How Does Water Help Remove Harmful Toxins from Your Digestive Tract?

1 | 2

First of all…What are these creepy toxins that seem to invade our body?

Toxins are actually a normal part of the body's intake of food and oxygen. In a digestion process, the bowel disposes of toxins from the digestive system and the liver helps clear the way for other organs to function properly and help rid of those unwanted toxins. Your body is actually able to detoxify itself in a natural manner with the use of its lungs, liver, and kidneys.

Problem solved?

Not quite... When our bodies are bombarded with unfamiliar toxins, producing too many toxins, or not eliminating toxins effectively, the toxins build up and can cause health problems. Then it is time for a detoxification program—supporting the body’s natural elimination process and preventing the day-to-day buildup of toxicity with Water. Beverages such as coffee, tea, sports drinks, soda, and other sugary drinks, however, will cause more problems than high blood sugar because your body needs more water to flush out these fluids from your body, leaving you dehydrated. Other than that, many of these drinks contain unnatural ingredients which add to the toxins that our bodies must help us flush out.

It’s beneficial to have a certain knowledge of detoxification: understanding the link between feeling subpar and toxicity, understanding where toxins come from, and understanding what you can do to help yourself: Drinking water is instrumental in detoxification.

But how does water help remove toxins?

Water keeps our organs functioning well, lubricates and cushions our joints, and it regulates our body temperature and metabolism. Moreover, water flushes toxins and waste from the body and transports nutrients to where they are needed. Without water, the contents of your colon can dry out and get stuck, eventually causing constipation. Water is a natural lubricant that softens stool and promotes evacuation of the bowels.

Water is also important to kidney systems. Our kidney system is unique in its filtering capabilities and totally dependent upon water in order for it to work. The kidneys remove waste products from the blood, eliminate toxic substances in the urine, and receive water-soluble toxins from the liver for processing. They filter voluminous amounts of blood each day and in doing so maintain the body’s water balance and excrete toxins and excess fluid through the bladder. Daily fluid intake is essential for our bodies to function efficiently.
