Sweat Detoxing

Don't Sweat A Sweating Detox

Embody a healthier you by detoxifying your body. Just don't count on a sweating detox to get you there. The purpose of sweat is to cool your body down, not detoxify it.

Sweat is essentially toxin-free [1]:

  • 99% water

  • > 1% protein

  • > 1% carbohydrates

  • > 1% electrolytes/minerals/urera

All of these are natural byproducts of our cells. They're not from the environmental toxins we're trying to eliminate. 

Your body naturally detoxes toxic chemicals by:

  • Filtering toxins in the lungs and breathing them out.

  • Filtering toxins in the intestines and eliminating through poop.

  • Filtering toxins in the liver and kidneys and eliminating them through urine.

Support a natural detox by sending a urine sample to Million Marker. Learn about your personal exposures to BPA, phthalates, parabens, and other toxic chemicals proven to mess up your hormones.


Go On A Sweat Detox Detox

Sure, sweating toxins out of your body isn't plausible. But, you can still support a natural detox. 

In addition to getting tested for personal toxic chemical exposures, you can also support the health of your vital organs:

  • Revitalize your liver with fresh grapefruit juice. Grapefruits contain naringin and naringenin, which in animal studies have shown to reduce fatty growths in the liver [2]. 

  • Nourish your kidneys with low-potassium, high-nutrient foods. Stock up on berries, leafy greens, and root veggies.

  • Find probiotic tenants for your intestines. Consume probiotic-rich foods, such as tofu, miso, or kimchi. Feed your friendly microbes high-quality fiber, like whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.

  • Support lung cells and blood vessels with nitrous foods. Boost your nitric oxide production by eating beets, oysters, and asparagus.


But Still...Get Your Sweat On!

While sweat detoxes are ineffective, sweating is essential for your health. It prevents you from overheating.

Embrace a little sweat. Don't go plugging your pits with excessive antiperspirant. 

Instead, put on a reasonable amount of Million Marker Approved Deodorants and get sweating from:

  • Saunas - Supports healthy blood pressure with a relaxing sauna session [3]

  • Steam rooms- Improves congestion, which could assist your lungs in detoxing your body [4]

  • Exercise - Meet your physical and mental health goals with a little bit of sweat equity. 

  • Eating spicy foods - Raise your thermic temperature to improve digestion [5].
