As much as the words look fancy and complicated their meaning is very very simple.
Detox is nothing but flushing out the various toxins that our body is exposed due to external factors like pollution , outside food , junk food etc. When there is toxin build up in the body our immunity is compromised and we tend to fall sick often . If the toxins are flushed out from the  the system , our immunity will be boosted and we can have a fit and healthy life .
