Many of us are exposed to toxins and stress on a daily basis. Harsh pollutants and pesticides are not the only dangers. Household items and personal care products also contain toxins. Not to mention some of the foods we eat on a daily basis and the stress in our lives that may cause some elimination issues. Our bodies are also naturally producing toxic byproducts at the cellular level on a daily basis. If toxins build up over time they can cause health imbalances.
Fortunately for us our bodies use a combination of organs to cleanse toxins from our system. However, due to the amount of toxins our bodies are exposed to on a daily basis our organs can be overwhelmed.
Some people may need additional support to help the body’s natural detoxification process. A healthy lifestyle along with a cleansing program is a step in the right direction towards a balanced system.
Many researchers believe that the accumulation of toxins may be at the root of disease.
One of the Reasons WHY we came out with this Product
When people feel better physically, they often feel better emotionally and are able to handle daily emotional stress more effectively. Being able to handle stress more effectively may also help the body physically which may help the body deal with emotional stress in return. The link between physical and emotional harmony is becoming better understood with more research but is often over looked. Both physical and emotional health need to be addressed when trying to overcome a health imbalance. A popular example of this that many people have heard of is the correlation between stress and stomach ulcers and other digestive imbalances. Eliminating toxins out of the body and relieving stress off of the body’s organs may help the body deal with daily stress in a more effective manner which in turn reinforces the body’s ability to eliminate toxins.
How does your body Detox?
There are many filters in the body. The body has channels of elimination such as the liver, kidneys, skin, colon and more that all work together in the detoxification process.
Liver: converts destructive toxins into less harmful substances that the colon and kidneys can eliminate.
Colon: disposes waste from the digestive system and the liver.
Kidneys: remove waste products from the blood and eliminate it as urine.
Blood & Lymphatic System: transport toxins to organs for proper elimination
Skin: secretes toxins and waste products.
Whole Herb Powders & Standardized Extracts
With so many choices on the market these days it is easy to get confused on what product is right for you. There is one important piece of information you must know when deciding. You should know the difference between whole herb powders and standardized extracts.
A whole herb is just what it says: the whole herb plant is usually dried and powdered leaves, stems, and/or roots. The strength of whole herbs can vary depending on many factors such as the time of year harvested, soil conditions, plant age, weather conditions and so on.
A standardized herbal extract is an herb extract that has a guaranteed amount of active ingredient. The “active ingredient” is the chemical or constituent of the plant believed to have medicinal properties. Scientists have been able to identify the active ingredients and extract them to produce concentrated herbal extracts know as standardized extracts. Standardized herbal extracts have been used for decades to ensure quality and strength.
The reason standardized extracts have been produced is to guarantee the chemistry behind the product from batch to batch and year to year. Standardized extracts inform the consumer about the potency of the ingredient. There is no guessing about the quality of the product when using standardized extracts.
The Daily Detox contains only standardized extracts with specific active ingredients that are targeted toward specific organ systems. The Daily Detox contains Dandelion Extract (Std. 20% Taraxasterols). The Dandelion Extract is standardized to contain 20% Taraxasterols from the root. The active ingredient believed to have medicinal properties in Dandelion Extract is taraxasterols. Many nutritional products contain dandelion powder instead of a standardized extract. There is no way of knowing the percentage of active ingredient in the dandelion powder. It could contain less than 1% or more than 5% taraxasterols. This is one of the reasons why standardized extracts have more value. It is important to know what you are paying for and consuming.
Read Here to Understand How Enzymes are Measured
Herbs are measured in milligrams and enzyme strength is measured in units of activity. The enzymes listed in our formulations are listed in units of activity. The potency of an enzyme product is determined by the units of activity. The units of activity express the strength of the enzymes in the formulation. Another way to say this is that the more units of activity in a formulation, the more it is capable of breaking down. Units of activity are based on the Food Chemical Codex (FCC), Academy of Sciences and accepted by the American Food Industry. For example, the amount of Protease in the Daily Detox is 50,000 HUT. This means that each capsule has 50,000 units of activity. Using these units of activity to compare different enzyme formulations is crucial. The units of activity in a product are what counts when measuring enzymes, not the number of milligrams or another measuring system. What’s important is the amount of the product is capable of breaking down. When comparing our product with others, and they don’t use the Food Chemical Codex (FCC), it’s almost impossible to compare the two products. So when using other products that don’t use the Food Chemical Codex, ask them what is the activity level equivalent to the Food Chemical Codex. It is impossible to compare proprietary blend products to any other. A proprietary blend is a mixture of the ingredients stated in the blend.
The only thing the proprietary blend product states is the total amount of blend. They don’t state the amount of each ingredient or its activity level. Therefore, you don’t know what the activity level of each enzyme is, and this is the only measurement that is used when the supplier sells to the manufacturer for encapsulating the enzyme. For example, the ingredient supplier of the enzyme can sell 250mg that would equal 25,000 FCC/HUT of protease enzyme, or 250 mg that would equal 150,000 FCC/HUT of protease enzyme. In this example there is a 6 time difference in the amount of enzyme strength.
This is how some nutritional companies might mislead their customers in order to increase their profit margin. They may use lower cost ingredients, and formulate a product with weaker/lower activity enzymes and label the product as a proprietary blend or list the ingredients individually in mg. So when considering to buy a product that states a proprietary blend or ingredients listed in mg, ask for a copy of the certificate of analysis that comes from the lab. Don’t let yourself be misled by different terminology. Always know the quality/activity level of each ingredient in the product. Take a look for yourself and see how our product stands up next to others sold nationwide. We don’t mislead our customers.
Our enzymes are produced in an Organically Certified facility that is FDA inspected. Our product contains no fillers, yeast, dairy, wheat, soy, gluten or corn and is free of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. We use the highest quality raw materials to produce superior results.
We don't formulate proprietary blends to conceal the amounts of ingredients in our products. We want our customers to know exactly what they are getting. We want you to be able to compare our products to others if you want. All enzymes are clearly listed on the bottle using the latest units of activity based on the Food Chemical Codex (FCC), Academy of Sciences and accepted by the American Food Industry.
