Easy ways to detoxify your body


Detoxifying starts in your liver. It may be a complicated process but the liver does this in two phases. First, it converts toxic substances to highly reactive metabolites and then gets rid of these toxins. 

Getting rid of the toxins in your body will help you improve your health and speed weight loss.

 

Limit Alcohol:

Liver metabolizes over 90% of the consumed Alcohol.  

Liver enzymes produce acetaldehyde by metabolizing alcohol and converts it to a harmless substance called acetate. Which is later eliminated from your body.

 

Get enough sleep:

Sleeping for an adequate amount of time is a must to detoxify and support your body’s health. Your brain recharges itself, also removes toxic waste products that have been accumulated throughout the day.

One of the waste products is a protein called beta-amyloid, which contributes the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

Without enough sleep, toxins can build up and affect several aspects of your health.

 

Drink more water

I know, every health guru tells you to drink water but there’s a reason why!

It regulates your body temperature, lubricates joints, aids digestion and nutrient absorption, and detoxifies your body by removing waste products.

Water transports waste products, efficiently removing them through urination, breathing, or sweating. So staying properly hydrated is important for detoxification

  

Anti-oxidants

An imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants can cause oxidative stress.

By causing damage to your body’s cells, these molecules have been implicated in a number of conditions, such as dementia, heart disease, liver disease, asthma, and certain types of cancer 

However, eating a diet rich in anti-oxidants can help your body fight oxidative stress. Berries, fruits, nuts, cocoa, vegetables, spices, and beverages like coffee and green tea have some of the highest amounts of antioxidants

 

Decrease your salt intake

Detoxing for some can mean elimination of excess water. Consuming too much salt can cause your body to retain excess fluid, especially if you have a condition that affects your kidneys or liver 

The excess water build up can cause water retention. Now, this may be counterintuitive but one of the best ways to get rid of excess water is to drink water.

By increasing your water intake, your body reduces the secretion of the antidiuretic hormone and increases urination, eliminating more water and waste products

 

Be active

There are several benefits of exercise but the key point is reducing inflammation.

Eventhough, some inflammation is necessary for recovering from infection or healing wounds, too much of it weakens your body’s systems and promotes disease.

By reducing inflammation, your body is able to function normally and protect against disease.
