Take a ride through the detox express in this episode of our podcast. Let’s learn about the importance of detoxification. Here’s what we’re going over in this podcast episode:

The definition of detoxification. Differentiation between “frank poisoning” and “bioaccumulation”

Toxins have to be excreted, metabolized or stored. The majority of the toxins we’re exposed to are being stored in our fatty tissues. We are exposed to two types of toxins – endogenous (the ones our bodies naturally make as a by-product of metabolism) and exogenous (the toxins we take in from our environment).

Since WWII, we saw a drastic increase in man-made chemicals to the tune of 80,000. These chemicals are causing serious detrimental effects upon our bodies.
