The integrity of your personal detoxification system is absolutely what makes the difference in how you will respond to chemicals in your environment. Your body is dependent on the strength of your detoxification system to keep chemicals and toxins from interfering with the health of your body.
The detoxification process is divided into two phases. In phase 1, electrons are moved around on the chemical to prepare a space for a detoxifier to latch on to it and carry the toxin out. Phase 2 involves the detoxifying nutrient, latching on to the toxin in the spot that was prepared in phase 1. The heavy detoxifier is usually a molecule that the body makes on its own. When the detoxifier is attached to the chemical it makes the chemical heavy and therefore the chemical is than able to be flushed out of the system.
Enzymes work in phase 1 to prepare the chemical site for detoxification. These enzymes require minerals to make them work. Without healthy levels of these minerals, it is virtually impossible to completely detoxify.
In phase two there are various detoxifying nutrients that can attach to the toxic chemical and drag it out of the body. The detoxifier that is the most available available is the one the body will use. Glutathione is one very powerful detoxifier that the body uses to cleanse toxins from the system.
What happens is though that each time your body uses a glutathione molecule to grab hold and flush a toxic chemical out of the body, you have lost this detoxifier forever. Detoxifying molecules are used up to keep the body clean and safe from chemicals, and although if they are not replaced, they can be used up entirely, causing the entire natural detoxification system to falter.
This simple Detox Cocktail can rev up both detoxificationases and keep you safe on a daily basis.
· A heaping teaspoon of vitamin C powder
· 300-600 mg of Lipoic Acid
· 400-800 mg of glutaghione
Take this with 1-2 large glasses of water. Vitamin C and Lipoic acid assist in the first phase of detoxification, while glutathione is an excellent detoxifier that pulls the toxin out of the system.
Additional vitamins and minerals needed to accomplish the first phase of detoxification are zinc, copper, manganese, and magnesium. This is why a multivitamin is always a good idea to use for keeping your natural detoxification system in order.
