As time goes by the body can become filled with toxins from stress, the foods and drinks you consume, everyday pollutants, and more. These toxins can then lead you to feel tired, irritable, and generally run down, which can greatly compromise your quality of life.
When you get to this point, it is important to know that body detoxes and cleanses are readily available. A body detox can help remove the pollutants within the body so that you feel better, stronger, and live longer. Many foods are rich in antioxidants and plenty of supplements, exercises, and even medications exist that can also do the trick. There are also a variety of benefits that come along with regular body cleanses that can really work wonders on your health and wellness.
What is Body Detoxification?
Detoxification is a process that effectively removes toxins from the body. Many people call this process a “cleanse” because the goal is to cleanse the body quickly through a few different means. Herbal detoxification regimens, vitamin supplements, and a change of diet are all ways in which to start a body detox. Such cleanses are often beneficial to one’s overall health and can help maintain the ordinary bodily functions that can become slowed down due to too many toxins within the system.
Body detoxes are helpful, but they must not be attempted too often. A complete cleanse works best when executed a few times a year or when you are feeling especially run down and tired. You can keep up a “continuous” cleanse however by creating a diet filled with antioxidant rich foods, plenty of exercise, and other natural lifestyle changes.

Spinach is the most mild tasting green (and the most popular green smoothie ingredient), which makes it a great leaf for beginners to add to smoothies. But we don’t want you to miss out on all the additional nutrients found in other leafy greens, so it’s time to change it up! Some benefits of rotating your leafy greens:
