While it’s true that you are perfectly capable of removing toxins naturally, most people aren’t doing it effectively, and certainly not optimally. We are overburdened with external toxins but not nourished with the right nutrients to support optimal detoxification on a daily basis. This double whammy can overwhelm the system making it challenging for it to do the things you want it to do, like shedding weight and generating energy levels!
