Liver and Gallbladder Detox: What are the Benefits?

How to detox the healthy way.

Spring is here, and that means it’s time to open the windows and clean out your closets! Spring cleaning is a common tradition this time of year, but can you do a “spring clean” for your body? With the right detox, you can.
The trouble is that many people take on a detox that’s not right for their bodies, and are left feeling weary, hungry, and even sick. For others, the thought of a detox sounds nice, but it’s too intimidating and complicated to start.
Detoxing doesn’t have to be stressful or unsafe. Moringa Natural Health Center, we take a personalized approach to detoxing and guide you through a program that’s right for you. Let’s learn more about liver and gallbladder detoxes and how to know if it’s right for you.

What is a Liver and Gallbladder Detox?

There are many types of detoxes, but liver and gallbladder detoxes tend to be the most common.
The liver has over 500 functions in the body – and neutralizing toxins and purifying your blood is one of its main jobs. The more toxins we encounter (through food, air, the environment, cleaning and personal care products, and more), the harder the liver has to work to do its job.
The gallbladder works with the liver to help the body digest fats. Through poor diet or genetics, some people experience gallstones, which are hardened deposits that develop in the gallbladder ducts and cause a range of symptoms (like abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting).
A cleanse or detox can help the liver rest, recover, and rejuvenate itself. This can lead to better liver and gallbladder function, better digestion, improved energy, weight loss, healthier skin, a stronger immune system, and more!

Is Detoxing Safe?

Sadly, detoxing has gotten a bad rap due to unhealthy and extreme practices. Some people try extreme detoxes, like fasting, then eating tablespoons of olive oil and lemon juice, or eating only one food type (like grapefruit) for days.
Unfortunately, these types of detoxes don’t have much research behind them and could damage your digestive system. In essence, detoxing is a natural and normal process that the body does naturally. With a guided detox that’s focused on restoring health – and not achieving unrealistic weight loss goals – you can enjoy many health benefits safely.

It’s best to work with a naturopath or other licensed healthcare professional to make sure you detox in a way that supports your body, not sabotages it.

3 Benefits of a Safe Spring Liver and Gallbladder Detox

Ready to spring clean your digestive system? Here are three of the most common benefits people experience after doing one of our Moringa Natural Health Center cleanses.
  1. Healthy weight loss. A driving reason many people want to start a detox is to lose weight. After a long winter of eating hearty food and splurging on holiday treats, many of us struggle to slip into our spring clothes. A detox helps you lose extra weight safely and sustainably. During this time, you’ll lose extra toxins and waste that is sitting in your intestinal tract. You’ll also burn more fat, reset your appetite, and moderate your cravings for sugar, salt, and fats.

  2. Improved natural energy. If you constantly find yourself reaching for a coffee or soda to get you through the afternoon, a sluggish system could be your problem. When the liver is overburdened with toxins, it takes more and more energy to do even simple daily functions. That leaves your energy reserves for other tasks (like problem-solving or exercising) low. A detox takes the burden off the liver and digestive system so you can replenish your energy reserves. You’re bound to feel more energized, rested, and focused after your detox.

  3. Stronger immune system. In spring, issues like allergies, colds, the flu, skin conditions, and other issues abound. If you’re working with a congested liver and systemic inflammation, your immune system is already in overdrive and is more likely to fall victim to these springtime woes. With a spring detox, however, you can clear out this old inflammation and toxins, reset your liver, and keep allergies and infections at bay.
