13 Signs That You're Over-Toxed (and Need to Detox!)

Spore Probiotics Hold the Key to Successful Detox

Feeling sluggish or gassy? Experiencing annoying breakouts or bad breath? Your body is sending you a clear message: YOU'RE OVER-TOXED.

And no matter how well you eat, how much you exercise, or how healthy your lifestyle is, you’re exposed to toxins every single day through the foods you eat (yes, even some healthy foods!), the water you drink and bathe in, and the air you breathe. 

In fact, a recent publication summarized it best: "There is no question that the world is becoming increasingly toxic, with worldwide dissemination of industrial chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals and radioactive elements. Many of these toxins have demonstrated harmful effects including cancer, reproductive, metabolic, and mental health effects. It is also known that many toxins undergo bioaccumulation through the food chain and that synergistic effects can occur whereby combinations of toxins can be more potent than the sum of individual toxins."

Those unavoidable everyday toxins include:

  • Food additives
  • Pesticides
  • Weed killers (herbicides)
  • Heavy metals
  • BPA (bisphenol A) plastics
  • Chlorine
  • Fluoride… and so much more

While you can’t avoid exposure completely, you can help your body fight back – and probiotics are what your body needs to detox successfully.



If you’re dealing with these symptoms, it’s time to detox

Your body knows how to detox itself – and it’s really good at that under the right conditions. But when your microbiome (the trillions of bacteria that live in your gut) is out of balance, your body just can’t clear out toxins as well or fully.

When that happens, you’ll start getting “messages” in the form of symptoms that may not make any sense. So if you’re experiencing at least one of these thirteen symptoms, your body may be over-toxed.

  1. Feeling tired and sluggish all the time
  2. Having trouble focusing and remembering
  3. Unexplained weight gain/trouble losing weight
  4. New or worse food sensitivities
  5. Feeling sad or irritable
  6. Bad breath
  7. Gas and bloating
  8. Constipation or diarrhea (or both)
  9. Indigestion
  10. Trouble sleeping
  11. Skin problems (like breakouts or itchiness)
  12. Increased body odor
  13. Dark under eye circles/puffy eyes

Any one of those could be a cry for help from an over-toxed body that needs some detox support. The trick is to give your body the right support… not a harsh cleanse or enema regimen.

Skip the juice fasts and coffee enemas

Detoxing has turned into big business, with a vast variety of supplements, special juices, bars, and smoothies for you to buy. They’re touted as near-magical formulas to improve your health, help you lose weight, and boost digestion… often without any (or very limited) scientific proof to back up those claims. 

It doesn’t take three days of drinking apple cider vinegar… water laced with cayenne pepper… juice fasts… coffee enemas… or other extreme cleanses to help your body detox. (check out this video from microbiologist Kiran Krishnan on detoxes, hydrocleanses, enemas and more)

The best thing you can do for your body is to support its own natural built-in detox systems and pathways. And the best way to do that is with a healthy microbiome – one where the good bacteria (probiotics) vastly outnumber the bad. 

When you arm your gut with high quality spore probiotics, you’re supplying exactly what it needs to battle everyday toxins so you can feel your best. 



5 Ways Probiotics Help You Detox

When probiotics are in charge of your microbiome, they help keep you in optimal health. Some of the key ways they do that is by helping your body get rid of toxins before they can cause any problems.

To reduce your toxin load, probiotics:

  • crowd out hostile microbes (like bad bacteria and yeasts) so they can’t grow and multiply;
  • bind to heavy metals so they can be safely flushed out;
  • reduce pesticide absorption;
  • decrease absorption and increase excretion of BPA;
  • restore intestinal integrity to keep pathogens from escaping into your bloodstream. 

That’s just the start of what a high-quality probiotic can do for you… but it takes a special blend of spore probiotics called Just Thrive to deliver a truly successful detox.
