A normal healthy person usually has smooth body processes, the vital organs and processes are smooth and work normally – these include digestion, reproduction, sleep, growth etc. On the contrary when the health is compromised the body gives out warning signs to show that it is not healthy. When the toxicity in our body increases, a number of vital processes – as mentioned above are compromised. Toxicity occurs either due to bad food habits, exposure to pollutants and chemicals, bad habits such as smoking or excessive alcohol consumption etc. These toxic habits increase the proportion of oxidants in our body thereby increasing the overall oxidative stress. A toxic body has high oxidative stress which is an underlying cause for a number of serious health conditions – such as cancer, heart disorders, gastric ulcers and so on. It is therefore very important to keep a watch on the body’s toxic level; following are the top 8 signs which denote that the body is toxic and immediately requires detoxification. In other words, we can say that detoxifying would reduce the below-given signs and symptoms.

You would feel tired and lazy all the time, in spite of taking rest.
2. Frequent Muscle Pain/ Cramps

This results in muscle pain in various parts of the body which can also be accompanied with muscle cramps. These cramps are usually healed at rest and become severe due to action.
3. Joint Pain
The muscle joints and the bone joints are worst affected due to toxicity in the body. When the body is toxic there is development of severe joint pain.
