Unhealthy food brings overly sugars, fats and other harmful additives. In this case, our body must spend a lot of energy to clean toxins out. Over time, the body has less energy for other processes and slows its function. The liver and kidneys as the main “cleaners” are becoming overloaded.
The best and most effective way to clear the body out of toxins, is through healthy diet.
Nutritionists recommend a detoxification with fruit and vegetables.
There are many detoxification diets that last for weeks, but recommended detoxification diet is once a month, and it is best for a period of 36 to maximum 72 hours.
