Nutritional Detoxification Support
There are a number of nutrients, many of them commonly missing from the average diet, which have been shown to support the body’s natural detoxification mechanisms. These include choline, n-acetylcysteine, MSM, and r-lipoic acid. Each of these provide variances of antioxidant support, and support of liver detoxification enzymes.
In addition to these, there are a number of natural botanical extracts which are equally renowned for their potential for detox and antioxidant support. These include antioxidant-rich green tea extract, milk thistle – perhaps the most popular liver support ingredient, and curcumin extract from turmeric which is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory support agent. Each of these botanicals are bound to phytosomes in patented natural ingredients (Greenselect®, Siliphos®, and Meriva®, respectively) which utilized advanced liposomal delivery.
Avoiding Detox Deficiencies
While detoxification is essential to the long-term health and wellness of the human body, upregulation in detox mechanisms can potentially have the negative side effect of contributing to nutrient deficiencies, particularly in dietary minerals which are often flushed from the body, alongside harmful heavy metals, via the urinary tract.
Magnesium, a very important dietary mineral, is perhaps the most commonly affected by detoxification regimens. As such, Basic Detox Nutrients contains a potent 6 mg dose of highly bioavailable magnesium, alongside a number of other important dietary minerals.
As vitamin K interferes with the effect of anticoagulant drugs (like Coumadin), the concurrent use of these agents should be avoided.
Folinic acid and 5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate supplementation is not recommended concurrently with methotrexate cancer therapy, as they can interfere with methotrexate’s anti-neoplastic activity; however, these folate sources have not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.
Curcumin has been shown to reduce the therapeutic efficacy of cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) in animal studies. In vitro research reveals curcumin decreased camptothecin-induced death of cultured breast cancer cells. Curcumin might also interfere with the absorption and efficacy of the chemotherapy drug irinotecan, used to treat colon cancer. The concurrent use of curcumin with these agents should be avoided.
