It has been estimated that the DNA in each cell of the body suffers 10,000 oxidative hits per day, leading to the formation of more than 20 different oxidative DNA lesions. Human studies show lifestyle and other environmental influences may profoundly modify outcomes of aging.
It is not just environmental toxins (e.g., cigarette smoke, coal dust, and diesel emission particles) that pose a concern. Foods cooked at high temperatures also inflict cellular damage. Deep-fried foods along with well-done steak, hamburgers, and bacon cause the formation of gene-mutating heterocyclic amines. Even so-called healthy foods contain small amounts of undesirable substances.
Chlorophyllin has been shown to have DNA-protective and antioxidant properties, inhibiting DNA adduction. Chlorophyllin also quenches all major oxygen species and acts to protect mitochondria. It also has a role in preventing unavoidable dietary exposure to aflatoxin, a naturally occurring mycotoxin, by reducing its oral bioavailability.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I take several supplements to help de-tox the body. Have had long standing issues with heavy metals and a whole host of other neuro-toxins. In general I find it hard to say whether product has an immediate effect - as mostly they are about long term outcomes. But this one had several immediate effects. It is a little personal too discuss, but amongst the good effects was a marked reduction in body odour. Yes - I wash often! and wear a deodorant! and all the other things civilized beings do for personal hygiene. But this reduced any problem to such an extent that I no longer needed to wear deodorant at all. That along with a few other signs, convinces me that this stuff really does absorb toxic substances in the body, such as ammonia and sulfites.
Without getting into gory details, just let me say; this supplement is doing a great job of detoxing. Life Extension is one of the most reputable resources around. I trust them implicitly, and feel good about taking this.
