Toxins are substances that don’t nourish the body and interfere with optimum health. For example, f ine particles in exhaust, smog, and industry dust can be bad for your heart and lungs.
There are approximately 80,000 synthetic chemicals registered for use in the U.S. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that hundreds of these chemicals are present in our bodies. Research has shown that many of these chemicals can disrupt our immune, endocrine, nervous, and reproductive systems. In 2009, the EPA estimated that 3.42 billion pounds of chemicals were disposed of or released to the environment.
Liver: Filters toxins; aids the body in metabolizing fat, protein, and carbohydrates; helps transform many toxins into harmless agents Kidneys: Filter out waste and excess fluid from the blood; regulate and release the right balance of sodium, phosphorus, and potassium for the body to function properly Small intestine: digests food so that nutrients can be absorbed into the blood and transported to the liver; provides a barrier that blocks toxins from the rest of the body Large intestine: absorbs water and electrolytes, forming waste that is excreted from the body; produces antibodies for GI health; contains bacterium that create fatty acids and some vitamins for additional nutritional support
Phase I enzymes break toxins apart so they can be metabolized – in some cases toxins can’t be removed b/c they can’t be broken down and processed out of the kidneys. Phase I can make toxins more toxic so it’s key to have both phase I and phase II – the p II enzymes repackage the parts of the toxins so they are neutralized and can be taken of the body through urine.
