Detox is used to medically remove the toxic elements from human body. It supports body's natural defenses. It is a nutritional supplement that helps our body to defense against pollution or heavy metals that we face every day in our life.

vitamins, the omega-3 oils, GLA (gamma linolenic acid), and a diet rich in deeply colored vegetables and some fruits.
