Liver Detox: Get Rid of Toxins

The toxic waste from cells heads through your lymph and towards two major thoracic ducts, which dump back into major veins that go to your liver for final toxin processing. If you inhale or ingest something toxic then the toxins enter your circulation and head directly to your liver. When your liver does a good job it is keeping your blood clean of trash, absolutely vital to your survival.

If your liver cannot do its job well or has been inundated with too much work (toxic exposure, illness, etc), then toxic levels rise in your blood and this is considered a significant stress by your body as these toxins can irritate vital organs like your heart, brain, and kidneys as they remain in the circulation too long. This problem can make your lymph get congested because your blood simply cannot tolerate any more toxins coming into it that your liver can not get rid of.

Some people with sinus or digestive issues are constantly overworking their liver from toxic byproducts of imbalanced bacteria and Candida. It is like they have their own internal brewery. Obvious problems include too much alcohol, smoking, street drugs, and the number of prescription medications a person is on.

Typical liver-related toxic stress includes headaches (mostly on temples or sides of head), dry skin, nausea (especially in the morning), a poisoned or irritable feeling, dark circles or bags under the eyes, fluid retention under the skin (puffy or pitting skin), and skin problems anywhere. Note: lymph skin problems are mostly from the shoulders up due to where pressure forces them, whereas the livers inability to clear toxins can cause skin problems anywhere on the body.

If you get sick and after a few days you feel like you have been run over by a Mack truck then you know full well what an acute and intense toxic overload feels like. Many people struggle with much smaller versions of these toxic feelings on a daily basis. People with fibromyalgia actually feel sick without being sick when they try to do too much for their level of fitness and end up feeling too toxic.

One response of your liver to toxic overload is to get the toxins as far away from your heart as possible, which means leave them in your toes (painful). Another solution is to stuff them into fat (discussed later). If you wake up in the morning and all your joints feel sore then it is often because toxins have settled in them during the night. As you get up and move around your body mechanically pumps them out of the joints. When your liver works better any of the above issues improve.

Your liver uses a variety of enzymes to neutralize many toxins, often referred to as Phase 1 and Phase 2 detoxification pathways. Phase 1 relies on the family of cytochrome P450 enzymes. It requires antioxidants to work properly, as each toxin processed requires an antioxidant for proper neutralization. The most important liver antioxidant for Phase 1 function is glutathione peroxidase (GSH). P450 enzymes either deactivate a toxin directly or modify it so that other enzymes in the Phase 2 system can get rid of it. In Phase 2 small molecules are added to the toxin to help excrete it through the bile or urine, a process known as conjugation. This system requires energy (ATP) and a supply of the molecules to attach to the toxins in order to work properly.*

I designed Daily Balancer™ to not only protect your liver but to support both Phase 1 and Phase 2 detoxification chores of your liver. It is by far our most popular product for liver health*

Daily Balancer™ Daily Balancer™

Daily Balancer™ helps your liver clear toxins from your circulation and lymph system. It is designed to protect your liver as well as assist with both Phase1 and Phase 2 detoxification chores. It is formulated to bind metal toxins, including mercury, and assist their removal. The skin under your eyes is very thin, readily showing blood quality and minor vascular swelling from trash irritants. Dark circles or bags under your eyes tend to indicate your liver could use some help, as does any sensitivity to chemicals.*

Pantethine Pantethine

Pantethine is the co-enzyme form of vitamin B5, which helps make the enzyme aldehyde dehydrogenase that clears many aldehyde-based chemicals common in today's pollution (formaldehyde, acetaldehyde). Acetaldehyde is the breakdown product of alcohol as well as the toxin produced by Candida. Pantethine is especially good at clearing brain fog. Because pantethine also provides your liver energy (Acetyl CoA), including energy to help metabolize stuck fatty sludge out of your liver, it can help detoxification and liver function in multiple ways (including Phase 2 acetylation) and works well with Daily Balancer™ for any person wanting more comprehensive liver support - especially during weight loss efforts.*

Chlorella Chlorella

Chlorella, a single-cell algae, is an ideal liver and digestive support detoxification nutrient. Its cell wall easily absorbs toxic metals like mercury, cadmium, and lead. It helps your liver enhance the rate of bile formation, which is the primary method your liver uses to eliminate all fat soluble toxins. Many nutrients within chlorella support antioxidant function, which is critical to many aspects of toxin clearance. Doses ranging from 1500 mg up to 6000 mg (3-12 capsules per day) can be used to enhance detoxification function.*
