Our bodies are built to handle and detox as many toxins through the liver, colon, and kidneys. However, we are still exposed to harmful elements from our environment, food, and chemicals every day. Plus, certain lifestyles can hinder our natural detoxification system.
To combat this, a regular intake of simple detox drinks can be beneficial to our health for rejuvenation. It can aid in weight loss, boost metabolism, and improve digestion, which is highly sought-after. Here are my 5 best drinks for detox and body cleansing.
