Our body is constantly exposed to toxins. Nevertheless, the human being is the most sophisticated machine that can exist, our body being conditioned to get rid of it naturally. The liver removes fat-soluble toxins, kidneys, water-soluble toxins, intestines, undigested toxins, and skin metabolic toxins. However, sometimes our metabolism is saturated with waste and is unable to perform its functions effectively. To help your body, it is important to consume so-called “detoxifying” foods that, in addition to helping you clean it, will also help you lose weight.
Have you tried all weight-loss diets, to no avail? This can be explained by the fact that your body is overloaded with toxins, ipso facto slowing down your metabolism. By incorporating certain foods into your diet, you can purify your body and speed up your weight loss process.
Detoxify to be healthier
Poor food choices can make you feel constipated, bloated and tired, among other annoyances. Fortunately, Mother Nature offers us all the solutions to get rid of it. Indeed, simple little changes in your eating habits can make all the difference. Thus, no need to follow a restrictive diet to feel healthier.
For starters, it’s important to know that to avoid toxin overload and keep your body functioning properly it is necessary to:
Do not drink alcohol
Avoid too fatty foods
Do not consume slimming capsules (drainers, appetite suppressants, fat blockers …)
Practice regular physical activity
Use painkillers and other medications only when necessary. Prefer natural remedies.

Why does it work?
For Winston Churchill, just eat an apple a day to stop going to the doctor. Far from the field of health, this political figure was still not far from reality. Indeed, this fruit is rich in vitamins, zinc, copper, potassium, phosphorus, and manganese. Moreover, thanks to its fiber and water content, the apple makes you feel full longer, helping you to reduce your caloric intake. Pectin, a soluble fiber that plays the role of prebiotic, nourishes the good bacteria in your gut thereby stimulating the digestive process.
Exotic fruit appreciated by all (or almost), pineapple is a fruit with many virtues especially when it comes to helping you lose weight. Indeed, the latter helps fight against the accumulation of fat deposits in addition to stimulating metabolism. The bromelain, one of its main components, improves the digestion process thereby ensuring better assimilation of food.
Recognized for its multiple health benefits, the drug use of this spice dates back to ancient times. Several studies have now shown that to some extent, cinnamon has a positive effect on blood sugar. Also, it has been shown that Cinnamaldehyde, its active compound, can promote thermogenesis thus helping you to burn calories more efficiently.
Cinnamon is contraindicated for people suffering from heart disease, stomach ulcers, pregnant women, young children and people with allergies to this plant.
