Why Everyone Should Try a Detox

Are you are feeling run down and overtaxed, or experiencing any number of other symptoms from fatigue to digestion problems to muscle aches? If so, it could be time for a detox. You may have heard that our bodies are designed to naturally detoxify themselves. While that’s true—our livers, kidneys, cardiovascular systems, and even our skin all work to expel toxins—there are still many benefits to doing a detox of your own making, and there are many foods and supplements that have remarkable powers when it comes to eliminating waste and toxins.

What is detoxification?

A detox is essentially the process of removing toxins from the body. Toxins come in many shapes and forms, but in short, they are substances that are harmful to the body. We are exposed to toxins through everything from foods sprayed with pesticides and farmed fish to household cleaners and even the air we breathe.

The process of detoxification can take many forms, the most common being a change of diet, the introduction of vitamin supplements, and herbal detoxification regimens. Switching to natural beauty products is also a great idea when it comes to exposure from chemicals in shampoo, skin care essentials, and the like.

Exposure to toxins can have long-term effects that can cause disease and illness, so one of the primary benefits of detoxing your body is your overall health and longevity. However, after detoxing, you’ll see more immediate benefits, both physical and mental, as your organs (where toxins are stored) begin to work more effectively. Here are some of the primary benefits:

  • A boost in energy.  Following a detox, most people report feeling more energetic. Things like sugar, caffeine, and saturated fat can tend to make you sluggish and even have an energy crash. Post-detox, you’ll have a natural energy high, crash free.
  • A stronger immune system. Eliminating waste and toxins will help your organs function properly and more efficiently. As nutrients are better absorbed, your immune and lymphatic systems will get a boost.
  • Fresher breath.  One of the primary contributors to bad breath is a backed-up colon. As your digestive system improves, you’ll find your breath improves. Note: it may worsen during your detox as toxins are released.
  • Better skin. Little known fact: your skin is your largest organ. Unhealthy foods you eat as well as toxins that your skin is exposed to can both have detrimental effects on your skin, so you’ll likely find your skin to be brighter and clearer after you’ve detoxed. Again, during your detox, the condition of your skin may actually worsen—hold tight.
  • A clear mind.  In addition to physical benefits, a detox will also have noticeable mental benefits. During your detox, you’ll likely find yourself more focused and thinking more clearly.
  • Shinier, softer hair.  Many people who detox see a difference in the condition of their hair. Expect those locks to be shinier and softer to the touch.
  • Weight loss. Short-term weight loss is a common result of detoxing your body. If you want to maintain it, it’s important to use your renewed focus and energy to establish long-term eating and exercise habits.

You likely associate Vitamin D with sunshine and a healthy tan, but since most of us are not afforded the luxury of the sun shining year-round, it’s difficult to maintain the right amount of the vitamin naturally. That’s why it’s no surprise thatmost adults in the U.S. (about 42%) are Vitamin D-deficient, and the low levels leave the body depleted with sometimes severe consequences.
