Top 3 Detoxifiers That Also Boost Immunity

If you want a strong immune system, you have to detox every day. 

We are exposed to more pollution than any generation in this planet’s history. There are toxins in the air you breathe, the water you drink, the food you eat, and the products you use[1]. 

Normally, your liver works hard to protect you from toxins and keep you healthy. 

But in today’s toxic world, your liver gets overwhelmed by the daily grind of removing pollutants from your body. 

And when your liver slows down, your immune system begins to take a hit. You get sick more often, you recover more slowly, and you’re far more susceptible to viruses like the cold and flu. 

Learn how to boost immunity with 3 key nutrients in this article!

Why You Need to Detox Daily for a Strong Immune System

The Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit committed to reducing environmental pollutant use, estimates that there are more than 100,000 chemicals used commercially, and that most of them don’t have current safety testing. 

You’re exposed to a lot of those toxins every day[1]. Sources include:

  • Heavy metals in tap water and air pollution (especially in cities)
  • Pesticide and herbicide residues in the food you eat
  • Indoor air pollutants from building materials, off-gassing, and dust
  • Hormone disruptors in personal care products
  • Toxic food additives that build up in your body, like artificial sweeteners and some preservatives
  • Persistent environmental pollutants like DDT that don’t break down for decades
  • Carcinogens in air, water, and food

Your body is constantly barraged by these toxins, and your liver has to work around the clock to sequester them and flush them out of your system. 

But in today’s pollutant-heavy world, your liver can’t keep up. And when it becomes overwhelmed, your immunity suffers. 

Your liver is an essential part of your immune system[2], and when it slows down, you become more susceptible to viruses, bacteria, and other infections.

During times when you’re at high risk of getting sick — like cold and flu season, or when the people around you are ill — it’s especially important that you detox every day. You need to support your body so it has the resources to fight off infection, instead of getting overwhelmed by toxic load. 

The trouble is that you aren’t going to do a liver cleanse or full-on heavy metal detox protocol every day. You need something you can take on a daily basis, to help you flush out the constant toxins in your environment. 

That’s why I designed Daily Detox. It’s an organic superfood formula loaded with nutrients for optimal liver function, whole-body detoxification, and immune system support. It’s perfect for daily use — you just take a scoop of it each morning and it goes to work, supporting your wellbeing and immunity. 

Here’s a look at three of the best detoxifiers in Daily Detox, and how they support your immune system to keep you feeling great. 

1. Fermented Broccoli Sprouts to Detox Mercury

Heavy metals in general are devastating to your immune system[3], and mercury is particularly bad. 

Mercury suppresses your immune response[4][5], leaving you more susceptible to infection from viruses and other pathogens. 

You’re especially at risk for mercury toxicity if you:

  • Eat fish or shellfish on a regular basis (many fish, including tuna, are high in mercury)
  • Have had or currently have mercury amalgam dental fillings
  • Are in a place with lots of smog, like a city

And because mercury is constantly in your environment in low concentrations, it’s essential that you detox it every day. 

That’s why Daily Detox contains fermented broccoli sprouts. They’re one of the best sources of sulforaphane, a powerful detoxifier that’s especially good against mercury. 

Sulforaphane protects brain cells from mercury-induced damage[6] and reduces daily mercury buildup by turning on pathways that flush out mercury[7]. 

The broccoli sprouts in Daily Detox help your body get rid of toxic mercury and support a strong immune system.

2. Milk Thistle for Liver Support and Immunity

Your liver is an essential part of your immune system. To quote a 2018 study[8]:

“The liver is a key, frontline immune tissue…[It] appears designed to detect, capture, and clear bacteria, viruses, and macromolecules.”

When your liver is in good shape, it fights off pathogens and clears your body of toxins, keeping your immune system strong. 

But a build-up of toxic substances can overwhelm your liver, leaving you more susceptible to illness and infection. 

And because our modern environment is so toxic, your liver needs a little extra help to keep up with toxins. 

Daily Detox is formulated to provide that extra detox and immune support. It contains milk thistle, an herb that has been used for decades by both traditional medicine doctors and physicians for liver function[9]. 

Milk thistle contains silymarin and silybin, two phytonutrients that protect your liver cells and boost immunity.

  • Silymarin and silybin are strong antioxidants that protect your liver cells from toxin-related damage[10]. When you take milk thistle, these antioxidants guard against toxin overwhelm, so your liver can keep working the way it should — protecting you from viruses and bacteria and breaking down pollutants before they can build up in your body. 
  • Silymarin increases glutathione production in your liver, giving it more capacity to fight off infection, deactivate toxins, and keep you healthy[11]. 
  • Silybin helps liver cells recover from injury after toxin-related stress[12]. If your liver is overwhelmed, silybin (in milk thistle) can help it recover and get back into good shape, so it can keep your detox system and immune system strong. 

The milk thistle in Daily Detox helps your liver keep up with everyday toxins. When your liver is strong, your immune system is strong — protecting you from viruses and pathogens.  

3. Fermented Turmeric Rhizome for Extra Detox and Immune Support

People around the world have taken turmeric for hundreds of years, both as an immune booster and as a detoxifier. 

Turmeric rhizome (the underground part of the turmeric plant) is rich in curcumin, a whole-body antioxidant that’s an indispensable part of any detox or immune protocol. 

  • Curcumin helps detox mercury, a heavy metal that suppresses your immune system[13].
  • It also protects liver cells from damage, while simultaneously boosting their ability to remove toxins and protect you from pathogens[14][15][16].
  • Curcumin directly improves immune function, supporting your ability to fight off illness[17][18].

Turmeric protects you from toxins, helps you detox faster, and boosts your immunity, all at the same time. It’s the gold standard for detoxification and immune function. 

Daily Detox contains fermented turmeric, which is one of the best ways you can take turmeric. Fermentation makes the curcumin in turmeric easier to absorb and increases its protective effects[19][20]. 

Daily Detox: Clear Toxins and Support Your Immune System
