While small amounts of some heavy metals such as zinc and iron are crucial for optimal health, ingesting too many heavy metals through industrial, environmental, and food sources can cause our bodies to react negatively. The type of metal to which we are overexposed—be it lead, cadmium, or mercury—decides which symptoms we experience. Nausea, headaches, diarrhea, abdominal pain and cramping could potentially grow to more severe symptoms such as brain fog, visual disturbances, insomnia and even paralysis.
One of the most commonly known toxins is lead. Sources include fertilizers, factory chimneys, car exhaust, pesticides, and battery waste. Lead can harm the reproductive organs, gastrointestinal tract, brain, and blood system. But there are ways to limit exposure to such pollutants. More on that later.
First, here are some foods/beverages that can help protect against the effects of heavy metals:
- Wild blueberries
- Lemon water
- Green tea
However, many of your soon-to-be customers are deficient in the very nutrients needed to combat heavy-metal destruction. Some of those nutrients include vitamins B-1, B-6, and C. For people who do not consume sufficient amounts of vitamins and have copious amounts of heavy metals in their systems could be candidates for a heavy metal detox. A great resource for detoxing? Dietary supplements. More specifically, your private label detox supplements.
To Get the Ball Rolling
Your detox product could include some of the above ingredients, as well as chlorella and fiber:
- Chlorella has been shown to aid in the detoxification of mercury
- Dietary fiber, rich in fruits and grain with bran, may help remove heavy metals, along with mercury.
Creating a detox supplement with promising ingredients could help prevent harmful effects, while promoting overall health and wellbeing. Your customers are looking for a product they can trust, and Makers Nutrition is the supplement manufacturing service provider YOU can trust.
