The Goal: Remove toxins from the body caused by air pollution, chemicals, poor diet, cosmetic absorption, alcohol and smoking.
The Plan: 30-minute session. Recommendation: 2 times per week for one month.
The Goods: Vitamin C, Glutathione, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, and Selenium.
The Deal: The liver is the main purifying organ of the body as it removes toxic substances from the blood. If these harmful substances are not removed, they accumulate leading to various health problems. Vitamin C is essential for detoxification, particularly in the liver, as it neutralizes the free radicals that cause cellular damage. Glutathione, attaches to toxic substances, like heavy metals, to neutralize them until they are eliminated. Zinc plays a vital role in the digestion of food, the removal of toxins, poisons and other harmful substances from the body. Copper acts as an antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory properties which help to counteract the damaging of effects of free radicals. Manganese supports superoxide dismutase (SOD) antioxidant, reducing cellular damage. Chromium supports the liver by reducing the accumulation of harmful fats and making it easier to break down and digest foods. Selenium has a very strong binding affinity with mercury, which allows it to mix and neutralize mercury so that it is not absorbed by the body and gets flushed out of the system.
