Modernization has produced countless advantages to western cultures, but these come at a price: Pollution, radiation and contaminants in our food and water supply cause us to be constantly surrounded by substances and molecules that have a toxic impact on the human body. Our bodies are designed to neutralize the threat of any toxic burdens. The systems that do this are sparked off by specific nutrients that are also necessary for liver detoxification. These nutrients are crucial for proper liver function and effective detoxification. Unfortunately many chemicals as well as cancer treatment drugs impair and inhibit some of these important functions. The end result is defective detoxification and an increase in the toxic burden on our bodies.
Detoxification at Angeles Health
At Angeles Health detoxification starts with your diet and supplement regimen, but there are extra therapies and nutrients that are administered. These are designed to speed up your rate of detoxification, and therefore improve liver function through the regulation of enzyme function.
Key Influential Factors in Detoxification
Glutathione is a tripeptide (very small protein) that plays a vital role in liver detoxification. It acts as a ‘scavenger’ of destructive free radicals and is essential for adequate liver support.
N-acetylcystein is an amino acid that adds to glutathione synthesis and protects the body against liver cell damage.
