What is detox?
The word 'de-tox' literally stands for the removal of waste products (toxins) from the body. That has to deal with a lot on a daily basis. Think of stress, poor nutrition, alcohol, smoking, air pollution and drug use. Fortunately, our bodies are naturally able to process a large part of those toxins. Our liver takes care of that. This smart and essential organ 'cuts' toxins into small pieces and ensures that the waste is excreted via the kidneys, bladder and intestines.
