‘Detoxes’ and ‘Cleanses’ Don’t Work: Your Kidneys & Liver Do… And They’re Mostly Water.

Your body doesn’t need to be detoxed; it’s already doing a very good job of this itself.

There is no scientific evidence to suggest that detox diets actually work, yet the word ‘detox’ has been hijacked by charlatans selling green juice and colon cleanses.

If toxins really did build up in a way your body couldn’t excrete, you’d either be dead or in need of serious medical intervention.

“The healthy body has kidneys, a liver, skin, even lungs that are detoxifying as we speak,” says Edzard Ernst, emeritus professor of complementary medecine at Exeter University. “There is no known way – certainly not through detox treatments – to make something that works perfectly well in a healthy body work better.” [1]

The body already has four major detoxification organs:

  • Liver — acts like a filter in preventing toxic substances contained in foods from passing into your blood stream
  • Kidneys — are constantly filtering your blood and getting rid of toxins in the form of urine
  • Colon — contains bacteria that produce both healthy and unhealthy chemicals. You want to keep your bowel movements regular since its main role is to flush out toxic chemicals before they can do you any harm
  • Lungs — are able to eliminate toxins that enter your body via breathing.

These organs are composed of mostly water. This means that if you are dehydrated, you might not be giving your body enough of what it needs.

The cells in our bodies are full of water, while the carbohydrates and proteins that our bodies use as food are metabolized and transported by water in the bloodstream.
