What contributes to toxin buildup?
We are exposed to toxins every day. In fact, our bodies produce waste toxins known as endogenous toxins simply by functioning. Our bodies also encounter external (exogenous) toxins, or chemicals made outside the body. Exposure to these toxins can overburden a system’s natural ability to detoxify.
Why do we need Metabolic Detoxification?
Toxins can contribute to: fatigue or difficulty sleeping, indigestion and other temporary gastrointestinal upset, food cravings and weight gain, reduced mental clarity, low libido, skin issues and joint discomfort.
What is Metabolic Detoxification?
It’s a series of natural biochemical processes responsible for clearing toxins from our bodies. In the three-phase process, the body unlocks fat-soluble toxins and converts them to a water-soluble state that is easier for our bodies to remove. We need key nutrients and phytonutrients to support each of these phases.
How Do the Three Phases of Metabolic Detoxification Work?
Phase I: Unlock
The body transforms fat-soluble toxins to an “unlocked” state that is more water-soluble, and in many cases, more toxic than its original form.
Phase II: Neutralize
The highly toxic substances produced in Phase I convert to non-toxic molecules and become even more water-soluble.
Phase III: Eliminate
Water-soluble toxins leave cells, and the body eliminates them.
Plant-based fiber are needed to aid in toxin elimination.
