Unnatural, pricey and time-consuming. Keep reading for the ultimate detox alternative.
We know that our body naturally goes through its own detoxifying process. Our internal systems such as the liver, kidney, and digestive tract help to eliminate the accumulated toxins and waste which can be found in the food we consume and our environment.
But there are key factors such as overall health levels, diet, activeness and age that affect our body’s ability to deal with these unwanted residents in our bodies. No doubt, the younger and healthier are more resilient and therefore can effectively get rid of these toxins and wastes. However, when our body absorbs more than it can eliminate, even the young and healthy are at risk!
When this happens and our system fails to flush them out naturally, it can lead to many health-related problems such as
- Weak immunity
- Weight gain
- Digestive issues
- Poor skin condition
- Fatigue, bad breath, and body odour
- Risk of other health diseases
There are many ways detoxifying can help our bodies achieve a stronger immunity and gut health. We should give our body that extra immunity boost especially during this pandemic. After all, a little help can go a long way, right?
Some of these juices are pre-made or packed and can be found at supermarkets or convenience stores. However, some of these are made with added sugar or flavorings to improve the taste. This defeats the purpose of clearing your body of toxins and wastes as sugar is one of the highest contributors. Detox juices have been hyped by many popular figures as well as trend followers. However, there are still names on the Hollywood walk of fame who believe on some levels that juice cleanses are completely fake news!

Including this detox juice in your night time routine can bring long term health benefits. (That is if you don’t mind the hassle of cleaning up after or bursting your monthly grocery budget with the expensive ingredients!)
Off-the-counter detox pills
There are many off-the-counter supplements to kickstart your detoxifying process. However, some of these supplements are made with extra preservatives or additives and include chemicals and laxatives which may eventually do more harm than good to your body. It is important to look for those which are made naturally with no harsh chemicals.
