The body is continuously overburdened with toxic substances created by the body itself as well as toxins which enter the body through diet, breathing and the skin. Heavy metals such as lead and mercury pollute the air and is breathed in, and contaminate certain foods (e.g. mercury in fish). Excess histamine is toxic, creates inflammation, can be created by the body during an immune response and is also taken in through foods such as read, cheese, wine and pizza. In addition to heavy metals and histamine, ammonium is created as a toxic by-product when the body breaks down protein in the intestinal tract. All of these toxins are present in the body and fundamentally overburden the liver and kidneys.
The kidneys control the pH level in the body by producing the alkaline substance ammonium. When the body is acidic, they produce ammonium, and when the body is too alkaline, they expel ammonium. Ammonium created from protein metabolisation in the intestines increases the toxic load on the kidneys and contribute towards decreased functionality. This can lead to an inability to eliminate uric acid (formed partly by ammonium) efficiently which can lead to gout.
When the liver is overburdened, it doesn’t feel pain. Rather, liver disease, such as fatty liver and cirrhosis, manifests itself as illnesses of the body such as jaundice, chronic fatigue syndrome, and high levels of ammonium in the body (which can become neurotoxic) due to an inability of the liver to detoxify ammonium. An overburdened liver will send toxins such as heavy metals to be stored in fat, muscle and bone, contributing to further problems.
As such, the metabolic organs need help in their daily job as they are responsible for detoxifying the body. Toxaprevent absorbs heavy metals (mercury and lead), histamine and ammonium in the digestive tract and is not absorbed by the body. By binding these substances in the digestive tract and eliminating them through natural bowel movements, the metabolic organs do not have to process them. This relieves the liver and kidneys of their toxic burden, increasing their capacity to do their job better, keep better control of the pH level in the body, and aids in the prevention of liver disease, whilst allowing the metabolic organs to respond better to other treatments and therapies.
