Your body is packed with organs, such as the colon, liver, and the kidneys, that deal with the toxins that get into your body everyday. It has its own mechanisms and processes that keep the body away from waste materials and chemicals. For example it uses alkaline materials to neutralize acids.
Detoxification is a natural process that the body can perform. The problem is, when the organs responsible for this natural process is overwhelmed by all the toxins from processed foods, air pollution, and unhealthy eating habits, the body’s ability to cope up is low. The toxins are stored in the body and will soon become toxic when they stay there for a long period of time. You need to give your body the resources it needs to get rid of these wastes.
One way of getting bio-available nutrients into your body is by drinking juices. All the nutrients that you get from fruit juices will help your cells function well in getting rid of waste products. Remember to use organic fruits or a mixture of organic fruits and vegetables to get the best amount of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants needed by the body.
Pomegranate juice for cleansing your system is a good idea. Though the fruit is only native to areas like Iran and the Himalayas, it has attracted a lot of attention because of its potential to fight, prevent, and heal diseases. What it can do to the body is amazing. Pomegranate juice is known to contain almost three times the amount of antioxidants found in green tea or red wine. It also has almost the same amount of potassium as a banana has. When preparing this juice, you can use the whole fruit including the shell. There are also readily made juices available in the market. However, if you are lucky enough to buy a fresh, raw pomegranate, then that would be better.
