Every day of our lives we are exposed to various substances and chemicals that can accumulate in our bodies. Whether it is through food packaging or the toxins present in some kitchen utensils or other products. While it is true that our own body has its own systems for eliminating these toxins, there are certain ways in which we can contribute to this elimination. But before doing so, we must first identify whether our body has been exposed to too many toxins and thus is overloaded.
How do you know if you have an excess of toxins in your body? There are some clear indicators, and here we tell you about them!
Warning signs your body is suffering from toxin overload
Fatigue, lack of energy and body ache
One of the main signs of toxins buildup is a lack of energy, as the organs stop functioning perfectly and this increases the feeling of fatigue. In addition, since it also adds to the body’s inflammation burden, it is very common to have aches and pains for no apparent reason.
The feeling of heaviness also invades our stomach when we are overloaded with toxins. Gas, slow digestion, intestinal discomfort… Sometimes it can even lead to nausea, constipation or diarrhoea.
Sudden changes in the skin
Generally, dry skin is a clear sign of toxins overload in the body, but it can also cause rashes, acne or a loss of radiance, becoming duller or flaccid. In fact, sudden changes in the skin are a symptom of many other conditions, so it is important to pay attention to it. They say that the eyes are the reflection of the soul, but the skin is the reflection of our organism, so take a good look at yourself.
The accumulation of toxins significantly affects the metabolism, reducing the ability to burn fat. If you haven’t changed your diet or exercise routine and have still noticed weight gain, it could be due to an overload of toxins in the body.
Both the smell and the colour of the urine changes, becoming denser and more intense. In addition, the overload of toxins increases fluid retention, so it will also be common to feel bloated as a result.
