What is detoxification?
Detoxification is a way of cleansing the body as a whole and its essential organs ( skin, lymphatic system, digestive system liver and Kidneys); getting rid of all toxins the body including these essential organs has accumulated over a period of time. The biggest thing that detoxing does to the body is allowing it to rid itself of any excess waste it’s been storing. Most detox programs are designed to stimulate the body to purge itself, helping the liver do its thing as well as the kidneys and colon. The liver is the primary detoxification organ in the body. It protects the rest of the body from harmful substances by reducing their toxicity and making them ready for excretion.
Benefits of Detoxifying the body
1. Increases your energy.
After detoxifying the body you feel more energetic. By avoiding the intake of sugar, caffeine, trans-fat, saturated fat, and replacing them with fresh fruits and vegetables, you will be gaining a natural energy boost, one that comes without a resultant crash. It’s very important to stay well hydrated while on any detox program to boost your energy.
2. Gets rid of excess waste in the body
Cleansing the colon is a vital part of detoxifying because those toxins need to exit the body. Sticking with fruits and vegetables even after the detox program is completed is a good way to keep things moving.
3. Weight Loss
Detox diet helps you to loss weight in the shortest possible time. A more faster results in weight loss if your new found energy boost is well utilised in exercising more and being more active.
4. Stronger Immune System
When you detoxify the body, the essential organs function very well. This helps give your immune system a boost since it is able to absorb nutrients better, including vitamin C.
5. Improved Skin
The skin is always exposed to toxins in the air and the toxic chemicals found in our skin care products, because of this, the body needs to be detoxified to release toxins that enter the body through the skin. And since the skin is an essential body organ, detoxifying the body will surely show some signs of a well detoxified body by making the skin look more healthier and smooth.
