This interview is an absolute gem with my friend, Dr. Russell Jaffe, who is a true authority in the field. He’s renowned as the brilliant mind behind the ELISA test for heavy metal sensitivities and has an extensive range of fantastic detoxification supplements. Dr. Jaffe is a featured speaker in my upcoming Heavy Docuseries, set to launch on Valentine’s Day in 2024. He also just released a remarkable new book, “How to Thrive in the 21st Century,” which delves into the world of nutrition and optimizing it for detoxification.
In today’s podcast, we’re diving deep into various topics, from the significance of vitamin C to essential nutrients like magnesium, the top five daily detox foods, and the importance of choline in enhancing magnesium’s effects. Dr. Jaffe will enlighten us on how tripling your magnesium intake can revolutionize detox, while benefiting your brain, heart, digestion, and metabolism.
We’ll also explore how the presence of heavy metals in your body leads to free radicals, diminishing your antioxidant defenses and hastening the aging process. This, in turn, slows down your metabolism, making it easier to gain weight. There’s an abundance of valuable insights in this episode, and I can’t wait to share it all with you.
On Today’s Podcast, You’ll Learn:
- Why natural vitamin C is as important as light and oxygen to cells. Ascorbic acid, or synthetic vitamin C, creates more free radicals the body has to fight with more antioxidants.
- If you don’t have enough natural vitamin C, you are more vulnerable to toxins, infections, parasites, hormone disruption, mood disorders, neurochemical disorders, etc.
- If magnesium in the body is low, the body absorbs more toxic heavy metals.
- The top 5 detox foods to eat in your diet every day.
- Unless you take choline citrate, only one third of magnesium you take gets into the cells.
- Tripling your intake of magnesium improves detox, brain, heart, digestion and metabolism.
- Heavy metals in the body cause free radicals, which cause antioxidant deficiencies. As a result, your metabolism goes down as the toxins build up. This is the recipe for aging!
- Natural vitamin C is one of the only substances that can repair mitochondria to restore energy production.
