Today’s modern way of life leaves little time for a healthy and well-balanced diet. As a result, most people turn to convenience or ready-made food, which is not only depleted in nutrients (due to the fact that it’s highly processed), but also full of harmful additives. Unless the produce is organic, even the fruit and vegetables you buy at the supermarket are laden with pesticides.
Needless to mention, long-term consumption of such food can seriously affect the function of your liver – the most important organ responsible for eliminating toxins from your body.
According to health experts, liver detox is something everyone should practice every now and then. By doing a liver detox, you don’t only remove harmful toxins that build up in your liver, but, you also improve the absorption of the proteins and their synthesis. In other words, a liver detox will boost overall liver function.
The best way to protect yourself against illnesses such as hepatitis or fatty liver is to cleanse your liver regularly.
