In times of great stress or after consistent bad dietary choices, the body builds up a reservoir of toxic metabolites (products of metabolic reactions). These metabolites can cause tissue damage and inflammation which lead to a variety of health defects. Lee Haney Nutrition 7 Day Detox is a dietary supplement which contains ingredients that are designed to redistribute or eliminate these metabolites. In this review, we assess the overall ability of the product as a detox supplement.
One of the ingredients which sticks out about this product is the bentonite clay. Bentonite clay has been shown scientifically to enhance the effect of certain enzymes like aspartate transaminase, gamma-glutamyl transferase and alkaline phosphatase. The first two enzymes are majorly involved with enhancing protein breakdown for energy and the final enzyme is involved in compound detoxification.
This supplement contains a variety of antioxidants. Antioxidants remove toxic chemicals known as free radicals from the body. Free radicals cause major cellular damage and inflammation otherwise. Antioxidants present in the supplement are in the form of flaxseed oil, oat bran and black walnut hull. A variety of omega acids have been included to mitigate the inflammation and cell damage caused by free radicals.
