Our liver, the master metabolizer, filters the entire blood volume every three minutes.All our organs have their special role, however it is the master detox liver that processes and neutralizes all the chemicals our body is exposed to, from our food, environment, or personal care products. In healthy diets, juice cleanses, soup Cleanses . or detox diets, when we consume appreciable quantities of vegetables and fruits, our cells receive high concentrations of potassium which flushes out excess water and toxins, creating an alkaline environment.
The toxins are then sent via the bloodstream to the liver, which neutralizes them for excretion either by the kidneys or through the colon, via the bile. During detox diets, lots of toxins are flushed out from our cells, so the liver is exposed to a greater pressure and needs to be stimulated to cope with the higher bile production. A healthy production of bile is essential for eliminating the toxins, so we should help the liver with key nutrients, such as antioxidants and fiber.
