Detoxification is the cleansing of the body or removal of toxins from the body.
Twaha Yabata, a senior nutritionist with Medical Teams International (MTI) says, during detoxing, the body eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system, and skin.
Meanwhile, the liver and kidneys naturally remove toxins and other harmful substances from the body.
However, you can also add fruits and vegetables to your diet and promote the removal of those toxins as well.
