We look at why we need to detox and 5 essential organs to detox for healthy living.
Why We Need To Detox
Detoxing helps to purify the body and get rid of toxins; it is important to detox at regular intervals. Regular detox refreshes organs, improves weight loss, alleviates food cravings, improves energy levels and concentration. Ginger root is packed with many powerful compounds and is used in many detoxifying and cleansing programmes. Ginger root should be a staple item in our diets and has been used medicinally for thousands of years. The thermogenic properties of ginger improve blood circulation and the delivery of oxygen, minerals and vitamins to all cells in the body. The detoxifying properties of ginger root are due to its high concentration of gingerol which helps sustain digestive enzymes and neutralise acids. Ginger is used in detox programmes due to its ability to cleanse the body by stimulating digestion, circulation and sweating. Its digestive actions can serve to cleanse the build-up of waste toxins in the colon, liver and other organs. Detoxication fushes out body waste and improves our sense of wellbeing
5 Essential Organs To Detox For Healthy Living
Liver - is the main organ associated with detoxing. The liver identifies and neutralises toxins through bile juices and the kidneys. The liver stops fat-soluble toxins from being stored in fatty tissue. A healthy liver can improve your fitness, immunity and reduce your biological age.
Kidneys - they filter the blood and eliminate toxins through urine. If these are clogged, toxins will remain in the body for a longer time and be reabsorbed by other tissues in the body. This can put stress on the kidneys, increase blood pressure and distort your pH balance. When kidneys are working well, they help eliminate stones, clear infections, and promote weight loss.
Lungs - they get exposed to the maximum amount of toxins through breathing pollutants and microorganisms. Cleansing the lungs with breathing exercises and detoxing will prevent them from getting back into the bloodstream. Colon - excretes toxins and waste materials through faecal matter, if these are not excreted, they are reabsorbed into the bloodstream and can lead to disease. Optimum colon health enhances immunity.
Skin - the biggest organ of the body regularly excretes toxins through sweating. When these are released, your skin will glow.
