Detox and Beauty

Post #2 in my metal detox mini-series

If you missed post one, please click here to catch up!

Today's post is going to be focusing on another similar way to detox aluminum. Before we jump into that, it bears mentioning that not every supplement works for every person. Additionally, I am not a big believer in "blanket supplements".

What does that mean? It means that I believe you should be working 1:1 with a holistic healthcare provider. That may look like any of the following:

  • health coach

  • nutritionist (not dietician, but a nutritionist and no they are not the same thing)

  • possibly a homeopath (not all are created equal)

  • ND or traditional naturopath

  • a cross-trained chiropractor

  • or the super elusive truly holistic MD

Now that we have that out of the way, let's get to it!

Tucked inside a beauty supplement touted for improving hair, skin, and nails is an ingredient known to bind to aluminum. This one single ingredient takes this beauty supplement out of the plethora of other beauty supplements and puts it into one of my most recommended products. That ingredient is orthosilicic acid.

Orthocilicic acid is a bioavailable form of silica - fancy speak for your body can absorb it. Silica tightly binds to aluminum which enables our body to then toss it out like yesterday's garbage... because it is!

Again, blanket supplements really are not my thing. You really do need a 1:1 approach with a holistic healthcare practitioner who can speak to the needs of your body, what you may be more likely to be impacted by, and how to best support your body to maintain homeostasis and win that battle. That said, most people do indeed have an overabundance of aluminum in their bodies that really needs to get expelled. For most people in search of an easy-to-use product that can help remove this unwanted metal from their body, this is a great place to start.* This would be what people mean when they talk about doing a metal detox.

Metal detoxing is a normal process that the body regularly does on its own. When our bodies collect too much heavy metal for us to safely detox at one time then it will store said metals in places the body deems as being "safe". This can look like the inability to burn "stubborn" body fat. Fat cells are a relatively safe place for the body to store toxins that it is unable to process and excrete.

And so, that brings us to the product. For this specific issue, I recommend Collagen Generator, formerly BioSil Hair, Skin, Nail. It is marketed for hair, skin, and nails so you will be getting that extra boost there. It is also going to bind to those pesky aluminum nanoparticles that are going to want to settle into your tissues. You can get this product via my dispensary here. You will need to sign-up for it but then you can order what you need. As a bonus, I do offer a discount on any products in my dispensary and they are all practitioner-grade products that have been 3rd party tested.
