BASIC DETOX NUTRIENTS
a comprehensive multiple vitamin-mineral with additional nutrients to aid in detoxification
B vitamins: Thiamine (vitamin B1) is essential to restore the body's antioxidant defense - glutathione and lipoic acid. Thiamine is depleted by chlorinated pesticides and formaldehyde, two ubiquitous toxins. Riboflavin 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B2) helps block free-radical damage by recycling glutathione. Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B6) is depleted by many toxic substances, and a vitamin B6 deficiency makes it difficult for the liver to detoxify.
Other important detox nutrients: Magnesium citrate-malate is a well-absorbed form of magnesium, one of the most commonly deficient nutrients in the chemically toxic individual. Choline is needed for the production of liver detoxification enzymes, N-acetylcysteine increases glutathione levels in the body, MSM provides sulfur for detoxification reactions, and R-lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that increases glutathione levels.
Botanical extracts: Green tea extract has potent antioxidant activity. Milk thistle has proven ability to increase liver glutathione levels and resist liver cell damage from toxins. Curcumin extract (from turmeric) protects the liver and has been shown to suppress several common chemical toxins. Green tea, milk thistle, and curcumin are all provided bound to phosphatidylcholine as phytosomes, Greenselect, Siliphos, and Meriva, respectively. This significantly increases the absorption and bioavailability of these flavonoids. Both broccoli extract and dandelion root also enhance detoxification by the liver.
