Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I take Toxaprevent?
You should take the Toxaprevent Digestive range to help prevent, treat and alleviate digestive conditions including heartburn (acid reflux), food intolerances, IBS and bloating by eliminating toxins from your digestive tract, whilst relieving your liver. These toxins include histamine, heavy metals (lead and mercury) and ammonium, all of which have an effect on your health. By removing these substances, Toxaprevent helps to detoxify your gut and relieve your liver, thereby helping to maintain your health daily. In addition, the skin can also benefit. Absorbing and removing toxic substances from the digestive tract improves the absorption of minerals and vital substances, supporting the body’s daily internal cleansing which can aid in the prevention of skin problems.
The Toxaprevent Skin range can be used to prevent, treat and alleviate skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis and acne. This is done by binding and removing histamine, heavy metals (lead and mercury) and other toxins on and beneath the surface of the skin. This reduces the inflammation and promotes faster wound healing.
When should I use Toxaprevent?
Toxaprevent PLUS SachetsThe liver is most active during the night, so one sachet of Toxaprevent PLUS taken before bed is ideal to relieve the liver before it starts working hardest. One sachet in the morning can also be taken to boost the detoxifying effects of Toxaprevent.
Toxaprevent PURE Capsules1 - 2 capsules should be taken before each main meal to eliminate toxins, including histamine, contained in food and those already in the intestines such as ammonium.
Toxaprevent SKIN PowderThe SKIN Powder is suitable to be used several (3- 4) times a day. The Powder should be applied immediately after being bitten/stung by insects to help prevent the histamine reaction which usually follows, and on open wounds once they have stopped bleeding to promote faster healing.
Toxaprevent SKIN SalveThe SKIN Salve can be used up to twice a day. Apply once in the morning, and one at night, before going to bed, to absorb and remove histamine and toxic substances from the surface of the skin.
Toxaprevent SKIN SuspensionThe SKIN Suspension can be used up to twice a day and for a maximum of 2 hours per application. Apply once in the morning, and once at night, before going to bed, to absorb and remove histamine and toxic substances on and beneath the skin surface.
How do I use Toxaprevent?
Toxaprevent PLUS SachetsMix the contents of one sachet with 300ml of water and drink. To ensure the powder does not settle at the bottom of the glass, stir the mixture immediately before drinking.
Toxaprevent PURE CapsulesTake 1 – 2 capsules with 200ml of water before each main meal.
Toxaprevent SKIN PowderThe powder comes in a sprinkler for easy application and can be used on closed skin as well as open wounds once bleeding has stopped. Simply sprinkle onto closed skin and rub in several times daily. Sprinkle directly onto open wounds and cover with sterile dressing material if necessary. Wash off the skin powder before reapplying.
Toxaprevent SKIN SalveThe salve can be applied like a conventional skin cream up to twice a day directly to the skin, ideally once in the morning and once at night. Apply a thin layer to the affected area to absorb and remove toxic substances including histamine and reduce inflammations.
Toxaprevent SKIN SuspensionApply the suspension to the affected area directly from the tube. Smear the suspension into a thick layer (roughly 2mm thick) over the affected area. Cover with the medical foil provided and leave for a maximum of 2 hours. This can be done up to twice a day, ideally once in the morning and once before going to bed.
Will Toxaprevent have any side-effects?
Toxaprevent has no direct side effects because it is not absorbed by the body and does not react with the body.
How will I know that Toxaprevent is working?
There are many ways to know whether or not Toxaprevent is working. It has a wide range of uses due to the way it works and the benefits can vary from one person to another. The benefits which are usually seen are improvements in digestive issues such as food intolerances, acid reflux (heartburn), IBS and bloating, and improvements in skin issues such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and inflamed skin. Toxaprevent relieves the liver, reducing the toxic burden it must deal with. As a result, the body is more responsive to medical treatments and natural remedies and overall has more energy. Toxaprevent is scientifically backed, so even if any of these effects aren’t felt, rest assured that Toxaprevent is still absorbing toxins which are continuously created by the body, e.g. ammonium, using a process called ion exchange.
Will Toxaprevent interact with other medication?
Toxaprevent may interact with other medications. Please leave one hour between taking medications and the Toxaprevent Digestive range. According to current medical knowledge, the absorption of pharmaceutical agents can be considered complete after one hour. After applying medicated creams, salves, etc., wait at least 60 minutes before applying products in the Toxaprevent Skin range. In cases of doubt, consult your doctor or health practitioner about using Toxaprevent with other medications. Due to the high absorption capacity of the active ingredient MANC, the possibility exists that other drugs/medications taken in parallel with Toxaprevent may be, to some extent, bound and removed. This is why it is advised to leave an hour gap between using medications and Toxaprevent.
Will Toxaprevent make me constipated?
The Toxaprevent Digestive range uses water to help it travel through the digestive tract. Toxaprevent will not make you constipated as long as you have it with at least the amount of water recommended (300ml for each sachet and 200ml for 1-2 capsules).
How long should I take Toxaprevent?
Toxaprevent is designed for daily use and can be taken continuously as directed. However, we understand that this doesn’t suit everyone. If you can’t commit to one sachet a day continuously, a month’s course every 2 – 3 months might be more ideal for you.
When is the best time of year to detox?
The body is constantly detoxifying itself through the liver, kidneys and even the skin so there is no ‘best’ time to detox. We suggest an all year-round detox is best to help the body in it’s daily cleansing, particularly since the organs used for detoxification are often at full capacity. Taking Toxaprevent daily will detoxify the digestive tract and relieve the liver and kidneys of their toxic load, so they do not have to deal with the toxins removed by Toxaprevent. This allows them to work more effectively on what they are dealing with, gaining enormous capacities as basic metabolic organs.
Should I take the Toxaprevent sachets or the capsules?
Deciding whether to use the capsules or the sachets depends on which area of the digestive tract you want to target. The sachets are specifically targeted for the mouth, throat and stomach because they start working straight away once they are in the mouth. They will still work in the small intestine and colon, however they will have already absorbed toxins before they reach this area of the digestive tract. To administer a more concentrated dose of Toxaprevent to the small intestine and colon, the capsules are recommended. This is because the capsules by-pass the stomach with a delayed release, and open once they are in the intestines. Both the sachets and the capsules can be taken with each other, at the same time, to target the entire digestive tract.
How does Toxaprevent work?
The active ingredient in Toxaprevent is called MANC® (Modified and Activated Natural Clinoptilolite). MANC® is negatively charged and works like a sponge. It's negative charge allows it to naturally absorb toxic substances such as histamine, ammonium and heavy metals (lead and mercury), all of which can contribute to ill health. These toxins can be stored in “cages” which run through the clinoptilolite particles. Because the particle size of MANC® is too large to be absorbed into the bloodstream, it stays in the digestive tract. This is where it absorbs toxic substances. It is then gently and safely removed with the toxic substances from the digestive tract alongside natural bowel movements. This means your body doesn’t have to process MANC® or any toxins MANC® has captured. The Toxaprevent Skin range also uses MANC® as the active ingredient and is not absorbed into the body through the skin due to it's large particle size. So, any toxins which MANC® captures on the skin are also prevented from entering the body through the skin. Any histamine which is absorbed on the skin is rendered harmless, helping to prevent inflammation and reduce existing inflammations.
Why does the body produce ammonium?
Ammonium is a natural by-product of protein digestion which is broken down by the liver and excreted. Maintaining the correct level of ammonium is important as it helps to optimise liver function and balance acidity levels in the body.
Why is it important to have the correct level of ammonium in the body?
Many illnesses caused by high ammonium levels in the body are chronic and untreatable, so the safest way to protect your liver is to avoid damage to the organ. Limit alcohol intake, which is one of the primary causes of liver damage and leads to high ammonium levels in the body.
Although ammonium is essential to life, too much can cause problems in the liver. Too much ammonium in the blood is dangerous and when this happens, it becomes neurotoxic (toxic to the nervous system).
What is histamine?
Histamine occurs naturally in the body. In the event of an allergic reaction it is one of the chemicals released which causes symptoms or allergic reactions such as itching, sneezing, wheezing as well as running noses and eyes. Reducing the histamine load naturally will alleviate these allergic symptoms helping those with the following conditions:
- Food intolerance (leaky gut syndrome)
- Crohn’s disease
Should I continue taking anti-histamines as well as Toxaprevent?
Yes, as long you leave at least one hour between taking the anti-histamines and Toxaprevent. The two will work well together as Toxaprevent will absorb and eliminate histamine in the digestive tract, while the anti-histamines will help control histamine levels in the rest of the body.
