detox drinks

Detox drinks are made up of one or more plants with purifying, detoxifying, draining, diuretic or laxative effects.

The goal

Their objective is to eliminate toxins and waste by purifying the emunctory organs, namely: the liver; the intestines; kidneys; lungs and skin to allow them to eliminate in the best possible way.

Why do a detox?

Our organs can be overloaded for several reasons such as: industrial food; salt; sugar; bad fats; colorants and preservatives; medication ; external pollution and toxins produced by our body.

Of course, detox drinks won't work miracles, but at least they will help reduce toxins in your body.

How often to do a cure?

The cures are generally between one to three weeks once a year.

It is advisable to do your detox cure during seasonal changes, especially during spring and autumn, but also at the end of the cycle in women or at menopause to promote the elimination of waste caused by major hormonal changes. 

NB: It is important to take into account the opinion of a health professional before starting a detox cure.
