Benefits of a beetroot smoothie for weight loss
Beets are great for liver and detoxification support as beets are one of the best foods to stimulate bile flow so that toxins that are dumped into the bile from the liver can be escorted out of the body via the bile.
Before implementing a liver detoxification protocol, the bile must be flowing out of the gallbladder. Optimal bile flow is known as your phase 3 liver detox pathway. Bile must not be congested, thick, or vicious otherwise the toxins will build up and not leave the body and instead further burden the body.
The beet raspberry smoothie is fantastic for weight loss due to beets improving bile flow and eliminating waste and toxins from the liver. Often the body will not burn fuel from fat cells if the fat cell is full of toxins. Therefore a healthy liver and gallbladder are essential for weight loss.
To optimize bile production and flow to help with the digestion of fats the liver needs the amino acids taurine and glycine to make bile. These two nutrients are found in gallbladder nutrients and are essential for a healthy gallbladder.
Phosphatidylcholine helps with the transport and flow of bile out of the gallbladder, which is in Seeking Health’s Optimal PC. This nutrient is crucial for weight loss and preventing a fatty liver.
Low bile production symptoms or signs that your liver and gallbladder may be struggling and in need of some extra love include:
- pain or heaviness under the right rib cage
- floating stools
- upset stomach from fatty foods or craving fatty foods
- motion sickness
- skin problems such as acne
- body odor
- deficiency in the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K.
