Detox is a fashionable word these days. The world and its grandmother are involved in various kinds of detox diets. But bingeing on food and alcohol and then going on a special ‘detox diet’ isn’t going to help your liver in any way. The problems with such a lifestyle are many:
1. If you have alcohol and food excessively, you are overburdening your liver. At some point, if this continues, you can develop liver problems.
2. Most detox diets are unhealthy, as they require you to cut down on many nutrients and good fats that your body needs.
3. Such yo-yoing with your diet weakens the body, instead of strengthening it. Your body needs a consistent lifestyle, which helps it get stronger and fitter.
That’s not to say that a binge here or there will have a harmful effect on the body. When that happens, you need a good detox drink!
This amazing detox drink with lemon, ginger, and turmeric will not only help with better digestion and improved liver function, it is also an effective anti-inflammatory drink, and can help with joint pains, amongst other benefits.
