The key to a healthy functioning body lies in many things but it surely includes purification of the blood. Even a slight increase in the toxin levels may affect the overall performance of the organs. Symptoms such as allergies, constant headaches, fatigue and low immunity may be a warning sign of impurities and toxins in the body. Impure blood can result in various health problems, especially the ones that affect the skin such as pimples, acne, dark blemishes, dull and dry skin.


Most people seek help from blood purification syrups and tonics that are available in the market to get rid of such problems. But do these syrups provide satisfactory results and that too without any risk of side effects? Over the counter blood purification syrups are effective to an extent but you can’t overlook the fact that even some of most popular tonics from big brands have faced flak due to presence of high arsenic levels. Arsenic poisoning is extremely dangerous as it can damage the functioning of the liver and other crucial organs. So, instead of these tonics, you should try detox diets as they are harmless and quite effective. Swertia Chirata is an amazing herb that you can use to get a glowing skin.
