What Are Toxins?

From the generalized definition, toxins are poisonous substances that usually come from the metabolic activities of small living microorganism that are the result of agricultural effects on the food or maybe sometimes due to the junk and unhygienic food. These toxin substances are very harmful to the body as they get into the tissues and cells and cause various viral and infectious diseases. There are three types of toxins mainly internal toxins and external toxins are the important ones.

How toxins affect your body?

As toxins are harmful living organisms they cause different problematic conditions and diseases.

Internal toxins are the substances that are produced by our body to help  fight external toxins. As our body is continuously burning the dietary fibers and the energy to rebuild and replace dead cells, these toxins can become dangerous and deplete our energy causing damage to the surrounding tissues and organs of the body.

Just like internal toxins, external toxins also affect the body but they originate from outside the body. Your body gets these toxic substances from the intake of food or water. Small micro-organisms accumulate inside the human body and cause viral and fungal infections when they are being ingested by our stomach in the form of a food.
