AOR Cellular Detox contains sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS), Calcium D-Glucarate and Bifidobacterium Longum which have been documented to induce the Phase-2 detoxification enzyme systems, protect cells from dangerous chemicals and prevent cellular DNA damage.
Detoxification is known as a general removal of toxic substances from the body. 'Detox' has become a huge trend in today's society, with many different methods of detoxification available. The body detoxifies itself through various organs including the skin, kidneys, bowels and the liver. The liver is especially important for detoxification, and uses a process called phase II detoxification to detoxify these substances and eliminate them from the body. Increased phase II detoxification is protective against many cancers, cardiovascular disease, stroke and hypertension.
Sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS)
SGS,is a naturally occurring compound found in the brassica family of vegetables, such as broccoli. Sulforaphane has been shown to stimulate the natural defenses of the body to prevent or ameliorate chronic disease. It is a natural antioxidant and a potent inducer of phase II liver detoxification enzymes.
The detox team
D-glucarate and the probiotic Bifidobacterium longum (BB-536) provide additional support for cellular detoxification. D-glucarate is an important compound that helps to promote the detoxification of carcinogens and toxins in the liver. It does so by deactivating a harmful enzyme that reactivates toxins in the body. BB-536 is a specialized strain of probiotic that has been shown to detoxify and eliminate harmful toxins in the colon, helping to prevent cancer of the colon.
• promotes the effective removal of toxins and carcinogens in the liver and colon
• helps protect the body from cancer
• clinically proven to enhance phase II detoxification
• supports liver, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal health
The Truth about Detoxification
Detoxification involves the removal of toxic substances from the body. Detoxification occurs mainly in the liver, but the kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and skin are also important when it comes to clearing toxins from the body. Unfortunately, detoxification has also become synonymous with cleansing - a term loosely used to describe all sorts of treatments aimed at purifying or purging the body. Many such treatments are unproven, make little sense physiologically, and can even be dangerous. True detoxification begins at the cellular levels, and involves enhancing the body’s natural mechanisms for eliminating toxins and harmful substances. Many natural compounds have been shown to support this process.
The Benefits of Sulforaphane
The consumption of leafy green vegetables has been associated with a reduced incidence of cancer. Research has indicated that this cancer preventative action is linked to compounds called isothiocyanates. One such isothiocyanate is Sulforaphane glucosinolate. This natural compound found in broccoli has been shown to inhibit tumor formation and support healthy detoxification.
Sulforaphane is a potent inducer of phase II detoxification enzymes, which are the enzymes in the liver responsible for the detoxification of toxins and carcinogens. Enhanced Phase II detoxification greatly assists the body in reducing the overall toxic burden as well as affording substantial other health benefits in immune function, heart health, antiinflammatory and anti-cancer effects. The most widely studied aspect of sulforaphane is its potential as an anti-cancer agent. Sulforaphane’s anti-cancer effect is attributed to the stimulation of phase II enzymes, apoptosis (cell suicide), cell cycle arrest (preventing replication), reduction of the spread of tumours (metastases) and the inhibition of blood supply to cancer cells (angiogenesis).
Sulforaphane also has powerful antioxidant effects, and can help reduce oxidative stress in the body. It has also been shown to reduce inflammation, support cardiovascular health, reduce blood pressure and lessen allergy symptoms.
D-glucarate is a naturally occurring compound that plays a very important role in the detoxification of toxins and carcinogens. One very important detoxification pathway in the body is the glucuronidation pathway. Through glucuronidation toxic substances and environmental carcinogens are neutralized and eliminated from the body. This important process can be disrupted by the enzyme beta-glucuronidase, which reactivates the neutralized toxins. Impaired glucuronidation has been linked to susceptibility to many cancers and other diseases.
D-glucarate acts to inhibit beta-glucuronidase, thereby promoting detoxification and allowing toxins to be effectively neutralized and eliminated from the body before they can do significant damage.
Bifidobacterium ongum (BB-536)
This highly beneficial probiotic has been shown to promote detoxification in the colon and to help prevent certain types of cancers. This healthy bacteria helps to enhance the immune system, suppress the growth of harmful bacteria that secrete toxic substances, and to bind to and eliminate potential carcinogens. Like D-glucarate, BB-536 also acts to reduce beta-glucuronidase activity in the colon, thereby preventing the reactivation of dangerous compounds.
BB-536 is especially effective for the elimination of heterocyclic amines. These dangerous compounds are formed when meat is broiled or charred, are readily present in the human diet and have been shown to induce tumor formation in rats. BB-536 dramatically reduces heterocyclic amine induced tumor formation in the colon, small intestine and liver of rats. It has been suggested that BB-536 binds to heterocyclic amines, and also works through other indirect methods to prevent these compounds from causing DNA damage in the colon.
