Detoxing one’s body is fast becoming a new trend. While the word is shrouded with multiple ambiguities, those who have incorporated detoxification into their weekly routine can’t stop talking about its natural health benefits.
So what does detoxification really mean and why is it important? As the name suggests, detoxing aims to help the body rid itself of toxins. The human body has many natural pathways to allow detoxification through liver, sweat, urine, and more. But fast urbanization and exposure to pollutants, heavy metals, preservatives and pesticides has taken the average toxin consumption by human beings to an all-time high. These toxins get stored in tissues and cells of our bodies and manifest in harmful metabolical, reproductive and mental health effects. By detoxing your body you help the vital organs cleanse themselves of the toxins, and enable the liver to function appropriately in excreting them.
Detox drinks are fast gaining recognition in the fitness world for preventing toxic overload and major health problems. We also believe toxic overload is one of the major causes of skin problems. Toxic intake which is not excreted properly may also cause bloating, gas, headaches, constipation, fatigue, nausea, bad breath and bring your energy levels really down. In order to stay healthy, and avoid all of the above mentioned negative side effects, we recommend including a detox drink into your daily routine.
