Protein Essentials helps maintain phase two detoxification by providing protein, fiber and nutrients to promote normal detoxification function.
- Enhances Liver Detoxification
- Promotes Gastrointestinal Health
- Supports Healthy Estrogen Metabolism
- Increases Antioxidant Protection and Glutathione Production
- Provides Macronutrients, Phytonutrients, and Cofactors that Support Detoxification of Xenobiotics and Xenoestrogens
The human body is exposed to a wide variety of toxins on a daily basis including chemicals found in foods, environmental toxins, and pharmaceuticals. The liver is the body’s main detoxification organ which provides enzyme systems that safely process and remove xenobiotics (foreign chemical substances) out of the body, as well as unhealthy hormone metabolites. These detoxification systems are very complex and require a variety of nutrients for optimal function. There are two main pathways of detoxification in the liver, known as phase one and phase two. In phase one, composed mainly of cytochrome P450 enzymes, non-reactive compounds undergo specific reactions which use oxygen to form a reactive site on the compound. Most pharmaceuticals are metabolized through phase one biotransformation. This prepares the metabolite for the next step of detoxification. Phase two is a crucial step- if molecules from phase one are not fully metabolized by phase two conjugation they may cause free radical damage to proteins, RNA, and DNA within the cell. Phase two reactions result in the biotransformation of fat-soluble compounds into water-soluble compounds that can then be excreted in the bile, stool, or urine. The ingredients included in Protein Essentials were chosen for their ability to support one of the six pathways of phase two detoxification. N-acetyl cysteine along with taurine and glycine are well known amino acids for their role in supporting the liver. Antioxidants such as green tea, lipoic acid, ellagic acid and the vegetable antioxidant blend provide a synergistic approach to liver support and promote enhanced detoxification.
Protein Essentials supports Phase two liver detoxification by providing protein, fiber, and nutrients to help eliminate toxins from the body.
