Amino-D-Tox™ is formulated to help support a healthy, safe detoxification process in the body.* In today’s
modern, industrialized world, we come into contact with an endless array of harmful substances, such as
pesticides, fabric and upholstery treatments, industrial solvents, heavy metals, body care products, plus
workplace exposure to hazardous chemicals. In addition to neutralizing the effects of these substances, the
liver also has the job of metabolizing and detoxifying prescription and over-the-counter medications. As if all
that wasn’t enough, the liver detoxifies not only compounds from outside the body, but also ones we produce
inside us, as normal, natural byproducts of our own metabolism—including the breaking down of foods and the
degradation of hormones.
How detoxification works
We can think of the liver like a factory with two shifts. The first
shift (Phase I) receives raw materials, processes them, and
sends them on to the second shift (Phase II). However, some
of the products that pass through the first shift are more
harmful than the raw materials they started out as. So the
second shift, or Phase II, needs to be functioning optimally
in order to quickly get rid of these new, more damaging
substances. If the liver’s detoxification pathways become
overwhelmed, this can lead to an unwanted build-up of toxins
in the body.
The unique blend of nutrients in Amino D-Tox™ is specifically designed to support Phase II actions without
stimulating Phase I, thereby ensuring Phase II is primed to function efficiently before ramping up Phase I.
• Taurine, methionine, MSM, & N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC): sulfur-containing amino acids and compounds,
which support the sulfation pathway of detoxification. Think of sulfur as an ‘escort’ the liver uses to tag
certain toxins for removal from the body. This pathway requires sufficient sulfur to function optimally.
• Glutathione: the body’s master antioxidant and free-radical scavenger, aided by glutamine & NAC
• Calcium-D-Glucarate: supports the glucuronidation pathway and inhibits an enzyme that can undo Phase
II detoxification in the colon. Glucuronic acid, which is part of this pathway, is another of the liver’s escort
molecules that binds to toxins and aids in their excretion.
Amino D-Tox™ is a perfect addition to any detox program. It’s great for anyone who wants support for Phase II
detoxification pathways, and may even be used in preparation for an intensive detoxification/cleansing protocol.
Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, take six capsules per day between meals, or as directed by your
health care practitioner.
