When the liver and kidneys are overburdened, their ability to eliminate harmful substances from the body becomes impaired and the skin is used to support detoxification. This can cause acne and inflammation on the skin. When the area affected by acne is scratched, histamine is produced and the problem worsens.
Ammonium, a toxic by-product of protein metabolisation must be detoxified by the liver. In those with a high protein diet, more ammonium is produced which burdens the liver more so. Heavy metals such as lead and mercury have also been shown to contribute towards a hormone imbalance which can also lead to acne. In addition, excess histamine in the digestive tract (see histamine intolerance) can be absorbed by the body and create inflammation on the skin.
The Toxaprevent Digestive range binds and eliminates ammonium, heavy metals and histamine from the digestive tract. These substances are eliminated via natural bowel movements instead of being absorbed by the body. This prevents the liver from having to detoxify the ammonium eliminated by Toxaprevent, reduces the effect that heavy metals have on a hormone imbalance and eliminates excess histamine to prevent it from being absorbed by the body where it can cause inflammation.
In addition, the Toxaprevent SKIN range binds and eliminates histamine and other toxic substances on skin and beneath the outer layer of skin. This reduces inflammation on the affected area and is used to treat acne topically while the digestive range is used to alleviate the condition by relieving the liver and eliminating toxins from inside the body. This reduces the need to detoxify via the skin.
