Detoxification

Cleansing the body from the accumulated “xenobiotics” is known as “detoxification.” Most of these toxins are subjected to numerous chemical changes to be prepared for elimination from the body. The major detoxification reactions take place in the liver. The goal of these reactions is to transform chemicals that are fat soluble into water-soluble compounds. Water soluble compounds can then be eliminated through the kidneys, skin, or gallbladder (in urine, sweat, or bile, respectively). Bile secretion is one of the body’s major detoxification methods. Once the liver has detoxified xenobiotics and other toxins, the resulting compounds are delivered to the gallbladder to be excreted with bile into the digestive system and eliminated in feces. Detoxification has shown to be extremely beneficial to support good health. The removal of these toxins from the system supports the organs’ ability to better absorb nutrients and supports healthy biological functions. This, in turn, supports a healthy healing process.
