Tylers Detoxification Factors
Many common health problems may be traced back to impaired digestive function and exposure to toxins. Unfortunately, impaired digestive function and exposure to toxins may not cause symptoms right away, and so they often go undetected. Over time, however, damage can accumulate and produce serious health consequences.
For most people, food is the main source of exposure to toxins. Over 3,000 chemicals are used by the food industry during processing, and an additional 12,000 chemicals are used in food packaging materials. Pesticide residues are found in the vast majority of food samples. In addition to these external sources of toxins, we produce toxins within our own bodies (endotoxins *1) through the processes of digestion, elimination, fighting infections, and dealing with stress.
The liver is the main organ responsible for detoxification in the body. Toxic compounds are altered by the liver so they can be safely eliminated. The liver uses a variety of nutrients and "cofactors" to carry out the processes of detoxification. By supplying the liver with adequate amounts of these nutrients and cofactors, we can support its overall ability to detoxify our bodies, and thus prevent illnesses associated with toxic accumulation.
Our diet and lifestyle choices play an important role in either causing or preventing many health problems. A great number of foreign chemicals, or xenobiotics, are capable of causing illness and disease, either by direct toxicity or via toxic intermediates formed during the detoxification process. Adverse health effects of environmental toxins can range from acute toxicity and tissue damage to chronic immune dysfunction, neurological disturbances, chronic degenerative disease, environmentally induced illness, chronic fatigue, dizziness, confusion, depression, allergies, and cancer.
Since most xenobiotics *2 are fat-soluble, they are readily absorbed but poorly excreted. As a result, they tend to accumulate, especially in fatty tissue. To enable excretion, fat-soluble (lipophilic) chemicals are converted to water-soluble substances through enzymatic conversion, referred to as Phase I and Phase II detoxication pathways, which occur primarily in the liver.
Detoxication Factors supplies specific nutrients required for the biotransformation and excretion of environmental toxins and chemicals. Research indicates that dietary factors play an important role in the body's ability to detoxify. Detoxication Factors provides nutritional precursors and cofactors essential to Phase I and Phase II detoxication reactions in the liver, and provides a broad range of nutrients including antioxidants such as reduced glutathione, vitamins C and E, conjugating agents such as calcium D-glucarate and L-ornithine, L-aspartate, and cofactors including pyridoxal-5-phosphate, riboflavin-5-phosphate, zinc, and magnesium.
