You’ve likely heard the word ‘detox’ at some point in your life — perhaps even in the last day or week or month — but do you really know what it does and why detoxification can be good for your body when done correctly?
At its simplest and most literal, detoxification is the process of removing toxins from something. In our case, detoxification clears away toxins and other nasty substances from our bodies.
What toxins? I eat a healthy diet and exercise!
Regardless of your lifestyle, there are still things that you can detox from your body. Two of the main culprits are heavy metals and free radicals. Heavy metals usually show up in trace amounts and are essential for maintaining human life. However, other heavy metals can be found at higher, potentially dangerous levels, such as lead, arsenic, cadmium or mercury. (Some of these may show up in substances you consume, such as certain food preservatives, while others may be present in the environment, cleaning detergents or where the air quality is poor.)
Free radicals are, essentially, unstable atoms (the building blocks of everything) that can cause damage to cells. That damage can lead to various illnesses as well as aging.
As you get older, your body steadily becomes unable to fight off free radicals, which speeds up the aging process. Beyond heavy metals and free radicals, detoxification can also help to remove harmful chemicals found in some processed foods or even the environment.
See why people could want to remove these substances from their bodies?
The ability to help support the detoxification process — and ultimately the ability to Live Healthy™ — was why we developed Nutrifii Restoriix™, a revolutionary formula designed to assist your body’s natural detoxification process while helping to restore pH levels and support immune function.
To dig in a little deeper, we’ve broken down Restoriix’s key ingredients to show you how each can help support the detoxification process in your body.
Likely the most recognizable ingredient in Restoriix, activated charcoal is a product made from carbon-based substances (such as wood or tree bark) treated with high heat and oxygen, creating a much bigger surface area that is also incredibly porous. This type of charcoal is commonly found in water filters but is also used in the wellness field to help detox the body.
Activated charcoal made from willow tree bark, a part of the Restoriix formula, can bond to and carry thousands of times its own weight in toxins and other chemicals. Activated charcoal does not get absorbed by the gut. Once the charcoal absorbs these toxins and chemicals, the body eliminates them.
Zeolites are natural volcanic minerals mined in unique locations. The chemical reaction between volcanic ash and salty ocean spray forms zeolites in hardened lava over the course of thousands of years. Zeolite has a unique structure consisting of large, vacant spaces that attract free radicals and eliminate them from the body.
Thanks to its honeycomb-like design, zeolite works at the cellular level to trap unwanted materials. And because it is one of the few negatively charged minerals in nature, zeolite acts as a magnet, drawing free radicals to it. Zeolite also helps maintain balanced pH levels in the body and boosts healthy alkalinity levels, essential for good health and immune support.
As you know from enjoying many of our other products, such as the Tahitian Noni® or LIMU® lines of products, superfoods are nutrient-dense foods that can be considered “extra healthy” because of the sheer number of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals they contain. In Restoriix, we primarily use three superfoods as part of our blend: chlorella, chia seed and spirulina.
Coming from the chia plant (Salvia hispanica), chia seeds were a staple among the ancient Aztecs and Maya of Mexico and Guatemala because of just how good they were for you. Chia seeds are incredibly high in fiber and omega-3s in addition to a good amount of protein, vitamins and minerals.
A single-celled, freshwater type of algae, chlorella is packed to the brim with vitamins and nutrients. It is a great source of iron, magnesium, vitamin A, zinc and omega-3 fatty acids and includes high levels of vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin) and B9 (folate). Chlorella has been shown to help bind to heavy metals and other toxins in the body to help flush them before they do damage, assisting the detoxification process.
One of the most powerful life-giving substances on the planet is chlorophyll, the pigment that gives green foods their color. Chlorophyll-rich foods have an intense green color, and they help build new blood cells and purify the body. Chlorophyll also assists in oral hygiene and deodorization of the body.*
Ginger is popular both for its flavor and health-supporting properties. A powerful antioxidant, ginger has been shown to improve blood circulation and has a long history of alleviating symptoms of gastrointestinal distress.
Another type of algae — this time a blue-green, saltwater variety — spirulina is another potent superfood found in Restoriix. Like chlorella, it’s rich in vitamins, minerals and nutrients, including copper, iron, magnesium, and vitamins B1, B2 and B3 (Niacin). Research has also shown spirulina to have antioxidant properties.
