This unique dietary supplement blends green food concentrates and enzymes that work together to simultaneously enhance the body’s natural detoxification processes which take place in the gastrointestinal tract and the liver. Detoxification is an important part of the body’s natural defense process. Exposure to toxins such as heavy metals and other environmental pollutants, ingested chemicals including alcohol and prescription drugs, infectious agents, and metabolic by-products occurs throughout an individual’s lifespan. The gastrointestinal tract is the first point of contact for the majority of toxins and has the overwhelming task of selectively absorbing substances beneficial to health, while barring entry to pathogenic organisms and toxic agents. The liver is also an essential component of the body’s detoxification efforts as it is equipped with an array of detoxification pathways capable of converting harmful chemicals into less reactive compounds that are easier to excrete. Support for healthy gastrointestinal and liver detoxification processes is therefore a vital component of minimizing the impact toxic substances have on our well-being.
This product can help enhance both intestinal and liver detoxification processes by providing:
Chlorella is an algal organism that contains high concentrations of nutrients and the green plant pigment chlorophyll. Research indicates the chlorophyll component of Chlorella has valuable detoxifying effects as it has been shown to form tight complexes with a wide variety of toxins, thus reducing their potential of absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. Chlorophyll may also provide additional protective benefit through its potent antioxidant activity against free radical damage. Most Chlorella organisms have thick cell walls that cannot be adequately broken down in the digestive tract. This product addresses this limitation by providing a special thin-cell wall type of Chlorella to help improve digestibility. Instead of breaking the cell wall as is done for some Chlorella supplements, using thin-cell wall Chlorella preserves the nutritional integrity without risk of oxidation and loss of activity of the contents. This product also includes enzymes that help break down Chlorella cell walls to further enhance digestibility and bioavailability of chlorophyll.
Broccoli Extract: Broccoli contains several natural phytochemical compounds (known as isothiocyanates) well recognized to support detoxification primarily by supporting liver function. Research shows that isothiocyanates exert protective effects by favorably modulating detoxification pathways in the liver. In addition, isothiocyanates also exert antioxidant activity as well as assist in the regulation of inflammatory pathways. For maximum benefit, this product provides a unique concentrated broccoli extract high in isothiocyanates and isothiocyanate precursors.
Enzyme Blend: A high-potency enzyme blend is also included to promote healthy gastrointestinal function and further aid detoxification. Proteolytic (protein-degrading) and carbohydrase (carbohydrate-specific) enzymes are provided to facilitate more complete digestion of potentially irritating food components that may otherwise cause tissue irritation, inflammation, and allergic responses. This product also provides enzymes that target and break down specific components of yeast cell walls, thus helping to reduce activity of fungal organisms like Candida albicans.
