5 Benefits of Detoxing

Are you feeling a little clogged up, a little sluggish?
Well, check out these five benefits of detoxing and cleansing...
  • Improved energy (feel better)
  • Improved digestion
  • Regular bowel movements
  • Increased memory and clarity
  • Clearer skin

Besides the fact that detoxifying your body can help you avoid health problems, there are also a variety of other benefits detoxing can have on your body. It has been advocated by many medical specialists that detoxifying your body will improve your levels of physical fitness and promote youthfulness. Participating in a regular detox program will also improve the appearance of your skin and give you more energy and vitality.

Detox is a useful tool in losing weight because fat stores toxins, therefore when losing weight (as the fat cells break down) the body is exposed to more toxins. These excess toxins can inhibit weight loss, so detoxing can help improve the body’s ability to shed the weight while also making you feel better inside and out.

While whole body herbal detox programs are the most common method of detoxing and cleansing the body, it is also helpful to increase your intake of fresh fruits and vegetables, especially raw and organic. A healthy vegetable diet is very supportive to the body while using a detox program and also in between. Raw fruits, vegetables and leafy greens are well known for their pH balancing and detoxifying properties. The nutritional components found in raw fruits and vegetables promote optimal cellular functions, which supports the body in eliminating toxins. Adding freshly made vegetable juices will also support the body in removing these unwanted wastes. Eating a diet with a focus on fresh fruits and vegetables, raw and organic preferred, is a great way to reduce toxic-cell overload. However, in conjunction with a fabulously health diet, a whole body herbal detox program is still recommended at least once or maybe twice a year.
