Detox is our body’s natural ability to remove toxins, handled by the liver and also in the kidneys and skin. In this section we’ll be mainly focused on the two phases of detoxification: phase one and phase two. After examining two compounds associated with detox, foods and health, we’ll then investigate the genes and their effect on phase one and two. After gaining these insights, you’ll be able to make practical recommendations that you can help your clients to interpret their results and make nutritional changes that will improve their detox ability and overall health.
