You already have a remarkably effective, built-in cleansing system. It’s called bowel movement (or “pooping,” if you want to get scientific).
Most “detox” and “cleansing” products/protocols are scams. Here’s what you need to do: eat better quality food, and let your body do its thing.
This is not to say that I’m against things like juicing, the golden calf of detox devotees. On the contrary, I love juicing, and I own a pretty snazzy juicer. In the photo to the left I'm drinking spinach juice with a dash of cayenne pepper. It was legitimately delicious -- spicy, earthy, and a little sweet.
Juicing is a great way to get extra vegetables into your diet, and -- dead serious -- appreciate their unique sweetness and flavor bouquet.
That’s right, “bowel movement” and “flavor bouquet” in the same post. Sorry. (Not sorry.)
This article from Precision Nutrition goes into further, excellent detail on detoxing, and I highly recommend you take 15 minutes and read it. But if you don’t, here’s what you need to know about staying “cleansed”:
1) Make water your primary beverage, and drink a lot of it.
2) Eat a lot (like, a LOT) of berries and vegetables. Raw, cooked, and freshly juiced are all cool.
3) Work up a sweat as often as possible.
4) Have one or two bowel movements every day.
5) Do NOT buy powders, potions, or pills that promise to “detoxify” you. Take that money and devote it to number 2: good quality food.
