To have a fit and healthy body it is first of all essential to have a clean body, free from waste and toxins.
An excessive accumulation of these substances can in fact compromise the normal functions of the body, increasing the oxidation of cells and inflammatory processes. An intoxicated body can present a wide variety of symptoms such as fatigue, headache, constipation, digestive difficulties, pimples, brittle hair and nails that can gradually turn into real health problems.
Harmful substances are continuously neutralized and eliminated from the body by the excretory organs which are liver, kidneys, intestines and skin. That’s why consuming some detox drink regularly is recommended.
The problem is that nowadays we are exposed to such a high amount of toxins that our body is unable to dispose of them adequately and it is precisely for this reason that we must help it in the detoxification processes with specific natural remedies to purify the body and adopting a healthy lifestyle, which eliminates as much as possible the causes that lead to the formation of toxins.
