Sulfur is necessary for converting toxins into non-toxins. It is found in the amino acids cysteine and methionine, as well as in cells, hemoglobin (blood), collagen (tissue), keratin (skin), insulin, heparin, biotin, and co-enzyme A (required for healthy hair, skin, nails, among many other biological structures). It is also required for the adequate digestion and absorption of carbohydrates and a number of vitamins, such as thiamin, biotin, and pantothenic acid.
Chlorine is necessary to maintain the correct balance between acids and bases in the body, also known as the pH (alkaline vs acidity).
Iodine plays an integral role in the production of the hormone thyroxin, and is also vital for both energy and cell metabolism.
Potassium is necessary to maintain the water balance in order for cell metabolism to take place, assisting the cells to absorb nutrients while expelling waste products. An imbalance in potassium often leads to water retention. Potassium also plays a vital role in regulating muscle contractions and nervous system conduction.
Sodium, like potassium, plays a vital role in assisting the cells to absorb nutrients and expelling waste products (toxins).
Calcium is necessary in strengthening cell membranes and cleansing the pores. In addition, it is vital for production and maintenance of healthy teeth and bones, together with regulating the heart muscles and nerves.
