Detoxification is the body’s natural processes of neutralising toxins and preparing them for elimination from the body through the actions of the liver, kidneys, bowels, lungs and sweat glands in the skin.
Post-holiday season, spare a thought for your these organs, especially your liver!
The liver is probably the most important organ for the maintenance of health and well-being. Every minute it processes 1.5-2 Litres of your blood. The liver performs many vital functions, including processing and detoxifying pollutants and chemicals we are exposed to from environment; food substances; alcohol; caffeine; nicotine; drugs; natural medicines; bacteria and their toxins, and our own hormones.
Our Liver and other organs of elimination are frequently overloaded by a multitude of things:poor / rich / fatty diets
- Excess sugar
- Cigarette smoke
- Lack of sleep
- Environmental toxins
- Food additives (eg. colourings, flavourings, preservatives)
- Chemicals in tap water
