Phase 0 Assist / Metal-X Synergy is designed to help support the normal process of heavy metal detox from the body. It contains a wide array of ingredients, which work together to reduce the initial absorption of metals into the tissues and organs, pull them out more effectively, and help to decrease their reabsorption through enterohepatic recirculation.
Phase 0 Assist contains patented complexes of modified citrus pectin (PectaSol-C®) and alginate (Algimate®), two complex polysaccharides that work together to bind to heavy metals without depleting essential minerals from the body. Consider combining this formula with Hepatatone Plus™, Amino D-Tox™ and/or PaleoCleanse™ for liver and detoxification support. Made with non-GMO ingredients.
What is Chelation? Chelation is the process of forming a bond between a compound and a metal atom. Agents that chelate can bind to metal atoms. After binding, the compound is considered safer and is better able to be excreted by the body.
Modified Citrus Pectin: Pectin is a polysaccharide (a complex carbohydrate) found in the cell wall of many citrus fruits. This product uses a unique proprietary process that allows for the correct low molecular weight and structure of pectin necessary for it to enter cells and help chelate heavy metals.
Modified Alginate Complex: Alginates are the carbohydrates that make up the cell wall of seaweed with the distinct capability to bind heavy metals to their own molecules.
Chlorella: Chlorella is a green algae that offers a rich supply of nutrients that can also bind to metals after they are released from tissues to help prevent reabsorption.
Glutathione: Glutathione is an important antioxidant in the body made up of three amino acids. It helps protects tissues from heavy metals and helps the liver convert toxins into safer compounds via detoxification.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC): NAC is an amino acid that supports healthy liver function with chelating properties and strong antioxidant supportive properties to help protect tissues from toxins. As a precursor to glutathione, it helps to replenish this important antioxidant.
R-Lipoic Acid: R-Lipoic acid has properties that aid in regenerating other antioxidants. Additionally, it has chelation properties to support the detoxification of heavy metals.
Garlic: Garlic is a rich dietary source of sulfur compounds that aid in the chelation of heavy metals. Additionally, it is rich in nutrients that support antioxidant status, including stimulating glutathione production.
