As a Naturopathic Doctor I am always searching for pathways to healing for myself and my patients. In all my years and travels around the globe, I have found that there are two basic pillars required to successfully turn a hopeful health goal into a reality:
- A good plan, which serves as a map and provides structure.
- An understanding that your body is nourished by your kindness and devotion to its feedback by you.
Annually I like to change up my detox based upon what I have found during that year, to be the most affective and most gentle approach while achieving optimum solutions. After much exploration in 2020, I discovered this particular plan by Orthomolecular labs known as Core Restore®. One of the many benefits is that it’s simple! It’s a strategic plan that provides three active formulas–Core Support®, Alpha Base®, and PhytoCore®—that function synergistically to support Phase I and Phase II pathways of liver detoxification to help neutralize environmental pollutants, hormone disruptors, unhealthy estrogen metabolites, xenoestrogens (synthetic compounds that imitate estrogen), and other harmful toxins. Basically, for anyone suffering from PMS, fibroids, perimenopause, menopause, PCOS or any hormone imbalances for that matter, it’s a wonderful kick start as well as for anyone else!
What’s Included in Core Restore®
1. Core Support®
Core Support® powder enhances Phase II detoxification by providing clean protein, gentle fiber, and specific nutrients which help eliminate toxins during the seven-day detoxification program. Core Support® provides nutrients needed for Phase II detox including N-acetyl cysteine, glycine, taurine, lipoic acid, green tea extract, ellagic acid, and a unique blend of vegetable phytonutrients. The antioxidant activity of this unique blend of nutrients is protective against cell damage by free radicals and helps induce Phase II enzymes which facilitate the removal of toxins from the body and scavenge free radicals.
2. Phyto Core®
PhytoCore® is added on the third day of the Core Restore® program to stimulate Phase I activity once Phase II has been established. The specialized blend of nutrients in PhytoCore has been shown to stimulate Phase I and II biotransformation and support the body’s natural liver cleansing function during detoxification. Each capsule includes silymarin, artichoke extract, curcumin, methionine, choline, inositol, garlic, and dandelion root. These botanicals and plant extracts include phytonutrients, antioxidants and other compounds that protect plants from environmental challenges including exposure to radiation and toxins, and defend your body against them.
3. Alpha Base®
Alpha Base® provides a multi-nutrient foundation to ensure the liver has adequate amounts of important trace minerals and vitamins needed for the energy/nutrient intensive process of detoxification. Nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and the B vitamins are required for cytochrome P450 activity. In addition to vitamins and trace minerals, carotenoids are included to help scavenge free radicals and protect cells while toxins are removed.
This powerful trio of specialized formulas provides essential micronutrients, phytonutrients, and a source of easily digested, low- allergen protein that help to purify the liver. We all want vibrant bodies, loads of energy, and a clear mind. Because many of us are lacking in vital minerals, nutrients, phytonutrients, and healthy fats, the Core Restore Program® emphasizes nutrient-dense shakes to help rebuild your body while you cleanse. These nutrients will help build your mineral reserves, support liver detoxification, and maintain consistent energy while eliminating harmful toxins.
