Benefits of Body Detox
In recent years, a lot of attention has been brought to body detox, also known as body cleansing. While
some individuals may jump right on the body detox bandwagon, you may be looking for more information.
You may be asking yourself why detox your body? Who needs a body cleansing? What reasons call for a
body detox diet? What are the benefits of a body cleanse?

Millions of people suffer from lethargy, fatigue and lack of energy. There are many reasons for this. They
could be deprived of sleep or it could be due to some medical reasons. For example, people with certain
thyroid conditions or diabetes may be feeling sluggish and tired all the time. If you know for certain these are
not the reasons, it is time you consider a body cleanse or detox because more often than not, your low
energy level is caused by toxin accumulated in your body.

The accumulation of toxic chemicals in the human body not only weakens our internal organs and affects
energy, but the skin as well. Some people with acne problems have tried countless types of over-the-counter
medications and paid a fortune for state-of-the-art acne treatment but without any good result, short or long
term. Many of them who later resorted to a full comprehensive body detox or body cleansing program
noticed a big improvement to their acne problem.

People who body cleanse and remove toxic residues from their body also tend to have clearer skin
complexion and glow. This is because body detox removes toxins that block nutrients from nourishing your
body cells. You cells are therefore rejuvenated and premature aging is slowed down. Your cheeks become
rosy and your face radiant, you will look youthful, hence boosting your attractiveness and confidence.

The buildup of toxins also challenges immune system and interrupts our body nutrient absorption. As the
result, you will become more susceptible to illnesses. Body detox is a good prevention of diseases, from
common illnesses such as cold or flu to the more serious ones like kidney problem and cancer.
Another common reason why people detox their body is to lose weight. Body detox allows the cells to
process nutrients more efficiently and hence increase your metabolism rate. Coupled with improved quality
of food in your diet, you will lose weight effortlessly. This occurs even in people who have had weight
problems for as long as they can remember.




One of the biggest benefits to body detox diets is the factor of waste removal. Especially
in the colon, there is a tendency for waste materials to build up over time, stagnating
within the body and even releasing toxins slowly as they decay into the bloodstream,
leading to many serious side effects. Some of these symptoms of excess of waste in the
system include headaches, body aches, constipation, bloating, and a general feeling of
sluggishness and lethargy.
In addition, the liver is also an area that is prone to waste buildup, since it plays such an
important role within the body of regulating waste materials and helping clean up toxins
such as an excess in fat, sugar, and alcohol. Body detox diets include ingredients such as
milk thistle which have been shown to aid in overall liver health levels. They also help
address the lungs, which are prone to pollutants breathed in through the air on a constant
basis. Over time, all of these environmental contaminants grow and thrive within us,
leading to the poisonous symptoms described above, which is why the need for detoxing
is so prevalent in modern society, and why so many consumers are looking for answers.
While body detox diets can encompass any number of herbal formulas or diet
supplements that are meant to flush out these unwanted waste and toxic materials, there
are some factors that most have in common. All recommend drinking a great deal of
water, which will helps make a huge difference in helping to flush out the excess waste
from the body. This is vital to overall health, and should be made part of everyone’s daily
routine. Before beginning any sort of change in diet plan, it’s recommended to speak to a
healthcare professional who can offer guidance as to the healthiest way to go about this,
to avoid hunger pangs or other side effects of too-severe diets.


Benefits for Blood
One potential benefit of a body detox is to help restore balance to the blood.
According to the Global Healing Center, detox diets that include a lot of green
foods or citrus fruits can help improve the liver's ability to purify the blood. You
will also want to drink green tea for blood benefits, as the catechins in the tea are
known to improve liver functionality and by extension blood purity, according to
the Global Healing Center.

Benefits for the Heart
Body detox programs can also provide benefits for your heart, though the effects
of such benefits vary patient by patient. According to the University of Maryland
Medical Center, some body detox elements such as dandelion can benefit your
heart by helping to reduce fluid retention, providing heart-healthy potassium, and
lowering levels of inflammation in the muscles. This is no replacement for heart
medication, but working with your doctor on a body detox program might offer
some benefits depending on your health needs.
Benefits for Digestion
Body detox programs can offer benefits to your digestive system. The website All
Natural 4 Health notes that detox diets rich in fruits like cranberries contain
hippuric acid, which works to break down uric acid, a known internal irritant.
Dandelion can serve as a diuretic, notes the University of Maryland Medical
Center, while All Natural 4 Health notes that herbal teas used in detoxes such as
ginger and tumeric can soothe the stomach and aid digestion. With a more
efficient digestive system, you will feel better overall well-being, and depending
on your underlying health complaints, a body detox diet may be a possible
solution to any ongoing digestive discomfort you have.
