Toxins and pollutants may be damaging every organ in our body!
We are exposed to pollutants from as early as in the womb. They are virtually everywhere in modern life, even in your cleaning and beauty products. But thankfully with a little know how you can avoid these very effectively. However, then you have airborne pollutants from chemtrails and car fumes which are very hard, if not impossible, to avoid. Toxins such as hydrogen chloride, benzene or toluene, dioxin, or compounds like asbestos, and heavy metals such as cadmium, mercury, and chromium enter your body through inhalation. They become deposited in the airways and absorbed into the bloodstream via the lungs, then are carried to the rest of the body where they accumulate in the heart, brain, kidneys, liver and your bones, impeding their normal biological function.
Heavy metals and toxins can cause very unpleasant symptoms like diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting and shortness of breath and illnesses including stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, and chronic respiratory diseases.
We can eradicate toxins from inside our homes, but what can we do to stop the airborne pollutants?
You could avoid areas which have heavy traffic
Don't burn rubbish as this is among the highest sources of particle pollution.
Don't use petrol powered tools, electric is cleaner
Avoid exercising outdoor when pollution levels are high.
This all sounds a bit restricting to deal with day to day, especially as most of us have been confined to our homes for over a year.
So how can we combat this damage to our body?
One simple thing we can all do is to take N-acetyl -L-cysteine (NAC). NAC is a supplement which can help to detoxify these heavy metals and toxins from our body.
What exactly is N-acetyl -L-cysteine (NAC)?
NAC is a derivative of the amino acid L-cysteine, one of the amino acids used as building blocks for protein in the body. It is the supplement form of cysteine. NAC is a semi-essential amino acid, because your body can produce it from other amino acids. Although due to poor dietary choices people are often lacking in NAC, so would benefit from taking a NAC supplement.
Making sure you get enough NAC is very important for your health for many reasons. One of it's main benefits is that it helps replenish glutathione in your body. Glutathione is our body's natural antioxidant removing toxins from the body.
What are the other benefits of NAC?
As well as detoxing your liver and kidneys of pollutants and heavy metals it has many other health benefits:
It can improve and strengthen lung function and reduce coughing and wheezing for people suffering with bronchitis and conditions such as COPD.
