Detox is a great way to start your weight loss program, but why? It is because detox helps your body to get its full nutrients, it also give your digestive system a time-out from breaking down food inside your stomach. Detoxification is always associated with the liver, since it is the organ responsible for detoxing.
Added to that, there are also some areas in the body that are intended to detox like the skin, kidneys and colon. Since skin is the largest organ, automatically it is also the largest organ of detoxification by the means of eradicating the toxin through perspirations. Your kidneys on the other hand, screen your blood and removes toxins through urine. Finally, the colon metabolize the toxin in the body and out in the form of waste number two. If you are having trouble eliminating them, constipation occurs. That’s why you need plenty of water and enough fiber in order to eliminate it from your body.
Once you have known the role of detoxifying process in your body, I will give you lists of detox drink recipes that will help you be healthier not only through exercises, healthy foods or healthy lifestyle, but also having healthy organs, which is very important.
