Do you sometimes feel heavy and bloated? What causes this feeling is the accumulation of toxins in the body. They cause bloating and promote fat storage in the body. Everything goes wrong and the body no longer feels at its best. This is often a sign that you must put the record straight and cleanse the body of all that dirt.
Toxins accumulate in the body over time due to poor diet, lack of physical activities, an accumulation of stress and an unhealthy lifestyle in general. The toxins may be responsible for several discomforts and diseases: obesity, digestive disorders, kidney problems, cardiovascular disease, skin problems, joint inflammation, etc.
During our life, the body can gain several pounds of toxins and few of us know how to get rid of them. Often, it is believed that resorting to proper nutrition is enough, or we would first go through a detox process before (re)adopting good habits. And detox can be done by eating the right foods that cleanse the body of waste. Here are the most effective foods.
