Detox diets are healthy eating programs that aim to eliminate toxins from your body. This helps the detoxifying organs: liver, kidneys, lymphatic system, lungs, gastrointestinal tract and skin.
Toxins in the body
They are all substances that can have negative effects on our body, even poisonous action. Toxins can be heavy metals, chemicals and artificial food ingredients. One of the most harmful effects for us is that they have a cumulative effect - they build up in our body. They are in our drinking water, in the air, in our food - it is impossible to avoid them completely. In addition to external factors, toxins can also come from the body's normal metabolism and the accumulation of harmful microorganisms in the small and large intestine.
Fortunately, our body has a cleansing mechanism, but it is still important that we give it substances to help detoxify.
How our body cleanses itself of toxins
In the first place in the fight against toxins we put the liver. It is the largest organ in our body after the skin. Its main functions are digestive, metabolic, thermoregulatory, detoxifying and hemolytic.
- digestive function - helps to break down and resorb fats from food in the intestine;
- metabolic function - actively involved in the metabolism of the body. Regulates the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats;
- thermoregulatory function - through metabolic processes, it generates an amount of heat, which is distributed to all parts of the body through blood circulation;
- hemolytic - in it the outdated blood cells are destroyed - erythrocytes, leukocytes and platelets;
- detoxifying - through the enzymes it disposes of many toxins from food and drink.
Under normal conditions, the liver handles toxins and disposes of them by excreting them through our urine, feces and sweat. But when it is constantly threatened by incoming toxins, it fails to cope with the harmful substances and they get into the blood. That's why it's important to take care of our liver. Vertera created Hepa Mix productto help the activity of your liver in its fight against the daily intake of toxins from the body.
The skin is part of the excretory system - sweat glands serve to excrete waste products from metabolic processes. Medically, the skin is part of the excretory system. Through perspiration, the pores of the skin open and expel a large part of the toxins in the body.
The kidneys are a central organ of the excretory system whose role is to throw out the waste products of metabolism.
If many toxic substances get into the blood, the following symptoms occur:
- skin problems
- bloated belly
- weakened immune system
- hormonal imbalance
- morning fatigue
