Your liver is the most important organ for clearing out toxins. The liver has a unique ability to decide what is good for the body and what is bad for the body as it passes through and when it comes across a toxin it has the ability to turn a fat soluble toxin into water soluble waste. This is done in two main phases:
Phase 1: Phase one of the process uses enzymes to break down the toxins. There are specific nutrients that are needed to be able to perform this action they are
Vitamin B2, B3, B6, B12, Folic Acid, Glutathione, Flavonoids
The broken down toxins are called intermediary metabolites and can be more harmful to the body than the origional fat soluble toxins so they are quickly sent through phase two to become less toxic.
Phase 2: This is the conjugation phase which means molecules are added to the intermediary metabolites to make then non-toxic and water soluble so they can be eliminated. They are eliminated through the urine and stool. The nutrients needed in phase two are...
Methionine, Cysteine, Magnesium, Glutathione, Vitamins B5, B12, C, Glycine, Taurine, Glutamine, Folic Acid, Choline
Everyone's body has the innate ability to detoxify and eliminate but due to the environment we live in and things we consume it makes it very difficult have a diet that has the necessary nutrients for true detoxification. This is where core restore comes in. It provides the body with all the proper nutrients and a diet guide to help the body restore its innate abilities.
My experience Day 2:
I did wake up with a headache, mild nausea and certain smells being too strong which are all normal symptoms of detoxification. These symptoms slowly lessoned as the day went on and were resolved by the evening.
The small amount of hunger I experienced yesterday was not there.
I am looking forward to Day 3 where I will add food into my diet. The program has provided me with a list of foods that will increase detoxification and foods that will decrease detoxification as well as recipes and shopping lists to make this process more manageable.
Tomorrow morning I will start my day off with a Vanilla Berry Smoothie!
Two days down Five to go!
