Every day you are exposed to a barrage of chemicals in the environment that are not naturally found in your body. These chemicals can take a toll on your overall health and wellness. Thankfully, your body has a natural detoxification system to help get rid of harmful substances that you are exposed to in the environment, or from household products and even the food you eat. Your detoxification system has 2 phases: First, when chemicals enter your body, Phase 1 detoxifying enzymes begin to process them into metabolites, which may be potentially harmful. Next, Phase 2 detoxifying enzymes change the potentially harmful metabolites into water-soluble compounds that can be easily excreted from your body.
