If you’re stressed, sluggish or feel like you can’t shed those extra ponds, it may be time to detoxify your system, Most detox plans are billed as fast fixes that flush out harmful toxins to get you feeling better in no time, but the majority of nutritional experts will agree that, in order to reap the real benefits, you need to view detoxing as part of your daily routine, “some of the fads that are popular right now ‘awaken’ the toxins. but they don’t actually release them, which can leave you really bloated,” explains nutritionist Natalia Rose, author of Detox 4 Women. “You’ll see better-and longer-lasting-results with a full program.
- The Main Toxic Sources
Toxins came from a number of sources, including the air, water, and food we eat.
“Overly processed foods, convenience-based foods, processed white flours and fried foods generally have ingredients (like additives and chemicals) that interfere with the body’s natural ability to digest and cleanse,” says celebrity nutritionist Paula Simpson.
- How to Reduce Toxins
To reduce toxicity, try to minimize the amount of chemicals ingested by choosing organic food when applicable.
Select items such as high-fiber foods and water, which can help to draw out and eliminate toxins through digestive and urinary pathways.
- Why Toxins are Hard to Process
Several clinical studies suggest that many of the chemicals we are exposed to can accumulate in our bodies, particularly in fat tissue.
“This waste and byproducts stick to tissue and accumulate over time,” says Rose.
