Detoxification is a natural process that takes place in the body, neutralising and eliminating various toxins in your diet.
These toxins are substances that can potentially harm body cells and tissues. They can be the product of normal cell activity in the form of lactic acid, other waste products, or chemicals that we are exposed to through our food, water or from the general environment.
Your body’s organs will work to transform toxins into less harmful compounds and eventually excrete them from the body. As mentioned in our post about ACV and liver health, it is organs like the liver, intestines, kidneys and lungs that work together with your blood, skin and lymphatic system to complete this process.
Many believe that certain diets and foods can be consumed to improve the process of detoxification, such as Apple Cider Vinegar, to help support your body.
