The theory behind detoxifying is that, by eliminating solid foods or specific food groups, you are eliminating toxins. This gives your digestive system a break, allowing it to heal and better absorb nutrients in the future. Within eight hours after eating our last meal the processes of absorption, digestion, and assimilation are completed and our bodies enter into detoxification mode, a function many of us don’t think about often. A healthy body, used to eating natural foods, needs around four hours to cleanse and detoxify itself from all the waste products of normal metabolism. This is without counting the toxic overload of modern life.
Detoxification refers to biological processes that are happening all of the time in order to eliminate waste. The body removes toxic byproducts of cellular metabolism and normal body functioning, along with environmental toxins that make their way into the body. In order for your body to effectively do its detoxification job, the liver requires a lot of nutrition in the form of amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals.
