Let's be honest, we all love a good party. Good drinks, great food, and your besties, what could go wrong? With so much fun involved, it’s amazing how your body can feel so exhausted and miserable after going on a bender? The truth is, drinking too much alcohol in one sitting can negatively affect your body. The same is true for marijuana, vaping, and even fast food. That's why detoxing toxins is so important (especially after a night or weekend of partying!)
The good news is you don't have to give up your fun-loving lifestyle to enjoy improved health and decrease your misery after a party. You just need to learn how to get rid of toxins after the fact, so they don't hang out in your body and have a party of their own (at your expense).
How to Measure Toxicity Levels
If you're the type of person who can "hold your alcohol," you may be underestimating how much your alcohol consumption is impacting your body. If you're curious about the level of toxicity building up inside you, there are ways to test it.
Measuring the toxicity levels in your body shouldn't be done to make you feel guilt over your social lifestyle. Instead, it should be done to help you understand what steps you need to take to get built-up toxins out of your body so you can continue working hard and playing hard.
How to Know if You Need a Detox Cleanse
There are some telltale signs you need a detox to cleanse after a night of partying.1 They include:
- Red eyes
- Dry mouth
- Impaired motor skills
- Decreased sleep quality
- Increased thirst
- Vomiting and/or stomach pain
But for mild to moderate signs of chronic toxicity from regular alcohol consumption, marijuana use, or fast food, detoxifying with products designed for this purpose may help you feel much better. Taking a product such as Green Clean Herbal Cleanse or Mega Clean from Detoxify can help your body get rid of built-up toxins. There are many wellness benefits, including improved energy, enhanced mental focus, and more regular bowel habits.
Timeline of How Body Detoxes Work
Keep in mind there are different timelines associated with each of Detoxify's herbal cleanses — short-term, one day vs. long-term. These purify your body at different levels (including average, high, and maximum toxicity levels).
Generally, the more herbs a cleansing product has, the higher the toxicity levels it cleans. Detoxify provides a variety of options when it comes to how you’ll detox including drink size, sugar levels, flavor, amount of liquid consumed, and capsule options. Here's a brief overview of each cleansing product’s level of cleansing:
- Mighty Clean: Cleanses a maximum level of toxins
- Mega Clean NT: Cleanses a high level of toxins
- Mega Clean: Cleanses a high level of toxins
- XXtra Clean: Cleanses a high level of toxins
- Ready Clean: Cleanses an average level of toxins
- Green Clean: Cleanses an average level of toxins
- Ever Clean: Cleanses an average level of toxins
- Instant Clean: Cleanses an average level of toxins
Carefully study your symptoms to determine your body's level of toxicity when choosing what level of detoxifying product you need to consume for optimum results. If you've only consumed a moderate level of marijuana or alcohol, for example, your body will probably respond well to any of the above products clean on an average level.
But if you've gotten a little "carried away" and know you're in for some unpleasant consequences within the next few hours, you'll probably want to reach for a product that cleanses at a high or maximum level. It's wise to take a cleansing product soon after partying so you can get rid of toxins right away and minimize the symptoms associated with a hangover.

Importance of Detoxify in Getting Rid of Toxins
Your body has some incredible systems designed to get rid of toxins. But with the sheer number of toxic substances you’re exposed to every day, your body's natural systems (including your kidneys and liver) can get overrun and start to function at suboptimal levels. When this happens, detoxing can support your body's optimal performance.
It's important to note these products don't negate your body's natural processes. Instead, they work with your body to get rid of toxins that are causing harm.
Constant exposure to harmful substances can lead to long-term health complications. Diseases and health conditions associated with long-term excessive marijuana and alcohol use include the following:1,2
- High blood pressure
- Digestive problems
- Liver disease
- Certain types of cancer
- Heart disease
- Weakened immune system
- Chronic bronchitis
- Increased risk of chronic psychosis disorders
To reduce your risk of developing these diseases or minimize your symptoms if you already had an epic binger, detoxifying is essential. Take some time to look at the various detoxifying products we offer, then select the best product or combination of products for your needs. Keep in mind some products provide the best results when paired with others.
Carefully follow the instructions included on the product packaging to make sure you're getting maximum benefits from the use of your detoxifying products. For best results, take a Detoxify cleanse the morning after binge drinking to reduce hangover symptoms.
