Comprehensive support for the detoxification of heavy metals
Contains nutrients which increase the synthesis and regeneration of glutathione, a potent detoxifier of reactive oxygen species and heavy metals
Provides diverse antioxidant support as well as neurological, renal and hepatoprotective nutrients
Highly bioavailable minerals supply detoxification enzyme cofactors which are often deficient
Clear-HM provides advanced heavy metal detoxification support, supplying nutrients which increase glutathione levels, assist in heavy metal removal, improve antioxidant status, and protect against cellular and hepatic damage. N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) and alpha-lipoic acid both increase cellular levels of glutathione, which binds to mercury and reactive oxygen species and participates in the detoxification of many xenobiotics via conjugation reactions.1-5 They are powerful antioxidants and have been found to reduce toxicity to multiple organs from lead, arsenic, mercury, and cadmium.6,7,8
Spirulina platensisis a potent free radical scavenger, found to protect against heavy metal induced organ damage and to prevent anemia, leukopenia and the deposition of heavy metals in the brain.9-12 Spirulina also contains significant amounts of alkaline phosphatase activity, which may assist in the detoxification of organophosphorus pesticides.13 Vitamins B6 and C are required for the synthesis or regeneration of glutathione, with the latter providing broad antioxidant support minimizing heavy metal toxicity.14,15 Milk thistle is a well-established hepatoprotectant, and magnesium, often deficient in those with toxin exposure, provides an essential cofactor for many detoxification and mitochondrial enzymes.16,17
