5 Daily Habits that Support Detoxification
Did you know by making a few simple choices daily you can support and improve your detoxification system?
Why is Detoxification so Important?
Detoxification helps remove unwanted toxic substances from the body.
Our bodies contain multiple systems that aid in the natural cleaning process to remove these unwanted toxic substances.
What is the Detox System Made Up Of?
- Skin/sweat glands
Our detox system works hard around the clock to rid the body of these unwanted toxins. Many of these substances come from the daily exposure of both internal and external factors we can’t always control such as pollution, toxins in the air or water, to the food we eat or the products we use on our skin.
This constant negative exposure puts a strain on our detox system which can lead to toxic build up, slowing down the whole detoxification process. Therefore, it’s vital that we make the right choices daily to keep our detox organs functioning smoothly and effectively!
