What is Detox?
Your Body's Detox- Detox is a natural process that occurs in the body at all times. Normal detoxification works to eliminate, neutralize or store toxins to which we are exposed, the toxins we eat, or the toxins we apply to our skin as they enter the body. Liver, kidneys, lungs, colon and skin support natural detoxification functions to filter and clean the blood, eliminate waste and protect the body from harmful toxins. Though the body's physiology is complex, the modern world offers a highly toxic environment. Our greater exposure to heavy metals and complex industrial chemicals stress our bodies to the limit, making it difficult to manage and eliminate all of the toxins we encounter every day.
Helping Your Body Detox- Detox may also be a process we use to help the body mobilize, trap and eliminate toxins that have become stored in body tissues and organs. You may have heard of detox teas, herbal detox, colon cleanses, detox diets and chelation therapy for detoxification. Zeolite is, in fact, an oral chelator that allows you full control to help your body detox.
Is Detox Safe?Where any method may offer benefits, it is important to note that some methods may actually incur serious side effects as toxins mobilize. Side effects from toxins as they are released and forced to move may appear as nausea, diarrhea, acne or headaches. On a more serious scale, moving toxins can cause restless legs and other neurological effects or even hepatitis or kidney overload as kidneys and liver become stressed with processing too many toxins.
The One Safe DetoxThere is one completely safe detox method that has no side effects and may in fact be the only detox to allow the most profound health benefits- a very specific and carefully selected Zeolite called Natural Cellular Defense.
Rather than forcing the body to move and eliminate toxins, causing added stress and side effects of detox, Natural Cellular Defense zeolite acts with a completely different mechanism. Zeolite is a toxin trap. Its negative charge attracts and traps densely positive charges of heavy metals and other toxins. You may feel benefits immediately as NCD zeolite captures toxins in the bloodstream. Once trapped, the toxins cause absolutely no harm to your body. They are forever trapped withing the crystalline cage of zeolite to safely and effectively detox.
Why Is It Important to Detox?Removing toxins offers great health benefits ranging from disease prevention to possibly reversing the effects of serious disease symptoms. Studies show that people and pets are more toxic than ever and toxicity effects every aspect of our body functions; energy level, mood, thoughts processes, weight management, sleep and flexibility. Toxins are responsible for the body's reaction to allergens (causes of allergic reactions) and our inability to fight serious diseases such as cancer and viral infections.

Toxins and Free RadicalsAt the core of numerous aging and degenerative diseases such as heart disease, dementia, arthritis and cancer, scientists have uncovered toxins as the primary producer of free radicals in the body. Free radicals (oxidants) form when electrons are stolen from chemical reactions. Visualize how iron turns into rust (iron oxide) when exposed to water. The iron corrodes when oxidation occurs (the binding of oxygen to iron). In much the same way, oxidation occurs in the body when toxins steal electrons from healthy cells. The result is cell damage, aging and disease. Removing toxins (detox) with zeolite is a way to neutralize the effects of toxins in the body. In this way, zeolite acts as an antioxidant, capturing free radicals that cause cell damage.
How to Detox- Adding Supplements or Taking Away Toxins?Earth provides us with many resources and gifts to help the body heal. Each gift has a purpose and a level of effectiveness when used with specific direction and intensity. Though some strategies for detoxification involve flooding the body with soluble nutrients (liquid supplements) that are high in antioxidant properties, the effect of such a strategy has limitations. Heavy metals and other toxins present in the body will continue to create free radicals unless they are permanently removed. Antioxidant supplements, though very beneficial, become a temporary fix for a difficult, toxic situation. In addition, the presence of toxins (heavy metals) limits the absorption of nutrients.
You can see, then, that taking away toxins has a longer lasting benefit. The best strategy for detox is to first remove toxins permanently and then to add supplements to further bind with free radicals, nourish and rebuild healthy cells. In this 2 step process you'll have the greatest advantage for healing the body:
