Detoxification, more commonly called “detox”, is a natural process that neutralizes and eliminates the toxins that enter the body, so as to find normal physiological functions (enhanced immunity, better quality of sleep, vitality, hormonal balance …).
Detoxification involves multiple reactions and involves 5 emunctory organs, each having functions of barrier, neutralization and elimination: the liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs and skin. These organs will limit the entry of toxic and carcinogenic substances into the body (barrier role), neutralize them and eliminate them.
The liver plays a major role in the process of detoxifying the body. Its functions are many, but one of the main is to neutralize toxic compounds by allowing their elimination.
