscles and nerves to function. Another function of potassium is to assist the storage of carbohydrates in the muscles. Carbohydrates are needed for endurance, and also play a role in the body’s blood pressure regulation, as well as fluid balance. When the body lacks potassium, not only are the muscles and nerves compromised, but the heart may even have trouble maintaining a normal rhythm.
If you follow what I call the SAD Diet (Standard American Diet) there’s a good chance you may also suffer from the potassium-sodium imbalance. The good news is this imbalance is not permanent. There are ways to correct it.
Cleansing is just a good idea because it promotes cellular health and brings your body into a better balance by flushing waste out.
Cleansing is something that can be done on a regular (monthly) basis to help keep your body balanced and in good working order. I felt so good as a result of my 3 day cleanse that I already have my next one planned! An added benefit to regular cleansing is sustained weight loss. Now, losing weight was not the main goal I had when I began my cleanse, but I have noticed since turning 31 that I do have to be a little more careful about how much dessert I eat (and I DO enjoy my fair share of dark chocolate!). Since I like to play with numbers, let’s consider if I’m consuming around 2,000 calories a day on a regular basis, but I take 3 days per month to cleanse:
normal daily caloric intake
daily calories on a Suero Viv Cleanse
calories saved per day
number of days cleansing
calories saved per cleanse
months per year
calories saved per year

 AND 3,500 calories = 1 pound…so that is a 13 pound weight loss or avoidance of weight gained over the course of a year, just simply by cleansing on a regular basis. Pretty amazing stuff! If all of this has you craving Suero Viv and ready to cleanse, then by all means, visit my BeyondOrganic site and check it out!
