How Detoxification Works, How the Right Supplements Can Help

Think About It This Way

This is like taping a magnet to something not inherently magnetic–you allow it to stick, through an intermediary, to other magnets. The result is a toxin which is now water-soluble and almost ready to be excreted.

Phase II takes the now polar toxins and conjugates them to specific amino acids. Conjugate in this context means combine, and it is like taking that now-magnetized toxin and sticking it to something which will be excreted–in one case, a tripeptide (three linked amino acids) like glutathione.

Glutathione and other important amino acids, such as taurine and cysteine, are like trucks leaving the city. Your body throws the magnetized toxins towards the truck, which catches them on its sheet-metal side and takes them out of your body, either through urine, sweat, or bile. By any route they leave, they’re gone.

It’s extremely important to really boost phase II detoxification because when phase I converts the toxins to polar substances, they become much more reactive, and they can damage DNA, proteins, and many other important parts of our body. Thankfully, many phytochemical compounds from plants are multi-functional inducers, elevating not only the levels of phase I enzymes, but the levels of enzymes involved in phase II as well.

This is where the the Detox Nutrient Packs from Thorne come in. It contains three supplements, all of which are contain clinically-tested ingredients which improve detoxification across all phases.
