Why lngredients Are Important
The skin is a living, dynamic and unpredictable organ, as well as the largest functioning organ
of the body. Our skin protects us by preventing bacteria, germs and pollutants from entering the blood stream. Everything we put on our skin is absorbed and goes through every vital organ.
Our skin breathes out waste and toxins as well as taking in oxygen, moisture and nutrients.
Metals can be acutely or chronically toxic. Chronic toxicity is much more difficult to diagnose. In chronic toxicity, a person is exposed to small doses over a long period of time. Symptoms may not develop for months to years. Acute toxicity symptoms may be different from those of chronic toxicity. For example, acute inorganic mercury toxicity may cause nausea, headache, diarrhea, and abdominal pain, while chronic inorganic mercury toxicity causes difficulty in swallowing; abnormal vision, hearing, taste, and smell; and poor coordination in the arms and legs and learning disabilities and allows disease to take over the body by breaking it down. It also is one
of the main causes of autism and asperger's syndrome and ADD.
Metals inhibit the activity of many enzymes and they can bind to vitamins. Toxic metals may displace essential metals. They tend to accumulate in target organs, and when the level exceeds the threshold level for that organ, symptoms result. Many of the organs affected are those that are normally involved in the detoxification procedures to eliminate the metal from the body, including the kidney, the gastrointestinal tract, and the liver. Metals are often toxic to the organs that cannot detoxify them.
