Doing a “cleanse” is sometimes seen as a trend, yet to truly benefit your body a cleanse involves more than several bottles of juice as your body and your mind can still be affected by toxins if your liver gets overworked.
The liver plays an important role in several functions of the body, primarily aiding in detoxification by acting as the body’s filter for blood coming from the digestive tract to the rest of the body, which makes it crucial for it to function properly.
If the liver is not functioning properly, the rest of the body is affected, which is why it is crucial to maintain a low level of toxicity in the bloodstream. Toxins damage enzymes and consequently impair a range of bodily functions—inhibiting the production of hemoglobin in the blood or lowering the body’s capacity to prevent the free-radical damage that accelerates aging.
Bisphenol-A (BPA) and Bisphenol-S (BPS): These chemicals are sometimes used in the manufacturing of polycarbonate plastics, such as drink bottles and toys. They can leach into food or drinks from the containers holding them. Canned goods are also a source of BPA as they are often lined with plastic. Research has linked BPA exposure, even at low doses, to cardiovascular problems including coronary artery heart disease, heart attacks, hypertension, and peripheral artery disease.
Chlorine: The most common disinfection techniques used at water treatment facilities today involve the use of chlorine and chlorine dioxide to kill harmful, microorganisms in the water, making it safe to drink. Unfortunately, toxic chemical by-products can be formed when these disinfectants react with natural organic matter like decaying plant matter in the water. Studies show that chlorine can also be absorbed through the skin and can enter straight into the bloodstream. Too much chlorine in the body can cause nausea, respiratory issues, and a burning sensation in eyes, nose and throat.
Phthalates: This toxin is found in soft plastics such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), as well as many toiletries, including shampoo, toothpaste, and cosmetics. Phthalates are one of the most pervasive type of endocrine disrupting chemicals discovered and have been linked to a wide range of developmental and reproductive effects.
Pesticides: These chemicals are not limited to farmland. Pesticides can be found in weedkillers and pet flea products as well as insecticides and garden pesticides. Local authorities regularly spray weedkiller in all public places including schools.
Alcohol: This may be one of the most common, and forgotten, toxins in the body. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that adults of legal drinking age can choose not to drink, or to drink in moderation by limiting intake to 2 drinks or less in a day for men or 1 drink or less in a day for women, on days when alcohol is consumed. Excessive drinking is associated with an increased risk for many health issues, such as liver disease (hepatitis and cirrhosis), irregular heart rhythms and heart failure, stomach ulcers, brain damage, stroke, cancer (especially of the breast, colon, liver, esophagus, or throat), sleep difficulty, osteoporosis, malnutrition, depression, high blood pressure, dementia, difficulty concentrating, depression, weight gain, and anxiety.
