The exposure and accumulation of toxins have been shown to play a major role in many chronic diseases including obesity, diabetes (type 2) and cardiovascular disease. With the expected rates of these three chronic diseases to increase, research has focused on food, nutrients and their influences on these conditions.
For detoxification, our body requires large amounts of energy and key nutrients. This because we have to move, transform and eliminate toxicants from our body.
Successful detoxification and cleansing programs including adopting positive lifestyle factors while avoiding environmental toxins, optimal gut health, removal of toxicants (fat loss, sauna, exercise), quality sleep, stress reduction, nutrition and hydration.
The foods we eat need to provide us with nutrients to optimise detoxification and help nourish the organs that are essential to perform these tasks.
If our toxin exposure is high or whole food choices are low then the addition of supplements is essential. These can include probiotics, vitamins and minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, herbs and roots and specific nutrients including N-acetylcysteine and glutathione, which have all been reported to aid our ability to detoxify
At Bigvits we understand the importance of maximising our ability to remove harmful toxins and have sourced key evidenced-based nutrients to support this process.
