Toxins can be divided into two groups, those that are fat soluble and those that are water-soluble. Fat-soluble toxins are released by the liver and secreted into the bile for excretion into the intestines, whereas water-soluble toxins pass out through the kidneys and leave the body through the urine.
Maintaining these detoxification pathways by resolving kidney stones, gallstones and biliary sludge is a prerequisite to any detoxification protocol. For a total detoxification protocol you may also wish to consider Medicardium and Xeneplex .
Bile is responsible for many aspects of our intestinal health. Bile neutralizes stomach acids, emulsifies fats, is a natural laxative and kills parasites and candida. Insufficient bile can cause ulcers, malnutrition, constipation, and allow parasitic and fungal infestations.
Glytamins may support the body in maintaining proper bile manufacture and flow.
Everyone develops small crystal in his or her kidneys and gallbladders. Some people have literally hundreds of stones that have accumulated in their bodies. In approximately 1 out of 4 people, these crystallizations eventually grow large enough to require medical attention.
These crystallizations are typically accumulations of calcium, oxalic acid, uric acid and cholesterol.
Glytamins may support the body in both dissolving these crystallizations and preventing the formation of new ones.
While Glytamins is not specifically formulated to deal with an acute case of kidney stones, scientific literature shows that Chanca Piedra, (one of the main ingredients) has been used over time to support the dissolution of calcium oxalate and uric acid crystals, the main constituents of kidney stones.
Liver and Gall Bladder Purge
The liver, gall bladder and hepatic ducts can all suffer from accumulations of biliary sludge and gallstones. Bile, unable to pass into the duodenum can backwash into the liver and pancreas, causing alkali burns in those organs.
Traditional remedies for gallstones and biliary sludge involve drinking large quantities of Epsom salts, lemon juice and olive oil in an attempt to cause powerful contractions of the gallbladder and a resulting purge of biliary sludge and gallstones. This kind of purge can be very uncomfortable and does nothing to resolve the underlying cause of these accumulations.
Glytamins are designed to support this function without uncomfortable side effects.
