GI Detox is a new supplement designed to help clear toxins (such as LPS, heavy metals, and metabolites of yeast, mold or bacteria) and other unwanted debris from the body. While it's always important to be cleaning out your system, taking a binding agent like GI Detox is especially crucial when you're in the process of healing your gut. Gut-healing protocols can stir up the toxins in your system at first, causing a die-off (or Herxheimer) reaction. But taking a binder like GI Detox, you help escort the offenders out of your body quickly, helping you feel better, faster. As this product contains strong binders, make sure to take with a full glass of water at least 1 hour away from food and supplements.
GI Detox includes:
- Zeolite Clay - Chelating and binding agent to assist in removal of toxins and heavy metals. Tested for purity and sourced from within the US.
- Activated Charcoal - Sourced from bamboo, it assists in binding and absorbing a variety of organic and inorganic compounds.
- Aloe Vera Extract - This anti-inflammatory inner leaf material assists in bowel motility, and promotes healing
- MMST Silica - Another well known chelating agent to assist in binding toxins and metals. Ours is bound to Acacia Gum to convert easily into orthosilicic acid (OSA) for enhanced bioavailability.
- Apple Pectin - Another excellent chelating agent, with a broad affinity for various biotoxins.
- Humic and Fulvic acids - With a broad range of benefits, these natural soil-based agents are known for binding metals and pesticide biotoxins.
Does the pyrophyllite clay in the G.I. Detox product contain aluminum in its chemical structure?
Yes, because that is how clays are formed. Some other common clays containing aluminum are bentonite, kaolinite, and montmorillonite clays. In fact, every single clay on Earth has a chemical “backbone” of heavy metal minerals in its structure. The chemical structure of clays attracts heavy metals to the clay, and does not leach them out. This is why clays are used in industry (and traditional healing practices) as binding agents. It is impossible for a human digestive tract to free the aluminum from the pyrophyllite clay, so there is no risk of aluminum absorption into the body. Our pyrophyllite clay is rigorously tested for any impurity by a third party, prior to inclusion in G.I. Detox capsules at a cGMP facility.
