The principle of fasting is to abstain from solid food for one or more days and to supply the body with the necessary nutrients through liquids. On the one hand, these are easier to digest and on the other hand help to flush toxins out of the body.
The deliberate renunciation of food triggers important recycling processes in the cells, the so-called autophagy. The cell removes useless cell waste and feeds on it (nutrition from within). This effect sets in after about 24 to 48 hours and makes the cells younger and more resistant. Further positive effects of fasting are the strengthening of the immune system and the stabilisation of the intestinal functions. Besides the proven physical effects, the positive influence on mind and soul should not be underestimated. With a fasting week or even individual fasting days, one takes deliberate time off.
One way to treat yourself to a break through fasting is juice fasting with the Biotta Wellness Week. It offers everything you need for a successful fasting week in one handy package: 11 directly pressed vegetable and fruit juices in the best organic quality, a herbal tea and linseed, and detailed fasting instructions including a weekly schedule for each day. Especially those fasting for the first time make a good choice with the Biotta Wellness Week, because the all-round carefree package is complemented by a daily newsletter and a supervised online community where fasting guests can exchange ideas.
A fasting week offers the opportunity to question one's own eating habits. It can also be the starting signal for a change of diet, towards a more conscious lifestyle with healthy food and sufficient exercise. This helps to keep the newly gained attitude towards life after the fasting week for a longer period of time.
The Biotta Wellness Week is available in pharmacies, drugstores, health food stores or online - e.g. on Puravita.
