The number of chemicals and toxic metals in our environment is staggering. In the United States alone, there are more than 60,000 different compounds produced in large quantities for industrial and agricultural use, none of which require safety testing.
Are these industrial chemicals dangerous? Emerging evidence suggests the answer is yes. In response to the growing body of data, a new coalition of top physicians, scientists, and advocacy groups has formed to demand more aggressive action against these everyday pollutants. Their first-of-its-kind consensus statement, titled Project TENDR (Targeting Environmental Neuro-Developmental Risks) was just published in the journal, Environmental Health Perspectives. The group calls for urgent action to phase out certain chemicals such as pesticides, flame retardants, lead and other toxins which are shown to impact neurodevelopmental health in children, among other effects.
But can we wait for government and industry leaders to make these much needed changes?
If we want to support health in the face of persistent exposure to unregulated chemicals and toxins, we need strategies to safely remove these toxins from our bodies and prevent their reabsorption. And we need to take action today.
Making a Good System Even Better
While cells and certain organs are actually quite good at removing toxins, they simply can’t handle the kind of toxic load most of us face today. Despite the best efforts of our organs of elimination including the liver, kidneys, skin, immune system, lungs and GI tract, many toxins remain lodged in the body.
This is why ecoNugenics recommends PectaClear® Environmental Toxin Cleanse, which is a blend of PectaSol-C Modified Citrus Pectin and sodium alginates. This combination is clinically shown to bind and remove toxins and heavy metals from the digestive tract and the circulatory system, and prevent their reabsorption. Unlike harsh chelation agents, these gentle botanicals reduce toxic load without affecting essential mineral levels.*
ecoDetox® is another important detox support supplement that can be used together with PectaClear®. While PectaClear® works in the circulation and digestion to bind to heavy metals and safely eliminate them, ecoDetox® contains botanicals and nutrients that support the organs of elimination including liver, kidneys and skin. ecoDetox® helps to enhance the body’s natural detox mechanisms, including methylation, and promotes powerful antioxidant activity to help neutralize free radicals generated by toxic body burden.*
In our modern world, environmental toxicity is an everyday problem that requires an everyday solution. For optimal health, we need to regularly support the body’s abilities to eliminate toxins, safely. This includes healthy diet, exercise, stress relief and targeted detoxification ingredients designed to gently remove toxins and support long-term health in the process.
