Detoxing can do more than make your eyes sparkle and your skin glow – it can boost energy levels, improve digestion and help lose a few kilos.

The purpose of any detox plan is to take the load off the organs that detoxify the body – the liver, kidneys and bowel – while at the same time supporting and improving their performance.
