Some experts are still dubious about the benefits of detoxification diets which are becoming increasingly popular. They believe that the body is already capable of dealing with the toxins taken into the body. They warn consumers that detoxification diets can have risks such as diarrhea, dehydration and depletion of essential salts. Some cleansers that utilize liquorice can cause a lower potassium level, muscle weakness and fatigue. Experts warn that detox shouldn't be used as an excuse to engage in poor diet habits during the rest of the time. If a sensible diet and exercise program is followed then detox shouldn't be necessary.
