Detox-Pro™

We’re exposed to toxins like pesticides, heavy metals, drugs and hormones from our environment and in our food every single day. All the cells in our body can be affected by some level of toxicity, leading to fatigue, irregular elimination, irritated skin, allergies or low-grade infections. Toxins are also typically fat soluble and are often stored in our fat cells where they can sometimes remain for years. If we do nothing to remove them, they can contribute to more diseases.

So how do we protect ourselves from this constant toxic bombardment? The answer lies with our liver. Blood detoxification is one of our most important liver functions - especially if it’s healthy and has an array of optimal nutritional tools with which to do its vital work.

Detoxification happens in two phases. In Phase I, the liver converts toxic chemicals into less toxic ones, sometimes creating dangerous free radical by-products. Fortunately, antioxidants like vitamins C, E and natural carotenoids can quickly counteract them. In Phase II, liver cells chemically alter the toxic by-products of Phase I, making them water soluble and easy to excrete.

Detox-Pro™ contains a blend of medicinal herbs and it is a one-step, 15-day detoxification solution that provides critical nutrients to help support your liver function and optimize detoxification pathways.
