Following the unbridled life we lead and the bad eating habits we adopt, our bodies accumulate large amounts of toxins each day. These substances that attack the body can hinder its proper functioning and generate various problems such as fatigue, dull complexion, irritability ... Thus, a small detox cure from time to time is necessary to purify his body and give him a good whiplash !
The term "toxin" refers to any substance that may be toxic to the body. These can come from different internal and external sources.
External sources are associated with the environment, such as pollution, medication, excessive alcohol consumption, smoking and poor nutrition among others.
The presence or accumulation of toxins in the body can have many health consequences. Indeed, these substances that invade the body prevent the organs from functioning properly and cause several problems such as dull complexion and acne, persistent fatigue or even mood changes, depression and weight gain.
Normally, the body is able to get rid of these wastes and toxins, but in some cases, their accumulation is so large that it can not eliminate everything. Thus, helping the body purify and flush toxins out of its system is essential to preserve its health and energy.
How to detoxify the body?
To free the body of toxins, it is important to adopt a healthy lifestyle:
Eat healthy and balanced: avoid processed products and promote fruits and vegetables that are rich in nutrients and especially antioxidants. Also reduce your intake of red meat and refill the probiotics, which improve the intestinal transit and thus facilitate the elimination of toxins.
- Drinking plenty of water is also essential to prevent dehydration, but also to drain toxins out of the body. It is recommended to drink 1.5l per day.
- Limit or avoid alcohol consumption. Alcoholic beverages consumed in excess increase the rate of free radicals in the body and fatigue the liver, which is essential in the elimination of toxins.
- Getting enough sleep, between 7 and 9 hours a day
- Practice sports regularly
Besides these various imperatives, it is also recommended to make detox cures to chase toxins out of the body. Note that to detoxify the body, it is important to target the organs that have the role of eliminating waste, namely the liver, kidneys, intestines and lungs.
