What is Metabolic Detox® Complete?
Metabolic Detox® Complete (MDC) is a great tasting, high-protein (20 g/serv.) powder supplement designed for detoxification programs, elimination diets, or as a daily shake. As an excellent meal replacement and nutritional supplement, MDC contains non-GMO hypoallergenic pea, rice, and hemp proteins, as well as medium-chain triglycerides, omega-3 fatty acids from flax, prebiotic inulin, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and nutritional cofactors. As a detox aid, MDC has been designed to support and bolster both Phase I and Phase II of the body’s natural detoxification system.
How does Metabolic Detox® Complete Work?
MDC supports Phase I and Phase II detoxification. Phase I involves enzymatic modification or breakdown of toxins into compounds that can be eliminated in Phase II. Since these compounds include free-radicals that can cause cellular damage, Phase I must both supported and controlled, so it does not out-pace Phase II. During Phase II, Phase I metabolites will be conjugated so they can be eliminated in urine or bile.
The Phase I enzyme cofactors selected for the MDC formula include folate, niacinamide, B-6, B-12, zinc, magnesium, selenium, and copper [1,2]. Nutrients that control Phase I end-products include antioxidant vitamins C, E, A, green tea, silymarin (from milk thistle), and NAC [1-3].
Phase II conjugation falls into six categories and each requires nutrient support. Acetylation of organic compounds containing nitrogen is supported by pantothenic acid, thiamine, and vitamin C. Amino acid conjugation is supported by glycine, glutamine, and taurine. Glucuronidation, which neutralizes numerous drugs, hormones, and pollutants, is supported by calcium d-glucarate. Glutathione conjugation of free-radicals is supported by NAC, vitamin C, and silymarin. Methylation, a process necessary for the metabolism of neurotransmitters and detoxification of synthetic compounds and many pharmaceuticals, is supported by B-6, methionine, B-12 (as methylcobalamin), folate (as methylfolate), and choline.
Sulfation, which helps eliminate toxic compounds such as acetaminophen, food additives, and heavy metals, is supported by methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), taurine, methionine, and NAC [1-3].
In terms of its diverse qualities as a meal replacement, MDC is rich in plant-based protein, fiber, beneficial fats, and complex carbohydrates. Because it contains no major allergens, MDC can be used as part of an elimination diet protocol to restore gastrointestinal health.
