What is a Detox, and Why Do One?

Whether you’re trying to get in shape or just improve your overall health, detoxing may be able to help you. A detox is a natural, nutrient-dense diet that helps you cleanse your body and help more efficiently remove toxins. Unlike regular diets, a detox is short term and should only be done periodically. There are many different kinds of detoxes, and they all work in different ways to cleanse the body. Depending on the detox you choose, it may involve fasting or strict dietary restrictions. They may also differ in length depending on what part of the body you choose to cleanse and what your end goal is.

When it comes to knowing which products to use and how long to use them to detox properly, it can be confusing. We’ve created this guide to inform you of the different types of detoxes and what they can be used for.

Long-Term Detox

A long-term detox is typically 5 days to a week, sometimes even longer. These detoxes can be very intensive and difficult to do because they can involve a highly restrictive diet. When you start a long-term detox, the body will gradually adjust to healthier habits and these habits are more likely to become part of your lifestyle. Since this cleanse is long-term, it may also take longer to see results.

If you’re interested in a long-term detox, we recommend including Detoxify’s Ever Clean 5 Day Cleansing Program. This is a long-term, cleansing program that will help your body’s systems become balanced and help reduce the toxins present.

Short-Term Detox

A short-term detox takes place over one to three days. These detoxes are not as intensive and require a shorter time commitment. When doing a short-term detox, toxins are cleansed from the body and a “system flush” takes place. In order to achieve the best results, we recommend that the detox products you’re using are made with high-quality ingredients.

If you’re interested in a short-term detox, we recommend Detoxify’s Instant Clean Herbal Cleanse, or our Mega Clean Herbal Cleanse.

Short Detox vs. Long Detox — What is the Best Detox?

Overall, what detox you choose should be based on what you want to achieve. Long-term detoxes can encourage you to keep healthy habits in the long run, but are frequently abandoned due to gradual results. Most people look for short-term detoxes for a quick body cleanse, and then follow up with healthy habits such as avoiding toxins as much as possible. Whichever detox you choose, make sure you are drinking a lot of water and making healthy choices for your body.
