Do you know, we are always inhaling or swallowing harmful substances present in the environment. These toxins accumulate and lead to fatigue, brain fog, a poor immune system, obesity or even diseases. The body tries to get rid of these toxins to an extent. There are biochemical reactions that take place in the body which create waste products that needs to be eliminated or excreted from our body. Diet plays a huge role in this and it's amazing at the variety of natural foods available around us, that help in removing toxins from our body. We can't do much about the air we breathe, but we can purify the water we drink and choose to eat and drink healthy. Eliminate saturated fats, sugary foods and junk food. Smoking and alchohol consumption also creates toxins in our body. Chemical cleaning agents, aerosol sprays, air freshners, creams, lotions - they all contain chemicals that our bodies do not require. One of the reasons, why it's important to exercise, is toxins get eliminated through sweat. I'ts equally important to drink 8 to 10 glasses of water everyday. It aids in flushing out toxins.
