Detox has two phases. Both depend on nutrients.
Phase I, oxidation, uses over 100 special enzymes.It turns toxins into either water-soluble molecules that can be excreted or reactive chemicals that move on to phase II. Toxins include things like caffeine, alcohol, bad fats, sulfa drugs, fumes from things like paint or exhaust, old blood cells, and hormones. There is a specific enzyme to alter each particular toxin. The liver needs fat-soluble vitamins like vitamins A, D, and E to make these enzymes. It also needs antioxidants to counteract the extremely toxic free radicals made by disassembling the toxins.
Phase II, conjugation, helps toxins become things of the past!Conjugation turns the disassembled toxins into less harmful ones. These new water-soluble toxins are excreted via six major routes including urine and bile. Each pathway removes specific toxins using specific nutrients. Sulfur (which you can get in broccoli or garlic) and amino acids (such as taurine and cysteine in eggs and shellfish) activate many of the pathways.
