Detoxification is a natural process inherent to the human body, but over time, our body’s natural detoxification process becomes less effective as we collect a variety of toxins, allergies and infections.
On a continuous basis, the body must work to eliminate toxic substances that are taken in. If intake exceeds removal, the toxins accumulate within the tissues and cells.
Detoxification is the process by which the body eliminates substances that are both endogenous (such as hormones) and exogenous (such as medications, pollutants, metals, and other substances).
In addition to cleaning up the diet and eliminating sources of toxicity, the use of chelating substances, antioxidant support, and therapeutic sweating are often the mainstays of detoxification protocols.
However, these basic strategies, despite being crucial, lack consideration for other factors such as recirculation of toxic substances that significantly impair the body’s ability to detoxify.
With an impaired detoxification process, people run the risk of:
- Decreased response to toxin transporters
- Under expression of cellular antioxidants
- Systemic toxicity and oxidative stress
- Increased susceptibility to chronic disease
Detoxification is essential for proper health, but improperly designed protocols can result in toxin redistribution not elimination. In an effort to combat this, Quicksilver Scientific created the PushCatch™ LiverDetox, a versatile two-step detoxification protocol designed to support elimination of toxins while minimizing their redistribution and reabsorption. It’s a simple, accessible and effective liver detox with long-lasting health results.
The powerful formulation and delivery chemistry used in this detoxification protocol derives from Dr. Shade’s extensive research into detoxification pathways. His specialized “push and catch” system pushes toxins with a liposomal blend of bitters buttressed by powerful detoxifying nutraceuticals. The catch captures toxins in the gut with a broad-spectrum constellation of binders that are blended with uniquely soothing prebiotic fibers. The toxins can then be safely eliminated by the body. This “Push Catch” system is highly flexible and can be used as a gentle, daily standalone detox, or as an intensive program.
The PushCatch LiverDetox integrates two unique products:
Liver Sauce (PUSH)
This is the ‘push’–a proprietary blend of botanicals with potent bitter, drainage and detoxification capability, along with specially chosen phytonutrients that promote our own powerful endogenous antioxidant defenses.
The liposomal “bitter” quartet includes dandelion, solidago, gentian and myrrh which stimulates digestion, boosts liver, gallbladder and kidney function, promotes healthy bile flow, and offers broad microbial balancing action.
This “bitter” boost keeps drainage pathways open, while a blend of powerful targeted nutraceuticals offers detoxification, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and histamine-controlling support.
The liposomes in this formula contain pure phosphatidylcholine, an essential component of bile that encourages cellular health, function, and repair.
Dr. Shade’s LiverSauce is a premier liver support combination that simultaneously supports all phases of detoxification and toxin elimination.
This is the ‘catch’ – a universal blend of synergistic binders that capture toxins in the GI tract, including mycotoxins, cyanotoxins, pesticides, herbicides, endotoxins, endocrine disrupters, inflammatory molecules, toxins found in bile, and heavy metals including mercury.
The formula includes bentonite clay, activated charcoal, chitosan, and IMD (Intestinal Metals Detox, our proprietary thiol-functionalized silica compound with specific affinity for mercury). Acacia gum, a prebiotic fiber, is added for its soothing, fluidizing, healing effect, and aloe vera soothes the gastric mucosa and reduces constipation.
Because binders act locally in the gastrointestinal tract, they allow tissue-bound toxins such as metals to safely drain into the blood at a natural rate. This contrasts with many blood metal chelating agents, which may increase circulatory levels of metals and place a greater burden on the kidneys and liver in the process of elimination.
Completing the process of detoxification requires intestinal binders because many toxins are reabsorbed after excretion into the bile. This comprehensive, broad- spectrum binder works across the gut to intercept and neutralize an array of toxins, removing them from the body.
In order to appropriately time the flushing of toxins with a gastrointestinal binder to properly bind and eliminate them, a nutritional delivery system with rapid uptake and cellular delivery is necessary. Liposomal delivery systems pose a feasible solution, as appropriately designed lipid-based vesicles have the potential for rapid uptake into circulation and greatly increased cellular delivery. With a liposomal delivery system, it is possible to supplement nutraceuticals to support detoxification phases and stimulate bile flow (the “push”) and then, within 30 minutes, follow with solid-phase toxin binders (the “catch”).
Quicksilver Deliver Systems utilizes a unique liposomal delivery, which features small and stable liposomes made from the highest quality ingredients available and provide a way for supplements to pass between mucosal cells and enter the bloodstream directly. These small liposomes begin absorbing as soon as they hit your mouth, so you can get high absorption before they are altered by the harsh processes in the intestines. Quicksilver liposomes are clear, not milky or separated, and are made in single-layer spheres for optimal bioavailability. At their highest expression, liposomes bring the power of intravenous therapy into a convenient oral delivery.
