We are often inclined to do an annual ‘spring clean’ of our homes, but what about our bodies?

Spring is a time when we move out of a period of conservation and into a more active phase. It is the perfect opportunity to give our body’s detoxification systems a boost with a gentle cleanse. Just as the birds, insects and animals come out of hibernation, so too does the human system shake off the cobwebs in preparation for a busy summer period.

The body has a fabulous, intelligent detoxification system already installed. The liver, kidneys and other organs of the digestive system spearhead the major detoxification processes. When working as they should, they effectively rid our bodies of poisons that could cause health problems if left unmanaged.

How does detoxification work?

The liver is crucial in getting rid of toxins. First, it breaks them down and then packages them into forms that can be excreted by the digestive system or kidneys. B vitamins, zinc, sulphur, amino acids and the anti-oxidant vitamins E and C are required by the liver to do its work properly. If you don’t get enough of these nutrients, the process of detoxification will be compromised.
