How Detoxification Can Help Your Body

Here’s a little known fact: good immunity begins with good gut health. The digestive system is the central hub of health in our bodies, so making sure it’s functioning at peak performance will play a vital role in keeping you well.

Natural detoxification is a great way to maintain healthy digestion while flushing out toxins that can negatively affect our overall health. While others tend to vaguely mention the term “detox” without really explaining its advantages, we’ve compiled the exact reasons why detoxification provides awesome benefits for our bodies.

Reducing Harmful Toxins

Although there are several toxins we encounter in our day-to-day lives, the two we’ll be focusing on tend to be of the most prevalent.

Nitrates are known to occur naturally in the human body and can be sourced from some foods and the water you drink. A stable nitrate level is nothing to fuss about, but a high level can build up when the body is dehydrated. This can be caused by lack of fluids blocking the body from flushing the nitrates out.

Ammonia is another potentially harmful toxin that can lead to feeling overly tired or confused, with the more serious health concerns relating to brain function. Ammonia is a waste product that the body processes and expels through the liver.

These buildups and blockages demonstrate why it is crucial to have your digestive system working properly to avoid the spread of toxins.

Increasing Nutrient Absorption

When we eat, food travels to the stomach to be broken down into molecules, shipped to the small intestine, and then finally settling into our bloodstream. We then use those nutrients to power the body and keep us going strong.

If this process isn’t working, you’ll end up losing too many of those much-needed nutrients. A healthy stomach can make the difference in getting the most out of your food choices.

Maintaining Healthy Regularity

Our digestive tract can provide good insight into the state of our bodies. Irregularities in the bathroom happen sometimes, but if you find yourself visiting it too often, detoxification may be right for you. Remember, constipation can mean your system is not flushing out the waste effectively, while diarrhea will rid the fluid our bodies need to remain hydrated to help flush out toxins.

Holiday Detox Smoothie Recipe

Detox Smoothie Recipe with Aloe


The Holiday season is upon us, and with it comes wonderful time spent with friends and family, eating delicious foods and treats piled on top of each other in ginormous mounds, forcing us to loosen a few buttons on our pants.  We all do it, even though we know we shouldn’t and it is not good for us to pile on the calories like that, but it only comes a couple times a year, so we just let ourselves go.  But then the guilt comes; “Why did I have 3 helpings of stuffing ladled on top of mashed potatoes?!”.  But with all the goodies that come during a holiday meal, it is easy to get way off course. Our bodies are in overload, shocked that they could fit that much food into one meal.  You need to bring balance back your system so that it can go back to absorbing the necessary nutrients to keep you healthy.  Time to detox.

Toxins play a big role in keeping your cells from absorbing nutrients when they need them, causing your body to have oxidative stress and be more susceptible to illness.  And this time of year, with cooler temps and everyone else around us getting sick, we have to keep our health in check even more.

Here is a simple recipe for a detox smoothie that includes our Aloe Vera Juice made with Aloesorb that has been clinically proven to help reduce toxins in the body.
