If you really want to appreciate your need for detox and to get motivated, you’d better know about the main systems and organs that your body uses to detoxify itself. These are the liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs, skin and lymphatic system, which play a major role in keeping your body clean and toxin free.

1. The Liver

The liver has a wide range of functions, including detoxification, protein synthesis, and production of biochemicals necessary for digestion.


This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including filtering the blood and producing enzymes to destroy toxins that come from our food, water and the air.

The liver prepares these toxins so the body can expel them through urine or your bile. If your liver is overloaded, it slows down its function and thus contributes to toxins accumulated in your blood. A detox plan will aim to reduce your liver’s load, so it performs at its best.

2. The Intestines

The intestines are where digested food passes through and where nutrients are absorbed. They also balance the good and bad bacteria, helping the body to digest better and produce natural antibiotics to break down toxins.


If you have an unhealthy diet, you may damage your digestive process so that the digested food remains in your gut and your body may reabsorb the toxins. A detox plan will improve your digestive process and maintain the balance between the good and bad bacteria.

3. The Kidneys

The kidneys are essential part of the urinary system. They serve the body as a natural filter of the blood, and remove waste which is diverted to the urinary bladder. In producing urine, the kidneys excrete waste such as urea and ammonium. A detox plan will help with these processes and relieves the pressure on your kidneys.

4. The Lungs

The lungs are the essential respiration organs in our body. Their principal function is to transport oxygen from the atmosphere into the bloodstream, and to release carbon dioxide from the bloodstream into the atmosphere.

We may breathe toxins in the air through our lungs, but the lungs are also able to expel toxins. We can breathe deeply and fully exhale to maximize the cleansing effect.

5. The skin

Sweating is the production of fluids secreted by the sweat glands in our skin. Sweating not only allows the body to regulate its temperature, but also provides detoxification by expelling toxins through sweat. A detox program will help in the long term to achieve a healthy glowing skin.

6. The lymphatic system

The lymph is the fluid that circulates throughout the lymphatic system and is part of our immune system. The lymph contains white blood cells that pick up bacteria or other toxins from the body’s cells and bring them to lymph nodes where they are destroyed.

The lymph moves around the body by breathing and muscle contraction, so breathing and mild exercise help it to work better.
