Detox used to be something that people with addictions needed to do. But, now, because our bodies are bombarded with toxins – pollutants from the environment, preservatives and hormones in our food, and breakdown products from prescription drugs that may persist in the body long after the benefit of the medication has passed – now EVERYONE NEEDS TO DETOXIFY!
Every day, your body needs to eliminate toxins, mainly in the urine and stool after being filtered by the kidneys or metabolized by the liver. Detoxification by the liver requires specific nutrients such as glutathione, which in turn requires the amino acids glycine, cysteine, and glutamine, along with vitamin C.
Water plays a key role in detoxification and it is important to drink enough water each day to help the kidneys remove toxic substances from the blood. Various supplements are available to support the body’s natural detoxification process.
Ask our pharmacist what supplements or program is best for you, and how you can stay healthy by supporting your body in eliminating toxins.
