Why Might This Product Be Important For My Family?
There is mounting scientific data emerging‚ linking many disease states to negative environmental elements present in our world. Negative environmental factors have been implicated in developmental disorders‚ gastrointestinal conditions‚ diseases of the immune system and a myriad of other medical irregularities.
Included in the list of environmental insults that can affect disease states are toxic chemicals‚ toxins such as heavy metals‚ PCBs and pesticides present in the products we use and contaminants in the air we breathe and the water we utilize and drink.
These environmental pollutants can affect the body in numerous ways. Natural body defense mechanisms such as immune response can be bombarded with the insults‚ thereby becoming less effective because of the toxic load. Biochemical pathways may be altered leading to abnormal body responses.
When the body encounters these environmental toxins‚ a detoxification process must occur to prevent a toxic overload. In developmental disorders‚ the detoxification pathways are often compromised requiring the system to obtain a “boost” from the outside. Kirkman’s Detox-Aid Advanced Formula provides that “boost” to help the body detoxify properly. Our new and improved formulation contains alpha ketoglutaric acid as a replacement for n-acetyl cysteine (NAC). Recent scientific information suggests that NAC may have side effects in a subset of individuals. Alpha ketoglutaric acid accomplishes the same functions as NAC‚ but without the side effects.
How Does Detox-Aid Advanced Formula Work?
The ingredients in Detox-Aid Advanced Formula and how they work to help the detoxification process are described below:
As toxins become active in the body‚ glucuronic acid combines with the toxins to form a non-toxic molecule called a glucuronide that can be excreted into bile‚ thereby eliminating the toxin. An enzyme called beta-glucuronidase present in the body‚ largely as a by product of intestinal flora‚ can disassemble that non-toxic molecule‚ which frees up the activated toxin again. Calcium D-Glucarate acts to prevent that disassembly process of the glucuronide by becoming D-glucaro-1‚4-lactone‚ the direct inhibitor of the beta-glucuronidase. Without this inhibition process‚ the cleaving of the glucuronide would lead to the toxin being reabsorberd by the intestinal mucosa.
Turmeric is a powerful anti-oxidant that increases the formation of the detoxifying glucuronides. Turmeric’s anti-oxidant properties also aid glutathione in doing its job.
Reduced L-Glutathione is required by body cells in order to detoxify.
Alpha ketoglutaric acid is present because it has to ability to bind with toxins in the body and helps escort them out of cell through the excretory processes.
Taurine is an essential component of bile formation. Bile flow into the intestinal tract is a major detoxification route in the body‚ along with sweat‚ urine‚ breath‚ hair and nails.
Milk Thistle contains silymarin‚ which is a very powerful anti-oxidant that prevents free radical damage to cells. It also reduces liver toxicity by blocking cell binding sites of toxins‚ thereby slowing or stopping the cellular uptake of those toxins. In human and animal studies‚ silymarin is protective against the toxic effects of alcohol‚ carbon tetrachloride‚ mushrooms‚ and many other chemicals and pesticides.
Olive Leaf Extract is present in Detox-Aid Advanced Formula to limit or eliminate the growth of undesirable intestinal flora‚ harmful bacteria‚ fungi and yeasts‚ which tend to thrive in the presence of sulfur compounds such as glutathione‚ and n-acetyl cysteine.
Selenium is present due to the fact that it is an antagonist to ingested metals including lead‚ mercury‚ aluminum and cadmium.
Other Important Considerations
Detox-Aid Advanced formula assists in the body’s natural removal of ingested heavy metals and works synergistically with detoxifying compounds such as DMSA‚ EDTA‚ Chemet‚ and DMPS.
You may be in the beginning stages of trying to eliminate toxins that are present in our environment. We should all be doing that. Some will remain‚ however‚ as we still have to eat‚ breathe and drink to sustain our lives. Kirkman’s Detox-Aid Advanced Formula can help to enhance our bodies’ detoxification processes‚ thereby maximizing the elimination of chemicals‚ pesticides‚ smoke‚ metals‚ allergens and food impurities.
