detoxification is the process of eliminating or neutralizing toxic substances from the human body. The human body does this naturally every day. it’s mainly the liver that carries out this function. Toxins interrupt normal metabolic functioning. This could lead to various symptoms including stress, headaches (ranging from mild to severe), fatigue, congestion, coughs, pains and aches. Continued development of these symptoms could result in long-term conditions ranging from chronic fatigue to obesity to allergies.
Detoxing extends beyond cleansing your body, it also includes resting and nourishing/replenishing your body with healthy nutrients. In the long run, this prevents diseases and enables you to live healthily.
Although the liver is the major detoxifying organ, toxins can also be eliminated through the kidneys, lungs, skin, and intestines.
Detoxification has the following benefits
- It aids weight loss
- Reduced fluid retention
- Lowering blood pressure
- Reduce blood fat levels
- Improves liver functionality
- Improves digestion
- Increased vitality and energy boost
- Clears skin
- Improves immunity
There are many other additional benefits from detoxing. However, detoxes are not proven to perform better in ridding the body of toxins than its own natural mechanisms. They are also low in calories and nutrients thereby insufficient as a long-term diet plan. The change in diet can also cause stomach upset.
