What is the significance of Detox Panel?
The DetoxSupport panel analyses genes that play a crucial role in the detoxification of toxic compounds by the liver.
Liver is the world’s most complex chemical laboratory. Numerous chemical reactions that are extremely complex happen at every moment of our lives inside the liver. One of the major functions of our liver is to detoxify harmful compounds either formed during metabolic processes or ingested by the body through food and water, like alcohol, pesticides and other such chemicals.
Through analyses of genes responsible for the production of enzymes related to the detoxification of toxic compounds, we can understand the inherent ability of the liver to protect our bodies from the harmful effects of toxic metabolites and by-products.
