The Benefits of Detoxing
Regular detoxing should be a part of your monthly diet regime. Detox diets are great for cleansing the body of toxins especially if you have you experiencing digestive issues, weakness, bloating, nausea, mood swings and skin issues. Detox drinks help to boost energy, cleanse the liver, aid weight loss, reduce inflammation and promote skin health. Detox smoothies give your digestive system a break and detoxifying herbs, fruit and vegetables can be added to aid the process.
Detoxing is the process of removing toxins from the body and is one of the best ways to rid your body of toxins, which can slow it down and make it unhealthy. We won’t lie, the process of detoxing requires discipline. You should schedule a monthly detox if you regularly consume any of the following:
- Bread & Pasta (anything containing gluten)
- Caffeine (Coffee, Tea, Coke)
- Milk (anything containing lactose)
- Red Meat
- Sugar (refined sugar and artificial sweeteners)
Benefits of Detoxing
With our innate “get on with it” attitude we often miss the signs that our body is crying out for a detox. We accept feeling bloated, sluggish, tired and moody and put it down to life stresses and our age. So, for most the most noticeable benefits from detoxing are physical ones. Since the toxins store up in major organs, like our liver and stomach detoxing helps these areas the most. After the detox is completed, you may feel “lighter” and have more energy. Also, since a detox is used to clear away free radicals, your body’s immune system will be stronger and you will have a lower risk of getting cancer. Finally, a detoxification regimen will clear your blood, helping it circulate better.

Many detox program followers report feeling more energetic. By cutting out the sugar, caffeine, trans fat, saturated fat, and replacing them with fresh fruits and vegetables, you’ll be getting a natural energy boost, one that comes without a resultant crash. It’s vital to stay well hydrated while on any detox program, and that can also be a source of increased energy if you typically don’t get enough water throughout the day. When you detox the body you free up your organs to function the way they should. This helps to give your immune system a boost since you’ll be able to absorb nutrients better, and help your lymphatic system, which plays crucial role in keeping you healthy and firing on all cylinders.
