According to traditional Chinese Medicine in Kenya, the liver, the main detoxification organ, works optimally between 1 and 3 am. To favor this function there are several teas and evening drinks that you can take before bedtime to help this important body function, plus, they are excellent for burning fat.
Detoxification of the liver
As we tell you, detox is best produced while we are asleep because at that moment the body reconstructs and regenerates its tissues.
To ensure that conditions are present for effective detoxification to occur, a couple of important things must be taken into account, such as:
Be deeply asleep long before 1 am, which is when the liver starts working.
Have enough blood and body fluids for the detoxification process, so that the body does not overload with harmful substances that tend to be released by detoxifying us.
Proper detoxification helps maintain healthy metabolism, with a lower burden of toxins, and also helps burn faster fat for those who need to control their weight.
