Liver Detoxification Nutrients

If you get a cringe or have your suspicion raised when hearing anything about “detox” or “detoxification,” you’re not alone.

There is plenty of pseudo-scientific claims, diets, programs, products, and so on in the healthcare industry promoting some form of paid detoxification solution.

Truth be told: you don’t need to pay for anything except for food.

Our goal is to boost liver detoxification by:

  1. Minimizing phase 1 inhibitors, and
  2. Maximizing phase 2 boosters.

For your information, promoting liver function is not absolutely critical in reversing eczema but it will speed up the recovery process and alleviate your eczema outbreaks.
