You don’t know how mold can enter your home. Is it the warm weather? Is it the humidity? The fact is, when you have toxic mold (mycotoxins) at home, it can be a great source of stress for you and your family, and mold exposure can definitely be a threat to the health of your loved ones. 

    After having your house cleaned off all the mold, the next step to take is to detoxify your body from it. In this article, you will learn how you can say goodbye to mold without harming your body. Read more below: 

    Modified Citrus Pectin

    Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) is a natural supplement that comes from fruits like apples, pears, gooseberries, oranges, or other citrus fruits. Although it is still considered experimental, current studies show that it may help prevent cancer from spreading throughout your body (metastasis). It is also being studied on its detoxification effects for heavy metal toxicity and other toxic substances in the body. 

    Unlike normal pectin which cannot be absorbed by the body, modified pectin gets absorbed immediately in the gut and can be beneficial to your health. Another—if not the best health benefit of MCP is that it can relieve inflammation. So all the colds and allergy-like symptoms? Gone! Just take this supplement as advised by your physician and get started with your detox. 

    Activated Charcoal

    Activated charcoal is a black powder that comes from various materials like bone char, coconut shells, coal, olive pits, and even sawdust. Mainly used for first-aid in poisoning cases, it prevents toxic substances from being absorbed by the body by trapping them in the gut. 

    Studies in pigs show that activated charcoal, like bentonite clay and zeolite, is an excellent way to prevent your body from absorbing mycotoxins (mold) and can be an excellent supplement to use when you plan to start your detox. For good measure, always consult a physician before taking activated charcoal or any other oral supplements.

    Chlorella

    Although spirulina may be considered a popular healthy algae-turned-supplement, there’s something even better that you might have missed—chlorella. Coming from single-celled freshwater algae, chlorella is filled with amazing beneficial nutrients and is considered a superfood. It is packed with protein, vitamins, minerals, and lots of antioxidants. It is easily added to smoothie bowls or even your milk if you don’t mind the green color.

    A lot of studies on animals revealed that chlorella doesn’t only nourish the body but is an amazing detoxifying agent, from heavy metals to some biotoxins such as mold, it can definitely help your body get rid of it. Chlorella is also perfect for post-mold toxicity because you’ll be left feeling terrible due to the allergy-like symptoms and this superfood can be used to boost your immune system. 

    Say goodbye to mold and toxins in your body and try to detox after you get your house cleaned out from the toxic mold. You should always keep your body healthy—because you care for your family and a natural detox is the best way to do it. Check out mold testing Tampa for more information.
