Eliminate Toxins with Enzymes

Every day, our bodies create and are exposed to toxic chemicals through metabolism, food, air and water. These compounds include metabolic waste, bacteria, pollutants, pesticides and sometimes drugs and alcohol.

Your liver is your largest internal organ. It's the most important organ involved in detoxification. Overexposure to toxins can exceed your body's capacity to remove them.

Ultimately, toxin levels increase in the body, producing a variety of symptoms like headaches, muscle and joint pain, fatigue and allergies. Over a period of time, this can contribute to inflammatory and neurological disease.

Liver detoxification involves enzymatic systems, which are divided into two general phases: Phase 1 and Phase 2 enzymes. These enzymes can be referred to as proteins with a job. 

Sometimes, though, they need nutrients or cofactors to kick start their performance.

Phase 1 enzymes need folic acid, beta carotene, B vitamins and vitamin C in order to function properly. These nutrients are readily available in BarleyLife, Just Carrots, Peak Endurance, and CalciAIM.

Once Phase 1 enzymes are activated with these nutrients, in turn they will oxidize, reduce or hydrolyze toxins and prepare them for Phase 2.

Now the amino acids cystine, glutamine and glycine, all of which are found in ProPeas, are needed to activate the Phase 2 enzymes. 

Well guess what….

Phase 2 enzymes cannot become activated without the combination of sulforaphane. There are a few other compounds that can accomplish this activation, but they are not nearly as efficient or long lasting as sulphoraphane. Activated Phase 2 enzymes have the ability to convert toxins into water soluble compounds, which can now be eliminated from the body.

Sulforaphane is the active compound from the broccoli sprouts in LeafGreens. It helps remove toxins, pollutants and pesticides, which have the potential to be carcinogens.

In addition, it also has the ability to scavenge free radicals that can initiate or lead to the spread of many cancers including breast, lung, colon, bladder, stomach and prostate.
