We are living in conditions far from ideal. Food and water contamination are the biggest threats in our lives. But the danger doesn’t just lie there, consumer products are full of toxic substances too. And all these substances when enter in our body, they stay there for a long time. What are these toxins and how you can detox them is very important for your healthy life? Let’s learn.
First thing’s first, toxins love to stick to fat. Eventually, toxicity is the highest in gluten, GMOs, Synthetic sugar, antibiotics, peanuts, animal sources of dietary fat, food allergens and foods with high glycation. Toxins also enter our body through air, alcohol, electromagnetic waves, heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, smoking, plastic, air conditioners, and of course, secondary sources of toxins such as second-hand smoke, gases and residue from factories etc. Why toxins are so bad? Apart from the apparent reasons, toxins turn the mitochondria, also known as the powerhouse of the cell, poisonous, thus stopping our body from producing energy. They also cause oxidative stress and several other sorts of imbalances in our body.
However, no matter how inevitable they seem, they can be expelled from the body through essential minerals, since they can bind to toxins. Minerals such as Iron, Magnesium, Selenium, and of course, Calcium. This is why our nutritionists stress on consuming whole foods more and more.
Another important point to keep in mind is how you prepare your food determines a lot. Streaming is better than grilling, grilling is better than frying. Advanced Glycation End products are created on higher temperatures such as roasting and frying. They subsequently cause high blood pressure and raise sugar levels.
