In recent years, Americans have spent around $100 million annually on products and strategies that promise to quickly detox the body. Maybe you know someone who has tried a juice cleanse and given up after about the 4th day, or maybe you have tried to detox yourself before. If you have, or if you're looking to start a detox program, then there's good news: detoxing your body does not have to be terrifying. It turns out that detoxing is as simple as making healthy choices and cleaning up your environment.
Drinking plenty of water is one of the easiest ways to detox yourself. Water helps the body flush out toxins by moving along the cellular processes that are responsible for cleaning up toxins in the body. Although there is some discussion about the amount of water a person needs a day, making water your drink of choice and eliminating drinks life coffee, soda, and sugary fruit juices is a great first step to cleansing your body!
