Living the healthy way doesn’t really equate to living without food that delights our taste buds as it’s not the sweet or delicious taste that we’re trying to avoid.

The UN once declared Spirulina the “best food of the future”. Is it just sensationalism? After all, it’s only a microscopic, blue-green algae.

Presently, it is cultivated and eaten in over 70 countries as a dried powder or pill.

Kombucha is a fermented tea made from a combination of a scoby, sugar and green or black tea.

We’ve read about probiotics. They’re good for us, they help us digest, and they can even be beneficial in healing illnesses (like urinary tract infections) and restoring the body’s natural systems after a course of antibiotics. One of the best ways to get your probiotics is simply by eating some yogurt.
The difference between juice fasts and the kinds of fasts specifically for detox is that they can be much more difficult to deal with. They are quite rigorous and mostly involve no solid food of any kind; for many people, this makes cleansing fasts a kind of endurance feat. One of the most notorious detox fasts available out there is the Master Cleanse.
Many women will suffer or have, at one point or another, already suffered from urinary tract infections. They are irritating at best; if left untreated for even a couple of days, they can become excruciating.

The truth of the matter is that most people are already aware that no single product or pill can hold the key to the fountain of youth.
