The 3 Key Processes to Natural Detox

The human body is an incredible machine. It’s easy to see when you realize the body performs many of its most important processes automatically, without us thinking about it at all. It digests our food, fuels our cells, battles microbes, and filters many chemicals out of the air we breathe and liquids we consume. As our body processes these things, we get life-generating elements like oxygen, water, amino acids, and energy molecules.

But there is a cost.

During these life-giving activities, our body builds up toxic byproducts that can reduce our ability to maintain a healthy, fit body. If left unchecked, this buildup can cause long term health risks. Modern health practitioners are addressing this issue by prescribing foods and an array of natural supplements that work to detox these natural systems. In this article, we’ll discuss the 3 primary detoxification processes and how to keep these systems running optimally.

1. Digestive Detox

The chemicals we take in through the foods and liquids we consume can bog down the effectiveness and efficiency of our digestive system. This is critically important to our health status as digestion breaks down and absorbs the proteins, carbs, fats (macronutrients), vitamins, and minerals (micronutrients) we eat that repair, maintain, and fuel our body. But it’s not all about digestion. This system also eliminates the waste products that must be removed from the body on a regular basis.

The best approach for improving digestive health is to make smarter food choices and incorporate science-backed support nutrients.
