Metabolic Detoxification Programs and Gut Health
Your body has its own detoxification process, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give it a hand. To perform the detoxification, your body requires certain vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other nutrients. In many cases, it does not eliminate toxins efficiently, which causes them to accumulate in organs and tissues, disrupting normal cellular function and increasing the risk for disease. A metabolic detox plan helps the body address and remove the toxins to ensure you remain healthy!
Your gut health is an important piece of the detoxification process — after all, the toxins are excreted through your urine, feces, or sweat. Numerous studies in the past two decades have demonstrated links between gut health and the immune system, mood, mental health, autoimmune diseases, endocrine disorders, skin conditions, and even cancer. That is because your gut microbiome contains up to 1,000 species of bacteria, most of which are extremely important for your health. Certain bacteria within the gut microbiome can produce chemicals that may block arteries and lead to heart disease, but a healthy gut helps your body digest certain foods and prevents disease-causing bacteria from sticking to the intestinal walls. In fact, the gut microbiome begins to affect your body the moment you are born!
An imbalance of unhealthy and healthy microbes in the intestines may contribute to weight gain, high blood sugar, high cholesterol, and other disorders.
