What Really Comes Out of Your Body When You Detox?
 If you're like most people, the word "detox" conjures up visions of juice cleanses, cayenne pepper-lemonade concoctions, and days spent on the toilet. And while it's true that a good detox can lead to some powerful eliminations, there's a lot more to it than that. Here's a quick rundown of what really happens when you detox.

Detoxing jumpstarts your lymphatic system. 
Your lymphatic system is responsible for transporting lymph—a clear fluid that contains white blood cells—around your body. This system doesn't have a pump like your heart does, so it relies on things like deep breathing, muscle contraction, and even dry brushing to move the lymph through your body. When you detox, you encourage the flow of lymph by doing things like sweating and dry brushing, which helps to move toxins out of your system and improve your overall immunity.

Detoxing can help to clear up your skin. 
One of the liver's main functions is to filter toxins out of your blood. But when there are too many toxins for it to handle, they get excreted through your skin in the form of acne, eczema, or other skin issues. By detoxing and giving your liver a break, you can help to clear up your skin and improve its overall appearance.

Detoxing supports healthy digestion. 
Your digestive system is home to billions of bacteria—some good, some bad. The good bacteria help you to digest food properly and absorb nutrients from what you eat. But when the bad bacteria start to take over, it can lead to things like bloating, gas, and constipation. A good detox can help to rebalance the bacteria in your gut and support healthy digestion. 

If you're thinking about doing a detox, there are lots of benefits to consider—beyond just weight loss or clearing up your skin. Detoxing can also help to boost your immunity, support healthy digestion, and even give your energy levels a much-needed boost. So whether you're looking to kickstart your health journey or just want to give your body a little TLC, a detox might be just what you need!
