What is Detoxification and How to Detox?
As you all know that eating habits make a huge difference in your life.

But if you keep following an unhealthy lifestyle you will soon notice drop in your looks and energy level.
If you continue following an unhealthy life pattern, soon you will also suffer from minor health problems like colds, constipation, dropping energy levels and an inactive stressful life. Before understanding detoxification let us delve deeper into how toxins form in our bodies. Toxins are basically substances which have adverse effects on your body. These substances are sometimes produced naturally in the body and other times they can enter in our body from sources like Pollutants in the air, chemicals, alcohol, caffeine, drugs and medications etc.
Such harmful toxins can lead to a continual decrease in your energy levels and immunity. So it is important to get rid of all of these harmful toxins to follow a healthier lifestyle. Detoxifying is the way through which our body gets rid of all those harmful toxins- this process occurs naturally in our body all the time. But the problem emerge when we intake more toxins than our body detox machine can efficiently handle.
