From teas that promise weight loss, to all-day juice diets, there’s no end to methods that promise a cleaner and healthier inside and outside. With so many methods, some are ineffective and others are harmful. But are there any that are effective at eliminating potential toxins from inside of us? But first…
Why does Digestion go wrong and what does Detoxification have to do with it?
Hippocrates was once quoted saying that “all disease begins in the gut”. This remains true today as it did thousands of years ago as more and more findings are showing how the digestive system affects us systemically including our brain health, joint health, skin health and overall inflammation. Our digestive system can be impacted by many factors including:
Gastrointestinal health conditions
Side effects of pharmaceuticals
Other health conditions influencing gut health
Preservatives and additives present in food
Incorrect preparation of food alongside microbes present in food
The constant presence of the above means that our detoxification pathways need to be working at their best all the time. Detoxification specifically means the combined ability of the liver, urinary, digestive, respiratory and integumentary (skin) system to eliminate any harmful compounds that are created within or enter the body.
Although our natural detoxification ability should be able to eliminate enough harmful compounds to keep us healthy, in today’s world there is an excess of exposure from multiple sources that can overwhelm our natural detoxification pathways. These sources include not only the foods we eat but also the chemicals in the products and the environment around us.
Although a range of dietary and lifestyle changes can help support detoxification, the wide range of chemical and toxin overload in our environment can make supplements necessary, especially when digestive conditions such as indigestion, malabsorption, diarrhoea, constipation, food sensitivities and others are also present.
Enterosgel is a silica-based binder that can adsorb a range of harmful chemicals from within the digestive tract and help to eliminate from the body. It can help with:
Preventing or reducing toxic reactions
Relieving symptoms of indigestion
Removing toxins and irritants from the body
Protecting the intestinal wall to promote healing
This inert gel can help support the body’s natural detoxification pathways leading to greater detoxification ability overall. Find out more about Enterosgel here.
