Detox After The Holidays
Every day, the human body is exposed to endogenous and environmental toxins and toxicants. Common toxins and toxicants include heavy metals (e.g., lead, mercury), chemicals used in agriculture and manufacturing (e.g., pesticides, dioxins), and biotoxins (e.g., bacterial endotoxin). When not eliminated by the body’s natural detoxification system, toxins and toxicants can accumulate in organs and tissues rich in fat such as adipose and brain tissues where they disrupt normal cellular processes, with the potential to cause disease. Supporting detoxification through diet is an essential component of a healthy lifestyle. In fact, an evolving evidence base describes the dependence of the body’s natural metabolic detoxification system on proper nutrition, including specific foods and nutrients. – from WholisticMatters “Metabolic Detoxification”
