Phase One: Enzymes and oxygen are used to partially break down toxins in order to make them water-soluble for easier removal.

Phase Two: The processed toxins are combined with amino acids to prepare them for safe removal via watery fluids like bile and urine.
Our liver isn’t only impacted by what we eat. We must also consider what we breathe and put on our skin.
Phase one actually makes toxins more volatile and free radicals that are produced can damage the liver cells, if the burden is too high. I have a gene variation (email me if interested in DNA testing) and I’ve learned I need to support my liver due to Phase 1 not working as efficiently as it could.
It’s true, however we can support it by helping it work more efficiently by focusing on the detoxification pathways.
The liver one of my favourite organs because it has so many functions, about 500! I love supporting it because I see changes in so many other areas of the body. Our current diet of processed foods, sugar and high alcohol intake are all toxins to our liver which causes congestion. Picture a bucket with toxins and old hormones the liver needs to filter, picture it so full that it is now spilling over and now it’s hanging around in the body versus being excreted.
