Cleanses and Detoxes!


 

Registered Dietitian, Andy Bellati says "our bodies are already pretty good at removing toxins. If they weren't, and you needed a yearly detox we'd all be probably dead". Yes, because Liver is the main organ to detox all toxins naturally. To do that it needs Carbs ( glucose), Fat (fattyacids), and Proteins (amino acids).
