Before we learn what detox is, let’s what is the toxin? Toxin means poison. Toxins are produced both in our bodies and taken from the outside. Detox means to get rid of the harmful toxins entering our body in any way or produced by our body and waiting to be thrown out as waste. It is a Latin word and short form of the concept of Detoxification.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF DETOX?
The purpose of Detox is to protect our health by purifying our body from toxins, to prevent the acidification of the fluids in our bodies, maintain the acid-base balance. In a healthy body, blood and body fluids are expected to be slightly alkaline. Alkali body fluid and oxygen in the body are also the basis of a strong immune system. Blood acidification can damage our organs and brain cells.
