Detox diets, as we already know, aim to help the body to release toxins as well as protect itself from the action of free radicals which, in short, accelerate premature aging.

In this way, many cleansing eating routines have a second phase in which they introduce a greater amount of antioxidant foods with the aim of protecting the body from unusual deterioration at the cellular level. This does not mean that these regimens -or any others- slow down the aging process -something inherent to human existence itself- but, rather, that they can help us to have a better quality of life.
