Let’s face it: No matter how hard you try to keep your diet and environment pure, you just can’t avoid all of the harmful toxins in the air you breathe, the water you drink and the soil your food is grown in. It’s a global problem, unfortunately, there’s no escaping it.
Toxic overload can seriously impact your health and make you feel miserable. This occurs when your liver — your body’s primary organ of detoxification — just can’t keep up with the task of eliminating the toxins you’re exposed to on a daily basis.
Is your liver crying out for help?
Take this one-minute assessment to find out whether you’re showing signs of toxic overload.
- I experience digestive discomfort or bloating after eating.
- I crave sweet, starchy or salty foods.
- I have struggled with attempts at losing weight.
- I often feel tired and develop dark circles under my eyes.
- I have difficulty concentrating or staying focused.
- My moods fluctuate and I often feel irritable.
- I’m prone to itchy skin or other allergy symptoms.
- I seem to catch every bug that comes around.
- I experience unexplained headaches or other pain.
- I have trouble falling or staying asleep.
If you answered “Yes” to 2 or more of these statements, chances are your liver is struggling to do its job and, if you don’t take action now, your health could continue to suffer and even deteriorate. But it’s important that you understand what you’re doing to avoid causing yourself more harm.
Detox programs, packaged “cleanses” and other all-in-one products that promise to flush the toxins out of your body certainly are trendy. But are they as safe and effective as their proponents claim? You might be surprised to learn what I uncovered in my research.
Please keep reading, because I’m going to give you all the details you need to know about how to safely and effectively support your liver in eliminating toxins, and dramatically boost your health.
The Right (and Wrong) Way to Detox
If you are feeling run down, lethargic, heavy, bloated, “foggy brained,” irritable or otherwise less than your best, you’re probably wondering what you can do to feel better.
Maybe you’ve heard about detoxing and how it can help you lose weight, clear up brain fog and boost your energy. Perhaps you’ve also been told that a good detox can clean out your liver, support your immune function and make you look and feel younger. And with an ever-increasing number of studies linking exposure to toxins to negative health effects, it’s no wonder that detox is so trendy.
In my experience, all of these good things — and more — can happen as a result of detoxification, but only if you do it right. And what most people don’t realize is that doing it wrong can actually magnify the risks these dangerous toxins pose. That’s right, cleansing can actually make your body “dirtier” or more toxic, and the implications for your health can be disastrous.
The Plain Truth About Detoxification
Most toxins you encounter are fat-soluble, which means your body stores them in fat cells. In turn, it’s the job of your liver to metabolize fat-soluble toxins and transform them into water-soluble derivatives for subsequent elimination from the body. Usually this system works extremely well.
The problems start when your “detox” regimen begins to pull these toxins out of your fat cells and into your bloodstream at a rate that is far too rapid for the liver to keep up with. Once this happens, they can quickly travel throughout your body wreaking havoc and making you feel miserable.
When we’re talking about detoxification, I firmly believe the conversation should not be about flushing all the toxins out of your system in a short period of time, but rather about supporting the function of your body’s own detoxification systems on a daily basis. This is the key to “detox done right” in my opinion.
The Incredible Benefits of Detox Done Right
With the correct daily detox plan, the health effects you can achieve can be truly remarkable.
The first things most people notice are better digestion and a wonderful boost in energy. As your liver gets the help it needs to flush out toxins on a daily basis, you’ll start to feel lighter and livelier with more energy and enthusiasm for tackling projects and doing the things you love. Many people find they are able to think more clearly too. Brain fog dissolves, and with it goes that irritable, stressed out feeling.
Over time, everything simply starts to work better — from your joints and muscles to your immune system. Your skin will glow, and people will remark that you look younger and healthier. And there’s a good chance your doctor will notice a difference, too, at your next checkup.
My Safe, Effective and Easy Detox Plan
Trust me when I say this — safe and effective detoxification shouldn’t make you feel woozy from lack of nutrients. It won’t require you to drink strange concoctions, and it won’t interrupt your life by forcing you to plan your day around being constantly near a bathroom. So what’s the best approach?
Here’s my 5-step foolproof plan for what you need to do:
Step 1: Limit your exposure to toxins. Choose organic foods when possible, and filter your drinking water. Use natural, nontoxic products on your skin. And avoid unnecessary pharmaceutical drugs.
Step 2: Support your pathways of elimination. Make sure you’re getting enough fiber to ensure that waste moves through your intestines efficiently, and increase your intake of water.
Step 3: Stay active. Many toxins are carried to the lungs to be eliminated in respiration. In addition, any type of sweating facilitates the release of toxins through the skin.
Step 4: Consume detox-promoting foods. Many phytonutrients enhance the operation of the body’s natural detoxification systems. It’s important to incorporate a wide variety of fruits and vegetables into your diet.
Step 5: Take supplemental nutrients to support your liver. Breakthrough research suggests that certain natural compounds can help support your body’s ability to detoxify.
The Two Best Supplements for Detox
There are a lot of supplements that promise to “detox,” but in my opinion, there are two that truly stand out for their safety and effectiveness: glutathione and milk thistle extract.
These are the supplements my readers tend to have the most success with, and they work well together.
Glutathione is an enzyme that has the ability to boost levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD), which is perhaps the most powerful antioxidant in your body.[7,8] Glutathione is found in every cell and plays a critical role in controlling inflammation, supporting your immune system and facilitating the removal of toxins.[8,9]
However, glutathione levels can decline by up to 50% below optimal levels as you age, and the consequences can adversely impact your health and well-being.[10,11]
In my opinion, it’s nearly impossible to get enough glutathione from food for significant benefits, which is why supplementation is so important. I recommend taking at least 50 mg daily of the superior reduced form of glutathione.
Milk thistle has been used for thousands of years to support liver health, and it remains one of the most effective herbs for liver cleansing and support. Milk thistle also supports healthy levels of glutathione in the body and promotes beneficial levels of detoxification enzymes in the liver, kidneys and intestines.[13,14]
And remarkable research has shown that silymarin, one of the key active compounds in milk thistle, supports detoxification by lowering oxidative stress in the liver associated with toxin metabolism. In addition, milk thistle can support liver function and normalize elevated liver enzyme levels.
Taking a high-quality milk thistle supplement is your best bet in terms of getting beneficial amounts, in my opinion. Based on what the studies show, I recommend taking a standardized extract that provides a daily dose of 420 mg of silymarin.
The Easy Way to Start a Detox Plan That Works
By now, I hope I’ve convinced you of the importance of a daily detox plan.
I think you’ll be amazed as to how quickly it can revitalize your health from head to toe. Not only that, you’ll be supporting the health of your liver and your immune system at the same time.
The first thing to do is avoid short-term cleanses. Not only can they sap your energy while disrupting your daily routine, they can actually do more harm than good as the rapid release of toxins overwhelms your liver’s ability to process them.
The second action item is to follow my 5-step plan above the best you can, and that includes taking high-quality glutathione and milk thistle supplements daily.
The All-in-One Supplement I Recommend
I got so frustrated with hearing readers complain about the low quality and high cost of the detox supplements out there that I decided something had to be done.
My goal was simple — make the wonderful benefits of daily detox available to as many people as possible in an effective, affordable and convenient formula.
In addition to my work with the Live in the Now newsletter, I also run Stop Aging Now, a company that has been proudly making premium-grade supplements for over 20 years. Working with the company’s Scientific Advisory Board, I created a formula that combines 7 of the most powerful ingredients for detoxification known to science, including potent doses of glutathione and milk thistle.
My formula is called Synergy7®, and I designed it to be the best daily detoxification supplement on the market.
Synergy7 was formulated to help support healthy liver function, daily detoxification of environmental toxins, balanced hormones and overall wellness with a unique synergistic blend of 7 ingredients — all in just 2 small capsules per day. (No messy powders, complicated protocols or restrictive diets.)
And it’s as low as $14.95 per bottle with free shipping. And because I’m so confident it works, it also comes with an unbeatable 365-day return policy.
I take Synergy7 every single day without fail. Here’s why you should consider doing the same:
Safe, Gentle and Effective: Unlike harsh “cleanses,” which can disrupt your regular activities, Synergy7 is intended for daily use. I designed it to work by strengthening your body’s natural systems of detoxification to promote optimal digestion, immunity, hormone balance and energy levels.
100 mg of Glutathione: Synergy7 features the superior reduced form of this enzyme that increases stores of potent antioxidant superoxide dismutase (SOD) and fortifies the body’s antioxidant system. 100 mg is more than enough to give you the support you need.
526 mg of Milk Thistle Extract: Synergy7 is made with a premium-grade, standardized milk thistle extract that provides 420 mg of silymarin, the dose shown in the research to support the liver in detoxification.
SproutGarden® Cruciferous Vegetable Blend: This USA-grown blend of high antioxidant cruciferous vegetable sprouts contains cleansing plant enzymes and helps support healthy glutathione levels.
Even More Cleansing Nutrients: Synergy7 also includes the detox enhancing nutrients calcium D-glucarate, alpha lipoic acid, N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) and selenium.
Quality You Can Trust: Synergy7 is made in Stop Aging Now’s own state-of-the-art, FDA-inspected facility located in Florida to meet the stringent standards of U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) for quality, purity, potency and disintegration.
Affordable: Synergy7 is available for as low as $14.95 per bottle, which is the same or even less than those discount, low-quality products. Plus, it ships to you for free.
Risk Free: Synergy7 also comes with an “any reason” 365-day guarantee. That’s right, take it for up to one year and return it for a full refund if you don’t like it.
