A Dietary Supplement to Support Detoxification Functions*
Detox PRO™ combines various minerals, herbs, antioxidants, glutathione precursors, amino acids, DMG and 3 patented ingredients known to support bioavailability and liver health.*
Detox PRO™ is recommended for:
+ people searching for support for normal toxin cleansing and individuals on a weight-loss program*
+ people exposed to chemical solvents (painters, dry cleaners, construction workers, printers, office workers, auto mechanics, manicurists, and beauticians)
+ people who experience continuing fatigue*
+ people undergoing sauna therapy and people with chemical sensitivities*
Detox PRO™ supports normal detoxification in the following ways*:
+ providing advanced, balanced support for multiple phases of detoxification*
+ supporting kidney, liver and colon health and function*
+ supporting the detoxification of solvents, metabolic wastes, micro-organisms, environmental toxins and drugs*
Phases of Detoxification:
+ Phase I (neutralize) involves a group of enzymes, known as the cytochrome P450 family, which are all imbedded in healthy cell membranes of liver cells. When cytochrome P450 enzymes metabolize a toxin, it chemically transforms it to a less toxic form making it a water soluble substance ready for Phase II. During Phase I many free radicals are generated making antioxidants a critical component to a well rounded program.
+ Phase II (conjugate) involves a process called conjugation. Conjugation may be defined as the addition or coming together of compounds in order to neutralize toxins, making them more easily excreted through the urine or bile. The major conjugation reactions include glucuronidation, amino acid conjugation, sulfation, glutathione conjugation, acetylation and methylation.*
+ Phase III (eliminate) is when the toxins actually exit the body. Colon health, digestion and overall intestinal wellbeing are intricately involved in the health of the detoxification process. The Bacillus coagulans used in this formula are a vegetarian, dairy free source of probiotics providing five billion colony-forming units that support intestinal wellness and colon health to allow for a healthy elimination process.* Burdock is a source of inulin and mucilage offering a soothing effect on the GI tract.* As a prebiotic and fiber, Inulin supports the growth of friendly and healthy intestinal bacteria which supports good colon health and microbial balance in the gut during and following a detoxification program.*
+ Urinary Tract Support is also covered in this formula as it too plays a role in the elimination process.* Uva Ursi Leaf Extract is most commonly known for its kidney supportive cleansing properties.* Stinging Nettle Leaf Extract is an herb that supports removal of metabolic waste for easy excretion through the kidneys.*
ChewZyme™ Pro Chewable is a gluten free, vegetarian and probiotic diges-
tive enzyme supplement for adults.*
ChewZyme™ Pro Chewable Features:
+ Vegetarian source of enzymes and probiotics
+ Lactase to break down milk sugar and dairy products
+ Protease enzyme
+ Enzyme support in vegetarians*
+ Proteolytic enzyme support*
+ Geriatric individuals or those individuals under stress*
+ Support for those with a need for additional enzyme and probiotic support*
Lactase supports the breakdown of lactose, a milk sugar...* If lactose is not broken down properly
it can cause intolerance in some individuals...*
Bromelain is a proteolytic that digests proteins into smaller units (peptides and amino acids) for
better absorption and utilization...* Incomplete digestion of proteins can lead to food
sensitivities in some individuals...*
Protease enzymes break down proteins into peptides and amino acids necessary to support proper
growth and repair of cells and help the production of enzymes, hormones and DNA...*
Lipase enzymes help digest and assimilate fats which are essential for the absorp- tion of fat
Amylase break down carbohydrates for energy to drive our brains, nervous system, heart, lungs and
+ Lactobacilli strains are located in the small intestine and produce lactic acid.
Many strains of bacteria from the lactobacillus family have been shown to
support regularity and urogenital health, produce the lactase enzyme and help
protect the gut from unwanted microorganisms...*
+ Bifidobacterium are located in the colon and produce lactic acid and acetic acids, making the gut
a very inhospitable place for unwanted material. Bifido- bacteria also support regularity...*
Bacillus coagulans is a spore forming, lactic acid producing bacteria. It supports immune system
function, elimination of unwanted
material and has been shown to help reduce gas and bloating....*
Enzymes are protein based compounds that function as catalysts to initiate and regulate the biochemical processes necessary for life.
The human body produces thousands of different enzymes to catalyze reactions that are needed to maintain homeostasis, including break down, synthesis and repair.
Enzymes operate with substrate specificity, meaning they will only catalyze a reaction with a specific compound or group of compounds. For example, proteases will only catalyze the breakdown of proteins and will not react with carbohydrates or fats. The ability of an enzyme to interact with its substrate is attributed to the conformational structure of the enzyme’s active site. Simply stated, the active site of a protease will “fit” with the shape of proteins where it does not “fit” with a carbohydrate or fat.
The need for enzymes are exacerbated with altered digestive function in the upper digestive tract. When stomach acid is altered there is a downstream effect on enzyme secretion from the pancreas. This creates a need for supplemental enzymes to facilitate proper breakdown, absorption and assimilation of nutrients.*
This comprehensive formula includes the following broad range of enzymes (listed below with their functions) at clinically significant levels.*
- Amylase: breaks down carbohydrates.
- Lipase: breaks down fats.
- Proteases (such as Trypsin and Pepsin): breaks down proteins.
- Cellulase: breaks down fiber.
- Glucoamylase: breaks down maltose.
- Invertase: breaks down sucrose.
- Peptidase: breaks down casein and gluten.
- Alpha-galactosidase: breaks down carbohydrates in legumes.
- Xylanase: breaks down plant fibers.
- Pectinase: breaks down pectin found in fruits.
- Hemicellulase: breaks down plant fibers.
- Phytase: breaks down minerals bound to phytic acid in plants.
- Beta-glucanase: breaks down beta-glucan, a special type of fiber found in yeast, grains and mushrooms.
