The influence of toxins in this modern world is inevitable, they are everywhere; in the food we eat, in the air we breathe and in the daily products we use. They are present in our homes, in the dust, furniture, cleaning products and even in foods of natural origin. Most of us are aware of their negative influence and the need to regularly detoxify our body so that it can be protected from the onset of various diseases as a result of the negative impact of the toxins.
The human body has its own defenses against the influence of toxins, but due to the high presence of them everywhere around us these body organs get overwhelmed and cannot perform their optimal functions. Therefore, we should start to make the right choices when the intake of food is concerned and the products we use. In that way we can minimize the negative effects of the toxins and their harmful nature.
The Negative Impact of Toxins on Our Body
- Hormonal imbalances
The hormonal imbalance can result in unexplainable extreme fatigue. The reason for that is the influence of toxins that can induce, inhibit, mimic and even block hormones. For instance, some toxins hinder the thyroid hormone receptors in cells which results in not getting the information that they need to enhance their metabolism.
- Damage of cell membranes
When the cell membranes are damaged the signaling of the cell membranes is impeded that hampers the proper function of the body.
- Improper body function
The enzymes that are present in the body are in charge for many physiological functions. These enzymes make the molecules, produce energy or create cellular structures. Toxins damage these enzymes and in that way hamper many body functions like inhibiting the production of hemoglobin in the blood or by reducing the body’s ability to neutralize the caused damage by the free radicals that speedup the aging process.
- Damaged detox organs
The overwhelming of toxins in the digestive tract, liver, and kidneys will lead to their improper functions thus impeding them in properly detoxifying the body. This will result in occurrence of many health issues that can even endanger our own existence.
- Modification of the expression of genes
Toxins negatively influence the expression of our genes as they have the ability to adapt to changes in our body and our external environment. If the body is packed with toxins it will lead to undesirable reflection of their presence.
Due to all these negative effects you need to try to detox your body from time to time so that to restore the proper functions of the detox body organs.
This detox diet will be of great help in the cleansing of the body.
