Toxicity, free radicals and oxidation are caused by exposure to environmental pollution, unhealthy and highly processed food, tap water, exercise, medications, chemicals, artificial ingredients and daily lifestyle stresses. A build-up of tocitiy in the body can advance the aging process, cause health problems and illness.
Although its importance is often overlooked, daily detoxification is an essential component in achieving optimal health. Ingredients in the Daily Detox Blend™ help aid and protect against free radical toxicity by supporting healthy liver function. The liver is considered the body’s “powerhouse” organ for detoxification. Measures taken to support the liver and other vital detoxifying organs will ultimately enhance the body’s ability to eliminate toxins.
Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients found within the Daily Detox Blend™
Milk Thistle Extract (standardized to 80% silymarin) is an herbal extract known to improve the liver’s ability to detoxify harmful toxins and increase its overall function. Silymarin, the active ingredient in milk thistle, consists of four different compounds. Research indicates silymarin can even help reverse severe liver damage.
Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) has several benefits. Known as the “ultimate antioxidant,” ALA has the ability to recycle the body’s use of other antioxidants, including Vitamin C, Vitamin E and the powerful glutathione. Because it is uniquely both water and fat soluble, it can work in more areas of the body. ALA assists the body in eliminating everyday toxins such as mercury. Additionally, cellular energy production, carbohydrate metabolism, and blood sugar balance are dependent on alpha-lipoic acid.
Calcium-d-glucarate is a natural substance that assists in eliminating certain toxic chemicals and excess hormones, such as environmental estrogen from plastics. Calcium d-glucarate helps prevent the body from reabsorbing toxins. This ingredient inhibits an enzyme called beta-glucuronidase (found in certain bacteria in the gut). Higher beta-glucuronidase activity is associated with an increased risk of hormone-dependent cancers such as prostate, breast and colon cancers.
Turmeric Extract (Curcuma longa) (containing 95% curcuminoids), also known as curcumin, is a spice with various advantageous qualities. In addition to being an effective anti-inflammatory herb, turmeric has potent antioxidant and liver protective effects to help counteract daily toxins. Interesting recent studies suggest turmeric may be helpful in minimizing damage from radiation and certain prescription medications.
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is a special form of the amino acid cysteine. NAC promotes healthy lungs and assists the body’s daily battle against car exhaust, cigarette smoke and other environmental pollutants. NAC works by supercharging glutathione, a powerful detoxifier and antioxidant. Glutathione levels decrease with age.
Inulin is found in small amounts in various plant foods, such as the chicory root. Inulin is a type of fiber that helps boost the immune system. It does this by feeding the growth of probiotics (“friendly bacteria”) in the colon that help crowd out bad bacteria, such as E. Coli and Salmonella. The colon’s “friendly bacteria” is necessary for proper digestion by improving gut integrity.
