But do they work?
Sure detoxes are popular, but are they proven to do what they say they'll do? “Flush toxins out of your system”? Detox cleanses rarely identify the specific toxins they aim to remove.
In fact, there is little to no evidence that detox diets remove any toxins from your body.
The body is amazingly designed and capable of cleansing itself through the liver, feces, urine, and sweat. Your liver's function is to make toxic substances harmless, then ensure that they'rereleased from your body. However, there are a few chemicals that may not be as easily removed by these processes, including persistent organic pollutants(POPs), phthalates, bisphenol A (BPA), and heavy metals.
These tend to accumulate in fat tissue or blood and can take a very long time, sometimes even years for your body to flush out naturally. However, there is little evidence that detox diets help eliminate any of these compounds.
