6 Natural Detoxifying Foods

Even though you are busy with your work, personal, and social life you must take time out to care for yourself and your body. You need to detoxify your body at regular intervals so that you can maintain a fit and healthy body at all times. You don’t have to go to a hospital for that. You can safely and effectivelydetox your body in the comfort of your home by consuming the right foods.

Where Do Toxins Come From?

Toxins come from a variety of places like the air, water, pesticides, contaminated animals and fish, and can also be absorbed through your skin. Personal care products like shampoos, perfumes, make-up, and lotions contain toxins that are harmful to your body. Some toxins come through your food supplements, toothpaste, and medications since most of them contain gelatin.

Toxins damage our bodies in multiple ways. They poison our enzymes which then don’t work properly, displace structural elements rendering our bones weak, damage your internal organs, damage DNA which increases the rate of aging and degeneration, adversely modify gene expression, and interfere with our hormones and cause imbalances.
