The unscientific word “detox” somehow made a place for itself in the world of natural health. Prior to even understanding how, or why to detox, it is important to reveal what a toxin is. Toxins are chemical components that enter the body and have a detrimental effect on natural physiological function. Usually, that effect is observed due to their chemical characteristics. For example, highly electronegative ions have the tendency to “steal” electrons from anyone they can steal electrons from. The action of snatching an electron can have a detrimental effect on cellular function. Free radicals are also another physiological disrupter that can easily break down membranes and render compounds “changed” enough to have a toxic, rather than a positive effect on physiology. Such changes are observed with the process of frying, as the oxidation of plant oils can turn them from a healthy nutritious natural ingredient to a toxic soup of oxidizing chemicals.
Detoxing has its own risks as it frees the toxic compounds in the blood and may amplify their toxicity as their effects combine. Additionally, proper detox must support organs that may be overburdened with the detox process. As nature is infinitely wise, the detox process is a built-in natural component of health that is, unfortunately, disrupted with the current state of soil depletion.
Natural, healthy soil contains healthy levels of Humic Acids, including the smallest of the family, fulvic acid. This family of unique ingredients is a byproduct of the natural symbiosis between plants and microorganisms. As trees give carbohydrate-rich compounds to the soil, microorganisms utilize the carbohydrates and concentrate humic acids to facilitate the absorption of healthy minerals from previously decayed plant matter. That beautiful, harmonious partnership results in cleaner, more nutritious plants.
While using the natural Humic Acids as carriers to take out toxic metabolites and replace them with healthy minerals is great, it is always important to look out for the organs and provide them with proper anti-oxidant levels so that they can deal with the burden of detox. N-acetyl cysteine (Link Article) maintains healthy glutathione levels to facilitate detox on a cellular level and maintain optimal physiological function through the process of detox.
